Check out the vintage ornaments on the mantle
I just love white this year. I'm a traditional red and green gal. However, I'm lovin' the white.
Got a colander? Just add snowflakes, and white candles for instant ambiance
I love stars and this is the perfect time of year to bring them out!

Have you checked out their Christmas special issue, the ideas are flowing from that book!
I saw a really neat idea when I was out in a Gooseberry Patch magazine, I think it's Book 11. I didn't purchase it, just not in the budget this time of year. You take things that you already have love that and make them into something cool! I found a jar in my pantry that was holding beans. The lid was plastic and broken already but the glass was still good. I bought frosted glass spray. My daughter cut out a snowflake, my hubby taped in up for me and then I sprayed it. After letting it dry I removed the inside tape of the snowflake and applied some elmer's glue and then some snow. I found some ribbon, mine wasn't quite long enough but I'll replace it later with something longer, they used red yarn and left a small bit of yarn dangling. Then you tuck in a green sprig, add a candle. Isn't it cute?? I may make more of them, I think they would look cute down the table or on a mantle. They used mason jars of various sizes and white candles inside. So if you have some jars laying around and a little ribbon it will cost you next to nothing!
Blessings to you!
