Steals & Deals: The Best of the West Elm Friends & Family Sale

I mentioned yesterday that West Elm is having their BIGGEST SALE OF THE YEAR right now. But hurry ! It ends this weekend! EVERYTHING in stock is 20% off with the code FFSALE at checkout.

Our Holiday Home Tour – Main Living

Welcome back for round two of our holiday home tour! If you missed round one, which featured our entry, office and mudroom click here. The area you are about to see, is where we do most of our living. If you are a regular follower, you’ve seen lots and lots of shots featuring this area. Most of our photos on social media, that actually feature members of our family (okay, mostly photos of E) and are not just pretty room shots are taken right in this space. While this area of our home is a work in progress, I do love it in it’s natural form, but I tend to get bored when things stay the same for too long. To keep things interesting,… Read More
