Welcome to the weekend view…
and a little of this, that and everything else from the week that was.
This week, it is all about behind the scenes, catching up and autumn decorating.
It’s Beginning to Look A lot Like Christmas
Last week, I was in L.A. for a special project with my Balsam Hill family. It had to do with some of my favorite things- Balsam Hill, Christmas and Hallmark Channel.
I have been sworn to secrecy on the rest for now- but stay tuned for some behind the scenes coming your way in a few weeks. (these are the BH Farmhouse Christmas Ornaments)
Sniffling and sneezing
I came home with a bit of a cold after being on set in L.A.- and then with the change of season shift in the weather and wind- those autumn allergies kicked in full force and my sinuses have not been too happy. It probably doesn’t help that I have been working in the back 40 part of our property where there are quite a few cedar trees while it has been so windy. But…this view…I can’t help myself- it is a new favorite place to work and play.
If you have been following along for a bit- you might remember that I clipped fresh cedar branches to use in my bedroom for the holidays one year- and I couldn’t figure out why I had a rash on my arms and was so congested and sneezy… it was the cedar garland I put above our bed that was the culprit. Had no idea I was allergic.
Behind the scenes, Autumn and Holiday -coming your way
A busy couple of weeks coming up in the next month- and I am excited to share more about what we are up to. I have made some changes with the blog and business recently- and have been working with an assistant for several months which has been a game changer.
I am also working on several things for 2020 that I cannot wait to share soon. But first- we are talking pumpkins for a few more weeks- and then it is all holiday all the time for a bit.
And dreaming up a couple new ideas for both autumn and holiday this year and
this week I will be sharing more about the peek I shared of that simple porch styling last week-the barn for autumn. It is one of my favorite looks so far.
I will also be delving into a simple look with HomeGoods
and sharing a few tips for charming neutral autumn decor.
And I will be sharing what we were up to in North Carolina with my Greenworks family and some bloggers you might recognize. A hint- it also included white water and a big raft.
In book signing news- several fun events on the calendar for fall- starting with one in Baltimore, Maryland the first weekend of November with Balsam Hill– stay tuned for more information and I hope to see you there!
