Half a Dozen Last Minute Ideas



Time is a ticking and my previous "I have it all together attitude" has turned a wee bit to "Oh my, how am I going to get it all done?!"  Regardless of what I do or don't get done, I am enjoying the season and the preparations.  If you need some quick last minute ideas, I thought I'd share a few favorites from the past. 

A quick and easy banner to add a touch of plaid to your decor.
State art that you can create in under 30 minutes.
Toffee that has only 4 ingredients.
Quick sugar scrub that leaves your skin smooth as silk.
Raspberry Vinegar--beautiful to give and delicious on a salad.
Make a door knob coat hook for a favorite friend.

12 Days of Christmas Round-Up



Yeehaw, it's a round-up!  A round-up of the ideas I shared this year for the 12 Days of Christmas.  As I mentioned several times, I changed up all my decor this year getting rid of the all white Christmas an opting for what I call the spunky lodge look--naturals and wood with bright, fun colors! Here are the links to the individual projects.  Which was your favorite?

I was hoping I could make that title a little longer, but sorry, that is as long as it gets.  Today you are in for a special 12 Days of Christmas post because Day 9 not only shares lots of ideas for your front porch, but I am also participating in a Welcome Home Tour with other bloggers, so be sure to visit the other links at the bottom of the page.
