Happy Friday! My family are all coming back to town today, so I’m looking forward to seeing them for a few days for Christmas. They are coming home earlier this year and going home to spend Christmas at their houses, but we are glad they are coming so we can celebrate together. We are getting together with mom and dad tomorrow for lunch so that will be nice. Hope you all enjoy your weekends too!
Mark and I completed a fun project at our house that I’ll be sharing on Sunday, so stay tuned for that!
There’s always a lot of Christmas inspiration out there and this new Georgia friend, Home and Hallow is just beautiful. Love her feed and decor! And she has a beautiful blog too.
On her blog, Home and Hallow, she shares how she DIY framed those pretty intaglios from thriftstore frames and created these beautiful bookcase displays. Gorgeous room! Her home is so appealing to me. Go and give her a follow.
This one pot tortellini vegetable soup from Hungry Happens looks delicious! I’m definitely going to try this one.
This baked brie appetizer from Design Twins Jodie looks delicious too and perfect for a party. I just might make this before Christmas is over. She’s got the how to video on that link with all the ingredients.
Around the House
Christmas is getting closer and closer and you’ve probably finished most of your shopping, but I have some fun items in my Amazon shop to check out. They really have expanded the home decor lines over there and you can find so many beautiful home decor items. Many of these are on sale right now too. I would be thrilled with anything on this page (affiliate links below):
You can find all the categories in my Amazon shop here.
What We’re Watching
We’re watching all the Christmas movies this month, the faves that I’m sure you love too. That’s been fun. I did watch a cute movie awhile back, Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris. It’s set in the 50’s and is about a house keeper lady who goes to Paris to buy a couture dress from Dior. I really enjoyed it, but Mark didn’t watch it. Definitely a girlie movie. Looks like it’s only streaming on Peacock now.
Good morning. I just wanted to let you know that the pop up ads have gone crazy on this site. It makes it difficult to read a whole post. I don’t know if there is anything you can do on your end. I don’t have this problem on any other site. Anyway maybe you can check on that after the holidays? Merry Christmas to you and your family.
Thank you, Vicky, I’ll check on that.

I agree with the above note about popup ads. They are really annoying. It’s hard to find the text about any particular vignette. One has to search for them.

Rhoda, I’m not having the pop-up ads at all ! I’ve seen other complaints about them in your comments. Maybe that is something “they” need to address on their end. I use Apple and it’s safety features…no problems at all. Love your blog ! Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Thank you, Cindy, I don’t see them on my end either.
For the record this part of “they” also uses Apple and it’s “security features” – haha that’s a joke and a story for another day. I don’t get pop ups on any other site but lately have been bombarded on your site only. As a matter of fact it’s being a real challenge even getting this comment typed as they keep popping up. I love your blog also but it has become really hard to read.
There are alot of pop-ups! Not an Apple user.
Apple user, and tons of pop ups on this site, many more than other blog sites. If this a problem on the user side of things, I’d love to know the solution, because I love your site.
It would be great to read it more easily
HI, Marie, I’m not sure what the solution is. Are you on a phone or laptop? If you could send me a screenshot of what you are seeing, that would be helpful so I can discuss with my ad network. I’m not supposed to have popups that block any content. I know some of these can be very annoying, but they aren’t supposed to block for the most part and can be x’d out.
