Please Join Me for The Scoop #150

Christmas is almost here and I am finally ready...just in the nick of time, too! Sooo...on the blog I have been sharing a few last bits of holiday d├ęcor as we wind down this final week of holiday preparations!

For those of us who have limited space, I created a Christmas hot cocoa station that serves two purposes since it's also a centerpiece! What a fun way to serve my holiday guests!

And if you need a few last-minute ideas, how about my easy and inexpensive Dollar Tree snow village...a lot of impact for very little money! You will find complete instructions here.

I would like to wish a Merry Christmas, a happy and joyful Hanukkah and a wonderful holiday season to  all of my wonderful readers! Enjoy this special time with your family!

And now...I can't wait to see what you have to share, so...

Our host this week is Anita from Cedar Hill Farmhouse


Hello everyone! Here I am with my daughter and Ernie Manouse on the set of Manor of Speaking. We had the pleasure of attending a screening of the premiere episode of Downton Abbey Season 5, then attending a taping of Manor of Speaking last week. Manor of Speaking is a local talk show that covers the current episode of Downton Abbey. Since Manor of Speaking won an Emmy for best talk show, it is now in syndication so you might get to see it in your area after Downton. We had so much fun, and now I think my daughter is a Downton convert.

If you looking for some very simple, yet elegant ideas for your Christmas table, you can find some very easy ones here.


Do you love grain sacks? Then I think you'll love these Christmas decorating ideas!


Now on to the fabulous ideas from last week's party!
