Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas dear kitcheners!

Hope your holiday is filled with all sorts of delicious delights and that you are staying warm and cozy. We are spending the holiday cooking up a whole new batch of vintage recipes and stories that I can’t wait to share with you.

The Greenhouse Diaries are on break for the holiday, but we’ll be back next week to share lots of news of how our little growing station has fared on these chilly days and nights. In the meantime, the geraniums surprised us this week with enough new blooms in pink and red to make a bouquet for Christmas Day.

Sending lots of love and good wishes for a happy holiday.


Merry Christmas!


Dear beloved readers…

With much love from,

Merry Christmas!


Merry Christmas dear readers! Ms. Jeannie hopes that you are all having a wonderful holiday. She and Mr. Jeannie are visiting with friends for a few days where the Christmas cactus is in full bloom, the farm table offers a constant bevy of homebaked marvels and laughter fills the air from morning til night. Hope your last few days of 2013 are just as delightful.

Cheers to happy holidays!

Love Ms. Jeannie

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from Ms. Jeannie to you!
Merry Christmas from Ms. Jeannie to you!

“Christmas was close at hand, in all his bluff and hearty honesty; it was the season of hospitality, merriment, and open-heartedness; the old year was preparing, like an ancient philosopher, to call his friends around him, and amidst the sound of feasting and revelry to pass gently and calmly away.”

                            – an excerpt from The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens

However you celebrate, dear readers, may your holidays be happy and bright, merry and marvelous!  Wishing you all a lovely Christmas day!
