Just like with your hairstyle or wardrobe, decorating a Christmas tree can be an outward display of your style and taste. Whether you showcase special handmade ornaments from your children, go all out with a specific theme or color, or present an eclectic mix of carefully collected ornaments, you're making...

This is the story of a chair. It's not just any chair, it's a special chair. No, it won't fly us around the room, it won't grant us wishes, and it won't run errands or do chores for us, no matter how nicely we ask. But if it won't...

The List. Capital T, capital L. Sadly I'm not referring to what I want for Christmas, but instead the punch list of items we're looking to cross off before our home is featured on Alexandria's Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend Designer Tour of Homes. (If you're going to be in or around Alexandria,...
