4 Things.

Hello and Merry Christmas week!
Let's hope your shopping is finished and your refrigerator is stocked and you are taking some time to relax this week! My best holiday shopping tip is: Create a wish list on amazon throughout the year, gathering ideas for your family and friends, then when it's time to do your shopping, you can finish it off in no time!

This would make a simple and easy addition to the cookie platter.  So pretty too!
A yummy appetizer, could even serve on New Year's Eve!
I'm buying one of these, to make tags out of anything!
And finally, if you don't happen to live in a winter wonderland like I do, wintery scenes to make at home. (I can just look out my window.)
Merry Christmas to you and yours!!

4 Things.

I took this picture about a week ago.  Pretty, no?  But also a cold, hard dose of reality.  It's been cold, really cold this past week.  It's been tough to take.  But I guess I better get used to it.  No signs of warming up any time soon!  I've been reading lots of books, watching Lifetime Holiday movies and drinking lots of hot tea.  It looks like the weather has been pretty miserable everywhere, so I'm not in it alone! Stay warm!

It's soup weather, all over the country. I made this delicious one for dinner tonight.  Highly recommend!
Easy holiday appetizers.
The perfect thing to do with all those bottle brush trees I keep buying.
Adorable free printable reindeer holiday card.  Perfect to tie on top of a present!
