On the Fourth Day of Christmas....

Welcome to the fourth day of the TCET Christmas. Do we have some treats in store for you!
Today we meet Laura of PrairiePeasant. Laura is from Winnipeg, Manitoba. PrairiePeasant is a shop full of beautiful paper items, including bound journals, cards, and tags.
Laura also has a second etsy shop called prairiethreads, which is her fibre and fabric inspired shop.

Laura is appealing to those readers with a sweet tooth. She divulged that:
“This is THE BEST recipe for Caramel Popcorn I have ever tried. We love to have this over the holidays.” Caramel Popcorn  
2 cups brown sugar  
1 cup butter or margarine  
1/2 cup corn syrup  
1 tsp salt  
1/2 tsp baking soda  
1 tsp vanilla  
Boil first three ingredients for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and add last three ingredients. Pour over 7 litres or popped popcorn, mix well. Bake at 250 F for 1 hour. Stir every 15 minutes. Let cool and store in airtight containers. You can also reduce the popcorn to 6 litres and added some pecans.

Before you rush off to the kitchen to make your own, let me tell you about this generous offer: Laura is offering free worldwide shipping in both her shops. Just type "free shipping TCET" in the message to seller.

Now, let me introduce you also to Jay, from loopy4ewe. Jay's crocheting fingers are always busy at work creating adorable hats for children and adults.
Jay loved Christmas as a child, and loves to see that same glow on her children's faces today.
As a kid my favorite thing was putting up the tree! I was always the one who got to put the Angel on the top - it was the last item to go on. As an adult and a Mom I love the stories that are told leading up to Christmas and the reenactments that we all do pretending we're Santa and what he does and the look on the kids' faces when they wake up Christmas morning is priceless!

Now a special treat from loopy4ewe:
