Vintage Christmas Party

Oh how fun this Vintage Christmas party would have been.   Yes... I said, "Would have been." :( One of my kiddos came down with a fever a couple of days before our annual Santa Night Party this year.  Unfortunately, his little body can't handle fevers like some others can.  He's one of the not-so-lucky ones that suffer from febrile seizures.  The morning before our party date, he once again had a seizure, and once the craziness calmed down... I immediately sent out notifications to our friends, letting them know that we had to cancel the party for this year, so we...

Christmas Chalkboard Art

Having a chalkboard in your home is FABULOUS way to incorporate each holiday and season that comes around. From the minute we moved in to our house, I knew I wanted a large chalkboard in our foyer. Visions of little rabbits for Easter, hearts for Valentine's Day, and snowflakes for winter, were all in my head, and I couldn't wait to get "drawing." This year, my friend Kate came over, and while helping me prepare for my Favorite Things party, I looked at her and ever so gently asked, got down on my knees and BEGGED, her to create something beautiful...

Fantabulosity’s Holiday Gift Guide

You know that urge you get to buy yourself something, when you're shopping for others?  No?  {Facepalm} Maybe it's just me then? I can't help it though! I'm totally drawn to pretty things, and think, I have to have that! But if I seriously buy myself one more thing this year, {trying to justify that it's just an advance Christmas gift from my husband}, my husband may put me on lockdown.  :) So while I was shopping for some gal pals of mine the other day, anytime that I would see something that I thought I had to have, or wished that someone...

Tips for Creating a Holiday Place Setting

This Holiday Place Setting post has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and Coca-Cola. But... all opinions are mine alone, pinky promise! #SipsOfJoy #CollectiveBias Can you believe my husband and I have lived in our current home, OVER two years?  That's never happened.  If you've been on our home tour, then you know we move constantly.  We build, move-in, sell, repeat.  But for some reason we've hung on to this house a little longer than usual.  I have to think it's because of all the "thought," that we put in to the design of this one, so we can have the room...

Say “I Love You” with a Mug… What?

I have the sweetest friends.  I honestly don't know how, but people show up in my life that I honestly believe that God puts people here on this earth, destined to be good friends.  My dear friend Heather is no exception.  After my Facebook post the other day about how my husband is unhappy with my choice of coffee cups that I keep in our home, she messaged me and told me she had a gift to give me at church on Sunday. Oh.My.Word!  Are these not the cutest coffee mugs ever!?  Not only are they cute, but they are the exact style of coffee mug that my hubby wanted!  {Larger and ceramic.  My favorite...

Our Holiday Home Tour

Ahhhh Christmas time!  I'll be honest... I'm not a Grinch, but in years past when Christmas time would roll around, I'd get my fill of seeing Christmas decorations up at everyone else's home.  I had no desire to decorate, only because I would stare at it for a month and think about how I had to take it all down in 30 days.  Anyone with me? Well, this year it was a little different.  We moved in to a new home, and my husband was asked by a friend if we would participate in a local charity benefit that involved opening...

Fireplace Christmas Mantel Decorations

If you saw my 2013 Christmas Home tour, you may have already seen my fireplace mantel Christmas decorations.  They are by FAR my most favorite thing to put up when Christmas time comes around. I had always admired everyone's mantels, and couldn't wait to have one of my own to decorate one day for Christmas. Why Christmas time, rather than all year long? Totally because I get to hang stockings on the mantel! In case Pinterest brought you here, and you want to see the details of my fireplace mantel Christmas decorations, let me explain the goods: Far left picture frame: IKEA...
