Whiskers On Kittens



Don't you just love my two new gorgeous bowls - they are part of my early Christmas present from the hubby - been eying them (and other things) at the antique store lately!



So the first thing I had to do was use them for something grand - like stringing up festive popcorn and cranberry garland! Never done it before, but was quite a hoot. The dogs kept snatching up any stray kernels and cranberries that went haywire in the process and the cat kept ninja attacking the strand.

Definitely bought too much cranberries though - hoping to whip up some cranberry salad with the left overs!

That sounds like fun. I was thinking it would be fun to do next year with my niece and daughter!

That does sound like fun! I've never made popcorn or cranberry garlands, despite romanticizing the idea as a kid. Did you hang them on the tree, or elsewhere?

We made cranberry and popcorn garlands in college. I found it surprisingly rough on the fingers, but maybe our needle was dull. :-)

BerryBird - We hung them around the house - but once it is stale we will hang them on our little trees outside for the birds!

Nadine - Yeah, it was tough! I kept poking my finger on the needle!
