Visiting Christmas Past



Hello friends. have you recovered from Thanksgiving's over indulgences?
I just finished a piece of pumpkin pie. True. :)


Today we are visiting a few posts from Christmases past here at Poofing the Pillows.

Let me just say, thank goodness for improved photography skills!
Looking back is an eye opener both as a reminder of wonderful times
and as a reminder of how far we've come taking pictures.


The time I hosted a tiny little Christmas party. 


Red Velvet Bundt Cake served at Christmas Bunko party. So delicious and beautiful plus it served a lot of people.





It's fun to look back at how things change and how they stay the same.
Counting my blessings this holiday season. 

Christmas in Texas blog hop starts December 4th.

Love the Coopers

The other day we talked about some Christmas theme books but now let's talk about a movie. 
 We saw Love the Coopers last weekend and we loved it!

Love the Coopers review at Poofing the Pillows

Any movie that has Diane Keaton in it is a must see for me. This movie also had John Goodman and several other great actors. Why did we love it? This movie reminds us that families are crazy, and mixed up, and somewhat 'dysfunctional' but it's all ok. There are hilarious parts in this movie and times that you'll pull out a tissue. I definitely recommend this one!

Our Christmas movie list includes Elf, 
Christmas Vacation, The Holiday,
and It's a Wonderful Life every single year.
How about yours?

By the way, my friend Eilis at My Heart Lives Here is having an amazing give away right now of a copy of French Accents by Anita @ Cedar Hill Farmhouse!! Go enter now! While you are there be sure to see her beautiful french country home tour. It will make you swoon.

Christmas in Texas Blog Hop at Poofing the Pillows, December 7-11, 2015

Good Morning Ladies!

 I am so excited to talk about this today. 
 December 7-11 we are having a Christmas in Texas Blog Hop that will include 20+ bloggers who live in the Great State of Texas.

When we started putting this together, I was overwhelmed to realize how many talented bloggers there are here. We will be sharing Christmas home tours, pretty little spots of decor, crafts, recipes, and even fashion!

This grew to be a large group rather quickly but I don't want to leave anyone out. If there are other Texans who would like to link up we can do that the following week.  
Email me at stacey@poofingthepillows and let me know. 

I would love you and send you hugs and kisses if you'd post this button on your sidebar.
Remember to mark your calendars for December 7-11, 2015, y'all. 

Email me at stacey@poofingthepillows.com to be included.

Christmas Reads Just for Fun

In every season I love a good book. 
Seems like we often see great summer reading lists but today I'm sharing a few fiction Christmas reads that look like fun. I know there's much to be done in the next few weeks but I'm definitely going to spend some time with a good book or two.  

Christmas fiction recommendations at Poofing the Pillows

In Christmas at Harrington's, the main character finds a red coat which lands her a job 
as Mrs. Santa Clause. The reviews are great and the story line sounds sweet. 


Christmas fiction recommendations at Poofing the Pillows

I adore Fannie Flagg and A Redbird Christmas has been around for several years. Have you read it?
Like her other books, it's a sweet story about the lives of small town people. I enjoyed this one a few years ago.

Mary Kay Andrews always gives us amazing southern stories too. With names like Weezie and BeBe and a setting like Savannah, GA this has to be a great book. I'll definitely be reading this one. 

What's on your night stand to read right now?

Lamp Love ♥

Depending on the time of year, different things become important to us. 

Lamp love at Poofing the Pillows

In the fall and winter I need light!  You too? I thought so.
This little lamp kept calling my name at the store and she had a shine but was a little
plain. She sits by the world's cutest chair so she couldn't be a dowdy lamp. 
Sorry cute lamp but it's true.

Buffalo checks and bright colors on an office chair.

Then we spotted the magnetic flower that just pops onto the shade and lamp love was born!
She's keeping me company at my desk now while I read your blogs.
We are happy together.

Lamp love at Poofing the Pillows.

What's making you happy today?
Be sure and tell me in the comments. :)
