Crickets... 

And it's not because of trying. My phone and computer aren't talking to each other (don't you just love Apple and their proprietary "I think you are stealing your photos" issues... So hopefully by next week I'll have a couple of Christmas posts for you. 

Here are this week's featured posts filled with
tons of holiday spirit...



Penny of Penny's Treasures shared her kitchen all snowy white with touches of red ~ really ethereal!


Debbie of Debbie-Dabble also shared her kitchen decorated for Christmas. Love her hot cocoa bar ~ especially since we just shared a hot cocoa bar last month as part of a Pinterest Challenge.
