Here’s a tip for using Pinterest:

Did you know you can rearrange your boards and place them in order alphabetically?

Why would you want to alphabetize your Pin boards?

- makes it easier to pin because boards are all alphabetized

- easier to use when you need a board for a project

Tradition with a Red and White Christmas Tree

For our family this Christmas is special….for a couple of reasons.

One - is that it’s the first Christmas in our new home!

My house - Setting for Four #house #exterior

We moved here 4 months ago and although our home is new and the mantel where our stockings hang is different this holiday…

our Red and White Christmas tree will be the same,

the same red and white ornaments, the same icicles, Santas and nutcrackers…
