Christmas Cookies with Pottery Barn

Merry Christmas Eve!
Last night we made cookies for Santa with these adorable Santa measuring cups & measuring spoons from Pottery Barn. It was so much fun and these were a great addition to our yearly tradition.
These two were my helpers. Every year I take pictures of them helping me. It's so fun to see how much they remember from the year before.   This year we also drew with fabric markers on their aprons before we started cooking.

Here are our cookies for Santa... the best part, watching them watch them rise!

Just wanted to let you know the measuring cups today are on sale at  Pottery Barn for 
9.99!! That's a steal for these ceramic cups!

Thanks for stopping by friends!

DIY Christmas Cocoa Station

Hi friends! Happy Christmas eve EVE!
Today I am sharing my cute DIY cocoa station with you...
I started off buying these mugs at flea markets, thrift stores and then found some on eBay. I started shoppin in October, I know - it's crazy but if you want cheap it's always best to buy when it's not in season. I got some of theses mugs as low as 2.75! The most I paid for one with shipping was 9. The tray I had was from Ikea for a whopping 2.75. Once I brought this tray out my son's face was so excited! This is sure to be a hit with my big kids too! I can't wait for Christmas morning!
As I was on my hunt I found ceramic figures and Santa's boot.

Look how adorable this face!

This mug here is actually a  Josef Original I had no idea these were collectables! Score!

I even found this candle for a $1!


Here is a up close picture of this Santa I brought home.

I stuffed Santa's boot with candy canes

along with some candy cane spoons for stirring.

I even purchased some to give away as gifts for my sweet friends.

I was lucky to find this Vintage Santa that has a drawstring, when you pull it plays "We wish you a Merry Christmas"

last but not least... I leave you my sweet grandbaby admiring my $12 vintage Santa.
I will have to confess with you... I'm a lil addicted to Santa's sweet lil face!  
Friends! I wish you a wonderful Christmas and may God bless you with love!

p.s links to some cups that look vintage - hey maybe you can purchase them at 60% off after Christmas sales!
