Transitioning your Thanksgiving table to Christmas

November 24, 2016

Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope your enjoying and counting your blessings today.

We are over at All Things Thrifty today sharing how to pull

together a very last minute Thanksgiving table scape by raiding nature for free supplies!

She’s full of them this time of year.

Head on over to see what we started with and how we put it together.


It’s simpler than it looks!

Then come back here and see how we take the same basics and transition them into Christmas with just a few minor changes.

Head on over!  You have to see the “before”, before you see the “after”


We’ll be here for you.


Simple changes?  Yes.  Totally different look?  Yes!

Red berries replaced the orange berries.

Pinecones replaced the pumpkins in the little pots.

And pomegranates for everyone!

Our kids eat these like candy!


The basics of the arrangement remained the same.  Just a few minor changes for a complete different look.  That’s working smarter, not harder!


The greenery in the light was replaced with evergreen boughs and the same rose hip berries added.

 Ribbons on the chair wreaths were simply replaced with festive red and white striped ribbon.




Christmas time is both magical and who are we kidding,


Simplify where you can while still keeping the fun holiday decor.

Not having to completely redo the decor for each season is one way to simplify.

Just a few simple changes will take your seasonal decor from one season to the next.

Favorite Light On Sale!

November 2, 2016

Hey Guys!

We’ve been in the new house now just under a month.

We’re still bare and empty but absolutely loving it!

It was such a painful huge undertaking packing up and getting rid of the past 8 years of storage/hoarding,

that I’m going with the “less is more” theme in this house and taking my time and trying to be very thoughtful

on what comes into our home.

Plus, I think the bare bones of this place are so pretty, I think they stand pretty well on their own.

This light being the case!


She’s in our front room which remains empty with an identity crisis while we try to figure out how we want to use it.

Formal living room?, office?, formal dining?

It’s still to be determined. But until then,  this beauty takes center stage.

I love her!

She’s the perfect mix of industrial and farmhouse.


We temporarily left the chain long in case we need to lower it over a dining table.


The scale of this piece is pretty impressive.

Just thought we’d share, If you’re building or looking to upgrade a light fixture,

She’s on sale!


I shopped and shopped and shopped around for my light fixtures,

trying to find something stylish that wouldn’t break the bank.

This one fit the bill!

And now you can save $60 ($59.25 to be exact :)) off this light

by using this discount code HERE

You can find the light and all the dimensions and specs  HERE

If you’re interested in some of the other budget friendly lights we used in our home,



We shared most of our lights back HERE

Hopefully this will help someone out who may be looking for the perfect statement light piece at a good price!

It’s always a little nerve racking ordering something online

but I was super happy and impressed with this piece.

Let me know if you have any questions that aren’t answered in the link.

In the meantime,

we’ll try to get it in gear over here and share some of our sources with our new home in the next couple of weeks.
