Blog Party and a Charade

The party goes on, the door is open, and everybody is welcome in my kitchen! Have a drink, grab a cookie, and have a good time socializing! A few latecomers just walked in.

A great and very talented blogger Randyjw of came with a caption for my charade picture: DOPPEL-GINGER. Very clever, thank you, Randy!

Melinda, the funny funky purple person of, got her gun and went meme-hunting. This is her trophy.


Thank you, Melinda, they are adorable, and they look like my husband’s baby pictures!

Finally, dear Sasha of tells about her visit to the Gingrebread City.


Dear friends,

I hope your festive preparations are going nice and smooth!  And just to give you a little boost and inspiration, here are some photos from our recent visit to the Gingerbread City in London Museum of Architecture!

Secondly, I haven’t realized that I have already created more than 200 posts, in less than seven months. It might not be a whole lot, but to me it is a milestone, and I don’t plan to stop there!

To show my appreciation and my gratitude to all of you, I am serving Festiv-e-Teas (please see here) and Chocolate on Chocolate Cookies with Extra Blessings (please see here).


And here is a charade for your entertainment: my granddaughter…

    1. Your cat meme is the best! The inside joke is that those kittens look like my husband’s baby pictures, which means they look like my twin stepkids!
