Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley December 3, 2017

December greetings! Here we are approaching the end of another year. Despite the mad rush of the holidays I’m still feeling the benefit of taking it slow and keeping things simpler this year.

Yesterday I attended a matinee Christmas play then we picked out our tree and sent it into the tent to have it flocked. I’ve been flocking my tree since 2010 and I was talking to the lot attendant who told me it’s been a huge trend in recent years in lots of homes but she blamed “Pinterest”. Ha!

Today I’m finishing up the molding in my living room just in time for the arrival of the tree. I hope you’ve been enjoying your weekend as well!

When in doubt, just add a pop of red.

Ready-to-assemble cabinets that aren’t IKEA (I’m using Lily Ann in a bathroom remodel).

Sweet and simple: mini rosemary wreath garland.

Thanks Diane for this ribbon bow hack.

Funeral styling? It’s a business now.

So great, this parent’s response to his kid drawing on the wall.
