Welcome back! It’s Day 10 of the 12 Days of Christmas.
Well folks, I have a little confession to make. Some of you may know this already, but I spent the last week in Atlanta, Georgia thanks to the wonderful folks at Ballard Designs and Buick. I just got back in the wee hours of Sunday morning after my car literally died in the final stretch. I also returned home to no Internet until 5 p.m. At this very moment I’m sitting in my dinning room next to my refrigerator, waiting for a work crew to replace my kitchen floor. While I am pee-my-pants excited about getting the new floor, I’m really regretting the timing. In an effort to “keep it real,” my point is that life is a bit messy right now. But to keep in the spirit of the 12 Days of Christmas, I decided to visit some projects of past Christmases. I know a number of you are new to IBC, so I’m hoping this will be new information to you.
Please pardon the photography. My skills have obviously improved a bit (as did my camera) since some of these photos were taken.
For those of you who have been with IBC for a while, thank you, and I hope you enjoy this little walk down memory lane with me!
A few years ago my gift shoppe had a peacock-inspired tree.
Yes, this is the same “loo-who”-inspired tree you saw in the shoppe this year.
I made the easiest fudge in the world.
Seriously, it only requires three ingredients and it is the creamiest fudge you will ever eat. Believe me.
You can take a look at my Christmas tree from years past.
As much as I still love this beauty, I’m so glad I mixed things up this year with my tree of a different color.
I obviously have an obsession with old glass Christmas balls as evident in this colorful centerpiece.
I also love my ribbon-embellished dining room wreath.
Sometimes the simplest things are the best.
These cookies are a must-try when you are in the final hours of your holiday prep.
No one will ever know you used store bought cookie dough. I promise I won’t tell. Find the recipe here.
So that’s it! A little trip through Christmases past. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. And thank you so much for bearing with me today as I attempt to catch my breath.
I will fill you in on my Atlanta adventure next week. Lots of exciting news to share! Stay tuned.
And remember, there is a giveaway every day!
