A friend of mine is making gingerbread men this week. Her house is going to smell heavenly! Gingerbread is the true smell of Christmas – in my opinion. It got me thinking that I too should try to fit making gingerbread into my schedule.

Brrrrrrr….we got some snow on the ground last night and today, and the temperature has dropped dramatically!
All you want to do now is have a hot beverage on hand, at all times, and you want to dress in the most comfy layered outfits.
Which brings me to my Wish List Wednesday items!

Wish List Wednesday (Gold + White Edition)

Have you been noticing the new colour combo of gold and white lately? Are you hearting it as much as I am?
I was never a fan of gold until recently. I think you acquire a liking to it like dark chocolate after a certain age.
The combo is modern, elegant and classic, in my opinion.
If you are still not convinced you like the duo, here are some items that may change your mind.
