Happy Saturday and Merry Christmas! If you celebrated, did it look different this year? We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with just our immediate family of five, but we had two great meals and lots of presents to open so I’m grateful.

As I often do on weekends, I’m sharing with you some things I’ve found interesting or entertaining from around the web. Here’s what I saved to share with you this week.

Erin at Elements of Style and her husband have bought a new (old) house in the Boston area and its such fun watching the redecorating and remodeling that’s taking place. She’s sharing lots of updates on her Instagram as well.

You have got to see this pub that a UK couple built in their backyard. It’s one of the most unique things I’ve ever seen.

We’ve all done the cream cheese with pepper jelly appetizer because that combination is the best, but this recipe puts it on crackers with shrimp. Perfect for New Year’s Eve.

The best books of 2020 lists are popping up everywhere. Here’s one by NPR and one by the New York Public Library librarians. Both let you filter by genre, which is helpful.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. As always, if this time of year is difficult for you for whatever reason, I hope it lands gently.
