Turn It Up Tuesday

Winter Wonderland Vignette with Turn it Up

Thanksgiving has come and gone and now we are well on our way to CHRISTMAS! But wait, I have a birthday in two weeks and even though I’m not a shopper, I have found some great products through Ozeri and SwimOutlet.com.

I’m so excited … but I know you’re here for one thing… Check out this week’s Turn it Up Tuesday!

Welcome to the 115th week of Turn It Up Tuesday! We thank you for joining us last week for our Thanksgiving edition, and every week, as we have some fun linking up and getting to know each other! We had quite an amazing week last week, and it’s because of all of you! We are so happy to have you all join us for another amazing week!
