A Day in Los Angeles

When my family went to California recently, our main focus was visiting Disneyland for the first time and enjoying the parks. We did take one day to drive around Los Angeles and see some interesting sights. I'm going to share a few of the places we went for the day.

Winter Home Decor Shopping Guide Items for Kitchen Living and Outdoor

This week we had a bit of snow and I loved sitting inside and watching the snowflakes falling. That prompted me to take down my fall wreath and put up my Christmas wreath. Once I did that, I decided to work on a few winter projects. I was working on a snowflake decor piece and realized that I didn't have very many decorations for winter. So I started looking online for some things that would be good through winter.

I was able to find so many great pieces that I just had to share them with you! I have decor for living areas, kitchen and dining, and also for outdoors. I hope some of these items are just what you are looking for.
