DIY Gold & Nature Tablescape

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, December 3, 2013, In : Holiday Decorations 
 I am being such a busy busy bee bustling about putting up Christmas decorations around here that I almost forgot to share my Thanksgiving tablescape. I'm calling this year's theme Golden glam with natural accents. Kinda how I feel about myself. While I'll never turn down a great designer handbag or a chance to take a ride in a luxury vehicle, I'd rather be digging my fingers into the soil planting a new agave. 

No big bucks were spent here to create this tablescape. Here is the breakdown

Whoa nelly it's been a bit since I've written! Time to get back into the swing of things eh?! Well, I'll try. I promise. I'll straddle up to the computer with this (already annoyingly large) baby belly and clickity clack away ;)

Easy Christmas Decorating: Bookcase

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, December 4, 2012, In : Holiday Decorations 

   These built in bookcases have been the best addition to our living room. The husband gets to feel accomplished by having built them himself and I get to decorate them. When I feel like futzing around I just shuffle the shelving arrangements and I feel like I have really done something with the day. Just kidding. But decorating these behemoths is a real treat. They are the very first thing you see when you enter our living room so I wanted to do something festive but not over whelming. Here...

He said he wanted a big one, Christmas Tree that is

Posted by Honor on Friday, November 30, 2012, In : Holiday Decorations 

 One of the biggest reasons why I love this man is his child like enthusiasm. He is the one that wakes me up at 4 am on Christmas morning. He is the one that likes to shake every present under the tree and trick me into revealing what is inside. What a stinker! So I totally saw it coming when he told me he wanted to get the largest tree possible... but this is a whole other bag of potato chips. 
 We went to a new 'cut your own tree' lot this year. It was quite a hike away, but totally worth it...

DIY Simple Country Christmas Mantel

Posted by Honor on Wednesday, November 28, 2012, In : Holiday Decorations 


A little country, a smidgen of rustic, a dash of eclectic and finish it off with a handful of glitter. That is about how I sum up my Christmas decor. I love to incorporate what I already have around the house, such as my vintage window. Top it off with some glittery lights and I am ready to get back to baking some cookies with Lou.
Hope you enjoy my mini tour of my Christmas mantel. Nothing very crazy, but a whole lot of homemade love ;) Hope your decorating is going well.

Do you feel it yet? Has that Christmas/Holiday spirit nipped you in the booty yet?
