Time for a sit......☕️ still waiting for this rug to dry properly before I can move all the furniture back. Just taking twice as long with this lovely rain!
Might even light this new raw gorgeousness @nordik__ candle. 🙌🏼 🕯 there’s just no stopping me today! 🤣☕️
It’s Tuesday and time for school, we have some ratty girls today 😫 because they were mucking about last night and they are tired now. Off the school they go 🙌🏻
Day 16 of @myhousethismonth #lookup imagine sleeping in this sparkly canape - why on earth would you not sleep? 🤔
I’m so excited to share this beautiful design for a reading nook featuring my painting “Bright Dabs Of Grace.” It was created by my sweet insta-friend Laurin founder of @cambridge_row a full-service design firm in The Woodlands, Texas specializing in renovations, new builds and renderings. (Her kitchen designs are especially amazing btw. So elegant!) I hope you check out her beautiful work and follow along. (Ya know, I’ve always wanted a reading nook. I’m wondering if my husband would have a problem if I convert his office into one. 🤔🤫😂) The painting is available through link in profile.
Fall...in your mouth. Well, fall in my mouth...over and over again. Pumpkin cream cheese loaf. Need I say more? It is sooo good. With coffee, with tea, with a cup of water, whatever. This will be my go to fall thing fo’ life. Here’s the recipe I worked off of bc we all know I can’t not alter a recipe. https://homemadehooplah.com/cream-cheese-filled-pumpkin-bread/ Here are my changes- I doubled the “cheesecake” recipe and added pecans to the loaf, which allowed me to layer some pumpkin batter, sprinkle pecans, then do some cheesecake batter and repeat until I ended with pumpkin batter and pecans. I used the same size pan as indicated but put a piece of aluminum foil underneath my pan for any oopsies since I added more to the mix. I may add a little cinnamon next go round but this is so not “over the top” pumpkin etc. It’s perfect and going fast my friends. So very fast. #buzzfeedfood
I bought this adorable plaid table runner at Target last year, but just brought it out again today! I love the fact that it’s traditional fall colors, but in a soft and muted version. If you didn’t get a chance to see any of my fall tours and you’re looking for some fall decorating inspo, I’ve linked all of them in my profile! Hope your Monday felt like a Tuesday!💛 #casualchichome

So I noticed recently something that almost everyone on Instagram does but I’m just now realizing I never have: taking a picture of the dining table with beautiful place settings at each seat. 😬 Honestly, I never thought I was missing out on anything because it never even occurred to me to set the table for a prettier picture. 😂 I don’t have any nice dishes to use to set it up anyway. We asked for china for our wedding 14 years ago and received 5 sets. Don’t really know how that would be helpful. 🤣 With 4 kids, we use cheap Ikea dishes that look pretty but don’t cost a pretty penny. And we like drinking out of mason jars. For holidays we now use paper plates. Our family and extended family has grown so large that we don’t want to spend the entire holiday in the kitchen doing dishes. It might be a smaller gathering than usual this year for Thanksgiving at my house. And it will be my first time hosting Thanksgiving here. So I just might have to whip out those “fancy” Ikea plates and take a pretty picture. 😉💕🤗 #hideandseekfarm#diningroom
I thought I would start some of my festive posts out with a bang!! This fantastical abode has so much Halloween decor that I couldn’t capture it all in one shot, so make sure to scroll right and check out every amazing angle.
Whilst I was snapping away the owner came out and we chatted a bit about her home, she even went back inside to turn on the animatronics for me! Thank you so much Heather!
So what is everyone’s preference for Halloween? Do you tend to lean more towards subtle touches of the holiday or would you rather go all out?? I’m somewhere in between but I am absolutely in love with this place!! It’s booooootiful. See what I did there 👻😏👻
Had a great time getting my space set up for the @circlesshowhouse today! Excited and humbled to be working alongside so many other talented designers and artists. Don’t miss your chance to tour 3 historic homes this weekend, all decked out for Christmas!
Fact - I watched Hocus Pocus for the first time this weekend. It was cute and totally has me in the October spirit! (As if I needed help in that department 😂🎃) Question - what’s your favorite movie or show to watch during the Fall?!
We have a roof, and a porch! It’s finally poured, and the roof is 75% finished. Cool tid bit I learned after we poured the porch. All the floats and trowels we used were my granddads. I knew my Dad had a lot of concrete finishing tools but I just always assumed he bought them. Turns out my granddad used to do concrete work way back in the day. So I thought it was pretty cool that years later his tools helped build our home. Windows, doors, and brick will be delivered tomorrow 😬
The leaves weren’t the only things falling this weekend 🍂💨🌨. New England’s brisk autumn air finally made an appearance this weekend, with temperatures dropping into the forty’s 🧣🎃, which means layering season is here to stay! Today on the blog we’re sharing how to style white after Labor Day and how to add dimension to your autumnal wardrobe with tweed 🎃🍂❤️. http://liketk.it/2xLwq #redfleece#newengland
