This week was the annual “lighting of the town” where I live.

Home for the Holidays Giveaway
Begin with a Sunny Outlook is a website created for women that focuses on better outdoor living at home, including all the domestic interests women have in making their house and yard a home. Their topics cover ways for women to see their outdoors as part of their home, and ideas to help make their outdoors most enjoyable.
They’re giving away two coffee mugs and a 16-oz choice of Starbucks coffee to one lucky (US) commenter.

I’ll be back later this weekend to share some of the Handmade Holidays features! For now, enjoy the trees and the giveaway!
