~Getting in the Mood for Christmas~

Did you get snow today? We did and it’s beautiful! I can’t help it…I love a snow day!

It’s the perfect thing to get me in the mood to start decorating for Christmas. Last week, I began my first project, which was my Picture Frame Christmas Tree.

I’m loving it! It’s in my foyer and I can’t help but smile every time I walk past it.

Did you catch my post where I reviewed the Frasier Fir products from Thymes? Talk about getting in the mood for Christmas! My house smells like a fresh-cut tree and I don’t even have a tree up yet…

So with the snow, the Picture Frame Christmas Tree and the Frasier Fir scent floating through the house, I’m definitely in the mood for Christmas.

But it’s also time to party!

I’d like to give a big Thank You to Laura from The Unique Nest. She has been a fabulous guest co-host for the last 6 weeks. I’ve loved having her and so excited to see what she’s chosen for the features for today’s party.

Hi everyone! My name is Laura and I’m here as a guest co-host from The Unique Nest! I’m thrilled to have been part of this great Twirl and Take a Bow linky party for the past several weeks and I’m super excited to present this week’s features.
If you’re not familiar with my blog The Unique Nest I’d love to have you stop over for a visit. I post a lot of inspirational home decor and interior design work, along with recipes and DIY projects. For this week’s features I wanted to select bloggers that inspire me and try to give you a sense of “the look I love”. There are so many talented, visionary and creative bloggers out there that it’s tough to narrow it down to just a few. I hope you like my picks and I hope you have a great week!


~ Now…on to the FEATURES ~

The first feature I chose is so adorable and fun for Thanksgiving with the kids. It’s chic yet casual and give kids something fun to do while us adults feast and celebrate. My children love to color and I’m thinking that this setup from A Blissful Nest might keep the kiddos under control while all the adults dig in…

OK – so I’m crazy over the idea of this gratitude tree from Bliss at Home. Not only is her room gorgeous (obviously) but it’s such a great idea for Thanksgiving and super simple. I’m going to try this with the family this year and think it’s just AWESOME!

I couldn’t pick features this week without sharing from one of my favorite DIY bloggers Brepurposed. This girl has so much talent and is always visionary with her designs. These two-toned french script end tables are just GORGEOUS!

On a local note, one of my favorite bloggers/furniture DIYers is going to be launching her store opening next week in Troy, NY. Sarah from Funcycled takes old pieces that have been left behind and turns them into treasures. She is so talented and I’m so excited that her dream of opening a brick and mortar is coming true. Congratulations Sarah!
