no. 1 These beautifully frost covered evergreen needles make me really wish for some colder weather. A series of similarly stunning photos at Age Old Tree by Ann Marie. no. 2 I was taken by this photo of men’s socks. It’s dapper and sweet all at once. For a sweet stocking stuffer for your honey, try Happy Feet. no. 3 Odessa May Society’s fabulous gift wrap ideas are perfect for you last minute shoppers, or great for birthdays all year long. no. 4 Mini gingerbread houses from Not Martha perch on the rim of your mug. If you’re a baker, your friends and family will be amazed by this. no. 5 I laughed at this print especially after reading this Christmas Memory from Jordan of Shiny Paper Blog.
We are just two short days away from Christmas and I was so lucky to get today off work as a last minute gift from my boss! With so much to do, I’m still going to savor each moment and maybe even take a moment just to stare at the Christmas tree with a cup of hot chocolate.
We are also hosting both sides of our family at our house tomorrow and I’m preparing heavy hors d oeuvres and cocktails to counteract all of the Christmas cookies. I might also try this cute set up from Camille Styles. Today I’ll be preparing for the family to be here, buying some last minute stocking stuffers and getting my hair cut (it’s been months).
On another note, I am so so blessed and grateful that we all get to engage together through this blog and that I’ve met so many amazing new blog friends this year. I have been blown away by all of the comments, support, and sweet words coming from you all. I’ve been posting everyday for the last eight months, and this week I’ll be taking a small Christmas break! I’ll be back next friday for some more faves, and to help you ring in the new year!
Have a FESTIVE Friday and a VERY MERRY Christmas weekend!
