High Heel Butter Cookies
6 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups butter (4 sticks)
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups sugar
We suggest using a standing mixer to prepare this dough.
Cream sugar and butter until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs and flavoring. Mix dry ingredients in separate bowl and add to butter mixture. Mix well.
Put a handful of the freshly made dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll to desired thickness. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Put the rolled dough, including the parchment paper on a cookie sheet and refrigerate for 10 minutes or longer. Your dough will be chilled and ready to cut and bake with no wait and no added flour! Repeat the process with scraps after cutting cookies.
Bake at 250 degrees for 8-10minutes. Let cool on rack.
Yield: 8 dozen 3" cookies. Recipe may be cut on half.
Note: This dough will not spread while baking and is perfect for cutting out various shapes and sizes.

Arrange Bright bulbs for a festive wreath. Strung bulbs together on a piece of 16 gauge wire about 15 inches long. Then attached the bulbs to the wreath. Be sure to wire in place for security.
The mantel features my painted mural design, which boasts a round mirror in the center.
The evergreen garland is fresh and made from my gold thread cypress tree. Wiring 4 branches of limbs together, stacked them on top of each other, then attached to a long rope created the garland.
Using the same technique for the bulb wreath, I wired the bulbs to the cypress garland.
The side bookcase walls were painted the lime green to help show off the black and white dinnerware.
A few red ball ornaments, mostly 4 inch in size were tucked in on each
When you do a project like this purchase extra bulbs... you will break a few. The floor in this room is white
12 x 12 " tiles... glass went everywhere.. more than one.
Great fun and so bright!!!

Holiday Sassyscapes TM
WSLS 10 Roanoke, Virginia
Serve it up Sassy ….Pretty in Patterns
Rustic but sophistication in presentation illustrates this festive holiday sassyscape ™… table scape. The key to success is commonality in color.
The color theme began with the plaid black, red, and white runner. Using solid white square plates allow you to play with pattern. In this case, zebra, black and white. The small square salad plate rests on top of the white dinner plate. This is all grounded by the standard red square charger. Keeping the plates and charger the same shape adds continuity.
For a clever complement to the place setting, a red water glass sporting a black fan folded napkin sits pretty near the flatware filled mini Christmas stocking. As the centerpiece, cut fresh greenery and rustic log pillars in various heights with white candles in glass canisters half full of snow, Epsom salts, help set this Yuletide Elegance.
To change it up, omit the tablecloth and set the patterned pieces and solid plates against a bare table. Change the napkin fold and color to red. By adding the traditional signs of Christmas such as hemlock, pine and holly branches along with the rustic bark covered candle holders, glass pillars and red candles or Christmas ornaments will certainly give multiple decorating opportunities.
Simple dishes, like colorful salad plates make it easy for interchanging and create endless options. Stick to timeless white china, and let other elements be the center of attention.

Serve it up Sassy...Decorating your home for the Holidays
Sassyscape ™ alias tablescape ideas include using a red tablecloth, but add black and white. From a plaid runner to black painted chalkboard placemats to red square or black round chargers, all will transition well with the white dinner plate and festive salad plates in same color palate.
The key to success is commonality in color. Simple dishes make it easy for interchanging and create endless decorating opportunities. Other transitional pieces include various sized glass canisters with candles. Using Epsom salts as “snow” as one centerpiece idea, and adding a few fresh sprigs of hemlock and holly leaves with berries completed the rustic but fun “Let it Snow” theme.
Another fun idea was snuggling a black sweater boot legging over the glass canister to create added texture and warmth to the occasion.
Food for thought: Did you know that Breakfast is the only table setting that a cup with saucer or mug is set. So on Christmas morning bring on the hot chocolate or mocha’s, be sure to add the peppermint stick and whipped cream. This is Christmas…go all out! Serve Cranberry Orange Scones, Cranberry Orange Jam and Ginger Orange Juice to round out your Christmas morning continental breakfast. See recipes on Home page.
To wrap this up…stick with timeless white or cream dinnerware and let other elements be the center of attention. For the walls, halls and other rooms in your home, use the same color theme from your beautiful dinning sassyscape ™. Fresh greens of pine and spruce mixed in garlands and wreaths with shiny red and silver glass ornaments, with or without a red bow always make a grand statement.
The smell of Christmas is in the air...take a breath and enjoy every moment.
Make a Statement, Make it Sassy and Make it Yours!
