Houzz Ideabook- 8 Inspiring Ingredients to Create a Come-Hither Kitchen has invited me to become a part of their terrific team, so each Thursday I'll be contributing an article to their wonderful website. Writing and design are my passions, and writing about design is my favorite thing to do, so I'm thrilled about this opportunity!

When deciding what my first Ideabook should be themed around, I thought about the room that tends to get more traffic this time of year than ever. The kitchen.

At Christmastime, there's nothing like an inspired atmosphere, a warm stove, a simmering pot and the sounds of the season while you bake and cook!

And by the way, I disagree with Phyllis Diller.
Going out to eat is not the best way to get rid of kitchen odors.

Happy Holidays from my Houzz to yours!


PS...Tomorrows post is about our $5.00 Christmas tree and a handful of other beautiful, budget-friendly Christmas craft ideas I had fun creating this year- so if haven't already decorated, can't stop decorating, or don't think you can afford to decorate this year- make sure you check out tomorrows post. It's all about stretchin' that Christmas cash!

Layla... You and Kevin certainly have had an exciting 2009. I am so looking forward to seeing what's to come in 2010! PS Your bathroom is looking A-Maz-Ing. My mom called me yesterday just to say... "Did you see TLC's bathroom tile backsplash!?!" We love following all of the great things you guys do. Keep it up!
