Homemade Mascarpone Cheese.  I haven't tried it, but I am going to.  Found on Baking Obsession.   Mascarpone is so expensive.   If this works it will be a lot cheaper!

This little wine cork reindeer is so cute!  I love it.  I wonder if I can buy wine corks.  WE don't drink wine so we don't have any.   From  Mom's Menu Planner.

And that's it for this week!  I hope you found something useful here!  I know I did!

A thought to carry with you through today  . . .

Things which sound like platitudes
become vital, living and powerful
when you have to learn them
in dark tunnels.

And I do too!


  1. Enjoy your day Marie. I hope you find a source of wine corks. That animal is sweet as sweet.

    God bless.

  2. Thanks Suzan! I am going to work hard to source them! xoxo

  3. I wonder if you could ask a hotel, pub or restaurant and ask if they could keep them for you?

  4. a wine/beer making supply shop would carry bags of them (corks) and they wouldn't have corkscrew holes in them :) xoxo

  5. Hi, Marie! Love the holiday spirit here today... LOL! Those Peppermint Oreo Pop look sooo festive--YUM! Those sheet music snowmen are very cute. My hubby is the king of pancakes & waffle-making. He's the one minding the waffle iron on weekends... LOL! I should make him a mix as a Christmas gift! LOVE, love, love that carved pumpkin car & camper!! I'm late visiting this week... It's been busy days here lately too. Especially as we begin end-of-season garden clean up between every other week deluges of rain--bracing for more next week! Happy Weekend to all of you there!! :o) ((LOVE & BIG HUGS))

  6. I see you have Christmas on the brain:)
