holiday inspiration

i love the holiday season.

of course i love celebrating with family and eating delicious food. but honestly, i love making gifts and decorating. there is something about the holiday season that inspires creativity. ugh.

so, as i have been searching for inspiration, i thought i'd share  some of my finds with you. 

don't worry, i will make sure to take photos of the creations made...

isn't this lovely? just everything about it.

feathers. silver. gold. black. white. dark blue. woodsy. natural. glitter. deep red.


oh, and we started our holiday decor today, actually. we bought our christmas tree. i know. maybe it's a little early in your mind. but, i just love the holidays. 

i cannot wait to invite you into the holiday creativity + mess throughout the month of december. and, i'd love to see yours.

happy belated thanksgiving!

poor man's gard[en]

well, despite the rain, we somehow painted the front of our home.

it all started with a little gardening and quickly transitioned into painting...a spontaneous transformation.

i know we've been talking about it for almost two years now but we finally did it. probably because it was spontaneous. sometimes that is the only way to get things done.

and here are a few photos to give you a little preview. i didn't have time to take good photos (because of the rain) but i'll show you them soon.

poor man's gard[en] phase 4: painting the house

just to remind you what the house looked like before we began painting + landscaping...

phase 1

phase 2+3

and now, 

a little hint...

we are so glad the front is almost finished. haven't done the sides yet but at least it's a start. right?!

hope you enjoyed your rainy weekend + first few days of sunshine [if you are in southern california, that is]. i'll be around tomorrow for something fun...

lost+found, and a little bit more...

welp, i didn't fall off the face of the earth.

i had jury duty. and a bit of a a break. well, more like a 'what am i doing & where am i going' break. you know. a break that requires you to refocus and think through some things. yes. that kind.

so, now that i feel a bit more focused and rejuvenated, i have some things to show you...

but first, this week's lost+found

here is {miss abbie}


+ found

i know. i wanted to keep her. but, well, you know the rest. i don't have anymore room. 

and, the other fun news is, i received some wedding photos of the last two weddings i did. they are great.

here is a sneak peek. i'll show you the rest next week...



thanks for being so patient with me these last few weeks. i promise i'll be better at blogging and sharing with you. thanks for all of your love, support & interest along the way!
