My good friend Leslie
made me this wonderful crocheted purse for Christmas.
I was so shocked when I opened it. During the beginning of this year, she had a pattern she was attempting for the first time and I helped her with reading all the symbols. From that pattern, she made a purse for herself that was black and taupe colored. I just never imagined she would give the pattern another go and actually make one for me. I just love brown and red together.
She also made me toffee.
My kids thought it was heavenly and wanted to know why I never make it. I have never attempted toffee before, but I've recently visited two other blogs that posted the recipe, so I am thinking I will have to give it a try. You can find the recipes here and here. Julie and Zuzu both have beautiful blogs to visit.
