I almost fell for those glitzy holiday decors again this past weekend.

The glittery pine cones and a full galore of jolly ol’ Santa Claus stood on the tables like shining baits dangling in my face. I fantasized about perfecting every corner of my house to look like a spread in the Martha Stewart magazine – warm, cozy, and COLOR-COORDINATED! Read On
