Merry Christmas

Feliz Navidad

Happy Hanukkah

Seasons Greetings


No matter how you say it, I hope it’s a day spent with a loved one or two.

We will be baking cookies, cupcakes, having our traditional family brunch and making homemade pizzas for dinner (half veggie, half meat).

I will be back next week with more home decor and some new, healthy recipes to jump start the New Year.  In the meantime keep drinking your warm lemon water in the morning!

Christmas is my favorite time of year to be creative. Here are a few photos of how I like to decorate for the Holidays.

My vintage Santas and bottle brush trees always go in the foyer. And don’t forget, the back of your front door needs a little cheer, too.


A few of my favorite vintage ornaments.

Our tree has approximately 3,000 lights.  It keeps you warm when you stand next to it!

The front stairs.


Flowers are a must, no matter what the holiday.

A boxwood wreath adorns my favorite vintage mirror.

I am not very “crafty” but wanted to try the chalkboard design.  My mom and I found the huge antique frame while out shopping.

Two of my vintage Santas.

And of course our precious Riley completes the picture.

Remember to pick up the latest issue of Romantic Homes Magazine and check out my new column called “Details”.  I would love to hear feedback from you!

May your days be merry and bright.
