Happy December sixth! With Thanksgiving being late this year, the countdown to Christmas is on. With only nineteen days to go, the clock is ticking fast.
Are you one of the lucky ones that is feeling relaxed and ready to enjoy all the season offers? If feeling stressed, you may find this post I wrote a few weeks ago, helpful. :-)
Before I share holiday style finds I found this week, I wanted to tell you about an exciting giveaway for all of you that love decorating, houses and HGTV.
Cabinets To Go is hosting a fun sweepstakes and you could win a trip to visit the HGTV Dream Home in Hilton Head, SC, next month!
The winner will receive a free night’s stay in Hilton Head as well as an invite to an exclusive cocktail hour and tour at the Dream Home.
I will be there along with many other home decorating bloggers. I would love to get to meet and hang out with you. CLICK HERE to enter the Dream Home Getaway.
My Holiday Style Finds…
Decking The Halls
My mom made these when decorating the house for Christmas – they smell sooo good.
She is the master at creating the prettiest window boxes, even in winter!
Good tips to keep in mind this time of year.
This painted ball jar vase idea is not new, but I love it. See more simple Christmas decorating ideas over at Love Grows Wild.
Hoping for a white Christmas? A feel good holiday story.
To make with the little kids in your life.
For a cozy night in while watching Christmas movies.
Fun Facts about how the movie Home Alone Was Made.
Finger food for a holiday party that looks delish.
These will be the hit of any holiday party.
Add some pomegranate seeds and you have a healthy Christmas salad.
A side dish for Christmas dinner. Any leftovers will taste delish mixed with eggs for breakfast the next morning.
I want to make these the next time I make hot chocolate. Soooo darn cute!
Holiday Party Ready
Saw this at the mall. Goes nicely with my silver hair. Some pink/red lipstick and silver earrings and I am ready for a festive evening out.
For everyone who has asked me about my silver bracelet…. for your Christmas wish list. This is a rare find, but act fast – there is only one.
Know Anyone that is Visually Impaired?
If you have been reading my blog for a long time, then you probably know that my husband, Ed writes a blog for those who are blind. I wanted to share what he wrote…
Just in time for the holidays, a gift giving guide for that favorite person who is blind or visually impaired. If you’re like me, it can be hard to find that perfect gift for a friend or loved one. Sometimes, it’s hard to find something even mildly creative. Some people have a shopping gene but that’s not me. If you have a friend who is blind or visually impaired, the task potentially gets even harder. Who better than The Blind Guide to provide a Gift Giving Guide?
Hoping you are feeling joyful and can enjoy a relaxed cozy weekend at home. If the national weather forecast is correct… many of you will be enjoying a weekend of snow. This is one thing I miss living in the south. Nothing like a snowstorm to make it feel like the holidays.
Snow or no snow, I hope you will be baking cookies, watching holiday movies, listening to holiday music, wrapping presents, or if it is snowing outside… making a snowman. Make it a weekend worth singing…. It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.
