Do you love to decorate, dress well and cook? If so, you have come to the right place. Today I am joining my pals Mary Ann and Annie for our Sunday Fab Five.
AARP Budget-Friendly Destinations
I thought you might enjoy this list of budget-friendly destinations from the AARP. Bloomington Indiana from my home state made the list. Have you been there?
“Snow-covered rolling hills and ice-covered trees transform Bloomington into an urban winter wonderland, especially around downtown’s light-strung square and historic Monroe County Courthouse. Wander iconic Kirkwood Avenue, chock-full of shops, cafés, bars, restaurants and performance venues. Indiana University’s walkable 1,900-acre campus is nearby, too, and home to one of B-town’s hidden gems: the world’s largest collection of mechanical puzzles — more than 30,000 of them — tucked inside IU’s Lilly Library.”
Tammy Kinneman Designs
Tammy Kinneman contacted me and said she would be honored if she could send me a couple of pieces of her jewelry. She was so sweet I couldn’t refuse. She has beautiful things for really reasonable prices. You saw me wearing Tammy’s beautiful pear earrings here. I will share the pretty necklace she sent me soon.
FREDDIE’S POTATO ARTICHOKE LEEK SOUP
We love the community we have found here. Freddie and John came bounding over when we purchased the house, and the former owners were still renting and introduced themselves. We instantly became friends. They served this soup on Friday night and it was delicious. I am sorry my photo didn’t do it justice.
OUTFIT OF THE WEEK
I have been on the hunt for some nice cashmere sweaters. This Vince number is now on sale at 25% off. I get compliments on these faux leather jeans from Lysee everytime I wear them. Remember if you use my link and the code Cindy20 you get 20% off. They are also having their 12 days of deals where every day one item is 50% off. I am loving these Vivaia loafers. They are also 20% off. I love this reasonable crossbody from Nordstrom, and the leopard scarf (also on sale)

BALLARD DESIGNS HOW TO DECORATE
I am not sure if I have mentioned Ballard Designs How to Decorate Podcast. They are just wonderful. If you need something to listen to while driving, walking or working out, I highly recommend them. I recently caught up with several on a long walk.
Well that’s it from my desk. As always, thank you for sharing your Sunday with me and reading Do you Love to Decorate, Dress Well, and Cook. You can find all of my previous Sunday favorites here in case you want to catch up. I need to finish my Christmas shopping and wrap presents. How are you coming along with your Christmas shopping? Let’s pop over and see what Mary Ann and Annie are up to for more Sunday fun.
