Happy Thanksgiving!

Wishing a Happy Thanksgiving to each and every one of you! It's my favorite holiday...a time to stop and count my blessings. Our gathering may be small this year, but those who cannot be at the table will be in our hearts. And I thank you, my wonderful readers, for always taking time out of your busy day to stop by and visit. It means so much to me. Enjoy this special day with your family!

Dollar Store Nativity Makeover

I have been eyeing those beautiful porcelain Nativity sets for a while now but the price has always made me hesitate. I love the classic look that the simplicity of white figurines gives to the Nativity. Then I decided...I would just paint my own! So I set out in search of a set that would fill my requirements. But that's when I encountered a problem.

Four Elements of a Christmas Mantel and Some Inspiration

Now that November has arrived, my mind is turning to decorating for Christmas! Always first and foremost in my mind is the mantel because, for me, it sets my theme for the holidays and gives me a direction for the rest of my decor. So I thought I would share my thought process with you and also show you a few of my past mantels for a little inspiration!

Elegant Pottery Barn Inspired Thanksgiving Tablescape

I am so excited because Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday, is right around the corner! I love it because it's one of the few times that I get to have my extended family all together around one table. And while this year will not be like the others, we can still have smaller, more intimate gatherings. So I have set an elegant table for my immediate family since that's who I will actually be with on Thanksgiving Day.

Six Unique Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Wow! Have you realized that Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away? It's time for me to get my mojo on and start planning! Sooo... I decided to take a look at six of my favorite centerpieces for a little Turkey Day inspiration! And I realized that they all have two things in common...a unique container or platform for the centerpiece and a great table runner to tie it all together.

It was really simple to put together…I just added a few of my favorite projects to some of my favorite elements!

Easy Magnolia Inspired Charcuterie Serving Board

With the holidays ahead (and perhaps a few small gatherings in my future) I have been eyeing the beautiful charcuterie boards filled with artfully arranged snacks. Sooo...I think it's time to pull out the serving board that I created and used as a centerpiece last year! I had spotted Joanna Gaines' farmhouse version at Magnolia Market and was immediately smitten. My problem...the size that I needed was very expensive at $88. :-( But I knew that even though I have zero woodworking skills, I was going to have to attempt to make it!

Halloween Mantel with DIY Mantel Scarf

Now that October has finally arrived, it's time to take out one of my all-time favorite projects...my Halloween mantel scarf! I had been eyeing them for two years and I had honestly debated about just ordering one. But I knew I wanted one to custom fit my mantel plus I was not sure what the fabric would look like in person. Sooo....I finally bit the bullet and made my own! And...I LOVE it! I think you might love it, too, so I decided to share the instructions once again.
