Time to shake things up around here.
I have had lots of gingerbread recipes and now it is time to switch gears to peppermint.
I can't tell you how excited I am about this peppermint recipe.
Be prepared to drool!

I don’t know about you but I love a hot, steamy mug of hot chocolate almost more than anything. Whether you top your hot chocolate with marshmallows, whip cream, sprinkles, crushed candy canes, a dusting of cocoa powder or even a drizzle of caramel – you simply can’t go wrong with hot chocolate.

Have you guys decorated for Christmas yet? I’m mostly done. I admit that my decorating is always a work in progress. I shop up until the last minute looking at Christmas décor and getting new display ideas. I’m not the type person to buy a ton of new decorations every Christmas season but I can’t resist buying a few new things. .I like incorporating the new items with my vintage treasures.

What is SEO? I feel like I’m not getting views because I don’t understand how to do it (and also because I suck at writing regularly)

Hi everyone.  Today I am going to share a really simple but very pretty little project. A DIY multipurpose gift wrap that can be reused after the gift is opened.  I love being able to stretch my dollars with projects like this. 

Rustic Woodsy Christmas Mantle
Sweet Parrish Place

Hi all!  Today I am going to share the second part of my Christmas tour with you today, my Christmas mantle!  I really love my mantle, and you can read all about how it has evolved since we moved in here.  I have to admit, I had a hard time decorating my mantle for Christmas this year.  I think I decorated it and then took it all down a few times before I finally got it to look the way it does now.

I don't know about you, but I get a little sad when the leaves on the trees start to change color, when the stores start to bring out their fall decor (or even Christmas), and when the kids go back to school...

I love ‘fancy’ (aka expensive) makeup remover. The more I spend, the more I seem to like it. And as much as I’m down for cheap DIY alternatives, never did I think I would make my own makeup remover. I assumed anything I make would either be way too greasy causing my face to break out or not work at all causing me to obsessively rub my eyes. Well, the last two years have proved me wrong, as I’ve been using & loving my own makeup remover daily … and well saved a lot of money.

When you’re headed out to this year’s cookie exchange, putting your cookie’s best foot forward with some style will make them the hit of the swap! Here are a few cookie exchange packaging ideas from our Cookies & Cappucino cookie exchange party. They’re all fairly simple to do, keeping in mind that time is often short during the holidays!

You don’t want to miss out on this amazing (and easy!) recipe for Pralines & Cream Fudge!  I’m also showing you how to package them up for delicious Christmas gifts in Rubbermaid TakeAlongs with an easy ribbon bow and a free printable tag!

This Easy Breakfast Braid loaded with scrambled eggs, ham, peppers, onions, and lot of cheese makes for a super simple hot breakfast idea. Crescent braids are perfect for serving a crowd or a larger family.

Most of us know other homemakers who always seem to be cheerful, even when things are chaotic. Maybe they have 5 kids, a crazy dog (or three), and volunteer on 4 committees, but they are positive and energetic all the time. What is it these happy homemakers all have in common?

In an attempt to keep Owen away from our real Christmas tree, I decided to make him a felt Christmas tree.  So I spent the better part of last Saturday night putting 20 year old Chelsea to shame and knocking out a baller felt Christmas tree– complete with ornaments and presents.

Do you ever over-commit and then find yourself it a pickle for an elegant dessert?  While I love the holiday season and seeing everyone we love, there are days it can feel a bit overwhelming!
