Tuesday’s Inspiration

I love both of these photos today! I am a sucker for any and all things pretty and I’m one of those people who enjoys wrapping presents! Just ask my daughter, we spent almost an hour at the craft store picking out just the right paper for my gifts this year!

Which makes me wonder, do you spend time making your presents look pretty or do you think, why bother they are just going to rip it off and throw it away anyways???

Monday’s Inspiration

This weekend we finished up decorating the inside of the house and Drew put the lights up outside. I’m glad Drew got the lights up yesterday because we woke up to a blanket of snow this morning!

This table was done by Eddie Ross! I love him! He can set a table like no one’s business!

So let me ask you do you decorate your table for Christmas?

Resource Friday

Today we’re shopping at Garnet Hill. And I’m sooo not talking about Garnet Hill because I’m hoping for lots of Christmas gifts from my hubby! (Hint…hint!) Me make a list and bookmark the catalog and happened to leave it in Drew’s office?? Never!!! These items aren’t on my Christmas list but I do want to show off some great things for the home.

The first is the gustav hand knotted wool rug that is $898.00. The colors are beautiful!

Second is the simple rustic bench at $598.00. The name speaks for itself because I love how simple the lines are.

I actually bought the 3rd item! It’s an owl pillow cover for $48.00. I know I said I wouldn’t buy anything else owl related but I didn’t have any owls for Christmas. Ok, except for some ornaments! I mean how cute are these pillows! I got the one in black!

Wait how did this photo get on here? I love everything thing in this photo and I want it all, I love the Orla Kiely wallet, the dress and yes I adore the coat!

Happy Friday and Happy Shopping!

Friday’s Inspiration

Thom Filicia is awesome! I love his style and I love this room. Love the chandelier and love how the ceiling is painting a color other then white.

Outdoor Christmas Decorating

I finished my part of the Christmas decorating today, on Saturday Drew will put up our lights and we’ll be officially done. I’m also hoping the rest of inside of the house will be done too.

The first photo are 2 wreaths made of plain live wreaths, grapevine wreaths and then Christmas ornaments that I attached.

Then is a basket I put on my table on my side patio. I just used garland and I got out my handy glue gun and glued red ornaments and placed it in the basket.

This is the finished side patio.

At the front of the house besides the swag on the door I put together an urn and dressed up my favorite owl (a gift from my daughter and Drew).

A close up of the urn. It turned out to be a pain, it kept falling over so I had to re do it and place bricks inside of it so it will stay in place. There is just a mixture of Christmas greenery, pinecones, ornaments, twigs and berries in it.

The finished front door.

Bring on the lights!

Thursday’s Inspiration

I have been searching for a nativity scene for years and they are either too cheesy or too expensive. I finally find one and I love it but..

go figure it’s sold out! Isn’t it only December 3rd? Oh well hopefully next year Pottery Barn will have it again! Of course I probably should still go to Pottery Barn this weekend just to make sure!
