It's begining to look a little like Christmas....Finally!

It has been a busy hectic few weeks. And I have been neglecting my blog, so I thought it was time for some "Holiday Catch Up".

I don't even know where to start....

Nostalgic Summer is looking to the new year already. I've been designing some new pieces for the coming year (just in time for Valentines Day). I know it's not even Christmas yet, but look for a preview in a few weeks.

Also I have been brainstorming some new blog series ideas and will start them in January. I have two fun ideas that I hope everyone will enjoy.

Now back to Christmas.....It is getting crazy here, I just found out TWO days ago I will be hosting our annual family Christmas Eve party. It is a casual fun event, about 30 people, with everyone bringing food, but I haven't even put up the tree yet!

So today I am starting a three day a whirlwind decorating event! Here are a few of the in process photos.
Front entry before:


The stockings are hung, but the fireplace is not decorated. And this is a before picture of the dining room.

I gotta go...but I will update with some final decorating pictures on Saturday. And maybe a Christmas party update after Christmas!

"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Soon the bells will start
And the thing that will make them ring
Is the Carol that you sing
Right within your heart, right within your heart"

Merry Christmas!


  1. Love the color-blocked vases! Have a wonderful holiday season!

  2. Thank you Shauna. These are a collection of vintage ornaments. I used to decorate a small tree in the entry with them...but feel they look updated in the vases. Have a Happy Holiday! :-)

  3. Lovely colors! Happy Holiday season to you Renee! Looking forward to the new year as well.
