Thanksgiving Project: Week 4

Since my family got into town on Wednesday, it has really felt like the holidays. We went to the Biltmore yesterday and reveled in the amazing Christmas decorations.

I got scolded for snapping a picture of the ceiling with my iPhone, but for my design loving readers I think you may appreciate this stealth snap. How amazing is this ceiling? I want backsplash like this asap

We've been baking some favorites (limoncello macaroons and pretzel turtles)...

and wrapping (yes, the Sound of Music is my favorite movie, thus brown paper packages tied up with string strike my fancy)...

Love your packages! I don't think that I knew you lived in Ashville.

We took a day trip to Ashville from Charlotte; which we're going to have to do more often- love it there!

I LOVE Biltmore. We have been in the Spring when all of the roses are blooming which is beautiful and also in the Fall when all of the mums are in bloom which is almost breathtaking but we have never been during the holidays.We have had so many people tell us how beautiful it is all decorated for Christmas and we were planning on going this year but were so busy filling orders that we were not able to get there. ( I am not complaining though) We plan on making sure we get there this coming year.
