Friday Favorites


My favorite things today are my Christmas mantle and the JOY framed letters I made. I just love when I do a project and it turns out even cuter than I'd hoped! I'm really happy with it and everything looks better now that I've added lights to the greenery. I can't say I'm totally finished with it, but I wanted to go ahead and show what I had done. I am now working on decorating my kitchen tree. This cold weather we are having here is really putting me in the Christmas mood! And NO, I haven't forgotten about Thanksgiving. I am looking forward to some delicious food and visiting with family on Thursday. Hope y'all have a great weekend!
