Thank You So Much!

Monday, November 25th, 2013

Friends, I found out that I won the 2013 Best DIY Blog in the Best Home Blog Awards hosted by Lamps Plus, how exciting! I have you to thank, those of you who voted, I’m surprised and so thrilled!

I wandered into my local Lamps Plus store a few years ago and I’ve been a fan of their products ever since. I used their drum chandelier and plug in pendant in my son’s room in 2011 and raspberry pink lamp in our guest room makeover this past summer.

Two of their mirrors have long been favorites of mine, the Casbah which hangs in my living room and the Hill & Dale which hangs in our hall bathroom (links below).  You can see both mirrors in this home tour I posted earlier this year, and I’ve also rounded up more of my current favorites.

Holiday Greenery Giveaway

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

One of the most wonderful things about decorating in December is the scent from fresh evergreens on display in the home. When I come through the door, I pause and breathe in – it’s not Christmas without that smell! Fresh holiday evergreens are a wonderful gift for yourself or to send to someone on your list.

I’ve ordered evergreens for photo shoots from Lynch Creek Farm several times over the years and I love when the box arrives on my door a few days later filled with fresh greenery from the state of Washington. I ordered holly, a wreath, and garland in October to stage a few vignettes for the fabric and gift wrap lookbook and when I was done, I layered it in the living room – it lasted for weeks!

This week, the kind people at Lynch Creek Farm are giving away three store credits for $75 so you can order whatever you please and have it shipped to your door in December. Winners will be announced on Sunday in time to order for holiday shipment.
