I'm so excited to be partnering with Polyvore on their Project Decorate campaign to help them give TWO lucky winners a $500 gift card to Z Gallerie! You may know Polyvore as the awesome fashion site that helps you create outfits and moodboards, and they have now done just that for home decor. It fun and easy to use, and you can "clip" things from all over the web to use in your collection or set [much like "pinning" on Pinterest!]
I will personally be choosing one of the winners, so go get busy on creating a board! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
Do you remember this beautiful California cottage that House Beautiful featured in one of their "small spaces" issues? When it came in the mail- I found myself turning back to it several times - when I came across it today I was reminded of how much I liked it again. This [is it third now?] polar vortex has me chilled to the bone, and for just a few moments - this place transported me to warmer days...
With all the cooking, cleaning, and shopping that it takes to make the holiday season come to life for all of those we love - its nice to treat ourselves a little bit, too! I love pieces that are versatile - high and low, day to night, you get the idea. All of these pieces seem so perfect. And that little La Prairie ultra luxe nightcream with the applicator brush - it just seems downright fun!
I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving weekend. It was so nice to take pause and spend some time with family and friends before what is sure to be a whirlwind and hectic holiday season! Last week was like a blur for me, starting with my birthday on Wednesday, Thanksgiving Friday, and as a retailer Black Friday and Small Biz Saturday packed a 1-2 punch! Needless to say, I didn't get around to posting the gift guides I was hoping to, so I am going to pick that back up this week - but first I want to remind you that there is ONE LAST DAY to this Black Friday madness, and that's today - CYBER MONDAY!

This week is all about gift guides! Black Friday is upon us - and if you're like me, you're just starting to make you list. I'm kicking things off with a list for the all important men in our lives and recruited my husband to give this list the final stamp of approval, so hopefully the men in your life will enjoy these gifts, too!
One of my favorite escapes is the north shore of Minnesota [along the shoreline of Lake Superior]. A couple of days amongst the norwegian pines, watching the waves roll in, and strolling in the sweet town of Grand Marais is the best kind of unplugged there is. If my birthday weren't the day before thanksgiving, followed by every single weekend with holiday plans, my birthday wish would be a short weekend on the north shore in a cabin like this one...
Katie and Meg over at To & From Magazine continue to give us all the gift of effortless shopping this holiday season with yet another perfect installment of their gift guide. There is so much to love. What I like most is how many small businesses they post things from, and how unique so many of the products are - there is seriously something for everyone on your list, including you dog ;)
Be the hostess with the mostess this Thanksgiving with a stylish and stocked barcart.
I love that you can circle round the table with this glammy gold barcart from my faves over at Society Social. Stir your Mayflower cocktails with customized wooden stir sticks [available in gold too!] - and don't forget to let your guests know what you're serving with this native american inspired frame.
