The best treats come in bite size pieces, made with GREAT love. Oh Koralee, what a blessing you are to ME! I am in my basement again, trying to finish this paper dress. Every 15 minutes, I take a break from ruffles and hot glue to come visit my friends on the computer. You have given me a smile today! ARE YOU HAVING FUN AT HOME????????????

MUCH LOVE MY PRETTY PASTEL BON BON! Anita

You know- I have been looking for a recipe like this for a long time. My mother used to call them butter mints and it is the first recipe I have seen that does not involve cooking. I am copying this to use! Thanks-xo Diana

Oh sweet friend!

I remember those days of having the entire classroom ill and what would happen? Mother Goose (me) would get the bug too!!!!!

I pray you are well SOON so that you can revel in sweet joy with your family. THE DAY IS ALMOST HERE and I just know that you have worked so hard to get the homestead ready. I can only imagine that your home is so bright with joy and little happiness strewn all over....I WILL EMAIL YOU a photo of the work I am doing but also hope that by my post AFTER my Christmas post, I can share the completed project! Thank you for asking my sweet one.

Back later, Anita
