You are invited

So here's the new bedding that I made. I have always loved Paisley--even before it made its comeback. It is traditional, but not too feminine. Thanks again, Mom.


Also, Jane turned three, and she is seriously the most adorable three year old that I have ever seen. I often have to keep myself from eating her.

And we've had some fun family time--we recently went up the lighthouse with the kids. And we had a pretty good Thanksgiving, except that I should have made a fruit dish. Don't ever attempt to pull off a Thanksgiving dinner without a fruit dish. It just isn't the same. And Brian got to play in the annual Turkey bowl, and we put up our Christmas trees (I LOVE CHRISTMAS!)and I had my birthday. Brian built me a beautiful book case and I LOVE it. Man, I scored with Brian.

And Brian let me get myself a new side table as my Christmas present, and I love that, too. And my mother-in-law is coming to visit tomorrow, and on Friday I'm throwing "My Favorite Things" party. That's right. No selling. Just giving (although on a teensy bit smaller scale than Oprah). And guess what? You're invited! So what is your favorite thing? Stay tuned, because after my party, I'll share with you some of my favorite things!

Your trees are gorgeous!!! You need to start a designing blog and get paid tons of money to do it and have everyone want to have a link on to your blog!!!=) My favorite things are: honeysuckle room mist from Pier 1 Imports, Ghiradelli box brownies, cafe rio pork barbacoa salad, Mary kay foundation, The Office, silk scarves, Scentsy candles, chunky jewelry, cherry wood anything, I guess that is enough. Excited to see yours!

So many things to say... first, you did score with Brian. He is awesome and makes the most beautiful furniture. Second, your kids are so cute. Third, I love the trees. Fourth, the bedspread is awesome, and I wish I was like you.

um. when the freak did you learn how to sew bedding? it looks really pretty and so does your whole house and so do you.

Amy said...

Wow! Tell Brian he is amazing! First the bed, now the bookcase (with tons in between I'm sure). Can't wait till I have a house and money to pay him to build me stuff!

I want to come to your party just so that I can see your two beautifully decorated trees in person. They look exquisite in the pictures! Your party idea sounds super fun--can't wait to hear more about what you do at it. I might have to use your idea. I love the idea of a fun party w/girlfriends where no one has to buy anything but leaves w/something fun. Ingenious!
