Where the only china we use is red, with little green trees on it.
And the daily menu reads:
Breakfast ... Egg casserole
Dinner...Green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, cheesy potato casserole.
I could go on, but you get the gist.
Santa comes not once, but twice: on December 25 & 26
Anise flavored candy cane, holly leaf, and star-shaped cookies are served
alongside decorated butterflies, scottie dogs, and apples.
And everyone dons their trees with these lovely, hand-made
ornaments by Grandma.
On a side note, Grandma's ornaments were featured this holiday season at Trend 440 in Monroe, Michigan. I'm so proud of her - at 87, she is still making beautiful things and seeking out new challenges. To build her brand, I enlisted the help of my very talented friend B and together we designed a logo specially for Grandma. I had it made into a stamp for her to try out on Christmas Day.

Here's to taking a cue from Grandma, and filling 2012 with creativity, generosity and fearlessness.
