{Pink Christmas}









I could not help but share these images today. I mean Christmas magazines are already in full force so why hold back on a Christmas spread that I have been looking at since last year to use as inspiration for this year. Last time I was IKEA I spotted a bunch of lighted paper stars like the ones that hang over the bed in the above and think a few white stars would be pretty to include in this years decor. I also love so many of the elements in this scene like the fur, the fresh garlands and wreaths, the pink, and the awesome wrapping papers and trims. I actually recently pulled the bottom picture from Will's blog because I recognized it as being in the same home so I had to include in the post. To see the home not all decorated for the holidays go here.

Well I was planning on hiking the Grand Canyon rim to rim this weekend but my friend was put on the injured list so I just got word that the trip will be put on hold. Now I have high hopes to work on some projects this weekend. It is actually kind of nice to finally have a weekend with nothing on the agenda...therefore I am signing off until next week.

Have a great weekend friends!

THe starlights are so cute! I love that they're all white. I have a black and white one above my bed, but after seeing this white one, I think I prefer it! Have a wonderful weekend (:

Have a great weekend. I love these pictures. Wicker & fur & gray=love.

Speaking of Christmas, I just got my Garnet Hill catalog and there is the prettiest silver & wood wreath for Christmas. I can't believe I'm in that mood!

Just came over via my (our!) lovely friend MacKenzie. Tons of of fun and wonderful posts here - I can see!

And how you can manage to produce so much inspiration and look so stylish and have 5 beautiful children - is beyond me!

Love the pelts in the chairs. That feels like winter to me. And that striped rug in front of the christmas tree, made me think that I want a tree skirt -- just like that.

The star lights remind me of Filipino parols, or star lanterns, that are hung for Christmas!
And the pink glasses are lovely ;)
