I would much rather read a well-loved classic than a new novel, and when Penguin books came out with their new collection of beautifully embossed classics, I instantly fell in love. This Christmas, my youngest daughter gave me my first of these books, "The Secret Garden" to begin my own collection of favorite titles. My oldest daughter gave me this beautiful glass calligraphy tray, which I have secretly admired for quite a while. I adore both gifts and feel so loved they know me so well. Another favorite gift, sent from my Mom in California, was a box of "Nuts & Chews" from See's Candies. I must admit, I think I ate three quarters of the box all by myself and thoroughly enjoyed every bite of that yummy caramel and nougat!
