Reached the end of my sweet hopes

 Sometimes happiness is composed of small things, small gestures of others who were anonymous for some time and suddenly, one day cease to be,  and then they become part of your thinking and your daily life. 
 No, I do not mean the postman... , the postman gave me a joy this morning...

 Some time ago, I found a blog that I liked and I started to frequent, Vande Historic Costuming,  she makes the most wonderful costumes you can enjoy and I do not cease to be amazed by her ability.
 Last mont, she returned to amaze me when she decided to make a gift, on the anniversary of her blog, with much honesty on her way to choose the winner.
  I´m eternally grateful, twice... one for the gift, and once she had begun in me a new "vice"....
 collection of old patterns.
 Now I haven´t excuse to sew a hat with every dress!!
                                           Thanks so much, dear E.

                                     To celebrate it, I gave my family a sweet "honey bows"
                        If you want to try, you need to puff pastry, condensed milk and honey.

  Cut strips of pastry and "paste" with condensed milk instead joining two strips each.
 Twisting to form bows, "irrigate" this with a mixture of honey, condensed milk and water equal parts, all warm.

  Place the oven heated to 180º C until the "bows" are golden.
 Cool slightly and return to "irrigate" the ties with the mixture of water, honey and condensed milk.
 Sprinkle with powdered sugar, these bows will be better the next day.

                                                Happy sewing whit flavor of Chritsmas...

    Hey, you stopped by recently and read a post about my giveaway. I bet you were confused when you read it because none of the details were there! What happened is that I accidentally published the post before I was done writing it! I now have all the details in case you're interested. :-)
