So I built my kiddo a desktop. The half wall still isn't finished, our pantry doors are stripped and neglected in the garage, and half our light switches have been changed from ivory to white. And you know, Christmastime. Because DIY ADD. It's a thing. Any other sufferers out there? ๐Ÿคฃ Hope you had a great weekend friends!! (This little project is on the blog โžก๏ธ @lisashineyourlight ) #envirotexlite @fabfurnitureflippincontest

Happy Monday peeps!  @lynchcreekfarm is spreading lots of Christmas cheer this year โค๏ธ๐ŸŽ„โค๏ธ and I'm so happy to partner with them to give away the same gorgeous wreath of noble fir, cedar, white pine and bay leaf that I used on our front door this year (it smells amazing!)

Happy Sunday Funday! If you happened to see my struggle with my first artificial tree on stories this week......it turns out maybe I bought the worst fake tree on the planet (it looked so good in the store!!) So.....because this time of year isn't crazy enough and I don't have more important things to be doing (๐Ÿ˜‚) I undecorated it, packed it up and traded it in for a funky little live tree! We are waiting for Peter to get home from college to go get our "family" tree and decorate it together while eating our requisite chocolate croissants from Trader Joe's ๐Ÿ˜„because as long as my kids want to keep that tradition going, I'm all in!! ๐ŸŽ„Enjoy your day sweet friends, and if you have a few moments stop by to see a bit of our Christmas home and check out a fun holiday giveaway from @lynchcreekfarm !
Christmas tree SOS! We're a live Christmas tree family, always have been, and I wish I could have one in every room!! However our family room where we watch TV is smallish, and the only place for a tree is right next to the fireplace which we use ALL the time, and a live tree in here starts dropping it's needles like crazy within a couple of weeks. Soooooo.......yesterday I bought myself a slim faux tree for this room (we'll still get a live tree for the family to decorate - but now I have my very own to do with what I want! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ) Last night I was all - why didn't we do this sooner - this is the most amazing thing ever - no arguing over the lights, no trying to get it to stand up straight!! No needles all over the floor!! But then today in the daylight.....it looks so sad. And fake! So if you're a faux-tree pro, I need your advice!! Any tips and tricks to "spruce" ๐Ÿ˜„ up this thing???
These three cute cousins all got Love Your Melon hats for Christmas last year....so cozy and I love that 50% of the proceeds go towards pediatric cancer research and initiatives!!

For about 6 months I've been daydreaming hard about ripping out the rest of our linoleum flooring and that sweet 80s tile in our foyer and replacing it with hardwoods. I have a weird love of herringbone, and think I have pinned every herringbone wood patterned floor on the planet!! So you can imagine my joy at finding these beautiful floors at the inn we stayed at in Vermont this weekend! So gorgeous, and I especially loved how wide plank flooring separated different areas!! Seriously, someone get me a jackhammer quick!! That tile has no chance of making it into 2018!! #ihavethisthingwithfloors
Hi friends!! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Mark and I took our oldest back to school in Vermont yesterday and then spent the night in Woodstock, VT on our way home. We've never been there before and both the town and the Inn were so unbelievably charming and beautiful! They were in full on Christmas decorating mode when we arrived, including building the largest real gingerbread house I've ever seen.....I can't wait to go home and Christmas-ify our house after staying there!
These last few weeks have been such fun joining @pamsimpledetails @lifeofblissblog @crazywonderfulblog @katiehchalk @thisishappiness and @jenniferdimplesandtangles to share do-able projects, spruce ups and ideas to get ready for the holiday season!!!

Every Friday I post a design board with some fun finds, saves, splurges and ways to DIY the look for less. There are so many good sales this time of year! And thanks to @pamsimpledetails I need to make a trip to Ikea because how did I not know about that brass lamp???

Happy Sunday Funday!! I started an impromptu project this weekend that I've been mulling over since we moved here.....tricking out this half wall with moulding! That boring drywalled column was just begging for some architectural detailing don't you think? Still in progress....more to come soon!
