Links for Your Weekend

Hello friends, and happy Friday! How is your December going? Ours is busy but festive so I can’t complain.

On Fridays, I often share interesting or entertaining links I’ve found around the web. Here’s what I saved to share with you this week.

Travel and Leisure has a list of the 25 best Christmas towns in the US. So many charming options on this list!

The real-life flat above the bookstore from the movie Notting Hill just sold. Here’s the real estate listing if you’d like a look.

I was tired of flimsy ornament hangers so I upgraded to these. They come in different colors (I went with gold) and they place the ornaments close to the branch, which I think makes for easier tree decorating.

It was fun to see Kansas City on Condé Nast Traveler’s list of the best places in the US to go in 2023. (Here is the Creating This Life Kansas City Guide with my favorite places to eat, shop and stay in my hometown.)

I’m starting to plan our Christmas table and I think I’ll do something very similar to last year, which I loved but was so easy. All of the greens down the center came from Trader Joe’s, the pinecones I had on hand, and I bought the brass taper candleholders off of Etsy (but here’s a good option on Amazon too). I also added some mercury glass votives because I can never get enough candlelight.

Finally, here are a couple of last-minute gift ideas if you’re still shopping:

The cutest suitcase for little kids.

A book for the classic style lover on our list (or for you!).

These bamboo utensils are gorgeous.

Have a great weekend!
