Home Sweet Home #96

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!  This week I showed off my Christmas mantel.

I showed off how I styled my dining room into a Farmhouse Christmas.

I also started to try some new things with my photography by starting a photo-a-day challenge.  My View Today starts the month long challenge and I am excited to say I have been shooting in manual later this week with some nice results!

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

Kristy at Shona Skye Creations created this pumpkin pie that was altered to fit her husband's diet.  It looked delicious and healthy!

Doreen at Hymns and Verses created this wonderful hot cocoa bar.

Sylvia at Sylvia's Simple Life made some homemade gifts that would be perfect for a lot of people on my list.

Yvonne at StoneGable showed off her Holiday Granola Bars.  Such a great treat to have handy for the holidays! 

Many great links every week!  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!

Thanks for hosting Sherry. And thank you for your prayers for my son. It was a four hour operation and we're still waiting to hear how he made out. The surgery was a lot more serious than he lead us to believe.
