A Smattering


I’m feeling a bit scattered this December….but that’s kind of par for the course, right? How could we be all that focused in such a great season?
So, here’s a smattering of things I’ve been loving lately….I hope that y’all love the songs and the links….Happy December 11th to you!

First, Otis Redding’s White Christmas is awesome.

Ella Fitzgerald does Jingle Bells:

Elvis with Winter Wonderland:

Project wise, I love this upholstery job that incorporated a beautiful piece of needlework done by the gal’s mother, featured on Design*Sponge.  What a great idea for any special piece of needlework!   I don’t have any chairs like the one she used, and I don’t really have a special piece of needlework in mind, but I now know that I’ll have my eyes peeled in the Goodwill for one of these “possibilities”. Yet another thing for the Goodwill list….

And, speaking of projects, I love the quilt on this bed. It is the guest room of Stephmodo’s house in France. My love affair with stripes is never-ending.


Finally, I have to re-recommend this recipe to y’all. It is Cranberry Bread from Shutterbean.  So very yummy!  I’ve already made it twice this year and I’ll probably be making it later again this week.  It is tart, not too sweet,  beautiful when sliced, and totally addictive.  Only note, the 1 tablespoon of coarse sugar is absolutely an essential!


Okay, I’m going to get moving around here.  Happy Tuesday, y’all!!
