Saturday Sparks Link Party 95

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 95!
The links leading up to Christmas proved to be a beautiful reminder of how special the day is for so many of us. A common bond that ties us together. We all have our unique traditions, decor and foods but the true meaning of the day is the same for all of us.
Now, onto the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 94.
Tree in a Box at Shabby Chic and I.  Tanja shows us her tree in a box. Simple details made all the difference to bring this humble tree out of its shell.
Sweater Wreath DIY at The Evolution of Mom. Jen gives a thrift store sweater new life as a
Sweater Wreath'. This is a quick and easy craft - my favorite kind.
 Festive Cone Christmas Trees at Making it in the Mountains. Kristi shares how she made these oh-so-cute Christmas trees -  a rolled felt flower tree and a scarf tree. Love the pop of color against the gray stone fireplace - so pretty!
Burlap Christmas Gift Wrap at Love Create Celebrate. Lindi shares her creative idea to make these pretty Christmas wrappings from basic supplies such as brown paper and burlap.
Smoky Pecan Pimento Cheese at Yesterfood. Joy says that Pimento Cheese is a very popular Southern appetizer. In this post, she shares her recipe for a smoky version that was a big hit with the family.
Creamy Tomato Basil Soup with Popcorn Croutons at Hello Little Home. I love finding quick and easy recipes that are also delicious. Ginnie is sharing a recipe for a Tomato Soup that sounds like it fits the bill nicely. For a bit of a spin, she used seasoned popcorn in place of croutons - Yumm!
Skinny Cheesy Coconut Cauliflower at Simply Fresh Dinners. Robyn is sharing a savory side dish made with roasted cauliflower, fresh herbs and a spicy cheese sauce.
Rich Biscoff-spread Brownies with Shortbread Crust at Something Sweet. Winnie is sharing a recipe for a decadent treat - Rich Biscoff-spread Brownies with Shortbread Crust. Mmmm...
Peanut Butter Streusel Cookies at Swanky Recipes. Jessica is sharing a delicious recipe for Peanut Butter cookies with a peanut butter and cinnamon streusel topping. She says they are soft and chewy with a rich peanut butter taste.
Mini Chocolate Cheesecake with Raspberries at Upstate Ramblings. Anne is sharing a reduced calorie Chocolate Cheesecake and Chocolate Sauce recipe. She made them in a muffin tin to control the portion size and added a sweet raspberry to the tops.
And finally, a recap of my share from the party - 2014 Christmas Mantel. I wanted our Christmas decor to reflect a simpler time. I gathered together a few salvaged items and went to work to create our vintage inspired Christmas mantel.
