Thanks Carrie. . . I was so inspired I made a wreath of my own using Carrie’s recipe.

Pop over here if you’d like to make one too. . . and don’t forget to say ‘hi’ and thank Carrie.


Inspiration Friday was amazing last week. A huge thank you everyone who participated . . . there were so many fantastic creative projects from home decor, to gift giving and yummy recipes.

I’m loving all this creative sharing and wishing there was just a little more time before Christmas so I could try out more of these great ideas. I’ve also been thrilled to meet lots of new people and find exciting blogs that I may not have come across otherwise in this big place called ‘blogland’.

So now. . . how do I pick just a couple of favourites. . . it’s really hard again this week!

First off, a touch of shabby which is close to my heart

Andrea from The Cottage Market showed us her ‘shabbilicious’ (oh yes this is definitely my word for 2012) birdy ornaments

Another thing I’m drawn to living at the beach is anything with coastal chic and Miss Beachcomber ticks all the boxes with her alternative to a Christmas tree. . . an old ladder. How divine is this for coastal Christmas decor.


And finally, I’m definitely making Randee’s Strawberry Shortcake dessert sticks for a friends get together this week. . . mmmmmmm!
