I have been beginning to shop a little bit for the holidays and am getting excited about all the pretty things out there. Here are some of the things I’ve got my eye on.
A. Whenever I see a good Clutch-style bag I always buy it because when you actually need them they are so hard to find. This one is perfect. B. I love this coat is a little cape-y and that high neck is amazing. C. I’ve had my eye on this necklace and it is going on my Christmas list for sure. D. Shiny shoes that act like nuetrals. E. I’ve been looking for a new iphone case and THIS ONE is my favorite. F. I ordered a couple of these light fixtures after seeing this new-to-me brand on Joanna Goddard’s house makeover. I love the brass and the black together!! G. I started a collection of Mud Australia dishes and have been dreaming about growing my collection.

Things are slowly coming together at our new studio and I can’t wait to share pictures soon. We’ve been busy, so it’s definitely a work in progress – but one of the first things we put up was our inspiration wall. There’s something special about collecting beautiful images and physically hanging them around our creative space. It helps to set the mood for our brainstorming meetings and brings so much color into the studio! Some of these inspirational images come from magazines or ads, but we also find some online. We used our Canon PIXMA Printer that connects right to our social networks and to our files on the cloud. It’s wireless, so it’s super easy to print beautiful images as we find them. I also like to add 3-D elements like beautiful objects and feathers I find. How do you incorporate inspiration into your home office?

Hosting Thanksgiving this year? I am making my grandma’s cherry pie, and bringing a bit of nature inside. Using leaves from your yard for place settings, and garland, is such a great idea! I like keeping the decor simple, so I can focus on the turkey!
