Countdown to Christmas 2014 - Week 1

Ready or not, it's just 95 days left until Christmas. 

Julie and Blu has invited us again  this year to join Countdown to Christmas Link up. Week 1 is here. The rule is very easy. In fact, there is only  ONE RULE - You must promote all the items posted as soon as the posting closes. If you have a blog, please hop this blog and promote each item to one social network, preferably Pinterest or Wanelo where we can see the item. Twitter and Facebook are fine, they just do not show the item.

Seems daunting? I have participated last year, and believe me that this task is so rewarding. 

Here are the highlights based on the colors I chose for this week: golden, beige, blue, and black.
