a rustic christmas & a pancake recipe

I like to keep Christmas simple.  Thankfully, my family doesn't indulge in the commercialism that suffocates all of us this time of year.  We aim for a laid-back time, hanging out together and enjoying seasonal treats.  Here are some images that reflect my ideal Christmas & a yummy pancake recipe...

I don't knit, but if I did, I'd make these cute little trees.  Click on the image to purchase the pattern.

Cranberry-Orange Pancakes with Cranberry-Maple Syrup

 In New England, cranberries and maple syrup are a must for the holidays.  I am definitely making these!

I love when we keep the holidays simple. These are some great decor inspirations. I really love the ornaments hanging from the chandelier. I just might do that this year! :)

I absolutely LOVE cranberries, and pancakes, but never thought to combine them. I'll definitely be making them soon. :)
