Hi there,? I missed my Seven on Sunday last week (birthday celebrations) so here I am. Had a fabulous party last night but am exhausted and may just have to stay in my pjs all day doing a whole lot of nothing! Everything turned out so beautiful and delicious (so bummed that my iPad died early on) but did take some pics and will share soon. Can you believe that we are just 4 days away from Christmas!! Holy smokes, how did that happen? I am about 90% done with my shopping, have one son who I am held up on but hope to accomplish his gifts later today or tomorrow. Before I begin, time to announce the very lucky winner of the HomeGoods $100 giveaway! Using random.org the winner is……. Judy says: December 16, 2014 at 7:02 pm ? Hi Tina, I too love Home Goods. Slowly but surely over the past few years I have replaced many items in my home with ones from them. I have styled my home with a European country look almost exclusively from Home Goods. By having their charge card the $10 bonus rewards are a welcome gift each month ( some months have been as high as $40 but we won?t tell the Mr. )I wish you were also giving away your basket as I have a close friend in need of such especially through the holidays. But your generous and talented spirit has inspired me to do the same and create one for her. She sure needs some TLC and love. May you and your family have a blessed and joyous Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New year. Judy Congratulations, please email me at [email protected] with your shipping details and have fun shopping! 1. RENNY AND REED. This NY based floral designing duo creates some of the most spectacular arrangements. I have been to parties/weddings that they have done, and to say their creations are works of art is simply not understatement! Here is an example of their incredible work.

So this blogger/instagammer (www.thebubblyjoy.com) posted this absolutely gorgeous picture of her outdoor dining scene and told me that my tabletop posts had inspired her to create it.
