A Twist On Your Traditional Holiday Spread

A Twist On Your Traditional Holiday Spread

When we think of the holidays, thoughts of Spiral Honey Ham, Creamy Mashed Potatoes, Stuffing, and Assorted Pies come to mind.

Create a Dazzling Christmas Tree

Create a Dazzling Christmas Tree

One of the many reasons I love the Christmas season is that I am inspired to transform our home into an enticingly warm retreat for the holidays. My favorite obsession is decorating the Christmas tree. This year I saved myself clean up time by first putting down a tarp to protect my carpet from being a field of glitter. I find glittery objects irresistible but I do not like cleaning up the fall out.  That’s why …
