Inviting You In

I had hoped to participate in the festive Christmas Tour of Homes hosted by BooMama just like last year, but had just so much going on. It was too much added pressure. But thankfully, I am happy to say I can breathe easier today. The pressure is off. I have absolutely no commitments this entire week. No where to be. No deadlines looming. Nothing at all. And it feels so very good.

I think now I'd like to invite you in to see a few of my favorite things around my house this Christmas.

My new table runner from Tarjay. Nothing says holiday centerpiece like cheap ornaments and oranges. I think I make it work.


And now we're entering the Tour d'Eiffel section of my living room. My favorite ornament.



A song for you from the boys' favorite ornament:

And since last year I shared my holiday socks, this year I'll show you what socks I'm wearing today.





Now that's that. I am off to relax. No plans. Breathe. I think I'll finish knitting - something for me this time- a yummy scarf. Hope you have a fabulous holiday...

Love,
Steph

  9. You are just too talented. My first scarf is still 3 inches long! And I too love the display bowl full of ornaments! Mine are olive and maroon sparkly ornaments in a leopard print glass bowl. All Tar-jay of course! Oooh and if you have a moment, swing by my blog, I have news! :) Happy Holidays!

  11. Hi Stephanie,

    I'm a moderator at Work it, Mom! (http://www.workitmom.com). I have admired your website and blog for some time now. Anyway, I would like to invite you to become a member of Work it, Mom! We are an exceptional social community of women from all walks of life. We have tons of WAHMs like yourself (I happen to be one as well). One awesome thing about the website is that we allow everyone to post articles. We have no restrictions on linking, so it is a great way to pull traffic to your blog and website. I really think that we could use your fresh voice. Plus I haven't seen anyone with a babywearing business there. I think we could really use some sling action. Anyway, think it over. I hope to see you there!

  14. I love what you've done with your oranges. Seeing them juxtaposed against the Eiffel Tower reminds me randomly of the etymology of potpourri. It literally means "rotting pot." At Versailles they would put orange peels in bowls as a funky kind of air freshener. Apparently King Lou number 14 liked the smell of decomposing citrus.
