My Christmas Tree 2021 – Sweet Southern Blue

I decided to go very neutral this year since I am putting my Christmas tree up in my dining room. Neutral with the exception of a few pops of blue. I could not have a tree without my beloved blue. I painted a few pine cones with some white paint, wrapped some with jute, used […]

CAPTURING THAT SPECIAL MOMENT BY THE CHRISTMAS TREE | Sweet Southern Blue

  My mother plugged in the lights on her Christmas tree so my grandson could see it. He walked over to it and reached up to grab a light and I managed to get this one shot before eveyone yelled at him not to touch the tree. Since I didn’t have the flash on, I […]

CREAMY HOT CHOCOLATE; Freeze and heat later for a quick treat! | Sweet Southern Blue

I have never been a fan of the powdered hot chocolate mix you can purchase in your local supermarket.  I still make it the way I did when I was a child, with milk, cocoa, and sugar.  Each cup of cocoa is different.  Sometimes I add caramel topping, cinnamon, hot fudge, marshmallows, or whipped cream.
