Sorry for the long delay. . .it has been a hectic month. I loved all the recipes, and we are gradually trying each of them. Although we did have our open house it was without homemade cookies except for my springerle that I had made early Dec. We had a flooded kitchen. . . .if you do not know how to turn off your water at the main turnoff at the street I recommend it!! I did not, and the turnoff valve for the hot water under my kitchen sink was corroded till it would not move and after 10 minutes of steaming water you can imagine what my kitchen looked like. A ruined hard wood floor, etc. Luckily my neighbor was home and knew how to turn off the water. It turned my December upside down in one afternoon. Anyway, now for some good news. Carol you won the cookie contest blog give-a-way! Please email me your address so I can send you $50 in greens (silk 'n colors!!). Carol submitted a Chocolate Candy Cane Cookie Recipe and she was the chosen comment #.
I forgot that I started spotlighting green earlier in the year. I guess I'm just now finishing 'green' up! Now for some information on green:
The symbolic meaning is renewal of life and nature.
Green has a Biblical meaning and is the Christian color for the season of Ephiphany.
There are many cheap dyes and plants that produce a variety of green colors.
Green is closely associated with the medieva legend of Robin Hood.
Green is said to be the most restful color for the human eye. Some say that green can soothe pain and has great healing power.
I hope you had a lovely and restful Christmas.
Dyeing - threads that is - until later. . .
