  • ominately homemade holiday.

    My friend Pernilla suggested that all gifts should be ones that can “be used up” for a good purpose. So, something one could eat, use to cook with, to bathe with; perhaps something we could decorate with and when finished it would be a good addition to the compost pile? 

    I have planned ahead a bit: this summer when I was canning and processing things from the garden, I did extra so I could give them as heartfelt thanks to friends during the holidays.
