So I know this one is a little behind the eight ball for Christmas but I got a little swamped pre-Christmas. I really wanted to share because I love this little project. So maybe a little late but I think its worth the wait.
When I decided I wanted to create a Kate Spade Live Colorfully inspired Christmas, I knew… Continue reading
Its been busy around here. Serar’s Christmas party was this last weekend. Making candy for presents with lots and lots of unusual mishaps. My mom’s house finally closed (that’s a story for the record books and perhaps a future post…ugh!) Just to name a few. But we have also been finishing some last minute details to make Kate… Continue reading
It is no secret that I love Christmas. And each year, I try to do something a little different. One constant has always been that I wanted my trees and my decorations to look like I hope my house does throughout the year – designed by a designer. Professional in other words. Professional. Designer. These words bring to… Continue reading
I saw this amazingly simple card holder last year on. Sadly, I don’t remember where but it did make an impression on me. And when I decided I wanted to do a Kate Spade inspired Christmas, specifically her Live Colorfully line, I knew exactly what I want to do using it as the base design for a Kate Spade Inspired… Continue reading
And the Kate Spade Christmas décor continues! When I decided I was embracing my inner Kate Spade and decorating with the Live Colorfully in mind, the very first project on my to do list was an ornament wreath. I mean really, you can’t get more colorful than a wreath filled with ornaments of all different sizes, colors and textures.
There… Continue reading
Perhaps it should say cheese? In this family we leave wine and cheese for Santa. What can I say, Santa needs a break from all that sugar and lactose. But tradition states Santa gets cookies. So you can’t have Christmas without a cookie plate, right?
With my Kate Spade inspired Christmas, that left me with a couple of options. Dots… Continue reading
Oh my Kate Spade obsession. Let it get fuller and richer and completely robust! Bring on the purses, the wallets, the cellphone covers, the whimsical jewelry and awesome clutches (so off subject but she has the cutest champagne bottle clutch for the holidays…I have absolutely no where to use this awesome clutch but oh how I want one!). And… Continue reading
So I am obsessed with Kate Spade right now…massively obsessed! I have purses, watches, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, iPad covers, phone covers and more of hers (nothing retail of course because that would violate my budget savvy, deal and steal hunting core inner diva). Its a mix of the combination of bold colors, the unapologetic use of bold graphics… Continue reading
With my adventures in upholstery starring the channel back yard sale find chair all done and over, it was more than time to focus my efforts elsewhere in our living room remodel. The wingback that my mother had been assisting on had stalled since our last class, so perhaps it was time I took a… Continue reading
My living room makeover is a slow but steady process. Its a complete overhaul with built-ins being added, a fireplace wall instillation, painting cathedral ceilings, crafting new curtains, reupholstering chairs, and refinishing tables. Between the list of projects and the cost of projects, we are in it for the long haul. And for this next step in the remodel, I… Continue reading
