How can it be Friday already? This week flew by… I guess it was because I returned home from a trip last Sunday and have been trying to play catch-up all week. I am just about caught up.
I have a dentist appointment this morning, but when I return, I have one more item to cross off my week’s to-do list and that is to get all my Christmas decorating bins out from the attic, then I will call it a week. :-)
Over the weekend, I will be getting the pantry makeover closer to completion. So far we have the new door installed and I have bought all the supplies I will need to transform the small closet into a highly organized pantry.
For now though… to close the work week, I thought I would share a few things that interested me, I bought, or inspired me lately plus the last item on the list is a giveaway that is just in time for the upcoming hosting and toasting season.
It’s a casual Friday kind of post. Here it goes…
If you are a daily planner lover like me and are looking for a new planner for 2018, check out the 2018 planner reviews Amber is posting over at Damask Love. She is reviewing 8 popular planners with photos and videos so you can see the planners up close and personal.
I always enjoy when I find creative and money saving decorating ideas. This tile hack is pretty ingenious.
I caved… and bought this when I told myself I was simply going to “just take a look”. :-) It smells just the way I want my house to smell over the holidays.
If you are not 6 feet tall and a size 6, but want your jeans to look fitted, in style, and under $40, I think I have a pair for you. I really, really like these jeans. 2 weeks ago I bought a pair in the color, Starry. They fit so well, my curves and all! I ordered another pair in a lighter color called, Calico.
I love this Thanksgiving table setting idea using a piece of ribbon and mini pumpkin for each place setting. Jennifer over at Celebrating Everyday Life created it for a blue and white table setting. To create it yourself… gently fold a wide ribbon back and forth on the plate and snip the ends in a “V” shape, then place a mini pumpkin on top. Easy and it looks fabulous! The best kind of DIY. If you are looking for table setting ideas, she has many great entertaining and inspiring ideas on her blog that are worth checking out.
And speaking of Thanksgiving, as we enter the season of hosting & toasting…
…this little gem of a book entitled, Ladies Who Drink will help you entertain in style over the holidays and beyond.
It is filled with light-bite food pairing recipes and entertaining ideas perfect for just about any occasion. I want to try this Five Minute Chocolate Cake recipe. Did you notice it serves only 1 and only takes 5 minutes? Perfect for when you need a little something sweet and don’t want to make a whole cake.
I have one copy of the book to give away!
Congratulations to the Book Winner: Suzanne Sullivan
Happy weekend… It’ s going to be a chilly one here…
YAY! It finally feels like fall in every way.
