Holiday Gift Ideas #2: Homemade

I have been a busy little elf.....

Mr. H asked Mrs. H why she went to bed so late last night...
Mrs. H replied.... "ummmm"
Mr. H asked what she finds to occupy herself until 1:00am?
Mrs. H replied.... "Oh...this and that, I was a busy little elf" 
and smiled before quickly departing for the morning school run.

Mrs. H was minding her Pinterest last night.
Shhhhhhhhh........ :)

This little elf has a few Christmas ideas for you.
The above is "Quick Bread in a Bottle"
You can find the recipe here.

You can view the rest of my homemade 
Christmas finds and much more

Off to start working on my ideas...hope you find some too.
Best wishes for a lovely weekend to one and all!


  1. Dear Jeanne,
    You and me both !! I am always up until 1 or 2 a.m.......I get so carried away on the internet !
    Our children were given the cookie mixture in a jar from a relative and, they were a great success. I am off to see what else kept you up into the wee small hours !!
    Have a fun weekend. XXXX

  2. Looked at your Pinterest Board and was almost breathless with excitement. So much to little time!

  3. Hi Jeanne

    The night owls were busy last night, what a hoot! At least you found loot.
    Oh I shall stop here. I, too, went to say goodnight to my studio, at 11.00 p.m and a painting called me and in five minutes it was 2.00 am.


    I love your post and shall visit Pinterest

    My best for a joyful weekend

  4. Isn't; Pinterest amazing?! I found some really cute earring holders made out of old frames and twigs glued across. Perfect as a Christmas present idea for my bohemian (step) daughter.

  5. Well, first of all, I do see your nails look oh so nice!! Yesterday, I had so much fun shopping off of Etsy as well as Williams Sonoma online. We have to ship ALL gifts so these options make it so easy...and fun!

  6. Jeanne,

    You made me laugh so hard, between pinterest and blogs I think I could stay up all night.

    I hope you are having a great week.


  7. Pinterest, so many things to see and great ideas.I love the look of the "Quick Bread in a Bottle" idea.

  8. I've had to limit myself to just one visit a week to Pinterest. I was spending too much time drooling/ dreaming and not enough time painting!

  9. Hmmm yes, I know all about mindn=ing my own Pinterest !!!

  10. Oh, you are a clever little elf! Did you actually do the incredible wreath? So much fun.

    Hope all is well in all ways in your world my dear Jeanne.


  11. What a great idea that bread in a bottle is! LOVE it!

  12. It's fun, being a night owl elf. And your wreath is pure genius!

  13. Sounds like you are making some progress with your Christmas shopping. I definitely need to get started with mine! Have a great weekend.

  14. Soooooooo many cute things! Plaid Tidings :)

  15. Thank you for so many fabulous ideas!

  16. oooh this bread sounds yummy! I'll be up late trying it out! smiles

  17. Hi Jeanne!
    Thanks so much for finding me on my blog! It's so nice to meet a fellow plaid lunch box collector!
    I will see what I can find for you.
    I know there is an antique mall in Columbus, Wisconsin that has one. It is the only place I had ever seen one and I should have bought it!

    Have had a couple months of regret and then i found the green one on my post on Ebay last week, so there is hope! More of them out there I think, Jeanne!

    If I find one more, I will send you the link!
