Holiday Linky Parties

Ruh, roh…it is almost that time where I forget to breathe and sleep. I’m completely consumed and 100% overwhelmed with everything Christmas and home, home and Christmas…

These four ladies are absolutely incredible bloggers and people (well…from what I can tell from their blogs/twitter pages at least – hah!). I respect them immensely and love what they post. Their decorations for holiday? Always awesome and jaw-dropping.

I really am so excited for another year of Christmas linky parties but I can already feel my heart beating faster and my mind racing too quickly! It is a fun challenge to see what new ideas I can create and helps me to think outside of the ‘what was displayed in the Pottery Barn catalog’ box. The stupid, ugly, green jealousy monster has a tendency to rear its ugly head though when I see what other bloggers have posted. Ridiculous, I know!

I want to be better, do better and just want to be liked. In the world of home blogs and the Internet in general, this just isn’t possible. My goal this year is to enjoy doing every project, putting up every strand of lights and to just live the Christmas season. I got too consumed with this ‘stuff’ last year to have fun and relax, so this year? Mix up another hot tottie Santa, Laura is ready to play!

Design Sponge at Home

I added another item to my Christmas Wish List board on Pinterest! The Design Sponge at Home book looks so good with tons of inspiration and I would love to have this at home for reference and help with my design style.

I have seen previews for this book and the reviews all sound really great. I’ve been keeping tabs on Grace through Twitter, just hoping she’s coming to OKC for a signing! I would love to meet her and hear any advice she has for DIY and blogging.

If you already have a copy, I would love to hear your thoughts and reviews of the book! Also, if you haven’t visited the website yet, check out Design Sponge online here.

A new online magazine came out yesterday and I love it! House of Fifty is the brainchild of Janell who also runs the blog Isabella & Max Rooms. This was the premiere issue and includes some serious eye candy!

I am so in love with the white tin ceiling and glass chandelier on the right!! Gorgeous. This was my favorite section because I am definitely feeling white right now. I love the bright white, muted white and gray white.

The design of this clothing store is unreal. It doesn’t even feel like your normal retail location. The bubble lights above the cashier table are so fun! I’m now looking for a spot in our house to mimic this look.

There is even a section about fashion and they feature my favorite – sandals in all styles and colors! Bring it, warm weather.

My pantry is driving me nuts right now and this gives me some serious inspiration and ideas! You have to go online and see these pages up close. I love the jars with the chalkboard labels for dry goods and the drawers with chalkboard fronts so you can easily access entertaining good. Brillant!

After only one issue, House of Fifty is my new favorite magazine!
