...receiving handmade gifts. These have to be my favorite gift in a long time. My Mother in Law made them and I find them so cool. The pattern is from here via sew mama sew. In case you did not see them or know what they are they are hair rollers. How fantastic would I look with these little numbers holding my hair to form curly locks? Not only did she 1-painstakingly make these she 2-used fabulous fabric and 3- completed them with vintage buttons. I know one thing....they are definitely destined for display.

I spent the day cleaning and putting away the Christmas decor. A week later then I like but we have had strep go through almost everyone in our little home and that kept me occupied.
Isn't it amazing how much bigger a room looks after you take down the tree, it isn't up that long yet during the time it is up I get so used to it that I don't think about the space that is missing. Not to me mention all of the do-dads and what-nots that make up the Christmas decor.
Next week will be the first full week back at work and school for us all. Aw-well vacation is never long enough is it? Enjoy the recipe.
2- Cans Black eyed peas-drained and rinsed
1- Can green chilies-drained
1-chopped green onion
½- red, green, and yellow pepper, chopped
1- Tomato seeded and chopped
1- Can white shoe peg corn- drained
1- tsp finally chopped garlic
1- Small jalapeño pepper chopped (optional)
1- 8 oz bottle of Italian dressing
Throw together in a pretty bowl (or a plain maroon one) and serve with chips… Or just a spoon (yes it is that good)
And it is even better the next day!!
