It is chockfull of blue and white gorgeousness. Click here to visit! Hi everyone! I sure hope everyone has recovered from their food coma and had a joyous Thanksgiving. Ours was so nice, really relaxing, a great family day spent at home, much needed I might add.? Food was delish and dessert was heavenly good…..deep dish apple crumb pie, dark cherry pie and of course pecan pie (courtesy of Young’s Farm, they make the best pies), all topped with caramel vanilla ice cream! I made a declaration? to everyone that all diets had to be left at the door that day. Thanks to all who sent in their pictures for my TABLETOP LOVE contest…..got in so many fabulous pictures and cannot wait to share them with? you for the contest which starts on Tuesday.? Unfortunately I am full (even allowed for a few extra)? and can no longer accept pictures…but will have my HOLIDAY LOVE contest coming up, so definitely? keep those cameras handy (or phones)! Onto the next holiday, hard to believe Christmas is a mere three and a half weeks away! Crazy how its crept up. Sunday will hopefully? be a “chill” kind of a day, which is what I need? ahead of a busy busy week. As I do every Sunday, here are seven things that have caught my attention this week…… 1. INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST. I always enjoy sharing with you what has caught my eye on Instagram? and this week? was chock full with incredible inspiration, some worth saving and sharing. Here are some of my favorites….. 2. EXPECTATION VS.REALITY. Oh boy, is this ever on the mark! I can think of a few more I could easily add and have a feeling that I would have plenty in agreement:) 3. MONOGRAM GOODIES I AM OBSESSING OVER. Discovered these darling monogrammed goodies and just can’t get enough. LB Originals makes adorable gift tags,? stationary pads, labels and I love her aesthetic, Plus she turns them around really quickly and adorns them with such cute ribbons…form start to finish this was a total win…..adorable, affordable, quick turnaround and great presentation. I ordered a few as gift add ons to, who wouldn’t love to receive these! With the holidays upon us, wanted to share this wonderful resource! Click here to visit LB Originals. Used them for the first time for a gift i had to bring someone on Saturday night… And here are some other darling items I have my eye on both for myself and for gifts… 4. A FABULOUS RESTORED INN WITH A WONDERFUL STORY. I first read about White Hart Inn over at Sandy’s blog, You may be wandering. I was captivated by the story. Who hasn’t? dreamed of restoring and bring back to life some old inn that holds decades of memories? The unique twist in this story is that it was an entire community that brought it back, spearheaded by a neighbor.It is a wonderful story….that proves it really does take a village! And more than anything I think it was no accident that I saw it on Sandy’s blog…..I have always dreamed of doing something along this line myself. I love that they will continue on with the literary nights and it will be a place for the community to meet, amazing! Click here to read about it at CNN Traveler. 5. CREATING A PERFECT OUTDOOR CHRISTMAS URN.? I think this tutorial is great, it really simplifies the process and honestly I am convinced anyone can do it. This particular urn is a large urn but the how to can be applied to virtually any urn. It has definitely inspired me to get busy with my own urns, so will be working on my outdoor urns today, wish me luck:) 6. SUGAR CONES AND FRESH GREENS. Well my decorating has officially begun, albeit on a very small scale. My trunk normally looks like this for the entire month of December…. I was excited to score two big boxes of giant sugar cones, they are super decorative and just add so much to any vignette. I just made this urns with fresh greens and sugar cones for my front entrance, still tweaking but you get the idea…. 7. A FEW TORY BURCH GOODIES. I used to like Tory Burch a? lot then tired of all the logos but went in the other day and must say was pleasantly surprised by some of what I saw and found. These were a pieces that I fell in love with and I was able to come home with a few…..on sale, best part! So that my friends is what is on my radar, how about you? What has caught your eye lately? Today I will spend part of the day taking inventory of all my Christmas decor and starting (keyword) to decorate. It will be drawn out over the next two weeks but my goal is to be totally done by Dec.10th, wouldn’t that be nice! Thank you for stopping in and wishing you a wonderful and relaxing Sunday!
