  8. Oh such pretty featured posts!

    I have to admit I actually squealed about the mini Resee Cup pies, I am so going to try that...but have to wait till hubs is gone b/c he is allergic to nuts.

    Yes, I am a closet Resee cup eater!

    Thank you for hosting your pretty linky party!!

  15. Hi Kathryn!
    Thank you for hosting this party!
    I have decided to link up our traditional table cener piece in Croatia – Advent Corolla. It has 4 candles – symbols for 4 Sundays prior to Christmas. At every Sunday dinner, family lights up candles; yesterday we have light first candle, next Sunday two etc… These candles are put out not by blowing but with piece of bread dipped in wine, usually done by the youngest in the house.
    I also link traditional Nativity scene placed under the Christmas tree. It is assembled at Christmas Eve by whole family. The figures of Three Wise Men travel slowely toward Jesus' crib untill Epiphany (Jan. 6th) when they meet Jesus.
    I hope you will like it!
