Teacup Wreath

Friends, you all know I love me some coffee, but today we’re actually talking tea! Every year, our local Arts Center hosts a Festival of Wreaths where individuals and businesses create and display holiday wreaths for a silent auction. My friend Kat was asked to make a wreath for the Tea Bar where she works as well as for the local Tea Room, and she asked if I’d like to help. Here’s the wreath we created to represent Gypsy’s Tea Room.

I know many of us have a common love for jewelry and sparkly things! In case you’ve never heard of it, let me introduce you to a jewelry company called Chloe & Isabel. Their catalog features earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and rings in their catalog in all different styles. Some are glam, some are vintage, some are metalworking…something for everyone. And there are lots of pieces you can get for less than $50, which I love because you all know I’m a little *ahem* frugal.

5 Holiday Mishaps and How LightKeeper Pro Can Help!

As the holidays roll around, there’s a lot of excitement and anticipation and if we’re honest, a little bit of stress too. There are so many reasons to love this time of year, but there are also some things that can drive us just plain crazy. Like these…I’m betting you’ve experienced at least one of them.

mishaps

5. You have five presents left to wrap and your roll of tape goes empty.

4. You pull the Christmas ham out of the oven for your family dinner and realize it’s not done.

3. A child/cat/act of God knocks over your Christmas tree. {This actually happened to us once…it was in our pre-Fuzzy and pre-LC days; we think it was because the trunk wasn’t straight. The whole thing just did a face plant onto the floor.}

2. The gift you were so excited to give or receive either doesn’t fit, is broken, or isn’t the right thing.

1. A strand of lights goes out and you have to play hide and seek to find the faulty bulb.
