gifts

One of our Chinese students that I've worked with over the past few months sent me this amazing folk art doll. It's a character from Chinese Opera--I think Mu Giuying. She now lives on my desk.
This lovely tin is full of really good shortbread (well, somewhat full--it is really good). I've been to all the places on the cover (and even toured the stables at Buckingham Palace to see the various carriages there).  

I'm off soon for our family gathering and another lovely long weekend.  
See you all in the New Year!  
Have a safe and happy holiday.

And all the best in 2013 Marjorie... I love the Chinese figure (and shortbread)
