Blue Door

Good morning! I snapped this photo over the weekend when Jeff and I went out shopping for a certain little boy's Christmas gifts. I am drawn to understated holiday decorations like this simple wreath in the window.

It's a big week for those who celebrate Christmas. I take comfort that I am not alone in the madness of last minute preparations. My house is a shambles after being sick last week, but I am emerging from the fog and plan to conquer it.

I have most of the shopping done but all of the wrapping to go. If you are in a similar boat, you will love this post from Two Brunettes on how to wrap pretty and on a budget with items you probably already own. If you need a last minute handmade gift, join me in making these ridiculously adorable cakes and pies.
