Two Features in Country Sampler's Christmas Decorating Magazine

November 12, 2016

I am so happy to be have two of my blog photos featured in the 2016 issue of Country Sampler's Christmas Decorating Magazine.

One of the features was my Scrabble Tile framed Christmas tree.  This project was easy and fun and if you would like to make one for yourself the project details are HERE.

My other magazine feature was my 2016 outdoor covered patio rustic display.  You can visit that post HERE.

I encourage you to purchase a copy of the magazine as their are hundreds of great Christmas decorating ideas contained in this issue!
