Love the personal and home accessories from Proud Mary adding  an eclectic touch for that bohemian girl on your list.

Luminaries

December 2, 2010

I’m hosting a few shindigs this holiday season and I was thinking I needed to bring the luminary back. When I was a kid we lived on this really long one way street and on Christmas eve everyone lined luminaries out in front of their house . It was so pretty and such a fond memory.  It’s quite simple too. Brown or white paper bags, fill the bottom with a bit of sand to weight it down and a candle. Ta da!

Let the decorating begin!

November 29, 2010

I’m must admit I’m a total dork. I’m that girl that starts to decorate her house the second the last plate hits the dishwasher after Thanksgiving dinner. I love to the twinkle of little white lights all over the house. So I spent my day doing it up and spreading holiday cheer all over my home. Probably as no surprise I have a little bit of a theme. Green,white, silver and a dash of turquoise. Hope these images get you in the spirit too.
