10 Best :: Splendid Summer Favors

When I was 14, I received a small, beaded journal from a friend’s birthday party and thought I’d never seen anything so beautiful.

DIY :: Thankful for Leftovers

Vision in White

January is the month of fresh starts… out with the old; in with the new!

Weekend Notes

The Thanksgiving feast has come and gone, and I’m still feeling a bit like a turkey (stuffed, that is!) We enjoyed a wonderful day full of family, food and laughter, and I’m thankful for this weekend to get reorganized and make the decorating switch from pumpkins & gourds to Christmas magic!
