Garnet Hill: A Stocking for Your Stuff

Well, Thanksgiving is officially over and the holiday season has begun. This is one of my favorite times of year when we get to curl up by the fire with a good book and hot chocolate and not feel guilty for laying low. And I love Christmas decorations, especially stockings. I was looking for a new stocking for our little peanut who is quickly on her way. I found these online at Garnet Hill and instantly loved them! One of the more important criteria in my book is the size. None of this wimpy stocking size - you need to be able to pack them full! I also like the heirloom quality they have. I got the one with the ruffles since I know this little one will be a girl and then I ordered one more in the snowflake pattern for peanut #2 in the future.

Happy Holidays!


Phillip Jefferies Wallpaper

Bringing natural textures in your home always has a soothing and comforting effect. At least for me. I love any sort of natural wallpaper to bring the nature element inside, but what it also unexpectedly brings is a modern feel...with the right pairing of furniture and accessories of course!

We are putting this Japanese paperweave palm paper from Phillip Jefferies (a wholesale wallpaper company) up in the nursery to bring some warmth to the room. It is only going up on about the top three feet of the walls, but just that amount makes the room cozy. The bottom five feet of the walls are wrapped in white shaker style wallboard. Phillip Jefferies has some beautiful wallpapers to check out. Even if it's just an accent wall, these papers can make a huge difference in a room. We put some grasscloth wallpaper in our loft area so when you look up from the entry way you can see the textured wall.


Etsy: The Place for Pillows

This is the first time I have purchased something from Etsy and I have to say I am hooked. I found these pillows from White Butterfly Studio on Etsy and they just arrived today. The craftsmanship is impeccable and the customer service and price was just as good. I also love the other items listed under White Butterfly. These two pillows are going to look perfect in the nursery!

I encourage you to check out other pillows on Etsy. You can find some unique and beautiful items! Especially applique which I just love.
