It’s a new year and that means new trends! Styles always shift and it’s hard to stay on top of what is “hot” and what is “not,” but have no fear, I’m here to help! I love watching how the home design trends are going, especially seeing what is going on in pinterest/internet land vs. what people are REALLY doing in their homes. It’s an interesting mix, for sure.

AN OPEN LETTER TO SANTA
Merry Christmas! I hope this letter finds you well and that you have had a spectacular year. I’m sure you have been diligently getting ready for your busy season. The amount of homes you visit every year to bring joy to children is nothing short of amazing! With that being said, I just want to lay out a few ground rules for your visit this year, so that we are all still merry when Christmas is over.

I want something green and lively and less “plastic-y.” Then, it hit me. We are lucky that we live in East Texas. Why? Well, that is a very long-winded novel full of reasons that I will save for another day! One of them, however, is that there are FREE Christmas decorations everywhere! Whoohoo! I don’t know about you, but free is my kind of price!
Christmas decorations are typically composed of evergreen foliage, pine cones and berries. Well aren’t we East Texans in luck! Take a look around you, because we have it all, everywhere you look! Continue reading
