a little this & a little that


morning friends!!

just a few things for you today~

tomorrow begins The 2014 Holiday House Walk!  jen rizzo pulls together a group of 30 homes full of inspiration & eye candy!! this year our tour was sponsored by balsam hill. i share about my fabulous experience with balsam hill here. we’re on day one so come back first thing tomorrow morning!

each year for the house walk i try to mix things up a little bit. each year i use just a little bit less “stuff”. i really want our home to feel cozy & welcoming and for me, that means less “stuff”. most all of our christmas decorations are either collections i started when the girls were babies, gifts from friends & family, nativity from africa, art made by my girls or something that just evokes emotion in me. this year i chose a couple pieces of art from lindsay letters. ya’ll. i have spent so much time on her site ( she’s currently running a special this weekend!!)…i just love her work & this years holiday release blew me away. shown above is the peppermint moss abstract  ( mine is the 30×36) and swiss cross canvas. ( to honor dan’s scandanavian heritage of course). the girls flipped when i hung that and added some little sisal trees from anthropologie, along with my ginormous dough bowl filled with vintage ornaments for some color this year! who says i’m all predictable & all things white?
