  13. Dearest Saskia,

    Great blog and cinnamon is SO HEALTHY! It lowers the blood sugar level so for a lot of people it is very beneficial. Even those that dislike it till now might change their minds...

    Lots of love,

  15. Saskia-
    Who wouldn't be thrilled to get one of these as a precious little gift! You always make the most adorable gifts! Your new blog header is fabulous!


  16. Hi Saskia! I'm leaving you a happy thought ♥
    Cinnamon is just a wonderful scent. They say... when trying to stay awake to chew cinnamon gum. Cinnamon is also such a warm and friendly scent + flavor!
    happy happy thoughts!
    My pan will hopefully come tomorrow. It says delivered, but I think that means to my local post office. Must be tomorrow!
    Someone baked a cake in a similar pan and brought it to school today! Oh how pretty a cake!
    Saskia, I loved the comment you left me about Francis' school and how it is this week before Christmas. I told my husband AND my students about it.
    It's wonderful to shine His Light whenever and wherever possible ♥
    Blessings to you always* Maria
