A couple of us went shopping.

I set up a drink table on the front porch of my house for Thanksgiving. We had 34 to our house. It was a great gathering of friends and family.

We worked on tile selections for new projects.

And we shopped for antiques! I love this chair!

Well, that is it for here lately. We hope all of y’all had a great time over thanksgiving. We definitely did.

BTW… If you follow me on instagram sorry for some of the repeat pics of thanksgiving!

XO,

P.S. I forgot to include this photo. I did not spend Thanksgiving with all my family, only part of it. But I loved seeing this photo on thanksgiving day of my dad and nephew on a walk. This is what holidays are about.

Southern Living Idea House Christmas

Happy Friday y’all! We traveled back to the idea house in Senoia, Georgia last weekend to decorate the 2012 Southern Living Idea House for Christmas. The house is now open for tours every weds-sun until December 23rd…. So go check it out. So you ready for some Christmas??? I know it is only October but I guess we are embracing the phrase the early bird gets the worm! So here goes Christmas… Ho Ho Ho!

We started on Saturday with designer and sponsor day at the Idea House. I was so excited my amazing mom and my sweet cousin Hannah joined me. It made it a wonderful day.

Wrapping gifts for under the trees!

Lots of pom poms for the presents. Jenny, Lynn, and Kate made lots of poms pins ahead of time so we were ready to wrap. You girls could go in the professional pom pom making business.

Lynn stamped our packages for under the trees… This would never have worked for me when I was a child. I was the worst about sneaking around and figuring out my gifts.

If you have a chance go check out the house. A few thanks to my Christmas Elves. Thank you Jenny, Kate, and Lynn for making pom poms. Thanks Blaine for making the super cool Pinecone snowflakes. They are awesome! Jenny and Leslie thanks for wrapping tons of gifts! And to the install elves thanks to Scott, Frank, Christina, Lynn, and my mom… You all rock! Santa is going to recruit y’all to the official elf crew!

Merry Christmas! (just a little early)
