Home Sweet Home #98

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!   I have begun wrapping Presents.

I have also been baking and hanging the Stockings.  Pictured here are my family's favorite, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie, recipe here.

And, I couldn't help but play with my new tricks at making dreamy photography like in the post Candy Cane.

 Now, I would like to highlight some of the posts that caught my eye last week.

Bernideen's Tea Time Blog had tea with Royal Albert's Old Country Roses and angels!  Two of my favorite things.:)

 Cindy at Old Time Farmhouse shared her beautiful dining room decorated for Christmas.

JP at Sweet Inspirations showed off a chandelier and a tablescape that was so glamorous!  Just beautiful JP!

Laura at Decore to Adore showed off this festive vintage ornament wreath she made for Christmas!

Crystelle at Crystelle Boutique shared her favorite hot cocoa recipe for Christmas Eve.

Mary's Meanderings gave us a full house tour that was gorgeous!

The posts were fantastic you guys!   It was really hard to feature a few!  Thank you to everyone who joins me at Home Sweet Home!  It is wonderful to have you here and everyone have a very Merry Christmas!

Lovely holiday images! This is my first time participating. I found you through another blogger friend. What a coincidence, I had titled my post "Home Sweet Home" because I featured a gingerbread house. And then I found your meme! Serendipity :) Happy Holidays!
