The vibrant colors we’re seeing so much of today really catches my eye.  I want all of these Cinnamon Stick Trees tied up by The Heathered Nest hanging on my tree this year.

Buffalo Check is still hot this year and I think Happy Go Lucky did a beautiful job on her Buffalo Check Ornaments.  They have a cute little Rae Dunn vibe to them too.  Plus she gives you lots of ideas for changing them up with other words and phrases.
