Sugarplum Fairy Tea

Hello my dear blogging friends ~

I must apologize that I haven't kept up my Christmas Pudding blog very well this season. There is so much going on. I'm sure you all know what I mean. Christmas is such a busy time.

I did host a Sugarplum Fairy Tea this week at my other blog, Rose Chintz Cottage. If you would like to see more of it please click here.

 I shared my new found green tranferware trio which I love.

I also shared a variety of sweets including my fruit cake.

I will be sharing the recipe for my fruit cake tomorrow at my HOME for the Holidays party at my blog Rose Chintz Cottage.

I will try to post again before Christmas and until then have a joyous week and ....

Merry Christmas!

And I have started the tree. The angel awaits the rest of the touches below her.

Last week I began the first of my Christmas baking with Cranberry Squares. You can find the recipe here.

What have you been doing to get ready for the holidays?

Till next time, I'm keeping .....
