I am going to serve these two different drinks at some point this holiday season. Do you have any special drinks that you serve guests over the holidays? Do share.

Glam Closet

This photo inspires me to organize my closet.

Wouldn't it be easier to choose what to wear if your closet looked like this.

Love this image (it's like an untold story) and the idea of owning a dress that has been custom made to fit.

Barefoot Contessa

Ina Garten is one of my standby favorites. She has a new book coming out called Barefoot Contessa, Back to Basics. I am eager to get a hold of it. She appears to be so easy going and I want to cook with her some afternoon. Her new 'barn' is amazing!

More, More, More

Both Rebel and I were so excited about the John Derian line for Target but all it's done is left me wanting more. Where can I find his whale tote? It's so adorable and so chic.

At the Table

The simplicity of this place setting makes it an appealing option for Turkey Day. Maybe with a twiggy centerpiece...

Can You Imagine

What would it be like to have a carpeted kitchen? What happens when you take something from the fridge that seems like it has it's lid securely attached and then drops to the ground leaving you holding just the lid. This week my 7 year old was helping to make eggs and one of them made it's way out of it's shell, down the front of the cabinet and into a puddle on the floor. At least with Flor carpet tiles, you could just pull up one tile and wash it. Even still, I can't imagine a carpeted kitchen. I do love their carpet though.

A Little Blue

Aren't these great, big pieces for a dining room! They're such a nice subtle color, either of them would be a great accent piece to a monochromatic color scheme.

Added Interest

The use of these copper pots have such a drastic impact on this room. Without them it could be drab and cold but with them, the room is lively and interesting. And how fun would it be to always on the look out for more copper pots to add to a collection? I love it!

The room is from the portfolio of
Eddie Ross who I am currently enthralled with. More on that later.

Planning the Thanksgiving Table

Because it's never really
too early. I've been inspired by this layout from Country Living. Now there's plenty of time to think about the application.
