A Victorian Dickens Tea at The Lasker Inn

Every year a tea is hosted by Cheryl Adams Palmer and a few friends at the beautiful, historic antibellum home-turned Lasker Inn just a few blocks from the beach in Galveston, Texas.

Come along with me and share in the day's repast!

Christmas Wishes and Christmas Trees...

A warm fire blazing  and the glow of candlelight. The sparkling twinkle of white and colorful lights on the Christmas tree bright...

Memories of Christmases past and present mingle together in a merry reverie...

Share Your Style #187

Good evening and welcome to our 187th SYS link party! This week your party host is me, Barbara, from the blog 21 Rosemary Lane.

We are so thrilled you all dropped by again to party with us! Christmas is just around the corner and this is definitely the place to find some amazing inspiration. 

Before we get started, please make sure to pay a visit to all of your SYS team members!

Since I haven't posted an official Christmas tour for this year, I decided to let you all in on some of what I have been up to over the past couple weeks.

The front porch is themed with a red and black buffalo check.

The entry way is sporting more red and a classic plaid.

And in the living room I went with traditional red and white. A candy cane inspired ribbon I found at Michael's kicked off the entire look, so it went right on the tree! (And on the mirror!)

Fun right???

Gosh you just gotta love Christmas!!!

Well now it is on to...

There were so many fabulous links from last week that it was terribly difficult to choose just a few to highlight. So without further ado here were go...

First up is a gorgeous Christmas home tour from Kristy over at her beautiful blog Starfish Cottage.

Melissa from the blog Dancing Dog Cabin shared her rustic and beautifully done Christmas at the Cabin home tour. 

Clean & Scentsible blogger Jen linked up her tutorial on how to make this adorable Hot Chocolate Gift Ornament.

Raquel from her corner of blogland known as Organized Island, shared an Easy Faux Eggnog recipe. It's a no cook recipe plus it is non-alcoholic, so the kiddies can join in the fun too!

And finally from Taryn Whiteaker, a Free Geometric Christmas Printable.

And that's a wrap! Congratulations to all of this week's featured bloggers. If you have been featured please make sure to grab our cute feature button to proudly display on your blog.

Share Your Style #186

Welcome to week #186 of Share Your Style! This week, Meredith from Southbound Blog is your host.

Hi everyone! I' so excited to be hosting this week!  The Christmas season is one of my favourite times of the year, and since it's the first week of December.. no one can tell me anymore that it's too early to start kicking off the season!  Truthfully, it's never too early - and my decor starts going up early November :)
Before we get started, I want to encourage you to pay these talented bloggers a visit: 

I'm sure I can speak for all of us when I say we would love for you to follow us on our blogs and social media. It's a great way to keep up with the latest and get to know us.


To get started with the holiday theme I'm going with this week, here's a recent project I shared of a super simple, DIY Glitter Believe sign that was made with NO POWER TOOLS!

You can view the full tutorial here, along with 5 other Budget Holiday decor projects!

 Thank you to everyone who links up with us each week - I absolutely love getting to sit down with a cup of coffee and look through all of the amazing projects that are shared with us. And now, onto my favourite posts from last week!

I absolutely love this Christmas Fireplace display from Dining Delight!  I almost went with a red buffalo check theme for my decor this year, but ended up going the complete opposite direction with white + rose gold, so I'm obsessed with how this one turned out!  I think this will be my theme for next year.
How adorable is this Driftwood Christmas Tree from Five Minutes for Mom? I love adding natural elements into decor and can't get enough of the coastal look! It's a bonus that this is a SUPER SIMPLE craft to make!

I find that one of the easiest gifts to buy or make is a selection of hot chocolate!  Not everyone likes tea or coffee, but I don't think I've ever met anyone who could turn down a nice cup of hot chocolate! I really want to make some of these Mason Jar Hot Chocolate sets for gift exchanges!  Thank you to Walking on Sunshine for sharing.

How cute are these Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Reindeer?! They look so adorable AND delicious!  I think they'd also be delicious when made with peanut butter balls for the heads, if you're not a huge fan of marshmallows. Thank you Suburban Simplicity for sharing!

I sense a bit of a food theme (on top of the Christmas theme!) this week - but these boozy holiday truffles from Play Dates to Parties sound delicious.  You know how great truffles are to begin with.. and boozy ones?? Sign me up!

Congratulations to our featured bloggers, and thank you again for linking up with us! Please be sure and grab our Share Your Style button and share it on your blog.
