I have enjoyed your 12 days of Christmas. I don't want to see it end. :-)
Have a great Thanksgiving.

Tracy said...

How could anyone possibly just pick one favorite post of your 12 days of Christmas. They were all amazing!! So much fun!!

I can't believe your tree is up!! It looks fantastic and festive!! I think I'm a tad bit jealous!! ENJOY it!!

Bethany said...

I've loved this little series you did!
I think my favorite might be the table settings--but especially the candy cane hearts on the red plates.
xo,
Bethany
Also--I follow you :)

La said...

There's so much about this series I liked, but I think if I chose one item, it was the holiday pillowcases. I love the idea.

Happy Monday! La

Rachael said...

I follow your blog and I have enjoyed your 12 days of Christmas posts. I think I like the aprons, decorations, ok... well everything! :)

My favorite thing about Christmas is remembering and focusing on the true meaning of the season.

Heidi said...

I love the aprons, but the candy canes run a close second.

Garden of Egan said...

That first picture of the wreath is stunning! Wow!
All of your stuff gets me so excited for Christmas.

My favorite thing about Christmas is the smells.
I even like the Christmas commercials. They are usually whimsical.
We don't buy a bunch of stuff for Christmas so I don't get too stressed out.
But having the house nice and cozy is really my favorite.

Grandma said...

I loved all of them !

I follow your blog (stalk is more like it!) and I have loved every one of your 12 days of Christmas posts. I think my favorite would have to be the table settings.

Celestial Charms said...

I'm new to your blog, so I will go back and check on all your recent Christmas posts to see which is my favorite. In the meantime, love your angels posted today, great photos. My favorite part of Christmas is the jovial mood it puts everyone in!

Mommy of Three said...

I love following your page. You make the most beautiful things and inspire me in many crafts!! It is hard to tell you my favorite thing about Christmas as there are soo many things i love, from the wonderful cheery music to the beautiful festive lights but if i had to choose one it would be the family gatherings where we get to make fond memories with extended family we dont see everyday.

Sherry said...

I think your blog is just beautiful and your 12 day of Christmas so fun. I have not had the time to look at each one as closely as I would like so I am off to do some of that now. I am glad to be one of your followers, you provide inspiration.

Trish said...

I found your beautiful blog about a month ago, and have been reading daily since, I think my favourite posts are the Tea Towel apron and cushion, the Christmas Swiss Rolls and the candy canes, but the whole thing was great to read and get ideas, I have made some candy canes myself from pipe cleaners! As well as a few other Christmas decorations and am getting right into the Spirit already x

Playing Many Parts said...

I liked every post and think your site is the most fun blog in the whole world! Seriously. . your pictures and projects are just fantastic! I am most excited to try the ribbon covered candy canes, but some little Debbie rolls will follow soon after those. . .keep posting please, what a joy this site is!

The wreath at the top of this post has inspired a white christmas at my house (also in AZ). I can't wait.

annelisa said...

My sister just introduced me to your blog. I LOVE IT! Thanks for all the wonderful ideas! I will definitely be back often.

Prairie Patch said...

Oh, my! I don't know if I could pick a favorite out of all the 12 Days....I suppose if I really HAD to pick, I'd choose the Christmas Swiss Rolls, just because they're so simple to do, yet so creative and sure to bring a smile on anyone's face.

Thank you so much for this wonderful and beautiful blog!

OhhMy Gifts & Things said...

OhhMy! I love, love the Christmas Swiss Rolls! We don't have our tree up at home yet but at our store we are in full Christmas mode!

Pink Princess said...

I really enjoyed your posts about Christmas :)

What I love about the Christmas season:
The going to church on de eve before Christmas day. The Christmas day church service where my choir (I sing in it too) will perform during that service. Then I go home and have a nice hot chocolate with my kitty cat lol. I live alone, no family in my country ( my brother lives in Thailand, but will talk to him on Skype ♥)so will spend Christmas alone. But I will enjoy it anyways. Light the tree, read a book, watch a movie...those are the things I really like about the season :)

Vintage Sandy said...

I love your Sweet Treat Tree!! I do a much SMALLER version in my Kitchen. Last year I had 14 trees of various sizes and shapes and I already have 9 finished and I am still decorating. I like the house to be finished by Thanksgiving weekend because I usually hold 2 Open Houses along with a lot of other company. And I live in a small town house!!

Hugs,
Debbie

I just found your post! My friend wants me to make her this wreath that can be found in Better Homes and Gardens. Do you by any chance have this issue or know where I can find it online? I cannot figure out what all to use as the base of the wreath. Sprigs? Thanks so much!

Sunny said...

Just came across this post, I love the finial ornaments. Do you know where I could find the directions for them?
