Festive and Fun Ideas from the Hearth and Soul Hop

Hearth & Soul Hop

Welcome to another Hearth and Soul Hop, the recipe exchange for and about food that not only nourishes our bodies, but our souls!  You can find me sharing links to entries on my Pinterest Boards.

Next week, the Hearth and Soul Hop will not be open as the 25th is Christmas day. The week after that we will open a day early, on January 31 at 4:00 am EST.

This week I am highlighting fun and festive ideas that I discovered visiting last week’s contributors to the Hearth and Soul Hop:

    Thanks for featuring me! The edible fruit tree looks fabulous! I should do that for the kids for Christmas morning just to surprise them.

    Enjoy your holiday break!

  5. Awesome seasonal features! Thank you for hosting.
    I saw something recently (probably on Pinterest) that made me think of you–Death Star ice cube molds!
