Happy Monday friends! Hope you had a great weekend. Is it raining where you live? It has been raining for nine days straight here in Atlanta. And hello, is anyone used to it being dark at 5:30?!? I honestly never get used to it and will pretty much complain about it every night until spring.
Early dark evenings do mean one good thing: the holidays are looming! I haven’t quite pulled the trigger on pulling out the Christmas decor and going to town. Don’t get me wrong, I already have visions of sugar plums dancing in my head, but I think I will give it a couple more weeks before I let loose.
While I haven’t exactly trimmed the tree, I have been busy nesting and thought I would share some of the updates that have taken place around the house lately.
I hadn’t touched these glass kitchen cabinets in years. And they showed it. The only thing they were collecting were clutter,
sippy cups, and randomness. So I decided to do a little rearranging and pulled in some fun silver pieces and a couple Blue Willow plates.
Of course, these cute pilgrim salt & pepper shakers that Mom gave me make their appearance every November.
I am on a mission to grow some Rosemary from my neighbors clippings so you will find these little sprigs just about everywhere. I intend to plant them in my garden this spring. But for now, they feel very “Thanksgiving” to me so I love having them around in vases and julep cups.
Here is a quick shot of the other side. Sprucing up these cabinets took about 20 minutes and they make me smile now. #goodbyeclutter #hellobluewillow
More rosemary sprigs.
Y’all. I just can’t. stop. tweaking. things around here. As much as I love the large and in charge DIY artwork that was in the foyer, I wanted to bring a mirror into this space to brighten it up. #surprisesurprise #anothermirror
We had an old black one up in the attic and I gave it a quick coat of gold with some gold rub ‘n buff. I can’t wait to layer some holiday decor in this space now!
And with that, you are caught up. Of course, I will bring you along just as soon as the holiday decor makes it appearance!
Have you been busy nesting just waiting to get your Christmas decorating on?
