Every season, I love to visit Pottery Barn and gasp in awe at their beautiful home decor. In the past I’ve shared with you some Christmas Decor & Fall Decor, but today it’s time to lighten things up a bit with Spring Decorating! From basket-weave textures, to aquamarine votives, to terrarium gardens, & succulent walls….it’s all here!
So, pull up a chair, and grab your cappuccino, and enjoy this springtime tour of Pottery Barn.
Hygge is a way of life, that is embraced in Denmark, where according to various studies, people are happier than anywhere else in the world. By creating warm, cozy homes, celebrating the season, unplugging from technology, and connecting with loved ones and nature, the Danish have learned to live a satisfied and fulfilled life.
I decided to investigate the Hygge way of living, and what I discovered is simple and doable. It’s these simple steps that help the Danish actually enjoy their long winters, and embrace each season of life.
I always envision decorating the Christmas tree in a glorious, unstresful way. I picture a crackling fire, hot cocoa in mugs overflowing with marshmallows, Christmas music playing in the background, and us joyfully reminscing about life and memories as we delicately place each ornament on the beautifully lit tree. And, at the conclusion of this fantasy, I picture a Christmas tree that belongs in a Pottery Barn magazine or something.
Every year, I picture this heavenly decorating day as our kick off to Christmas, and plan for it, and it never quite turns out how I’d hoped.
In this post, I’ll explain what I’ve learned over the last few years caring for and decorating a pre-lit tree. Follow these Step By step instructions to have a Christmas tree that doesn’t become a pain the neck, & somewhat resembles a designer tree at the end of the day.
December is here, and holiday traditions are in full swing. The stockings are hung, the snow is falling outside, and the children are making their lists for Santa. But, what does Santa long for this time year? Yummy Sugary Christmas cookies to fill his belly during his long journey on Christmas Eve…of course! And, boy, have I got the best Cookie Collection for you. This “list” he will definite “check twice”!
So, let’s turn up the Christmas tunes & grab the flour, sugar, vanilla, & butter and start creating Christmas magic in the kitchen with these “Santa Approved” cookies!
I could not contain my excitement a couple months ago, when I saw the unveiling of the Magnolia Market Christmas Home Collection. I think my husband thought something very serious had happened, because I shrieked with excitement so abruptly.
I absolutely love Chip & Joanna Gaines. I love their spirit, their family life, their philosophy…basically everything about them. I want to be them!
Their home improvement show on HGTV called Fixer Upper, has completely transformed how I view decorating my own home. Adding a little country vintage flare here and there, and including chalkboard elements a barn door and some shiplap are a Fixer Upper must.
If you’ve never heard of this adorable couple, then…
“Pardon My French Door, But Holy Shiplap…You’re Life Is About To Be Changed Forever!”
I absolutely go googly-eyed over this time of year! Between all the Christmas decorations and Sparkly lights, I can hardly contain my excitement for the impending Christmas season. There are so many activities and family gatherings I look forward to every Christmas. But quite honestly, some of my most treasured moments, are cozy nights at home by the fireplace, hot chocolate in hand, Christmas lights glowing, carols playing in the background, and cookies baking in the oven.
We are just a few weeks away from Thanksgiving, and preparations are in full swing. Hosting Thanksgiving at our house is like an Olympic event. It’s probably my husband’s favorite holiday. What man doesn’t love stuffing himself with amazing food all day, and watching football, am I right?!
But he treats Thanksgiving much like Bob does from Bob’s Burgers! He’s infatuated with Thanksgiving. Thankfully, though, he does not talk with our bird like Bob does on the show! But, he gets just as excited!
