Farmhouse Style Christmas Card and Photo Display made with salvaged wood - a 30 minute project. Get the tutorial at www.cupcakesandcrinoline.com

This past week I shared a post for a Farmhouse-Style Christmas Card and Photo Display.  I used an old shelf (free!), paint I had on hand, bells, twine and clothespins.  It couldn’t have been any easier to make.  If you’re looking for a pretty way to show off your cards and photos please check it out. It took less than 30 minutes to make so you still have some time left before the big day.

Three Words – Peanut Butter Balls ::  This was the first time I ever made these even though they were one of my favorite Christmas treats as a kid.  I made them with my middle son (isn’t kitchen time with the kids the best?) and they are so delicious.  This particular recipe also has Rice Krispies in it and reminds me of a Nestle Crunch Bar dipped in creamy sweet peanut butter….oh my, my! You can check out the recipe here.
