hope you all had a great weekend!
I had a pretty perfect one: relaxing with just enough activity.
I had a christmas party with my girlfriends, a gorgeous and so special baby shower, and a christmas date night with my husband. Sunday consisted of wrapping gifts, watching more christmas movies (The Holiday this weekend!), and baking cookies.
oh, and friday was national ugly christmas sweater day and they had us dress for the occasion at work so I whipped out this pretty little gem.
here are a few snapshots, and a look at the piece we found to use as a makeshift pantry.
we found these mercury glass trees at marshals and they are just perfect. they match our vases from pottery barn with a mercury glass base and some candles we have throughout the living room.
at $10 each, they were a steal. I didn’t know where to put them yet so here they awkwardly are with our Nest thing that I mess up on a daily basis when trying to change the temperature.
the same place where we found our sideboard, Nadeau, is where we found my other favorite piece.
our kitchen has pretty great cabinet space, but there is no designated pantry and therefor no easy, useful space to put all of our food.
when we came across this piece I knew it would work perfectly.
I love the open space in the middle to decorate for the holidays or to have as a makeshift bar set up for other times of the year.
I’d ultimately like to change the knobs out but haven’t found anything just yet.
there were two poinsettias,
but it took me no time to kill the other one. shocker.

I kinda want to change out the hurricanes to this cute set up instead
fireplace garland from HomeGoods, a Christmas dream-land with a parking lot that is holiday hell and I’m lucky we made it out alive.

trying to finish up some christmas cards, and since I still haven’t bought any twinkle lights for my vase I just put a ton of regular lights in it. not quite the same effect, but what the hell.
my husband thinks it’s hideous.
I think it’s free so he should be real proud of me.
I mean they are totally as pretty as these. Identical.
