Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley December 5, 2014

Hello friends, happy weekend! It’s been raining for days and days here and we will have much more next week – welcome water for parched California and a chance to bring out the cute rain boots! We’re settling into a cozy weekend of Christmas movies and visits with friends, also partaking in a some gift shopping around town. 

I’m long overdue on a roundup of favorite links, here are some favorites from the past few weeks including this perfectly elegant blue and gold Christmas home tour.
