Friday Favorites – February 16, 2018

Man, it’s been a while…

This winter has draaaaggged on far too long

I’m tired of the cold

Tired of the snow

Tired of being tired

I’ve been trying to keep up with the painting projects within our own house

And everyday I’m newly inspired

(almost makes things confusing, because everyday there’s something

new and exciting that I love and want to try)

Friday Favorites – Dec 22, 2017

There was so much beautiful Christmas decorating out in insta-land this holiday season.

I felt so inspired to clean and to create and decorate.

In the end, we just put up the same old decorations.

The kids were just so excited to see their old favorites.

We laughed and shared stories,

and that was more special than any new trinkets I may have found at Homesense.

There’s always next year…

This week’s Friday Favorites is a collection of some of the favorite

Christmas decorating I enjoyed this holiday season.

 

Merry Christmas!

 

            

Friday Favorites – Dec 15, 2017

Only 10 sleeps left until Christmas and all I’ve managed to do is pull the boxes of decorations out of storage and haul them upstairs.

Does it count as decorating if I open up the boxes and you can see the decorations inside?

So much to do, so little time…

ALL… THE… CRISTMAS… INSPIRATION…out there right now!!!

I can hardly stand it!

It’s all so stunning… charming… beautiful!

I really need to get my butt in gear and start decorating.

The tree is up…

And the elf has made an appearance…

But I’ve got a 16 year old with a birthday this weekend and we’ve got some partying to do first!

Inspire Me Monday – Bria Hammel Interiors

I just recently stumbled upon the blog of Bria Hammel Interiors

and just couldn’t stop scrolling.

I love the bright spaces…

I love their attention to details…

I love the interesting tile backsplashes…

And I expecially LOVE their use of bright and bold wallpaper!

Friday Favorites – Nov 17/17

Snow is blanketing the ground.

Christmas songs are playing on the radio.

Holiday decorations are filling the stores.

And the kids letters to Santa are ready to be mailed.

I guess that means its just about time to start dragging all the Christmas decorations out of storage (and I just finished cleaning up and putting away all the Halloween decorations!)

Tis the season…

Friday Favorites – 11/03/2017

The day after Halloween we woke up to snow.

And it’s cold…

darn cold.

So, I’m going to start dreaming of Christmas

… and just ignore the skeletons and zombies

currently frozen to the ground, buried under the snow.

Inspire Me Monday – Fall Porches

I wish I could do something like this…

I tried to do something like this…

But the weather just doesn’t cooperate up here.

Here, it froze early and killed my potted mums, before the pumpkins were even out in the stores.

But I still gaze at these lovely porches and wish.

Oh well, on to Halloween decorating…

Almost the end of October…

Hard to imagine?

The kids are sooooo excited for Halloween,

(close rival to Christmas for favorite holiday)

but the current weather forecast is calling for snow from the 31st to the foreseeable future,

so I’m not so excited…

Here’s crossing our fingers the snow holds off until after trick-or-treating!

The kids are all home for a 4 day weekend.

And that’s a good thing…

Everyone was beyond ready for a rest.

September starts off with such a bang and it’s been a full month of hard core school & activities.

Whew, even I was ready for a sleep in.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Enjoy!
