Cute Glasses to Toast the New Year

 Happy New Years Eve!

I hope you all had a Wonderful Christmas.  We sure did.  I got some wonderful and thoughtful gifts and got to celebrate it with loved ones.  Actually we haven't stop celebrating, it's just been one big party around here.

So I saw this idea at Ikea and knew it would be perfect for toasting in the new year.
They had wrapped and tied scraps of fabric around the stems of their glasses. I thought it was clever so I gave it a go on my champagne flutes. Super easy!

Not only do they look cute, they will also help identify your glass. Perfect for a large party.

Wishing you all the Best for 2013!!!!!
Happy New Year!!

My Christmas Porch & A Wreath Makeover


Today I'm going to share pictures of my front porch with you.
This is the first year that I have really decorated it for Christmas, and I have to admit I love the warm welcoming it all brings.

 Here is the wreath I made for our front door.
I started off with a plain, faux green wreath. Then at first I added some faux branches with tiny pinecone into the wreath. I also added a couple pinecones and a crazy plaid rag bow.

I hung it up and then decided I didn't care for it too much.
Then I got the idea from Beth's article on FOLK magazine's website (HERE).  Beth shares her idea to add real greenery to a faux wreath.
So I cut off some branched off of my pine tree out back and added them to my wreath. 

 I came up with the idea to use an old leather belt to hang it from.

 I also added some of my real pine branches to a small faux Christmas tree we put out on our porch.

 I love the wildness of it.
I then brought out my Vintage Ski's (from HERE), a little red stool, a metal lantern and a pile of logs.


 I also scattered some faux snow around... However we did get some real snow!

It sure looks a lot like Christmas around here.
So I know these last couple of days have been devastating to everyone. My heart and prayers go out to all of those effected in this tragedy.
It's also been a good reminder to hold your loved ones close and dear and enjoy every minute you get to share with them.
