i finally had a chance to visit terrain last week, and it was nothing short of amazing. christmas greens and berries and garlands and found objects and candles and soaps and spices and ornaments and any kind of cute gifty object you can imagine. i think this might be the best time of year to visit… of course, i might be biased.  i will have to return in the spring! and, you MUST go if you have the chance.

as if on cue...

christmas catalogs

these were tucked in our mailbox this week. glossy pages of holiday cheer - what could be better? i mentioned last year that i like to take decorating and diy inspiration away from the catalog pages packed with too-expensive items. last night, as we watched election results roll in, i sat by the fire with a pad + pen and jotted a stream of ideas. i am so excited to get going on some crafts. i think i'll make a trip to the dollar store this afternoon to begin stocking up.

seasonal inspiration from pottery barn

constantly inspired by the beauty that is pottery barn. so easy breezy, light and bright. a source of inspiration for every season. the latest spring/summer catalogs have me wanting to throw open the windows to welcome a warm breeze, entertain outdoors with sparkling lanterns and garden-fresh produce, relax on the porch with a freshly-squeezed lemonade, and curl up under the stars with an heirloom quilt.

enjoy cupcakes!

after an extremely gloomy, wet weekend here in the mid-atlantic, i am in need of something bright and lovely. over the weekend i happened upon enjoy cupcakes, the most darling little thing.

this family business started last april in the los olivos, califorina wine tasting lounge saarloos and sons. amber vander vliet features various flavors each week, always including 2 wine infused flavors. the signature aspect of their business- and amber's favorite- is the restored vintage trailer that the couple purchased on ebay. they are able to cater all types of events, including wedding, corporate, showers, birthdays, etc. i am so inspired by amber and the way she followed her dreams.
