Cocoa and Cookies



Come sit a spell with me, won't you?



Won't you  join me for some hot cocoa and some iced sugar cookies?

Gingerbread men---- hold the ginger!  



Hope this finds you enjoying the chilly days of December!

Definitely ♥-ing all the plaid AND your paper-glitter-glue projects, too!

It's about time for my personal motivation to kick in! Here's hoping...

Oh, how inviting! Such a sweet vignette and are those square marshmallows? Don't know why I mentioned them of all things considering you have so many pretty touches there...maybe because at the store today I saw a bag of them and each one must have been at least 4"...the biggest I've ever seen! Would make for great Smores!

Ann@A Sentimental Life said...

all your plaid just looks wonderful. Now i am hungry for a cookie!

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

Alison,
I love all of your plaid items! And that arrangement in that boot is gorgeous. Your porch would be a perfect place for some hot chocolate, as long as I got those big, honking marshmallows in my cup.

So cute. I too have incorporated a throw into my back porch scheme, but unfortunately I couldn't find a good holiday plaid - very jealous of yours! Looks beautiful. And we woke up to snow this morning - I bet it looks lovely. Liz

Robin@DecoratingTennisGirl said...

Cute as can be, Alison! I wish we were closer, as I would be right over for some yummy cocoa and cookies!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I could just imagine sitting there drinking hot cocoa after a day of ice skaing, Alison!

Carolyn@SweetChaos said...

Hey friend... loving all your plaid! So perfect this time of year!! You really shouldn't tease with the cookies though. I might actually turn up on your porch :)

Teresa@oursoutherncountryhomeandfarm said...

Awe, you couldn't get rid of me if I lived closer to you! You are really making me wish I had been buying all of the plaid things I have been passing up! Going to browse around over here for a while. I have had so much fun playing around in blogland this past week. Stop by when you get a minute and look at my bedroom mantle, I actually thought of you when I did it.

Teresa@oursoutherncountryhomeandfarm said...

Oh wait, I got to yapping like I so often do and forgot to tell you that I love the white ice skates!

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

So pretty makes me wanting to go grab some cocoa. Looks so inviting and cozy.

Olive Cooper said...

I am mad for your plaid. I passed up an old set of plaid thermos bottles and am now kicking myself.

Pattie said...

Alison I am so sorry I have not been over. It's so hard to get around to everyone... Love all your Christmas Decorations... Happy Holidays to you and your family

Your photos are so appealing to me. Just love it all. I do believe I have those same mugs. I found them with a little plaid coffee pot to go with them. :)

Oh yes, I would love to join you for a cup of hot cocoa in this setting!

Linda said...

I love your vignette, Alison...all the plaid and coziness! I just picked up another pair of white skates, just because of their cute gingham lining!

Thought I left you another comment but don't see it! Sorry if it shows up..don't mean to pester you! ;) I sent you an email asking if you could tell me the name of the artist who sang Tennessee Waltz you had on your blog awhile back. Thought my husband would maybe like that for his bd.
Thank you!
Donna
