Inspired by Macy's Black Friday Gift Guide

This is a sponsored post.
Welcome everyone! I am so super excited to be partnering with Macy's this holiday season!
Between now and Christmas I will be sharing some of my absolute fave gift ideas with you all.
And, with holiday parties gearing up I thought it would be a great idea to share some perfect hostess gift options.

 By the way, if you know me, you know I am dying for the gold place settings and gold leaf serveware! Oh how they would look amazing on my holiday table!!!
Happy shopping!

Holiday Ready House with Libman

*I was compensated for this post with supplies, however all content, thoughts and opinions are my own.
Full disclosure: my house is a complete disaster at the moment. I have a cat who sheds despite the freezing weather, two almost teen boys and a kitchen reno underway. Literally, there is not a day where my home is sparkling and presentable. It's dusty, messy and in need of a constant cleaning.

Christmas Decorating with Balsam Hill

 Hey everyone! This is traditionally a bit early for me to start chatting about Christmas, but I am taking part in some truly fantastic home tours and collaborations this season and so I could not wait to get a jump on it.
I was super fortunate to be gifted some wonderful holiday décor from Balsam Hill, and, I have to say, I am truly in love with the quality!
The first thing I picked was a gorgeous and realistic looking lighted, potted tree.

Modern Acorn Garland

Forgive my complete lateness in posting today, everyone!
I have just a ridiculous amount on my plate right now with a kitchen reno that needs to be completed quickly and finalizing plans to sell my home. (Yup, that's right. Number Fifty-Three will be on the move soon and I am so excited to start this next chapter in my life!)
Anyway, I had one final autumn post that I wanted to share with you all before I go all Christmas on you (which will begin tomorrow, btw).
I love using natural elements in my decor, but sometimes that can get a bit rustic. This garland is made of the tops of acorns, but has a totally modern vibe.

Primitive Autumn Home Tour

Morning everyone! I've been swamped with deadlines, both blog and custom painting orders, which tends to get a tad overwhelming, but I have to say, I made some amazing headway this past weekend which, is starting, to put my mind at ease.
One thing I checked off my list was to photograph my Mom's primitive autumn home. Her home tours are always a huge hit here and this year is especially pretty and inventive.

Blogger Stylin' Home Tours: Thanksgiving Table

You know what two things I completely love?
Autumn (and yes, I realize I've told you all this like a million times already, just go with it) and participating in the Blogger Stylin' Home Tour series.
The talent is seriously insanely inspiring!
