Country Living Christmas Books!!!

County Living has two fantasy books that will put you into the holiday spirit! 'Tis the season to be jolly, Fa, la, la, la, la! The first is Deck The Halls written by Katy McColl, former Executive Editor of O at Home and Country Living.
 What a cute idea for the chapters in this book, icons!!
Deck the Halls is filled with recipes, note cards, stickers, to/from's and tips on how decorate your home. 
 I love the sticker pages and punch out gift boxes. This book says, "Use ME!", it is not a pretty picture book to put on the self. Deck the Halls is a Santa's little helper book, filled with fantastic ideas you can't find online. If you are looking for holiday inspiration, maybe you need an extra spring in your step, pick up this book. It will stay by your side all winter season.
 As if that was not enough, here is the second Country Living Christmas Book called, The Farm Chicks Christmas by Serena Thompson. She has tons of great tips and tricks. Most of which are helpful if you are on a budget.
 Decorate you home using recycled items, vintage toys (ok, toys we played with;) or 
the large light bulbs. 
 Take extra care in wrapping your gifts. Make felt gift card holders or name tags.
 Use holiday candies in glass jars to give color to your home.
I LOVE this idea! Even though it is not really that cold here in the Carolinas. Keep a wire basket filled with mittens close to the door or fireplace. 
Best wishes!
