I took a couple of days off from holiday decorating and blogging in order to bake some cookies (great recipe from Bake at 350) and hang with my family watching Buddy the Elf and other classic holiday movies. But there is so much goodness in blogland, I wanted to make sure you knew about a few of the inspiring things I’ve found around the web and on the pages of Tumblr!
Creative Home Project:
Painting Stencils on Burlap Curtains! @ Tracey Interiors Blog

Enjoying the Holidays:
The Art of Making Snowflakes @ Here’s looking at me kid
Christmas Wassail without Booze @ Mosaic of Grace

Progressive Dinner and Luminaries @ Reluctant Entertainer
Festive Napkin Rings @ The Lettered Cottage
And a couple of recent parties…
Holiday House Tours @ Hooked on Houses (I think she has a new one coming up this week too, which is great because regular smaller parties mean more traffic for the linkers!)
Christmas Front Porch Party @ The Stories of A to Z
And coming up this Monday is Nester’s Christmas Tour of Homes!
Last but not least, I did a guest post over at Tip Junkie featuring a few of my recent simple no-stress holiday decorating projects. I’ve had such a great time making things that were easy, affordable and enjoyable! I have another little project still to show you in the coming days, plus my Christmas mantel photos, finally!
