  Sorry it's not a great picture but it works.
This cake is soooo good and I love that you don't have to peel the apples.

Know someone who collects Heisey glass?  We have some beautiful pieces in shop now.

Here is a little history about Heisey.

It was produced in colors throughout the life of the factory, but the most prolific period of color manufacturing was from 1925 to 1938 
The majority of the pieces are impressed with the company logo, a raised capital letter "H" inscribed in a diamond

My goal for January is to get back to blogging.  I'm starting early.  Keep checking back for more posts more often.

I have always loved old Santa images.  Here is a collection that I found on the web. 
Just fun.  I was going to post my favorite but they all got to me.
Hope you enjoy looking at them.
