Friday Favs...A linen wreath and some hot chocolate

A clearance sale wreath with leaves made of linen at the home improvement store, Lowe's?
Yes, please!
I'm thinking this might stay put, with a simple change of the ribbon it's hanging from, 
even after the rest of the Christmas decorations are put away.
Here's something quick and easy I put together that will also stay put, at least through January.
My old wooden trug, filled with all the fixin's for hot chocolate and set out on the counter where it's handy, has been a big hit with the grandkids.

After Christmas, I'll put the Christmas cups away and replace them with something more neutral.
The instant packages of hot cocoa are handy for the grandkids and, of course, 
gotta have marshmallows!
The big jar of Nesquik is for yours truly...I like my hot chocolate the old fashioned way,
made with hot milk.  No instant stuff for me!

Now I must go address the last of the Christmas cards and finish up some baking!

It's almost Friday, friends!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
and a BLESSED weekend!

Still following,


  1. A hot chocolate caddy. Wow, such a yummy treat to be handy at all times. :)

  2. I love your new wreath! Lowes - who knew? I guess I'll pay more attention to their clearance things from now on. My cards are all address and our Christmas letter is f.i.n.a.l.l.y running through the printer. I've wanted to set up a hot chocolate and tea caddy of some sort but it hasn't happened yet. I'm thinking today - or tomorrow! Your trug is so cute that I'm wondering how you and I are going to thrift together when we see another one! I promise to be good!!

  3. Love having decor that can be left up after Christmas. I know you're having a great time with your grandkids!
    Merry Christmas, Mary Alice

  4. Your home looks so perfectly inviting!
