Happiness Is Homemade Party

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #355

Welcome one and all to our 4th December blog hop for Happiness Is Homemade! 

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas -  it was different for sure!  But remember folks: it's not about the stuff or the decorations, it's about being together and spending time.  

Soon we will be celebrating New Years Day and with it the promise of a new year.  I'm sure that most of us will be glad that this year is coming to an end, but I know I learned a lot this year and despite the difficulties, I actually enjoyed my time being at home. I am sending New Year wishes to you all. 

There were so many great posts last week, it was hard to pick the features!  After much debate, I was able to narrow it down to these 5 so GO CHECK THEM OUT!

This Week's Features

I have never met a doughnut I didn't like, therefore I think I need to try out this recipe.  This post for Sfinge - Moroccan Doughnuts  from the Moroc Mama looks absolutely amazing.  I'll be home for the next week and a half on Christmas vacation, so I think I'll have time to try these out!

Bottlebrushes for Christmas are so cute and inexpensive.  Maryjo's Bottlebrush Christmas Tablescape from Master "Pieces" of My Life turned out so pretty and I am totally inspired!  I think I'll be looking at Walmart after Christmas in the clearance aisle to see if I can stock up on some bottlebrush trees for next year!

Did someone say CHAMPS??!?!?!?!?!  My favorite fancy drink done five different ways by Carol of Bluesky at Home, I'm going to get a few bottles so I have enough for each recipe!  Click to try 5 Champagne Cocktails and get your bubbly on!

It's a well-known fact that I love eggnog.  But let's be real, even I can't always drink all of it.  So here's the PERFECT recipe to use when you have just a little left - Eggnog Scones from Cindy's On-Line Recipe Box.  Definitely baking these after Christmas!


I saw this post from the House On Silverado and screamed out loud - these looks so COOL and FUN to make!  I ended up purchasing some for my kids' Christmas stockings but I want to try and make them next.  If you need a recipe for Make Your Own Hot Cocoa Bombs, here you go!
