Simple Homemade Gift

This morning I want to share this tasty little homemade gift idea found on Heather Bullard. The instructions seems easy peasy and the packaging is so stinkin cute!
Cinnamon Honey Butter

2 Sticks Softened Butter
1 Cup Powdered Sugar
1 Cup Honey
2 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
Using the whisk attachment in your mixer, blend all ingredients until it is smooth and has an even consistency. Occasionaly scrape down the sides of the mixer with a rubber spatula to ensure even mixing. Scoop all of it into a Ziploc bag and pipe it into the small quilted ball jars. Package with cute holiday embellishments and hand written tag for a personal feel.

  • My early Christmas present!

    Meet Ellie MaeMy husband found this poor little pup in the freezing cold last weekend. She had been hanging out around my brother-in-law's house and we think someone dumped her there :(
    I have been wanting a second dog forever and Matt always said no because our yellow lab is pretty aggressive with other dogs. He couldn't leave this poor puppy in the cold so he brought her home and the rest is history.....
    We decided to call her Ellie. Later that day we were watching the Beverly Hillbillies and the daughter's name is Ellie Mae......well as it turns out, the family on the movie is from Arkansas (and we live in AR), and the neighborhood where she was dumped in called Beverly Hills! It was a match made in heaven :) Lucky little Ellie is loving her new home.

    It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

    I am not going to do much decorating this year, as our rental is so small and we will be in Houston for Christmas, but I was able to help my mom with her lovely home over Thanksgiving! Here are some pictures that I snapped. I wish I would have taken more but she wasn't finished!Here is one of her trees. I love the red and blue ornaments. The vintage Santa is my mom's from her childhood.These bears are so sweet and look especially good with the tinsel treeThey are from our favorite shop which closed over the summer :(
    One of my favorite decorations....the "Time for Christmas" clocks draped on her beautiful floor mirror. I wish I had better photos, I will try to take more when I go back!
  • Winter White

    White has always been my favorite design color. It is so clean and crisp. It can look modern or nostalgic. These winter white images have me swooning.........

    simply seductive
