Season’s Greetings

By Kate Riley December 25, 2016

Christmas and Hanukkah greetings! I love when both holidays occur at the same time, it feels extra special when they do. I hope you are feeling the love with all your family and friends this weekend! I wanted to share a few links from the creativity from the season, below are a few of my favorites from this holiday’s collection of fun and festive ideas.


I loved the simple greenery in this winter white home tour.

These diy mini wreaths are so easy and feel so fresh.

These holly balloon gift toppers are clever!

How cozy and cute are these yarn orbs?!

These golden holly drinking glasses look very festive.

Emily’s under the table idea is a new favorite.

What a fun way to use twinkle lights.

How gorgeous is this holiday citrus tablescape?

A very creative carton wreath.

Can’t wait to make these gingerbread pancakes on a cold winter morning.

This is a great idea for giving back.

Happy Holidays to everyone! I am so grateful to those of you who stop by this little corner of the blogosphere to follow along with my adventures. I’m excited for what the next year brings, I have two kitchen makeovers to share in January and a progress report on the Vegas flip house. I’m looking forward to sharing all about those space makeovers in 2017!

I’ll return to regular blogging on January 3rd.

Warm wishes and many blessings to you all!


2017 Wall Calendars

By Kate Riley December 22, 2016

It’s almost Christmas! There are still a few things to do around here to prepare for Santa’s arrival but we’re excited! I’m headed back to Las Vegas next week to spend time working on the flip house and I’ll be featuring a few projects from that house in January.

To stay sane I find it so helpful to stay organized in order to keep everything straight in my head. I use Google calendar and sync it to my phone for my daily appointments but I do love to have a pretty calendar to look at on my desk. Last year I rounded up some favorites and this year I hopped over to Etsy to take a peek at what’s available this year. Here are a few favorites for making your walls prettier and reminding you of the date in 2017.
