Merry Christmas everyone!  Hope you are all enjoying the day with friends and family!  My article today for FurnitureFashion.com is all festive and shows off some inspiration for how you can decorate your holiday mantel in all white to bring out a more modern, less cluttered look.  You can read the article and view more images at the link below:

Also, I'd like to thank everyone who helped comment on my "10 Tips for Expats Moving to Bavaria" article that I wrote for the Expatsblog.com contest.  I ended up winning gold for the category of Germany!  I didn't win any money this year, but there's always next year ;)

Now on to the Winner
