Your guide to getting cozy

Don't you just love it..fall is so wonderful. I put a list of items together that can make getting cozier even better!



I highly recommend all these things! Wouldn't #9 feel so great with some black leggings and some camper socks! Like fall wrapping you up with a big cozy hug!

My table hates me!

Everyday when I look into my sad little dining room, I get the most guilty feeling when I see my bare unattended to table. I remember the good ole' days when it was covered in china, and napkins, and new flowers almost every week...what happened? Now it has a very thing layer of dust, and a pile of grass seed bags and a weed killer spray bottle on one chair. I know it hates me, but not for long! I have found some Easter inspiration, that can also carry over into a Spring theme! Even if you're not hosting, it's nice to have a fun and fresh tablescape.

Here's what I found from the amAZING Amy Atlas.








A few great kid table ideas....




And from the incredible Martha Stewart ...




How great are those?! Happy table decorating!! Anyone know where I can find colorful tapered candles, preferably in aqua?

On the road...




We're going to be doing a looooottt of driving, this Christmas week. We're headed out early this morning for a gala event tonight in Charleston (my Christmas gift to Will), I was going to wear this but the "overnight" isn't getting here until tomorrow which is definitely too late, so we're off a little early to do some dress shopping (fine by me!)




My husband's two amazing talents... shagging -yes that's dancing (;- and wrapping gifts.



See you back here tomorrow with a designer spotlight!

Christmas in the dining room

Do you ever have those moments when you look in the mirror and realize you're missing an earring, a button on your shirt popped open, or some other wardrobe malfunction, and you think, "how many people have I seen or talked to, and they haven't said ANYTHING?!" That happened to me this morning, I've been at school for well over an hour, have held several conversations, and just went to the bathroom to find that my left eye not only had smeared mascara, but also a tear line running to my cheek!! What a mess! I had something in my eye on the way to school and my eye started watering, I thought I cleaned it off...clearly not! I went back to ask a friend why nothing was said, her response "oh, I didn't notice." Right.
Lesson today: Be a GOOD friend, let them know when something is a little off!!

Now that I got that out of my system..let's talk about Christmas in the dining room. This is a FUN place to decorate in my opinion, and I found lots of inspiration!





Do you have cupcake or cake stands? Use them! Piled with ornaments, fruit, candy, greenery, even jewerly!




 I think I might be doing this, just have to check the prices on limes first.
Very clever way to dress a dining window.



Love this idea, a tree branch with strings of ornaments. They did this in J.Crew, have you noticed, all throughout the store.


Or...you could just make yourself the centerpiece!
