Check out my holiday inspiration stash.
I actually own all of these except for the one on top. I pick these up at Half Price Books. If you have one in your town, you're awesome.
Past Christmas issues I can't bear to part with. Well....if my house were burning down I prolly wouldn't run to grab these, but ya know.
Anyone else LOVE when Country Home put a Santa on their covers? Anyone else still grieving the loss of this most excellent magazine?
This, my friends, is the best current holiday mag right now. FULL of merry-making goodness.
Like this....raise your hand if you like that pipe cleaner garland.
Or this: Reminds me a bit of Funky Junk Donna getting her bling on.
And this is just yummy....the colors are perfection.
Here's the mantel of the room above. Yes. I know.
And girls, this book is over a decade old, and it's still in style. Martha Martha Martha. You who set trends for the rest of us 10 years later.....I don't think a Pottery Barn catalogue would still be considered fashionable after a decade, eh? She is a magician.

Someone explain to me how I can love the blues and greens and reds above, yet still go weak in the knees when I see a rainbow of whites like this:
Sparkly nuts! I'd fit right in....
I'm also gathering inspiration from all the blogs....I stashed soooo many ideas from last year, and didn't save links to where I got 'em, so I hesitate to share them here as I can't give credit where credit's due (and there won't be any tutorials)....but I'll prolly stick 'em up over at the ::cottage crush collection::
And hey. I'm having a crew for Thanksgiving in just over ONE WEEK. Did I mention I was in the midst of 4 room makeovers? Oy.
