A Confectionery Creation at Disney's Boardwalk Inn at Christmas

Today's post is one in a series of posts about some of the wonderful Christmas decorations at Walt Disney World for 2013. This post is comprised of some of the photos taken the afternoon we visited Disney's Boardwalk Inn and Villas. I have posted about Disney's Boardwalk in the past and about the wonderful boardwalk itself, with all its shops and entertainment. It can be found by exiting the Gateway to the World Showcase and taking a left, crossing the bridge at Crescent Lake. There is a world of entertainment and dining experiences to be enjoyed along the boardwalk. It is well worth the leisurely ten minute or so stroll from Epcot to check out the activity at Disney's Boardwalk and in the inn. At Christmastime, it is an extra special treat because of all the fabulous decorations. You will often find some of the characters in the main lobby during the evenings, including Mickey and Minnie Mouse, all decked out in their Christmas finery and ready to have their pictures

Sew an Animal Print Infinity Scarf

One of my grandchildren asked me to make something special for him to give to someone for Christmas. He is such a sweetheart and seldom asks for me to do anything, so how could I refuse? After all, it takes less than an hour to cut out and sew one of these animal print infinity scarves.
