Happy Friday! We have had a low key sort of week, working on some last minute Christmas shopping and planning, chugging away on school and looking forward to our Christmas break. I am excited to sharing some fun things I have come across on the internet this week, from 50 simple holiday decorating ideas, to an incredible roundup of cookies, to a sweet and simple holiday gift idea as well as my new laundry detergent. Here’s a link to all of the posts in this series.

There are so many beautifully simple decorating ideas in this roundup from Midwest Living. I especially love all the ideas for using what you already have like trimmings from bushes and trees.

Leave it to Half Baked Harvest to come up with a gorgeous cookie box. There are so many delicious and varied cookie recipes. I have my eye on the hot chocolate lace cookies.

Looking for an inexpensive yet thoughtful gift for a neighbor or friend this year? I think this is such a sweet and simple idea that requires no baking and minimal prep. Include a note, a sprig of pine or evergreen and you have a thoughtful gift ready to go.

Did you happen to see the new liquid detergent SPRAY that I have in my shop? I am really excited about this one and have been absolutely wowed by how effective it is.
