Fairy floss cookie

I get completely torn between an old fashioned red and green Christmas and a fairy land of pastels.

                                                           Pastels won today!

I love the soft patina on vintage ornaments - rosy pinks, blues, and silver.  And speaking of silver, I am glad I didn't have to do a large number of these with the garland of dragees - talk about a labor of love!

We put up our tree yesterday and it is full of colored lights (the kids won't have it any other way), blown glass ornaments and ones made with little hands over the years (and I wouldn't have THAT any other way).  This year we are starting another tree tradition - an Irish tree!  My kids have given my mother Irish ornaments for Christmas each year and she has them all on one little tree.  She and Isabelle decorated it over the Thanksgiving weekend, and we decided it was time for one of our own.  We put up a white tabletop tree with white lights and our small Irish collection along with some green and gold glass balls.

Tomorrow will be all about the red and green, but for today it's Ireland and fairy floss -and it feels
