Weekend Joys~

 Nothing better then Brunch to start the weekend off right!
With a mimosa of course!  I met some friends at a great spot in Newton Ma called Cook, if you are in the area it's a cool spot for any meal!

I stopped into Whole Foods for some items before the snow arrived on Saturday and I just had to have this birch candle holder!  I Love it!  The simple things make me such a happy girl!

Another weekend joy, catching up on my favorite blogs!  How cute is this chalk board tree from, the HUNTED Interior blog.  I finally put up my tree.  I'm enjoying the soft white glow of the lights as I write this post, so soothing.  Hope your weekend was also a good one!

O Christmas Tree~

Traditional or unique all so festive!  I still need to get my tree and I can't wait!  I just love all that comes with having a tree up.  I especially enjoy the natural pine scent in my home, reminiscing with the ornaments and the lights glittering at night!  What's your tree decor style?!  If not a tree, what special holiday decor do you love?!

Let it Snow! ~

First day of snow in my area, a pretty dusting.  I don't know about you but it always helps me get in the holiday spirit!  Safe travels if you are also experiencing and enjoying the fluffy white today!

Time to Decorate!

Love these festive, simple, and beautiful images!  I'm feeling behind in decorating this year, I know it's only the 5th but before you know it, it's time to take it down.  I'm finally motivated to hang the wreaths I made two weekends ago and finish the rest of my decorating around the house.  How's your holiday decorating going? Are you a, tree up after Thanksgiving day, kind of decorator?
