Let us praise baby Jesus. It is Friday and I am on the cusp of a 4 day weekend. Hoo. Ray. Also worthy of an honorable mention, my family is on their way for the holidays. I will take them. As I have mentioned, I have not really been in the Christmas spirit this year, but that is quickly being turned around. I mean look, I am even posting Christmas inspiration photos. See below. As lovely and magical as this image is, doesn't it look like a fire hazard? Kinda.
So let's catch up on my week. Ok. So don't let the bah humbug attitude fools ya. I finally got my act together and wrapped some presents. I usually put more thought into the design and execution of my present wrapping. I like it funky and unique, but time and resources didn't allow this year. I think it turned out well, all things considered.
Favorite space of the week. Actually. Correction. Favorite space of the month. I spotted this space designed by Tobi Fairley in Southern Living back in November and I have been salivating ever since. I must recreate the ceiling. It is a must. And anytime a lantern is at play, I am on board. What a foyer. What a foyer.
Big azzzz news to report. The Target + Nieman Marcus Collection has finally taken a rollback (Walmart lingo) to 50%. I have to admit, this is a more suitable and accurate price point in my opinion. Now that we are more appropriately priced, I can consider the following for purchase.
Favorite new site of the week. Found this new Etsy site that I might barter my unborn child for a piece of. I am quite certain I have fallen in love with these colored gemstone earrings. I mean how can anyone argue with the fact that I need these? How?
My favorite DIY of the week. It is no shock that this next to genius project hails from one of my bloggy besties, Linda from My Crafty Home Life. I mean she blows me away time and time again. She took an ordinary tray from Lowe's and made it super glam glam (in the words of Martyn Bullard Lawrence). God I love that woman. I bought two and will be making one for me and one for my mom.
And I leave you with this. The reason I do not use Instagram to catalog my day, contrary to popular opinion. Many of you may not know, I spend my day job as an insurance broker. What you see below is from a continuing education class that I am required to attend on a yearly basis to maintain my license and designations. This image exemplifies the people and fashion that I encounter on the reg. I mean show of hands, who wouldn't love to get hourly fashion updates from me such as this? I mean where did he get that sweater and that dickie? What is crazy is that I am the one who sticks out like a sore thumb here.
I will check in with you sweets early next week. But until then, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend with friends, family, check out lines, baking, wrapping and the like. Love you. Really, really, mean it. XOXO
