The 2012 Collection of Holiday Crafts and Decor

I love to welcome people to my home with a happy wreath. The Sparkle and Shine design for this year does just that.

Right as you walk in the front entry there is a plate of sweets to greet guests.

From there you can see the tree with a vintage inspired tree topper.

On a table nearby sits holiday treasure boxes filled with candy.

Today I am finishing up my baking and will share what goodies our family created and how they will be delivered later this week. I am also changing the Visions of Sugarplums table décor for a grand college graduation feast to be held tomorrow evening. Luckily my daughter’s soon to be alma mater, ASU, has colors of red and gold.

  1. Laura, you just have the greatest decorations. I don't know if it is because they are vintage or what but they are so unique.

    Love everything you have done.

    God Bless this Christmas season!

  7. Such fun to see all your pretties. What is now vintage is just my childhood :) Loved seeing that ribbon candy-just like my dear mom put in her milk-glass sleigh dish each Christmas. Wishing you a blessed Christmas. MarySue
