Want to have a group get together and make some of these? There are other things we can make as well. Let me know when and where and let’s have a "DIY and Wine" night!

I am so excited about this years holiday catalogueMy Dad loves steam trains. Our trips and holidays were often centered on steam engines. A trip to SteamTown Vermont, Horseshoe Curve in Pennsylvania, Agawa Canyon in Ontario, and many more both local and far.

The pick below is my brother David, my Dad, and myself.

I bet you are asking, "What has this to do with the holiday catalogue?"

This years holiday diffuser is a.... you guessed it. A TRAIN!
I am so buying that for myself. Bet you were thinking for my Dad. lol  I too love trains and when taking trips I make sure I incorporate trains as well. Like a trip to Arizona and to Verde Canyon Railway, riding a train from Dublin to Limerick in Ireland, and the most recent, a trip that had me in a train museum on Vancouver Island just before getting on a train heading through the Rocky Mountains. 

There are lots of great products other than the train diffuser. See the pages below and then click on "favorite holiday items" link in green after the pages.

Here is the link for you to pick your favorite holiday items.
