?I am participating today over at The Pink Pagoda’s blue and white bash, if you love blue and white….you do not want to miss it!! 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.

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!

Good morning fabulous one!

Tina, I bet your Thanksgiving table was lush with laughter and love and that pie buffet and ice cream sounds HEAVENLY! I wish you and yours a wonderful Christmas ahead! And those Frenchies doing the bunny hop- these dogs have captured my heart since I’ve always been a labrador or fox terrier type of gal!

Then there’s the White Hart. OH MY G……..every room is a delight for white and splashes of color as such make for such a peaceful setting. Your wares again are brilliant, and I will send you an email for I have an inquiry to make about your chargers.

Sending you once again many thanks for the generous giveaway win I received. This book is A DELIGHT!

Much love, Anita

Sue J. on

What a wonderful post! Everything is gorgeous and the Expectation vs. Reality is hilarious! Love the monograms. So glad to see the White Hart Inn got a face lift. My son went to school nearby and we had lunch there several times…pre-renovations.
Have fun decorating today!
Thank you, Tina, for the joy and inspiration!

Love your post and happy that your Thanksgiving was relaxing.
You sure are a gal on the run, don’t know how you do it.
I look forward to all your posts. Be it pictures of your home (eye candy) your travel shots ( places I will not get to see) or crafts.
Love everyone.
Thanks Tina for them all

Happy Sunday!

Really enjoy these Sunday posts and find myself anticipating them with my morning latte.
The monogrammed goods are so cute! I will definitely be placing an order, love your urn with the greenery Tina, it is so elegant. You give me so many good ideas!
My daughter did an internship with Tory Burch for a year and learned so much plus got so many clothes for us both, a big plus to the job. Hope you have a nice relaxing Sunday.
PS Thank you for the tutorial on the urns, that is so helpful.

You always find the best things! Will have to check out LB Originals….great gifts! I was feeling the same about Tory, but am glad you mentioned these, as they are just great looking! Looks like I’m headed to Greenwich Ave! πŸ™‚

I’m about 1/4 of the way there with decorating, but I’ve got to kick it into high gear as we’re having folks over this Saturday! Kind of a built in incentive to GET IT DONE! πŸ™‚

Hi Tina! I’m so glad you had a lovely Thanksgiving – it sounds just perfect. Ours was a little crazy with four hours in the car, but getting to spend it with my Mom & Dad was something to truly be thankful for – and we finished the day with dessert at the homes of two sets of friends who we adore. (I am not going to say how many pieces of pie I consumed). So a good day.

Love seeing what’s on your mind. Sugar cones. LOVE. Need to get some for myself and also am now obsessed with the LB Originals. Oh, and I think we should have our next blogger meet up at The White Hart.

Happy December, hope you enjoy every magic moment! XOXO

Tina-
Thank you so much for showcasing my linens instagram! So much beautiful on here today. I love LBOrginals work. She is adorable. I laughed so hard I cried on the expectation/reality section. How true is that?
Have a lot more to go back and look at.
Teresa
