This stuff is amazing!

It will fill your house with all the Christmas smells.


Plus, bottle it up, and it makes for a perfect last minute neighbor gift!


Head on over to All Things Thrifty where we’re sharing our recipe.

And then come back here where we’re sharing one of our favorite Christmas treats.

Christmas Candied Pecans


Just fair warning, you wont be able to eat just one!  This recipe comes from our good friend Jen.

She shared them with us a few Christmases ago and I’ve been making them ever since.

Candied Cinnamon Pecans:

1 egg white

1-lb. nuts

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. water

1 c. sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

Combine egg white and water.  Beat until stiff.

 Add pecans, coating well.

Add sugar, salt and cinnamon, coating well.

 Place on cookie sheet and bake at 300 for 25 minutes (stirring after 15 minutes).

Store in an air-tight container.


 Put them in a cute little tin and you’ve got a perfectly addicting treat to share.

We hope you enjoy the scents and tastes of the season.

Merry Christmas to you all!

Transitioning your Thanksgiving table to Christmas

November 24, 2016

Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope your enjoying and counting your blessings today.

We are over at All Things Thrifty today sharing how to pull

together a very last minute Thanksgiving table scape by raiding nature for free supplies!

She’s full of them this time of year.

Head on over to see what we started with and how we put it together.


It’s simpler than it looks!

Then come back here and see how we take the same basics and transition them into Christmas with just a few minor changes.

Head on over!  You have to see the “before”, before you see the “after”


We’ll be here for you.


Simple changes?  Yes.  Totally different look?  Yes!

Red berries replaced the orange berries.

Pinecones replaced the pumpkins in the little pots.

And pomegranates for everyone!

Our kids eat these like candy!


The basics of the arrangement remained the same.  Just a few minor changes for a complete different look.  That’s working smarter, not harder!


The greenery in the light was replaced with evergreen boughs and the same rose hip berries added.

 Ribbons on the chair wreaths were simply replaced with festive red and white striped ribbon.




Christmas time is both magical and who are we kidding,


Simplify where you can while still keeping the fun holiday decor.

Not having to completely redo the decor for each season is one way to simplify.

Just a few simple changes will take your seasonal decor from one season to the next.
