Ruffled Blog Feature

A few weeks ago a friend of mine, Jasmine from Jasmine Nicole Photography, asked if I would be interested in doing a styled shoot with her (she a crazy good photographer). I was so excited to be asked (and a little nervous about screwing it up). Anyway, she let me know what she was thinking of doing and we met to discuss details.  Hopefully I will have pictures to show you all, but until then, you can check out the St. Patrick’s Day Inspired Shoot over on Ruffled Blog or on Jasmine’s blog.

12 Days of Christmas and Other Fun Things

Homemade Christmas Advent Calendar

This year I thought it would be crazy  fun to do a “12 Days of Christmas” for my incredible hubby.  He’s been working so hard for our family and taking care of us all, I wanted to do something to show him how much I love him and what he means to me. So Tuesday night I wrapped everything/finished creating things, and put it under the tree. (Need some ideas or an explanation? Check out Passionate Homemaking.) Today was the first day. He opened his gift this morning. On the 1st day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… […]

Christmas Traditions: Decorating Gingerbread Houses

Christmas 2012 Traditions: Decorating Gingerbread Houses

I big-ol-heart Christmas. The month of December is one of my favorite of the year. I love the food, the gift giving, the decor, and the traditions. (Of course I feel I should add- the bestest part of Christmas is Jesus!) Christmas at our house brings with it lots of traditions. Some of them are from our childhoods (like decorating houses!) and some of them are new ones that we started as a family. This year, since Greg was serving at the church all day Sunday, Asa and I decided to invite a friend and his mom to come decorate […]

Where to Hang Your Stockings (When you don’t have a mantle)

Pottery Barn Engraved Photo Stocking Holder

Where do you hang your stockings when you don’t have a fireplace mantle? The last few years we have placed our stocking holders on a bookshelf that was out of the way and the boys couldn’t/didn’t get into. We use these stocking holders from Pottery Barn (I just love that we can change out our pictures every year! They were an investment, but I feel like they were worth it since we will be using them for the next 20- 50 years- once we get a house with a fireplace and mantle of course!) Another shot.

A Vintage/Anthropologie Inspired Little Man Baby Shower

Fox Cake

I’m excited to share this vintage, Anthropologie, little man inspired baby shower with you all today! Back in April a sweet friend of mine was going to be having a baby boy. I wanted to help plan/style the party. Since Tish (my friend) is a lover of all things eclectic, and is a photographer, it made sense to combine the two loves and create this dessert table. We wanted to bring an indoor nursery outside and created a faux wall to help feature the desserts. We used family pictures, art, “G’ for baby Greyson, and a DIY deer head (my […]
