beauty + inspiration {and a huge announcement}


I thought I'd share with you all some of my favorites from the week. I made the wool ruffle wreath above using a military issue blanket that my dad gave to me {I checked and he was totally okay with me using it for this purpose - thanks Dad!}  The tutorial was from Emily.  You can find it here.

I took this photo of Reid as he was reading some of the gratitude tags that have been coming in.  After I made the Gratitude Garland last week, I sent the tags to all of our family members.  I included a return envelope addressed to Reid and he has been checking the mail, reading them and helping me attach them to our Garland as they come in.  It's been fun, and I think {and hope} he is beginning to grasp the concept of being thankful.


This cheery golden yellow is one of my favorite colors right now {especially when it's mixed with black and white}.  I picked up this lotion on our last trip to Catalina and I am totally addicted to it.  Mark and Reid say it smells like Trix cereal.  Love it.

The fun pillow is from Target.  I haven't quite figured out where to put it yet, so for now it's been hanging out in an empty chair in the dining room.  It's so cheery and fun.  I am totally on board with the fabric rosette trend, especially in fun colors.

I bought these boots at Macy's a few weeks ago at the shop for a cause event.  I have to stop myself from wearing them every single day because that's how much I love them.

Okay, are you ready for my huge announcement? I have been trying to think of something fun and out of the box to do for Black Friday and after some brainstorming...

I have decided that for every order placed this Friday, I will include one of our new Taylor necklaces for FREE!!  Yippee!  There is no minimum to spend {that means you can buy a Taylor for $22 and get a second one for free!}.  There is also no per person limit so you can come back and make as many purchases as you like and for each separate order,  I will add a Taylor to it at no charge.  It's a great way to stock up on the gifts you need to buy, maybe even get something for yourself while you're at it and save a bunch of cash!


This promotion will start at Midnight {Eastern} on Friday 11/26 and will run until Saturday at Midnight {Pacific}.  That's 27 hours to take advantage of the promo!! 

PS You don't need to add the free Taylor to your cart.  They will automatically be added to every order.  Just make sure you let me know which initial you'd like in the notes section of your order when you checkout.
