Wishing You.

A Lovely New year.



{Click Images To Enlarge So Their Lovely Detail Can Be Better Seen.}
I have learned many {interior related} things this year. One of which is the obvious.. that I will never, ever tire of black and white interiors.

And that the idea of colorful interiors is one that I find quite tempting. What energy some of these rooms must have.. I do not know, however, if I would easily tire of them.

But most importantly I have learned that so many others out there share the same passion for interior design as I do. Before I discovered blogging, I had only a small number of people to discuss decor with. And now, not only can I share my ideas, work, inspiration, and {home} fantasies, but I can also read about the many others that feel the same. So on that note, 2009 was a great year.. a year of discovery perhaps.. a year of learning and trying new things.. a year of realizing that my dream career may {hopefully} one day come true...
So here is to you my fellow bloggers..
Thank you for a beautiful year.

Divine December.

We are supposed to get seven inches of snow this weekend.

My girls are really looking forward to making a Snow man.
I am looking forward to watching it fall from the sky as I stand, sipping warm coffee by my Christmas tree, watching it from my WARM living room.

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things.

Just a little Christmas sparkle.

Though I love nearly all Christmas decor, my favorite is the timelessly elegant. I've gathered just a few photographs that I find lovely... I hope to post more later.. but for now.. here is just a sample of a few of my favorite things...

Thankful seems like such a small word when I think of all of the blessings I have..

Each of these table tops are so beautiful in their own lovely, individual and meaningful way.

And though decorating for the holidays is one of my very favorite things to do, I am determined to think less of the china matching the silver, or the napkins folded just right, and instead focus on WHO is at my table and WHY they are there.

Yes the food will be delicious. But more delicious than a warm pumpkin pie is the feeling of warmth in one's heart when a simple glance around that beautiful table will feed one's soul with memories and love.

THAT is perhaps the best recipe for a perfect Thanksgiving.

And I plan on creating lots and lots of it.

Below are three lovely ideas that capture the essence of Thanksgiving yet are simple to recreate.

I love the simple message of "Thanks" on this napkin ring. However, one could also use this same idea but with names instead, creating lovely place cards.

What I love most about this lovely idea is the way mine will be created. My girls and I are going to enjoy a walk through the park on a chilly Saturday morning and they will be filled with pride as they find the perfect pine cones to use for our display.

The smell. Can you imagine the smell? This is a must.

I hope I have given a tad of inspiration to you..
May you all be blessed with a warm and magical Thanksgiving.
Best Wishes,

I've read the books. Yes, they are wonderful. Tonight I am insane. But it will be fun. I'm joining a number of my girlfriends to gather at midnight to see the long anticipated New Moon.

I am going to be SO tired when I hear my alarm at 6am.

Dear Edward and Jacob,
I know you will make my sleepless night worthwhile. LOL

I apologize for my lack of posts. I have been extremely busy lately with school, work, etc. Oh how I've missed this blog.
