Countdown to Christmas at Thursday Favorite Things

Countdown to Christmas Crafts and decor

Merry Christmas and welcome to Thursday Favorite Things! I am so happy to be joining Katherine at Katherine’s Corner and a wonderful group of blogging friends as a co-hostess for this fantastic weekly link party for bloggers and blog readers too! If you are looking to grow your blog, make new friends, and be inspired each week, this is the place to be. *Bloggers: If you would like a chance to be featured, please leave me a comment with the number of your link up. We can’t wait to see what you have to share this week! (If you missed last week’s party you can find it here.???? To get the party started, let’s take a look at what I have been up to recently:


DIY porch post peppermint stick using striped ribbon

On Tuesday I shared my DIY Quick Salvaged Porch Post Peppermint Stick. Check out my post to see how easy it is to transform any type of post, spindle, or old piece of wood with a bit of paint and pretty Christmas ribbon.



You can see more of how I incorporated the peppermint stick in my dining room along with more holiday farmhouse and vintage-cottage decor in my recent Christmas Dining Room Tour.


I am happy to be joining our TFT founder and Host Ms. Katherine of Katherine’s Corner this week for a fun Christmas purse set “Holly Jolly Giveaway.” After partying today be sure to check out the post for details on how to enter to win. Good luck!



Now it’s time to check out some fabulous features from last week’s party!

    Thank you for hosting! This is what I featured the week of 12-9 to 12-13 on my blog. On Tuesday morning was my Sweetheart Fantasy Fudge. Wednesday was my traditional Buckeye Candy. And wrapping up the third week of Christmas baking are Dairy and Gluten Free Sugar Cookies. Enjoy!
