Saturday Sparks Link Party 43

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 43!
The links from the last party were a feast to the eyes and the celebration of Christmas was once again the continuing theme.
Now, onto the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 42.
Christmas Mantel 2013 from Vintage, Paint and more... - Cathy decided to simplify her Christmas decor this year and came up with this lovely mantel. I love the neutral and calming colors combined with the different textures.

O' Christmas Tree from Bohemian Junktion. Shannon shows us her "rustic glam neutral" Christmas Tree. It has a The combination of burlap, cotton and glitz turned out wonderful.
Christmas Cottage Kitchen from Salmagundi. Sally has decked out her Hoosier cabinet with a fabulous plaid filled country Christmas theme.

Christmas Mantel from Fort Ledbetter. Marie shares her Christmas mantel that she was able to create using most of last years decor. Easy on the pocketbook and it looks gorgeous to boot!
Holiday Foyer from The Life of a Craft Crazed Mom. Mellisa shows us her Foyer in all its Christmas glory. The vintage blue dresser anchors the other festive touches with an oh-so-pretty blue and white theme.
Free Printable Gift Tags from Carrie Elle. Continuing her '12 Days of Christmas Printables', Carrie created these cute gift tags that she says are "easy to cut out with no crazy edges". We always seem to run out of gift tags, so these will come in very handy.
My First Mesh Wreath from Bohemian Junktion. Shannon was a bit intimidated by some of the mesh wreaths her sister had made but got over her fears and created this beauty with some help from her sister.
Dark Chocolate Pistachio Fudge from Kleinworth & Co. - Gina is known for her decadent treats and this recipe sounds like another winner. She says it "melts in your mouth" - and I am sure it does.
Cranberry White Chocolate Cookies from My Sweet Mission. If you are like me, you have a handful of really great cookie recipes that you turn to over and over. Heather shares one of her favorites with this delicious Cranberry White Chocolate Cookie recipe. Definitely a must try...
Classic Coconut Macaroons from Yesterfood. Joy shares a classic recipe for Coconut Macaroons that she says is "sure to win your holiday heart".

Many thanks to everyone who sent their kind thoughts and prayers to us over our 'Charlie Boy'. At the moment, he seems no worse for the wear. He is holding his own and is his usual energy filled self  but his veterinarian's tell us it's only a matter of time. We are taking each day as a blessing and savoring the time we have left with him.

  3. I hope you had a very Blessed and Merry Christmas. I also hope you have a fantastic time ringing in 2014. Thank you so much for featuring my Christmas Tree and Joy Mesh Wreath. I'm so excited, and what a great way to end 2013. I have to say I'm sort of sad Christmas is ending because everyone had so many awesome decorations, crafts, and goodies to eat. Just not enough time to try everything. My pin board is loaded for next year. I know 2014 will bring lots of creativity.
