Years back my mother gave me this antique German flask with a spirited and jolly old Santa on the front. I laughed at the humor in it – and kind of feel like this today…balancing both hands with things that need to be done around the house.

Priorities…like Santa, only with coffee!

You might like a little hot chocolate with a drop of peppermint schnapps! it goes very well with decorating!

I love your Santa mug. Wonder how old it is. I'll take the coffee, too. :)

The balancing act, at times, can be difficult. Love the sweet little flask and those bottle brush trees are too cute.

I love that flask. I have never seen anything even close to it, so you have a rare Christmas treasure here.

What an adorable piece Becky. I know what you mean about balancing, I've been doing quite a bit of that myself lately!

Just popping by to see what you've been up to, it's been awhile since I visited. Those black bottom cupcakes look divine and the "green soup" - yumm!

Enjoy the season!

Love it Becky. I spotted that flask right off the bat. It is truly beautiful and yep I know
how old Santa feels sometimes.
I do the same thing only with
coffee too.

I think we all feel like this at this time of year. We just need to recharge our batteries once in awhile. When I drive by homes and see Christmas trees and lights already, I catch my breath for a second. But I know better to hold myself up to others standards. So I am taking it slow, and yes, I have a lot of coffee!


PS...Made your Black Bottom Cupcakes. They were delish but you forgot the sugar. I caught it in time! lol!

Neat post. I'm going to try your soup recipe this week. Cold and gloomy around here. Soup time.

I haven't been by in awhile....I sure enjoyed catching up, reading through till I hit bottom. Looks like you've got more than a good start to your Christmas decor. Everything was so warm and inviting. I would imagine you've got a few scented candles burning to match the mood of your festive setting.
You know it's said rum-eggnog from a flask enhances the flavor. {-;

Sweet holiday wishes,
