With the hectic couple of months I’ve had by far, the only thing on my mind is a getaway, so I suggest we all pack our stuff and head for a winter adventure – a getaway where we get to stay in a cabin, where there is a warm fireplace, fur all around, hot cocoa, stacks of magazines and books and all the other things your heart falls for :). I for one feel totally mesmerized by the beauty of the nature when I’m in the middle of the wilderness during the winter, so there’s not much I need besides that, but I won’t refuse all of the above. And to make it complete, here’s the visual treat of this post:
Don’t know how about you, guys, but I think Christmas tree hunting is just as exciting as Christmas tree decorating is! It’s some sort of ritual that helps us get in the holiday mood and it definitely can be fun and memorable especially when you share it with loved ones. That’s why the pictures I came across recently were just too cute to be ignored!
P.S. How does tree hunting look in your family? Do you all get involved?
The holidays are just around the corner therefore it’s the perfect time to look for pretty paper goodies and get busy with sending Christmas cards (are you sending them this year, by the way?). I find handwritten cards ridiculously darling and timeless – better than any gift! And I fell for the goodies offered by Darling Clementine (I bet you know them, right?) – real heartmelters! They have cards, notebooks, trays, pillows and everything looks gorgeous! Take a look, you might get an idea or two :)
It slipped my mind yesterday to welcome you to December (really? is 2011 almost done?). I still can’t believe it, but oh well – one thing is clear – the holiday season is here! Just like I say every year, this is my favorite time of the year and I look forward to setting up the tree, to be snowed in and to enjoy this magical time.
What are you looking forward to? Time with the family? Presents? Perhaps writing down resolutions for 2012?
Have a wonderful weekend, sweets!

Can I just say Thom Filicia is my new interior design idol? The man is a genius and I’m amazed by his decorating style, aesthetics and the subtle charm of every inch he’s designed. From modern to eclectic to traditionalism Thom Filicia manages to inspire us with down-to-earth designs which feel very livable, not too sophisticated and definitely swoon-worthy. I know if I had to choose who may design my home (a girl can dream), Thom would be on the top of my list!
There’s not much to add to this post but a bunch of glittery images to cheer you up and to remind you that we all need some sparkle in our lives every once in a while. So I’m embracing the famous (slightly altered) Keep calm slogan and am wishing you a lovely week!
Hello, loves! It’s Friday, can you believe it? This sure was a tough week all around, so I’m glad I’ll get some time to properly breath the upcoming two days. Although I do have some plans, I’ll allow myself to sleep in, be lazy, read a few chapters of the book I started months ago without getting the chance to finish it, watch a movie, drink tea and many more things like that, because you know – life is all about small details that make us happy.
What are you doing this weekend?
With the cold days upon us the only thing I want to do is cuddle up under a blanket; going out is the last on that list (unless is not raining and the air is crispy). But lately I find myself daydreaming about dining al-fresco, surrounded by all the gorgeous fall colors and scents, by a fire with a dear group of people. Oh and some delicious food is involved in my daydreaming – the thought itself makes me hungry :).
By the way, this post is a great inspiration for a Thanksgiving table setting – what are you up to this year? Staying indoors or going al-fresco?
If you still didn’t hear about Leslie Shewring then you must be living on another Planet. Leslie is the famous color columnist on decor8 whose posts we breathlessly await every month, Leslie is an amazing artist and photographer, Leslie is the creative person behind this visual delight – A Creative Mint (which is a gem of a blog, by the way!). There is really no need to explain who is Leslie, right? She’s THE blogger we must know and look up to :). One thing I love about her blog is how well categorized are her posts, it’s so easy to browse when you have them organized by colors! Here are some of the too many pictures I wanted to share with you:
