Merriment, Day 3

Merriment Days sponsored by Misi and Robyn have been so much fun and this is day three. I have enjoyed participating in this and day 3 takes me to one of my favorite Christmas traditions. Making Christmas ornaments with my friend Carol.  We both have one tree filled with gingerbread and applesauce cinnamon ones we have made over the years. We have been friends for over 30 years and have our traditions!
Can you imagine how good this tree smells?  It makes me happy to look at it. Just like it makes me happy for you to come Through My Back Door, where life is good.

  11. What a lovely image. I was just thinking today, as my best friend just left from our lunch date, that no matter what you have in life, it's no good without one friend who you can always be true to and rely on. -Steph-

  15. Well, sweet friend, I'm a little slow in getting here - hope you will forgive and understand....but I'm here now - and WOW! GORGEOUS tree!!! If I got to choose just a few blog homes to "tour," yours would certainly be among them....
