I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas…

Dreaming of a White Christmas with cookies, cakes, drinks, crafts + decor.

Oh what I wouldn’t give for a White Christmas.

I’ve got to know…does it snow for Christmas where you live? Here in Tennessee, it is pretty hit or miss. One year it will be almost 70 degrees and sunny at Christmas, and the next, it might get a little chilly.

This year’s yuletide forecast? 50 degrees and partly cloudy.  ❄ ❅

I can’t remember the last time we had snow on the ground during Christmas. But that doesn’t stop me from dreaming about a White Christmas. We have reached out to some of our favorite food and DIY bloggers for their very best White Christmas ideas. Which one is your favorite?

How to Make Cranberry Rustic Christmas Decor in 5 Minutes

Not sure which one I like best! Cranberry Rustic Christmas Decor in less than 5 minutes.

Flea Market Finds (From Here to Montgomery Bell)

Flea Market Finds

We love to get out and just drive. Sometimes we have a destination in mind, other times we let our kids tell us where we are going. At each stop sign or traffic light, they get to pick “left”, “right”, or “straight”.  You never know where we are going to end up. Our eyes are always peeled for good yard sales and junktique stores. Flea market finds are always out there.

My husband sometimes speeds up a little when he sees one, but he usually gets overruled.

Amazing what you can find on a tank of gas and about $30 of flea market fun money.
