Holiday Highlights #2


First, I just want to say thank you to these special friends: Layla, Tricia, Heidi, PK, Karen and Cheri. And thank you to all of my friends for your votes. Never underestimate the power of internet friends and friends and family in real life. I treasure each one. Speaking of being thankful, I wanted to include some Thanksgiving in this weeks’ DIY Holiday Highlights.

I personally don’t have much Thanksgiving to share since we have a lot going on and we’re not hosting this year, but I‘ve been working on a garland so I love this one from Remodelaholic. So festive and perfect for Thanksgiving, isn’t it? There is also a week long Thanksgiving series in progress. Check it out!

after being inspired by:


am working on some things for Christmas (none of which are finished because I’m still dealing with painting a floor that can’t seem to make it to the top of the priority list). Patience is not one of my strengths. It’s not in the budget to change all of my holiday decor just yet, but I’m loving natural elements like pine/grapevine/moss/pinecones/natural fibers mixed with white and silver/bronze/gold metallics.

Daily begging, I mean reminder – for daily votes. Thank you! 🙂
