Thank you for the kindest thoughts that you all shared yesterday about our exciting news! You ALL are the best:)  Now to today's post... Have you seen me create a lot of printables?

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and stuffed your tummies full of turkey and mashed potatoes (with butter of course) - my personal favorite.  We traveled and enjoyed the Holiday very much, but the only bummer about not hosting was the lack of leftovers.  Anyway, let's get on to something fun... I'm super excited for today because I have so much to share with you!  I've been busy preparing for the Christmas season (yes, already - I know for some it's early), but wanted to let Thanksgiving pass before bombarding you with all my Christmas inspiration.  Now that the Holiday … [Read more...]

I realized that lately I've been sharing alot of my own DIY creations (which I hope you've been enjoying) and less inspirational interior spaces by others.  With the internet, magazines, and books, I'm never at a loss for finding spaces that WOW me (and I hope you as well). With the Holidays approaching, the typical everyday decor is replaced with seasonal favorites, and once again my jaw has dropped at some of the interior rooms that fellow designers have created.  Let's take a look at some of my favorite spaces decorated for the Christmas. Where do I begin?  This interior fully … [Read more...]

Did you check out my newly decorated Christmas mantel?  If not, that's okay (but head over there now).  In that post you got a little sneak preview of the Christmas stockings that I recently made.  As a family of four, we've never had matching stockings.  The mister and I have the same (since we bought those together after getting married), but then came child #1 and he got a different style stocking, and after that child #2 came along and she has an even different style stocking.  Anyway, each year it's been a mish-mosh of different color and style stockings hung on the mantel, until … [Read more...]

Can you believe Thanksgiving is less than 3 weeks away?  How did it happen that it's already November.  It seems like yesterday it was mid-August and we were enjoying the summer sun.  Well we can't go back and have to keep on chugging forward.  And instead of planning and pulling together a Thanksgiving table at the last minute, it's a great idea to plan ahead for this season of gathering and giving.  I have my table centerpiece planned for Thanksgiving, but am still in search of a few other table setting ideas to pull it all together for a stylish gathering spot for our family.

This past weekend when I got my DIY groove back, I made a centerpiece for my dining table that literally took less than 5 minutes and cost nothing!  The pictures, staging, and post took longer than the actual project.  Thankfully I am SO pleased with the results and now my dining table is complete for the Fall season.  Here's a sneak peak of the final outcome, but let me take you through the steps so you can make one for your table! A few weeks ago, while going for an evening walk around the neighborhood, there were a pile of cut down trees on the side of the road ready for the next … [Read more...]
