Christmas is my favorite holiday, and I look forward to decorating every year. Making old stuff fit into a new space can be challenging and I thought I had "a lot" of Christmas décor until it just didn't go very far in this house! But, I have managed to come up with a few festive vignettes in each … Continue reading The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.
