Christmas Decorating Ideas on a Budget

  I wanted to add some subtle decor to my home for Christmas without breaking the bank, so I visited my local Michael’s  to pick up some Christmas floral picks and greenery to decorate inside and out. If you have a lantern in your home, add a few sprigs of evergreen with pinecones and berries to give it a holiday feel. You can make a light post more festive with a simple wreath and bow.   Wondering how to decorate your lighting?  I took a lightweight frosted evergreen vine and wrapped it around my chandelier to make it more festive.  You can also add some miniature or fairy lights. I wanted to give a little decoration to my mailbox, so I added a spray to the side. For my entertainment center, I added lighted artificial evergreen to make it feel more Christmasy. Last Christmas I created my own Christmas wreath by decorating a prelit wreath I received from King of Christmas. All of the embellishments were purchased from the dollar store.   Making your home feel more warm and cozy for the

Getting My Home Holiday Ready with Scott’s Liquid Gold

Disclosure: I received free product from Scott’s Liquid Gold. I have used Scott’s Liquid Gold products for over 20 years.  I first learned about it from my late mother in law who always use to give me cleaning tips when I was first married. She always told me  to use the best quality products and Scott’s Liquid Gold was what she recommended for all of my wood. I have always loved the results and shine I’ve gotten from Scott’s Liquid Gold.  It keeps my cabinets, Andersen windows and doors and furniture looking brand new, while nourishing the wood.   This past week while getting my home ready for the holidays, I made sure to polish all of my wood furniture, cabinets, windows and doors with Scott’s Liquid Gold. My furniture looked amazing and smelled so good after being polished.  My cabinet looked so good that I could see a reflection in them! This gave me a sense of pride and confidence. A new product to me, that I received from Scott’s , is the Multi Surface foaming cleaner.  This clea
