Oh my gosh, this month has been a blur…lots of hot glue, glitter, & greenery flying around this place!! Everything is decorated but I have to admit I just walked by my tree in the kitchen and thought to myself “hmmm, maybe that will come down Sunday morn…”!!
As much as I love all the things about Christmas after it’s over I crave a clean cozy space to hibernate for the rest of the New England winter!!
There’s been so much going on and I think I’m surviving on coffee and Christmas cookies at this point!!
Speaking of cookies…I went to a super fun cookie exchange last weekend (can you believe I have never been to one before!!)!
But you have to see the cookies I made…I’m telling you MAKE THESE COOKIES!!!!
In other fun holiday festivities…look at this big gingerbread house party!! From little kids to kids that I’ve known since they were little kids (now in college) all sat down on a snowy night to build their masterpieces!!
It was the first snowstorm of the season!! I really didn’t think we were going to have a white Christmas but I guess we will be now!!
What I loved this week…
Have you wrapped your presents yet???.. Me either!! Here are some pretty ideas to make your packages look special from Kim at Shiplap and Shells
Are you having your friends over for New Year’s Eve?? Rachel puts together the prettiest ideas to try!
Carbs and cheese…need I say more!!!! These are the yummiest little appetizers!! I think I would eat the entire plate of these prosciutto appetizers that Stacy from Bricks N Blooms made…no really, I would!!
Early Christmas Present (to myself!)
I loved my Keurig for a quick-cuppa- coffee and I loved my Ninja for making pots of iced coffee!! This does both…and allowed me to streamline my coffee bar area…plus I love a good touchscreen!!
It’s marked down quite a bit right now on Walmart.
Last Week On The Blog
I wrapped up all my Christmas stuff on the blog…Merry Christmas to All and To All A Good Night!!! Now to enjoy everything that I have put together the past month!! Here’s what’s new…
Come see how I used the classic red, green, and white in my kitchen & dining area!! Of course, there’s a bit of vintage charm tossed in there too!!
I shared my living room Christmas tree and all the natural and neutral-toned touches I added this season. I really love winding down at the end of the day with the glow of lights on this pretty tree!
Did I really make 11 different ornaments...yes, yes I did…I didn’t realize it until I started putting them all together for this blog post!! No wonder I’m so tired!!
I put together super simple planters out on my front porch. I cut all the greens from my woods so they didn’t cost me a thing either!!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
thanks for following along with me this year!!
