Take A Break!

Stop wrapping!
Stop shopping!
Stop baking!
Put your feet up for a few
minutes and relax with
some of the prettiness
of the SEASON!

Just LOOK at this room of KATHY'S !!!

And her mantel!!!
Right out of a magazine!

I have always thought that CAROLYN lived in heaven!
But now that it's a snowy wonderland...I'm sure
of it! Go check out her carriage ride and snow-covered
home tour!

ELYSE is busy making these
adorable little confections...
among other treats!

JUNE'S every post is picture
after picture of shimmery white
gorgeous Christmasyness!

Would I love to have a "yard" like this!!!

And KIM must have the market
cornered on cloches & apothecary jars!!! All
filled with every yuletide treat imaginable!

This is my favorite nook in her home...
always love to see how she updates it!

Hope you had a nice break!
You needed it...looking a tad
frazzled, you were!

Now back to work! ;}
Only a few days left!!!
