These sparkling sugar sprinkles are gluten free! It's always so hard to find fun cookie decorations that are gluten free. I also love this red striped bowl, festive cake stand and these glass food storage containers to gift cookies in.
Recipe Ideas for the Week
Stuff I Love
What I'm Reading - The latest issue of The Magnolia Journal just arrived and I couldn't wait to dive in. I don't get very many magazine any longer, but this one never disappoints.
What I'm Watching - I usually like to wait for all episodes of a show to be streaming so I can binge watch it, but we've been watching The Morning Show on Apple TV weekly. It's so good!
What I'm Loving - I continue to love my Instant Pot. I use it a lot in the winter for soups, roasts and beans. I have the 8 quart version so I can make large pots of soup and fit an entire large roast into it.
What I Want - My favorite waffle knit pajama bottoms are old and wearing out. I looked for new ones this week and found some really great deals on them! I love this dusty pink pair and this classic black pair.
Favorites From Around the Web
I was looking for taper candle holders online. I found these pretty marbles ones, this copper candelabra, and these wood and metal ones I like. I ordered these bees wax taper candles for the holidays.
I added these stoneware soup bowls to my Christmas wish list. They're so pretty!
I've been looking at these Christmas village cake pans. I think these would be so fun to decorate and set up a display at a holiday gathering dessert table. There's a larger version too that would be pretty as a center piece.
I was looking for gluten free advent calendars. There are some out there, but I don't love the candy ingredients. This bright advent calendar would be perfect to fill with my own gluten free candy.
Growing up it was popular to have light up plastic santa claus and snowman decorations. I'm sure in the 80's they were a fire hazard, but this new light up santa is so much cuter!
I found some fun clean beauty holiday sets this week at Target. These would be perfect for presents or stocking stuffer. Pacifica Mascara, Tarte Makeup Set, Burt's Bees Face Essentials, Mineral Fusion Lip Tint and Makeup Revolution Lip Glosses
