This is going to be a good weekend, i can feel it. Yes, yesterday i slipped in the ‘i got picked up for a third and fourth season’, casually because the show is going to change a lot, for the better of course.
I can’t tell you how excited i am. Imagine finding out in one email that you get to do your dream job for a another full year, guaranteed. I read the email over and over making sure i could celebrate and tell people and after confirming with them I got an email that said ‘Buy some champagne, you have a reason to celebrate this weekend’.
Speaking of this weekend MY 1 HOUR HOLIDAY SPECIAL AIRS ON SATURDAY AT 4PM (EST, 1PM PST) ON HGTV. Watch it. I dare you.
And a new show that HGTV has picked up is called ‘Junk Gypsies’ and they are having a sneak peek at there new series (which involves two chicks, a lot of junk turned into awesome stuff, and TEXAS!!!). It’s airing sunday at 7 central time which is what, 5 PST ? THIS SUNDAY!!! Watch it and support these chicks because they are helping make HGTV younger and hipper so we have to prove to HGTV that there is an audience for that.
Alright now to my monthly sponsor post:
I started listing what i’m thankful for and it started feeling very self-congratulatory. Suffice it to say, i am very, very lucky, in every single way.
One of the things that i am most grateful for is the blog, obviously and i’m grateful for the sponsors that help support me and the helpers. So, dear readers, this is my shout out to the November advertisers.
Thank you so much in advance for letting me support companies that support me.
First up: Raine Studios, i’m not the biggest jewerly person but i could rock this $25 ring pretty proudly:
I forgot how much i like these sweet fine are prints by Little Brown Pen
They are curated by color and sell for a collection of nine $150 and 4 for $75 purchase Here Totally sweet and affordable.
My Sparrow is one that I didn’t know about until recently but its an awesome online resource – furniture, accessories and jewelry/gifts:
I love this vintage linen cosmetic bag 10″ square and $38.
And in my new studio i’m going to have loads and loads of pretty things to put pretty things in, including this berry box:
$15. Link Here.
I love Paloma Nests new holiday stockings. Order quick to get them this christmas:
$68 and so chic, modern yet warm. Its a toss up for me between these and West Elm’s silver sequence stockings. Two completely different styles, but i love them both. Purchase Here
Another new company i didn’t know about is Vanessa Adao. It’s a lot of textiles and wallpapers.
This wallpaper is great and totally weird in a really good way. I love the scale of it. It’s $25 a foot, 50″ wide (which is super wide, by the way). Purchase Here.
I keep almost buying this necklace from Kris Nation – you all know i’m a fan of them. SOOOO pretty:
But i’m also super attracted to this one:
Less ‘ME’ but super special. I tend not to wear big chunkier necklaces because of the larger bazoomes happening there, but I think i need to start trying to pull them off (the necklaces not the bazoomes).
YES, you can get your own custom silhouette (like your kid) and yes, you can get in gold. If I were to do it i would get it gold and engraved on back with the name, age and year. $168 but totally worth it. Buy it Here.
This month i have a couple new more Renovation companies sponsoring – not style oriented but everybody needs a new faucet now and again.
First up is Machen Supply. It’s a lot of high end hardware and decorative finials, medallions, etc.
If i were to put knobs on my powder room dresser, it would be these:
Because i’m a girl and i like sparkly things. Link here
Another new sponsor is Designer Living. They sell a ton of bedding, rugs, textiles. Some good basics and some more contemporary stuff that’s not necessarily my style. But i like this pillow a ton:
It’s $39.99 and 16″ square. Buy here.
I love Linda Donahue’s paintings (i’ve used a couple on the show even). So i’m so happy she’s sponsoring me on the blog. Check out this new painting:
11×14 and its $150. Purchase and see what else she is selling Here.
And i love this one too, 20×20 $250 Buy here
Posh Locket sells a ton of inexpensive jewelry – you kinda have to comb through it but i like this bracelet:
It’s $20 and comes in gold and silver. Check it out Here.
Last but not least: Englady Jewelry. All handmade.
Like this adorable four leaf clover pendant. Check it out Here. $40, although this is silver and you know i want it in gold, you know it.
