What I’ll Be Doing This Week…

It’s about that time to start taking out the bows, ribbons, wreaths and all the trimmings! I am starting a new series later this week, called Deck The Halls! Every week leading up to Christmas, I will feature a spot in my home that is all ready for the holiday season. (This will be a great motivator for me, as I seem to put things off!) These are the things I am thinking about for this week, via pinterest:

Over the years, I have decorated our home similar to these ideas above. This might be a little ambitious for the week, but I am (hopefully) up for the challenge! Wish me luck!

Have you added any holiday decor yet? I would love to hear about it!!

Happy Thanksgiving and a Guest Post!

Happy Thanksgiving week! I look forward to eating a lot, relaxing and eating a lot! I cannot believe Christmas is around the corner. Where has the time gone? This time of year really makes me think about all I am thankful for. My wonderful family and friends who are so dear to my heart- I am so thankful for you!

I am also out and about today, guest posting over at Kristy’s blog, Hyphen Interiors, while she is getting prepared for her move! I love Kristy’s design blog and I am so happy to be over there today, sharing some great holiday decor ideas. Stop over and check it out here!

Happy Halloween!

Here’s to a great and spooky halloween! It’s such a fun holiday… why not have fun with your pumpkin decor? Here’s one of my favorite images of painted pumpkins, via pinterest:

Memorial Day Festivities

I love the beginning of summer- the warm weather, the fresh fruit and spending time with friends and family. And especially on Memorial Day Weekend, I feel especially patriotic and like to pay tribute to the men and women of our military! Thanks for all you do to keep us safe. Here are some great, patriotic images for you on this nice, long weekend! Enjoy!

Have a wonderful, restful weekend with friends and family! I think I’ll go have some more watermelon. Yum!
