Christmas Home Tour 2011

December 15th, 2011

Hey all, as promised here are a few shots I took over the last couple of days of our home this holiday season.  I’m keeping it simple, my decor this year is mostly garland for scent, poinsettias scattered here and there, ornaments in various vessels, and always branches ~ simple touches since I want to spend most of the next week enjoying the twinkle lights, the baked goodies, the traditions, and our family.

I’m officially done with all the decorating, welcome to our home this Christmas season!

C is for Cookie

December 15th, 2011

Greetings all, hope you’re doing swell. Today was a productive one for me and finally I can say the halls are decked and the cookies are baked, at last.  As I was assembling and baking my favorite cookie bars (the same I make every year) I thought it would be nice to gather a little inspiration, because I could use a few new recipes endorsed by all of you, so how about an impromptu Cookie Link Party next week? 

I’ll show you mine if you show me yours, so if you’ve baked a delicious or famous cookie this year or anything sweet and holiday-ish, stop by next Tuesday the 20th to link up your treats!

And in honor of the event, enjoy this serenade by Mr. CM himself . . .

 

I snapped some pics of the house all gussied up for the season, I’ll share tomorrow.

Peace, over and out.
