Thursday Favorite Things

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things!

It is getting closer - Christmas that is! We are heading to our other house today to spend Christmas there with my daughter and in-laws. Our car is loaded down with food, presents and stuff for the dogs. I swear when we travel with the three dogs, it is like traveling with three kids.  They have so much stuff, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Many of my features come from you my commenters. Don't forget to leave your Linkup Number or Post Title so I can find you and you could become one of my featured commenters next week.

Thursday Favorite Things

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things!

I can't actually say winter has arrived in south Florida, but the temps have dipped down. Although I love warm temperatures, it is nice to have some cooler weather. It gives me an opportunity to wear some cozy sweaters and my boots. Now that is a good thing!

Many of my features come from you my commenters. Don't forget to leave your Linkup Number or Post Title so I can find you and you could become one of my featured commenters next week.

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

I am getting more in the winter mood today as it was 50 degrees overnight. Now don't laugh but that is quite cool for southern Florida. Our version of winter weather! 

I got a sweater out and some heeled boots. We don't get the chance often to wear that type of clothes so it was nice for a change. It will warm back up by the weekend so it is nice for a couple of days.


Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop holiday edition 2018
The holiday season has arrived and, along with it, your amazingly talented creations: delightful recipes, adorable crafts and fun filled ideas for the family! Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to share with us ♥ Last week, these are the inspiring posts that you visited the most:

Over The Moon Linky party

Happy Sunday and Welcome to Over The Moon Party!


Our annual Christmas party was great. We had around 45 people and had a lovely time. Great company, conversations and good food (even though I made it all myself lol!)

I must admit I really enjoy having this party. The house looked so nice and cozy with all of the holiday decorations and lights. Now I can enjoy the rest of the month. My shopping is done and just need to wrap a few more gifts. How is your decorating and shopping coming?

Hope your up coming week is awesome and I am so looking forward to seeing all of your posts.

Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade!

I am getting ready for our big party tonight. It has been a crazy week but all seems to come together. 
This is our Christmas kickoff and I love having everyone here that I don't get to see often. Get time catching up and enjoying the season. Hope your holiday season is off to a great start. 


Now a few words from this months hosstess:
Hello and welcome to our Holiday Happiness is Homemade Link Party 250. We finally finished decorating our house for Christmas ~ which takes about a week. Now we can really enjoy the pretty and festive decorations. Are you done decorating? Hope so; now you can take a little time to share your awesome holiday posts with us here.
With 4 Christmas trees, 10 holiday vignettes, 1 creche, 1 Dickens Village and assorted Christmas decor, our house really shines during the holidays. On Friday night, we had a few couples over for cocktails before going out to share a holiday dinner. Sweet Shark and I love sharing our home with friends during the holidays and this is an easy way to entertain. It's part of our way of sharing the Christmas spirit.
I love being hostess is December. In the second week of December, I have chosen 4 awesome holiday decorations and one yummy sounding beverage for this week's Happiness is Homemade Link Party 250 Holiday Edition ~ all chosen to enhance your seasonal enjoyment.
Have a wonderful week of holiday enjoyment.

Thank you all for sharing your DIY projects, crafts, home decor and recipes with us. It's like having your own personal shelter magazine every week.

Happiness is Homemade Link Party 250 Holiday Features


I love home decor. Having a pretty and welcoming entry anytime is a wonderful way to greet guests, especial during the holidays. Jenn at Clean and Scentsible created a warm and whimsical entry by combining different seasonal elements. She shares great tips on how to style a holiday entry.

Speaking of decorating packages, I think personalized gift wrapping is not just cute, but it adds an extras dose of hugs and kisses to any package. Michelle at The Craft Shoppe shared the most adorable collection of gift wrapping ideas. I know the presents under her tree will be especially appreciated.

You know I love DIY projects and this darling sled from Tiffany at TeeDiddlyDee would add great whimsy to any Christmas decor. She has a great video and directions so anyone could make this project.

 Who doesn't love the dollar section at Target? It's always my first (and sometimes last stop) when I shop there. Stephanie at Abbots at Home made a darling DIY centerpiece from Target dollar section ingredients. It's magical and whimsical and so easy.

   I love hot chocolate by the fireplace so I couldn't' resist this Frozen Hot Cocoa drink from Brandy at Gluesticks. I know that sounds like an oxymoron, but it looks and sounds delicious.
