Stamped Shortbread Surprise
June 5, 2012 | My Jottings
Yesterday a lot was accomplished. There are still pictures to hang and shelves to a large bookcase to find (how can large shelves go missing?), but our new house is starting to look and feel like home.
What my daughters do in one hour is about what I would get done in a day. I have thanked God many times for their help during this move.
Carolyn stopped by again yesterday afternoon to bring by a housewarming gift, created by her husband Jeremy and their youngest child Audrey, age 4. They made shortbread cookies stamped with a B for our last name, and Sara and I both agreed it was the best shortbread we’ve ever eaten. I’m pretty sure they had sugar in them and I ate them anyway.
The letter B is so unique – I asked Carolyn how Jeremy did that and she said, “Oh, he just made his own stamp.” He does things like that. Just makes/welds/sews/forges things on his own when the need arises.
Jeremy told me later that apparently Audrey thought they were going to make shortbread with bees on them, so when she saw the letter B on each cookie, she was disappointed that they weren’t “stripey bees.”
Have you ever received a unique housewarming gift? What was the best or the strangest one you’ve ever gotten?
