For A Coffee Swap!!
It's been awhile since my last swap and I saw this one over at Robin of Knittin' Coop and I thought it looked right up my alley so I HAD to sign up. One of the requirements is to post the questionnaire. So....Here goes....

My favorite everyday drinking coffee is Starbuck's Breakfast Blend, I also enjoy coffee flavored such as Harry and David Chocolate Cherry and a mixture of cinnamon and hazelnut beans.
Do you prefer whole bean or ground coffee? WHOLE BEAN for sure!
This time of year, there are often Holiday Blends available, and many flavored coffees - do you drink flavored coffee? YES! I love flavored Beans and especially love the holiday coffees
Do you enjoy special blends? See above

Do you prefer drinking from a nice thick mug, or a matched cup and saucer? Love both! I am quite fond of pottery mugs or anything cute and sheepy
What is your favorite part of Winter? That spring is right behind it?? I love to be at home with a nice cup of coffee and my knitting when it snows but usually I have to go to work so that doesn't get to happen
Do you celebrate a holiday in December, and if so, which holiday? CHRISTMAS!!!
If you celebrate Christmas, do you put up a tree? Oh YES!

Do you wear scarves? Mittens? Hats? Scarves and Mittens...hats not so much unless it is REALLY REALLY cold and I have to be out for a bit.
What is your favorite holiday or winter treat? FUDGE!
Please share a favorite Winter or Holiday memory. This was when my kids were little and so were my niece and nephew. My sister and I were at Mom and Dad's with our families. I always brought Santa in big thick trashbags and my sis would sit up with me and help me wrap- We would eat fudge, bourbon balls and cheese ball. But the funniest was the night she had bought the REAL carrots- the ones with ALL the green on the end. The plan was the carrots were left for the reindeer and the cookies for Santa. Now I had no problem taking care of the cookies but it was not so much fun standing on the back porch in the cold cold biting on those carrots to make them look like the reindeer had bitten them. I must confess that I told her next time we were breaking them off and just leaving the green part!! Love those Christmas memories.
Yarn and Crafting Do you Knit or Crochet? KNIT!
