Weekend Reading 11.1.20

By Kate Riley November 1, 2020

Hi friends, how are you feeling today? I didn’t celebrate Halloween this year, I just couldn’t get in the mood. The holidays are trickier this season with limited gatherings, but I woke up excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I hope this slower pace we’ve all adapted to continues. I plan to keep the next two months as simple as possible with minimal (but festive!) projects and decorations.

I’m moving my office furniture today so my desk faces the window because there is less natural light during winter. I think I’ll hang twinkle lights too so when I work in the evenings I can enjoy their glow. Are you making plans for a different kind of holiday season? I’d love to read how your adapting to these unusual times. :)

Favorite links from the week:

Calm Christmas decorations like this home tour feel right this year.

Well done: this black + white galley kitchen renovation.

If you like a lot of natural wood, you’ll love this minimalist home in Toronto.

So many great before and afters in this cabin tour.

20 farmhouse kitchen style ideas.

This dashboard garden is cool, but I don’t think I could keep it alive!

This is the prettiest dried flower project.

If your grandparents are from these European countries, you could become a citizen too.

Funny: cliché travel photos redone 2020 style.



  1. Ha ha those travel photos 2020 style sure were funny & creative!
    Thanks for linking those up.

  2. Fun links to look through!
    As for my holiday plans, I am kind of feeling so bummed about this year. It is really wearing on me. I doubt we will have anyone over since the indoor gatherings are not recommended, and my kids are already out of the house and everyone wants to be cautious, so we won’t be eating a meal together. It feels sad to me. I don’t even know if I want to decorate at all this year. I will see how I feel as it gets closer. :(
