The Festive Abode: Holiday Time

The holidays are here, so with Thanksgiving under our belts (literally), its time to switch gears and start thinking about the glitz and glamour of holiday parties, the glitter and sparkle of snowflakes and icicles, the sweet and spicy treats and the giving and getting of gifts.

One of my favorite things about this time of year is decorating my apartment for the holidays, and I think that’s a good starting point to kick off the season. While everybody knows that the bling and the baubles aren’t completely what brings warmth to this season, you know that I love to set the scene!┬áSo, without further ado, here are some of my festive favs!
