Here’s a little fun fact about bloggers that all of you need to know.
Ahhhh, holidays. That time of year when we drive ourselves batty trying to create joy. This year, I listened to my own inner voice a bit more and kept things around the house a little simpler. I’m not sure the end results will put me in the holiday issue of HGTV Magazine, but… I LOVED the process of decorating with ONLY the things that make me happy or ‘work’ in the space.
I am thrilled with a capital “T” to be sharing my Christmas decor as part of this year’s HDC Holiday Homes. Thanks to Erin Spain for putting together this fun group of talented bloggers. Double thanks to Home Decorator’s collection for providing some of the festive inspiration. If you like what you see, there’s a chance to win a $250 gift card from Home Decorator’s Collection at the end of this post… squee! Without further ado… Christmas comin’ atcha!
Are you ready for some seasonal magic? Mantels overflowing with autumnal abundance? Pumpkins and gourds and mums galore? Acorns scattered ever so delicately across a harvest table runner with bundles of silk wrapped wheat place cards? Well… head on over to google for that. I’m well aware of the date, folks. And yes… a group of us are proudly posting our Fall Home Tour with a week or two left of “fall.”
A month ago, my friend Jen at Migonis Home emailed about a Spring House Tour she had planned. With 3 feet of snow outside and gray as faaaaaar as the eye could see, I decided it would be a fun chance to play ‘dress up’ with my dreary winter home! Until I started blogging, the concept of decorating for spring never occurred to me. But… that joyful ache for the flowers and the green grass and that smell in the morning when spring is so close you can taste it.. I always felt that. For me bringing that feeling into the house meant lots of flowers and greenery and sweet little accessories. Nothing complicated or intricate. Just color and textures and new LIFE!
