Holidays are right around the corner, honestly who would of thought! Most of us now are hurrying around trying to figure out what to purchase for the holidays and how to decorate for the holidays.

Posts of Christmas Past
For a mantel with extra flair, collect family holiday cards from previous years and clothespin them to a long, slim stick suspended between two vases. Put them in chronological order and, if you want, date the pins.
