  9. Doesn't the snow give everything a new beauty? Love this picture with the urn. As for the sconces - yum! I make them with orange and cranberry. Never thought of doing it with almond milk - will give it a try.

    Cheers to a wonderful 2013

  15. Your scones look delicious, Linda! I have got to find a gluten free recipe for those. There are so many different GF flours you could use, but I'm sure I'd pick the wrong one without some kind of recipe!
