New Years Eve decor is not a holiday that I usually give a second thought of decorating for. After a solid three months of styling and decorating I’m ready for a break and ready to get back to faux finish and painting. Could I style a big New Years Eve bash? I absolutely can. As far as decorating my home for New Years it just isn’t on my radar. This year was a bit different, though. Creating this style for yourself doesn’t require much decorating at all.  It’s more like setting a table only it’s a cozy little indoor space. Think indoor… View Post

Today I’m going to share how I created this French Christmas holiday table setting. This is super easy and budget friendly too!

I’m excited about this blog post! This is the first year I have shared my holiday home decor all in one post. In case you didn’t know, you are visiting Narnia today. I kid.

I like to keep the porch area more in line with my preference for French Country and… View Post

Since childhood, I have loved everything about this time of year, but Christmas holds a special place in my heart. Seeing happy little faces with eyes full of wonder and amazement.

Of course, there are the gatherings for dinners and Christmas parties that are always fun. Most of all I love all the twinkling lights and the decorations. The garland, real or faux, bows and ribbons galore just make every space feel… View Post

Thanksgiving is just one week away and like many of you I have been busy preparing for the arrival of family and friends. In the midst of all the holiday preparations, I have also been working on quite a few other projects, which includes these frosted pinecones. I am going to share a DIY tutorial, but first, right here is where anyone who is not a blogger, e-commerce, online shop owner, or small business owner might want to skip ahead to the DIY tutorial at the bottom of this post. For those that have continued to read- I am hosting… View Post
