weekend away

Hello Dears, 
It is time for a much needed vacation with my sweet family.  We will be indulging in Christmas extravaganzas galore including a ride on the Polar Express that will take us to the North Pole in our jammies with hot cocoa :) Love!
Then my friend Andrea and I will get some good girl time while we take a Midwest Living cooking class.  It is time for some relaxation and good company.
My shop is closed for four days and I am outta here! 
Enjoy the rest of your week!

Looks to love

Good Monday to you!  Crazy weekend with the kiddos while the hubby went on a hunting trip!  I am ready to break out of this house!  Looking so forward to a 4 mile run this morning to clear my foggy head!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE these looks for winter!  I'm going to talk to my auntie about making me a knock off of the necklace in the top photo! Adore it!
Enjoy your day and if the Holiday craziness is already getting to you like it is to me, remember to slow down and enjoy each moment of every day! xoxo

a new room for Fi Fi!

Finley is about to get a new room!  And of course I am super excited about this new project!  At the moment her room is very Rachel Ashwell filled with beautiful hand me down Shabby Chic bedding from her cousins. 
 While I admire Miss Ashwell greatly, it is time for something a little more Finley.
I have wanted to do a Serena and Lily room for her for quite awhile.  Pretty much every since she was born.  So when I got their private sale invitation in the mail the other day I couldn't resist.  Oddly enough Finley had picked this bedding out from their catalog because she has a thing for red and pink, and to my surprise it was part of the private sale.
  Can we say 50% off!!!???
I just couldn't resist!  I cannot wait for it to arrive and for the fun to begin!
Before and after pics for sure!

Now that Thanksgiving is over, lets snuggle in and get ready for snow and Christmas! 
If I haven't said it enough then I will say it again.  I am so thankful for my sweet family and wonderful friends!  Now on to the season of giving!

table settings

So the last few years I have gotten off easy for Thanksgiving.  My mother and my mother in law have hosted every year.  This year we are having Thanksgiving at Adam's mothers house and then we will go out to the farm where Adam and I got married to celebrate with my family.
So therefore I have not been able to decorate a table top for turkey day!  So I guess I have to wait for Christmas brunch!
What does your table top look like this turkey holiday?
gobble gobble...

cream tufted couch

Hey y'all!  I have a gorgie couch for sale!  Just came back from the upholsterer today and has been scotch guarded.  With amazing tufting and rolled arms you could steal this for only $800.00 or best offer!  I would keep it but I simply have a couch addiction and currently am hoarding 4 couches!  The hubby says it has to go :(  
Never used!  Email me at for more details!

down feather vest

Who doesn't love their down feather vest?
In my opinion, it's a classic folks.  And so many different ways of wearing one...
I am really diggin this guys option of sporting one over his blazer.  Love it!

terrible twos

Pardon my french, but I find this to be very true...
And hilarious!

Those who hustle

It sure feels like a Monday over here.  I cannot believe it is actually Thursday.  Life has been crazy friends, but in a good way.  I cannot believe that I have actually started my own small business!
  If you haven't checked me out on facebook yet please do!  Like Margaret of York and check out what I have been up to lately!

Happy Monday and Happy November.
I love the start of a new week!
I didn't post at all last week and I hate when that happens.  I could list all the reasons why I haven't been around but then you would probably be bored.  But a big part has been my lack of sleep lately due to a baby boy with multiple ear infections.  We are going to the specialist tomorrow! Yah!
So like I said a fresh start is always a good thing!
I printed this off and have put it in a place where I can see it everyday!
Enjoy your week!
