FAVOURITE ROOM I love how cosy our lounge looks at night! 💡 This year will be our first Christmas with our new oak floor! 🎅I can't wait to see how it looks all decorated up!🎄Hopefully we'll be able to get the decorations out before Christmas Eve this year 🤔 the last couple of years have been a bit manic 🛍 the room has been full of boxes 📦 and the table has been our packing area 🛍 we are trying hard to keep this room a work free zone at the moment! 🎅I wonder how successful that will be! 😌 That's the plan at any rate! 😊 Happy Hump Day folks! 🐫.
Day 13 - Favourite Room #myhousethismonth@littlehouseinlondon@__itslucy__@jonpaulclark@joalexanderhomeandgarden#postitandsmile@sissinghurstlocationhouse
🍁Happy Saturday!! Well.....here’s one last look at my fireplace filled with pumpkins! I have to admit I’m a wee-bit sad to see them go....they’ll probably find a home on our front porch until after Thanksgiving! BUT, starting Monday.....this scene will change as I begin the process of “dressing” my home for the Holidays! 🎄 .
🎄In stories yesterday.....I told y’all I was heading to my first Christmas appointment of the season. (As “The House Dresser” I go into clients homes & DRESS their home for the season for them by using their own decorations , style, etc.) So, today in stories I will share pics of the tree I did yesterday! That got me even more ready to do my own!! 👏🏻👏🏻 Have you already started decorating for Christmas?! .
It was a big week at Fiddleheadquarters!! First, we had a very productive trip to Naples for our condo project and then we came home to the exciting news that we received two first place ASID awards for our Wayzata build. Huge shout out to our partners @hendelhomes@ronbrennerarchitects for an amazing collaboration. It’s an honor to work in this design community ❤️
This is last year’s Thanksgiving table. While we won’t be hosting this year, we do have a couple smaller dinners planned. I may go a different route and pull in some more blue. Do you use traditional fall colors or do you go with something a bit different? #diningroom#thanksgivingtable#classicdecor#mytradhome

This is the last time I’ll feature my lovely vintage Hall Tree all dressed-up for Fall! 🍂 I have so many ideas in my head for this beauty for the Christmas season! I can hardly wait.....Just a few more days! 👏🏻👏🏻 So, be sure to stay tuned! 🎄
. 🍁I just want to say WELCOME to so many new followers this week! I am so THANKFUL to have y’all here & I’m humbled that you have chosen to follow along with my little squares! I pray you all have a blessed weekend! .
Ta da! The @oneroomchallenge media room (TV end) is a wrap! And the post that shares all the details is on the blog.
And I gotta tell ya, This room is the very definition of the word compromise.
I wanted a stylish family room. The guys wanted a full-on theater room (yes.. with bucket seats 🤦🏻♀️) and mega surround sound.
To make the space work for everybody, we had to find common ground.
And so “hiding in plain sight” became the theme.
This.... along with “how many DIYs can a DIYer do?” 💁🏻♀️
Happy Thursday and congrats to all the faithful renovation warriors in the Fall #orc ..

I’ve been seeing tartan gift wrap all over the place this year and it got the crafty side of my mind going. I started to think of all of the cool things that I could make with all of the plaid goodness. I’m posting here the results of my mad-for-plaid afternoon. The first picture shows a covered box that I turned into a stationary station, with a tartan covered notebook tucked in. In the second photo, I wrapped photo mats in tartan paper to make some pictures holiday ready. In the next, I glued the wrap to card stock, cut it out & laminated it to make a bookmark. I found that Amazon has a great set of tartan wrap available and I also saw some great ones at Walmart & Home Goods. Have fun! #tartan#madforplaid#plaid#crafty#plaidcrafts#traditionalstyle#plaidcrafts#mytraditionalhome
I told myself that I wouldn't start decorating for Christmas until I completed some unfinished projects. That only lasted three days 😂 I bought a slim tree for the play room today and that set off a Christmas bomb on my home. I have no regrets though because seeing my little guy's excitement as I pulled out all the decorations makes it all worth it. The projects can wait! What are you up to today?
I don’t know about you but I’m starting to get that little itch to dig into holiday decorating.
Do you like to see holiday decor early for inspo? (Last night my husband was looking for a good song on the radio....landed on Christmas music! That was too soon for me!) Have I told you the story of this funny tree?
Last year, with one recovering ankle and one ankle waiting for surgery (yes, we can all agree we were a mess!) we just could not haul up the artificial trees.
We both love a live tree, so we didn’t mind! Except... we might have waited too long to go get the second tree.
Our usual place...sold out!
Second stop a local tree farm...already close for the season!
The elderly owner came out to tell us she had ONE tree left.
Immediately here’s our reactions:
Dan: thank God. We can buy it and be done.
Annette: oh good lord, it’s literally the tree NOBODY else wanted!
Owner of the tree farm: I’m so happy this tree will have a home to go to. I didn’t like to think nobody would love it.
Well Geesh...how could I not take it after that?! And if you looked up Charlie Brown tree...well this one was it!
But hey...this just goes to show you the wonders of LOTS of lights and big ornaments to fill in some of those gaps! 😂
Buy trees earlier!
Every tree needs someone to love it!
“Wait. Can I bring all the @thiessenflowers in the whole house into the kitchen to get a shot?!”, said moi. (Totally blogger flower fantasy come to life😍) ✨✨Also, shut the front door!!! so crazy- our kitchen cabinet install starts today on the lakehouse reno whaaaaaa! I’ll get some sneak peeks after school!!!!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 #colourfulkitchenrenovation 📸 @carriejphotographer

When I saw these pillows at a local consignment store I knew I had to buy all three and couldn’t leave one behind ... they fit right in here on my bed 💗

Autumn is about awakening the senses to familiar scents, colors, sounds and textures that create the coziness I just love ♡
Chunky throws, bowls full of crisp apples, spicy candles and yellow sunflowers quietly announce that change is in the air🌻
What do you like to use to announce the arrival of autumn?
Weekend vibes witches! We are having beautiful fall weather and the boys are on fall break this week! It felt so nice to sleep in this morning. This is the weekend that I let my little MONSTERS take over the front porch💀🎃 👻 . It’s about to get spooky up in here!
What are you up to this weekend?
