Joyeux Noël ~ Merry Christmas

Today is a fresh new day.. and my kitchen is filled with
the fragrance of
Gingerbread Waffles
{ a girl’s got to keep up her strength }

I promise you’ll love them as much as we do!

While my kids clean the house, After I clean my house, I can get down to decorating our table for Christmas Dinner..

I saw the prettiest little napkin rings at West Elm and they inspired me to invent my own.

Crafts for me have to be simple, fast, and flexible..
and, of course, pretty.

This one is all of these.

Here it are step-by-step instructions, but you really just have to
tie colorful ribbon around a napkin ring and glue or pin something to embellish.

I received this gift from a dear friend, oh, about three years ago…

So, every Christmas, I fill the three pots with fresh soil, replant 3 paper white bulbs in each pot,and cover over with fresh moss..
