Thanksgiving Tablescapes

Tomorrow I will be thinking about the friends and family back home and how I'll be missing them like crazy! Growing up, my family traveled to Arkansas for the family gathering (50+ immediate family...I did say Arkansas). Early mass in the morning and then back to Grandmas to begin the preparation for the feast. I have the best memories. To many of us to fit in the house, so some eat inside and the rest eat on fold out tables in the garage and the spread is served on the deep freeze. Cherish those times.

I am excited for the invitation to eat Thanksgiving dinner here with some new friends we have made. And at night, let the games begin as we get to experience for the first time, the Burton Bake-off, which is known to be very competitive.

On another note, a big family meal allows the excuse to create an amazing tablescape for your guests. It's time to break out the good china, light some candles and set the mood!

Cheers! Have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!

Rue Mag Issue 2!

I absolutely adore Rue Magazine! The girls that have the vision for this online magazine are taking design to a whole new level. The only complaint that I have is that it only is every other month! I look forward to their third issue in January as I'm sure it will blow away anyone with any interest in design.

The magazine is filled with so much inspiration but the feature that took my breath away was on the amazing, Seattle-based event planner, Kelley Moore. They featured several pics of her office space and it is absolutely unreal what she did with a repurposed factory. I would never want to leave work if I had an office like this.

Here are some pics! Check out the new issue of RueMag! And check out more of the wonderful things Kelley Moore is doing!

New Space = New Decor

Although most of my posts are just dreams of visions I have or some inspirations I've found there are some things I'm slowly going to be purchasing (unless my style changes) for the new place we just moved to last week. Last week was a crazy week. After spending five days in Kansas City, Jonathan and I got back into town on Sunday night and had 48 hours to pack our 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment and move to a 1 bedroom/1 bathroom apartment in another part of the city. Somehow we managed to do it...not necessarily the most organized move, but with the help of several friends we are now in our new home that I hope is our home for the next 18 months (we are sick and tired of moving). My eye has been wandering towards organic/modern/earthy

Or I would definitely take this one from Zgallerie :) P.S. Go to! Now through November 15th there is 10% off furniture and 20% off all accessories! Amazing! Can't wait to get the Deer head!

Start of my Christmas List...

With working at Nordstrom, the holiday/Christmas talk has been going on since September. I have tried to put of my list but I can't wait any longer. The first item I am asking for is this amazing faux fur throw from West Elm in Lt. Gray.
