Hard to believe we are at the last holidays of this year, 2018 will soon be in the past, and we'll be celebrating another new year! Happy to say that although I wasn't able to get all the cards I wanted to mailed out on time I did do quite well and only have some cookie baking left to do.
As usual I have lots to share so I will start with a few more photos from Cape May.
This was the typical breakfast set up at Leith Hall. Always a bowl of fresh fruit, coffee and tea. The food varied each morning: raspberry pancakes or scrambled eggs with cream cheese and dill or brioche French toast. There were also little sausages, and some type of muffin. And if anyone has any food allergies, etc. Elan will always accommodate! Another reason we love this B&B so much!
and this was another teatime afternoon. On the left was an almond and berry shortcake type cake and next to it a chocolate peanut butter bar- both to die for!! Happy to share with my friends at T Stands For Tuesday :)
We made a visit to see the decorations at Congress Hall Hotel:
I love this cabinet in The Brown Room all decorated with seashells and such, along with the fire that warmed me a bit before going back outside:
This is another B & B and I forgot the name, but thought it was so pretty with the blue lit angels. We took very few photos of the decorations this time around as we have so many from other visits-lol!
On to the art now-yay!

Remember in my last post where I posted my winnings from Ranger and mentioned keeping the packaging tape? Only thing was, I didn't realize at first that where I tore it on the left- the word "stress" is what remained and I didn't want stress so I added the word no above it and boxed it in:)

" It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich eternal and that every path may lead to peace."
