You are hereby officially declared the Queen of Everything Cookie. I wish I lived closer and could sit and have a cup of tea and one of these lovely little shortbreads with you!

Yummmmm, wow. This looks great. Neat shortbread mold. And cookie molds in prior post!

I put on a crock-pot of veggie soup today as we come out of the stuffing phase of Thanksgiving; need some simple healthy purifying!

Next, Christmas!

OH this looks so gorgeous and yummy all at once. I see you saw the Cat card Cat made me. Is that the most beautiful thing in the world. It is going right into my cat collection, not my ATC's. No way! I cannot believe it is just mine as an RAK. You try to steal it and I'll be sneaking in your studio window to get it back. Now I'm going to go really study this recipe and see if maybe I can make it.

I just saw your post about the sock exchange. Today is 11/26/07 and I too am not sure about doing it. You posted it 11/10. I have too many socks already and I only wear white or black or brown solid colored ones. Wouldn't really want funky ones. Sorry Vic broke the chain by mistake, but would have anyway.
