Happy Sunday everyone! Whew, it has been a crazy week full of Christmas pageants, parades, and performances, and I am really looking forward to a day of just kicking back at home with my family. Maybe I’ll even get a chance to do some baking & try out some of these amazing recipes you’ve all been sharing! As always,  I was blown away by all your posts this week! It is so hard to pick favorites, but here are just a few of the posts I loved:

I have actually tried this Old Fashioned Homemade Fudge from Life in Grace on multiple occasions, so I can say with certainty that it really is the best fudge on the planet. And I don’t even like fudge.

This Classic Pecan Pie from Night Owl Corner looks absolutely delicious! My favorite!

And while are are on the subject of old-fashioned recipes, how delicious do these Old Fashioned Caramels from The Pin Junkie sound? I love the individual wrappers too!

Next these Sparkling Cranberries from Kleinworth & Co are almost too beautiful to eat!

I loved this simple and sweet Pine Cone Front Door Decor from Life a Little Sweeter. I bet the scented pine cones make her house smell delicious!

Next is a great tutorial for making Paperback Book Christmas Trees from An Extraordinary Day. These are a great last minute Christmas craft!

Isn’t this DIY Canvas Art from This Silly Girl’s Life pretty? Can you believe she did it with a Sharpie Marker? Smart!

Another fun Sharpie project! These Mustache Mugs from One Little Project are just adorable and would be such a great last minute gift with a bag of coffee.

Stockings are so much fun to fill up and these 50 Stocking Stuffer Ideas from Creative Savings Blog are great – lots of ideas for every person in your family.

I love the idea of sending the girls on a Christmas Scavenger Hunt. Stuffed Suitcase shares the tradition and a free printable too.

    Okay…first you tempted me to make marshmallows (on the to-do list for this week) and now you’re tempting me to make fudge and a pecan pie. I think I need a napkin….I’m drooling as I tap in these words. LOL!

    Thanks Ruth for featuring my Paperback Book Christmas Trees. You made my day for sure!
    They really made great gifts….everyone raved that got one last year….and they’re nearly free!!

    Wishing you JOY and peace as you countdown to the birth of our Savior. [hugs]
