    I love them all! especially the moss and kraft paper gifts! Layla I saw you on the 700 club, I got all excited, I was like “I know her”, then I remembered I really don’t :)) But I know your blog and all your talents, you were wonderful on the show!! God bless all your endeavors!!!

    So pretty and simple as always! Love your snowflake curtain. I was going to make some out of book pages, but did not get around to it!

    Stuff like this gets the old creative juices flowing. How cool to come here get inspiration and see all these visually stunning photos and carry the ideas with us.. I love the wicker texture of your dinning chairs with the red velvet ribbon … and the white in the background.. The whole thing coming together with a nice graphic pop.. :)

    Oh my gosh these are awesome holiday crafts. I love how your advent calendar doubles as a garland and your dining room table ideas are so cute and easy to personalize. Awesome! Happy Holidays!

    I just had a thought about the cute mitten advent calendar. After Christmas you can donate the mittens to charity. No storing a decoration and some kids have warm hands!

    I cannot tell you what a pleasure it is to see red and green in your Christmas decor. All I seem to see these days is pink and blue. Absolutely gorgeous!

    I love the snowflake curtains, simply beautiful, love it! and how very cute and clever to just ‘write’ on the tablecloth for placecards.

    Layla – please share where you got those khaki-colored beautiful pillows with the white print. I love them!

    Did the snowflakes as a garland on our staircase last year instead of greenary. Curtain is a great idea too. LOVE the wicker chairs, Do you have a source for them.
