the holidays + good mood board event

i hope everybody had a fantastic loooong weekend. i know i did. i cooked a LOT, we had thanksgiving dinner, watched a few movies as a family, raked uh-LOT of leaves, visited with friends, and relaxed. and no, i never got around to making the table look just looked ok. a simple tablecloth, my white dishes, some cute striped napkins, a few mercury glass votives with candles in them, and that was it. maybe next year. *cough, cough.
a BIG thank you to everyone who checked out my curators sale at joss and main! i was really excited to see how many items sold out, and was pleased with the overall selection. i tried to include items that were budget friendly, and had an interesting and eclectic look. this was (obviously) a first for me, and it was a lot of fun and a really great experience. one of the things i realized is that joss and main has a blog! i honestly didn't know that before i was asked to curate the sale. i wrote a post for the blog that you can check out here.

anyway, back to this weekend...i spent a lot of time in my pajamas, and really tried to focus on my family. it was wonderful! thanksgiving really is my favorite holiday...i love that it is centered on eating a wonderful meal with our families. good food, good company, and hopefully some laughs and a nap. how can you top a day like that?? i also love that thanksgiving is the official gateway to christmas.

although i tried to unplug myself from the computer, i did spend a little time on pinterest. it's hard to stay away from that site! it's so addicting. in any case, looking through all of the pictures got me in a holiday mood. there is something so calming about looking at amazing houses all decked out for the holidays. 
here are a few of my favorites from the archives of my blog:

all images scanned by me from various sources over the last few years.
it's time to get out the christmas decorating tubs! (if i can find them....grrr.)
