Happy Thanksgiving!

Today, we're celebrating here in Kansas City with G's family and a handful of our best friends. I'm hosting the big dinner for the first time EVAH, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly!

Tonight after dark we'll be walking down to the Plaza (with hot cocoa in hand!) to watch the Plaza Lighting Ceremony... the switch will be flipped by SNL cast member and Kansas City native, Jason Sadeikis - we're huge SNL fans so we're geeking out about it!

I hope that you have a wonderful day, and I am so thankful for you!

I've got to pop in to show you...

The most ADORABLE repurposed vintage bags that are decorated with love and care by my friend, Katherine from Making Chicken Salad (this is one to be added to your reader for SURE).

Check out her other online shops here and here!

Checking In

Always love her outfit posts... I WILL be recreating this one. Trust.

It feels as though I've been running a little low on thoughts to share with you these last few weeks. Have you noticed?

Work has become quite a bit busier than it's ever been, and I think that has a little something to do with it. I'm still enjoying life and searching for lucky stones and crocheting granny squares and altering thrifted treasures and hosting parties and snuggling with the animals (and G), but for some reason documenting every little thing has not been as high on my priority list (however, you... you are still very high on the list).

I'm hoping that with the new holiday season will come lots of new inspiration and the desire to post more, but I can't make any guarantees. I am still posting over there, should you miss me too terribly (although something tells me you'll be just fine), and I promise I'm still checking in on my favorite reads from time to time.

Persian Carpet

Would you like to see the little (ok, big) pretty that I "accidentally" won on eBay the other night?

(What? It happens!)

It's a whopping 9' x 6' and I am so excited to see it in person... should be winging it's way to us RIGHT now.

I think it'll make a lovely replacement/addition to our family room, and I can't wait to put it in place!

Casa de emmy-ray

My sweet friend Emily recently did a major makeover on her home's exterior, and it's so amazing that I just have to share it here.



Holy moly, could you not just FLIP for that color combo!?!? And the bright white trim??? I just can't get over it. Bravo, Em!

***Emily also is an INCREDIBLE jewelry and floral designer and has amazing style. :)

Charley Harper

Just popped over to How About Orange and was happy to follow the link she shared to several gorgeous high res files of some Charley Harper prints.

I already have so many prints at home needing to be framed, so I'm hesitant to have these printed, but I just love them so very much!
Maybe I will be more motivated if I tell myself that they could be used as lovely Christmas decorations... I am so excited to start on Holiday decorating, and I keep having to remind myself that Thanksgiving comes first!!!

Feeling Quiet

Via Audrey Hepburn Complex

Not sure how long it will last, but please don't go away for good.

Momma's got a new set of keys...

G gave me a VERY sweet gift yesterday (THANKS, HONEY), and it is currently at the Apple Store getting loaded with all of the goodies from my old computer.

In the meantime, BIRTHDAY WEEK!!!! WOOHOO!

I'll be back online as soon as my little buddies come home!

...Is my birthday and I have a feeling it's going to be one of those prettysparklyandmagical kind of days.

Wanna know something else pretty and magical? My sweet friend Gina's birthday is today, too. We go together like... PB&J? No, more like vintage frocks and good red wine (they DO go together, TRUST). She's basically my very own real-life SJP... and having her as a friend (and major style inspiration) is a birthday present in itself.

I love you, Gigi. I hope you have a great day, I'm so glad we're birthday buddies, and I can't wait to celebrate with you!

Too Cute

I pretty much freaked out when I saw this little guy on Design Dig.

I'm always hoping to come across some local little cuties so I can photograph them for TCC... love taking pictures of fashionable kiddos!
