Christmas Sweets

Here's just a collection of yummy looking Christmas treats in pretty packaging.
LOVE the way this caramel sauce is packaged!!  Aren't those jingle bells adorable!!?  And the velvet ribbon. I love it.  What a perfect little neighbor gift.
Fell in love with these little candycane cookies, too.  They look super cute and yummy!
Love these little chocolates, and the boxes are adorable!!  Again, I love that velvet ribbon.

Ornament Necklace

I just kind of love this idea.  I'd probably use different colors, but it sure is a cute and festive idea!  And, it would be so easy to make!  There are so many shatterproof ornaments out there these days, and it's really easy to find small ones, too.  Love it! Visit {Someday Crafts} for the info on this one.

Cozy Christmas

Sometime I think it would be fun to spend Christmas in a cozy little cabin somewhere.
Something about the simplicity of it really appeals to me.  Just sitting around sipping hot cider and enjoying the company of those you love sounds so nice.
Being able to walk outside and feel the snow falling in isolated silence.
To be able to actually use real pine bows and berries in your holiday decorating, complete with real candles, sounds wonderful.
I would love to be able to walk outside and find pine cones in the woods.
To see the snow falling and slowly covering everything in sight sounds so relaxing.
To go on long evening walks through snow covered woods sounds very romantic.
There's something so enticing about a homemade pie.
There's something so inviting about a real wood burning fire.
Something about homemade foods and drinks bring out the best in family time.
Have a tender, cozy Christmas.

Pretty Presents

I'm one of those nuts who actually loves wrapping presents, so every time I see a pretty present I pause to admire it. :)
 
Even just presents as simple as "brown paper packages tied up with bows" looks so adorable!!  I also love these presents wrapped with sheet music.  Lovely!
Love it when they all sorta match...am I starting to sound OCD??  It's amazing what a little bit of ribbon can do!  Wonders!!
So gorgeous!  Love the white and especially the snowflakes in this beautiful bow!!
How cute is this!?  Stamping their names on the paper instead of using stickers and such.  Looks adorable, plus it's a lot easier to read.
Or, you could do initial tags.  These are adorable as well.  Love them, and they could totally be reused.
How cute is this package!!  I love the twine!  I love the use of pine branches and pine cones!  I really love the plain wrapping paper.  Not a big fan of the printed stuff.
And more brown paper packages.  Love these!!  Ribbons really shine when the wrapping paper is plain.  Adorable.
Happy Wrapping!

White Christmas

I love red and green at Christmas, but these pictures takes my breath away.
White is just so gorgeous!
The simplicity is so elegant!
It makes Christmas look a lot more sophisticated.
Everything is so fancy!
It is a perfect depiction of the winter world outside.
A snowy white wintery display.
Oh so pretty!
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas!

Pinecone Kissing Ball

Love this!  It looks easy to make, too.  And you could just dust it lightly with paint to get that frosted look.  Love it.

Merry Christmas!

Pinecone Elves

Isn't this a cute craft idea to do with kids!? 
It looks pretty simple, too. 
Thank you, {Martha Stewart}!
And this one from {Woman'sDay} looks even easier!
Super fun.

Merry Christmas!

Peppermint Bark Cookies

I am a HUGE fan of peppermint bark...peppermint anything, really.  So, naturally these look divine!  I'll have to try them out sometime.  Visit {My Blessed Life} for instructions.

Merry Christmas!

Deck the Halls

Here are some fun ways to deck out your entire home for Christmas.
Love this pretty garland running up the stairs!
But I think I love the wreaths hanging from these stairs even more!  It's adorable!  I also love how they added a garland to a really remote area of the home - it almost looks like a back entry - but it deserves to look like Christmas, too, right?
Look close at the pictures above the bed.  There is mistletoe hanging from them!  Pictures above a bed are a really cute idea, and the mistletoe is adorable for Christmas time.
Love the garlands on the windows in this room, and the presents on the shelf.
My favorite evergreen is definitely a boxwood.  I LOVE them!  The leaves are just so much prettier than needles, in my opinion.  And this wreath hanging by the kitchen sink is perfect.  I want a wreath hanging in front of my sink!  The ornaments are adorable as well.  What a great idea!

Merry Christmas!
