Cozy Dreams

{photo found here}

Is anyone else SO excited for the holidays? November is my favorite time of year {check back this weekend to see one of the reasons why}! I completely adore the holiday season - lots of delicious food, family time, fires in the fireplace, gingerbread houses, pretty lights and merry decorations!

I have already been hard at work on my wishlist and have even begun to pull out the holiday music classics {my personal favorites are Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald}. Something about the ever-changing leaves and cozy sweaters is so calming and puts me in the best mood!

But... I need your help. I need tips for making my small nest festive this year - I love homemade goodies but don't want to overdo it! What are your tricks? I have some things in mind but figured you creative souls would have some fresh ideas and perspective! Please, do share!

Sweet garland.
