BEST OF THE NEST LINK PARTY {NOVEMBER}


Well hey there, friends!  I hope you all had the best Thanksgiving yesterday!  I'm still recovering from that food coma... So what are you up today today?  Shopping? Decorating for Christmas?  I hope to get started on my Christmas decor today.

Since it's the last Friday of the month, we're ready to see what you've been working on.  What was the best from your nest from the past few weeks?

DIY POM POM PILLOW


Although I haven't started decorating for Christmas yet, I've been mulling over plans in my head. I know what my general look will be and have been thinking about which pillows I want to use for the season. I want to mix my Togo spot pillows back in, but they've seemed a little plain to me since I made them last summer.

With Christmas being the time for all of the extra little details, I thought I'd add some pom poms to my pillows. Last year I made a few pom pom projects and they are such a quick and easy way to add a little bit of fun to a room!

IS YOUR KITCHEN READY TO COOK? CLEAN IT UP WITH MEISTER!


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Meister Cleaners. All opinions are 100% mine.

Many of you know that I've been working on a not so little kitchen makeover.  I'm sure I'm the only one that this happens to, but when I'm in project mode, the rest of the house goes to the wayside.  Since the kitchen has been the project, it's been pretty much a disaster area.  We've still been grabbing meals here and there, and my sweet husband has kept the dishwasher loaded, but other than that there hasn't been much cleaning going on in there.

So, now that the work is coming to a close, it was time to move in and get everything back into shape.  My appliances were especially gross dirty, and needed a little more than the normal wipe down to be clean and pretty again.

RED HOT NIGHTSTAND MAKEOVER


I'm suffering from some serious DIY ADD, bouncing back and forth between the kitchen and my daughter's room.  A few weeks ago while the weather was nice and I already had the garage set up as a spray paint workshop, I decided to go ahead and paint the Craigslist nightstands that I plan to use in her room.

Remember the before?  These have been waiting patiently in the garage since this summer for their makeover.  The finish on the tops was in really bad shape, you can see that the legs were chipped up, and they had that speckled/stained 70s finish.  However, the drawers are stamped Century on the inside and I could tell that they were heavy, quality pieces.

BLOGGER'S FAVORITE HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY


We all know that Christmas will be here sooner than we think, at least the adults realize that... for kids it seems like an eternity away!  The darling Mallory of Charming in Charlotte invited a few of our blog friends to round up some of their favorite things this holiday season, and we're passing them along to one fabulous reader!

CHRISTMAS IS COMING... 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS HOME TOURS


Christmas is just around the corner!  It seems like every way I turn I'm reminded of that fact, and I see more and more decorating happening around the web each day.  There's no Christmas action going on here yet, but there will be soon!  I'm happy to announce that I'll once again be a part of the second annual 12 Days of Christmas Tour of Homes, along with an amazing group of top notch bloggers.

KITCHEN MINI MAKEOVER PROGRESS


Hey there!  The polar vortex has officially hit Oklahoma.  We were near 80 degrees yesterday and have a high of 40 today.  Yikes.  I've been anticipating the colder weather and working like crazy in between some big events to finish up lots of projects that needed to be done outside.  Over the weekend, I finished spraying all of the kitchen cabinet doors and drawers, 2 nightstands, 4 lamps, and a headboard.  And created a fantastic mess in the garage (much too windy to spray paint outside, even though the weather was nice).

MY THANKSGIVING TABLE: BLOGGER STYLIN' HOME TOURS


Well hello, and if you're new here, Welcome!  I'm so happy that you've found your way to Dimples and Tangles, and hope you like what you see.  If you're visiting from Rain on a Tin Roof, wasn't Jenna's table just SO good?  And yes, that's Jenna-I'm-in-BHG-this-month!!!! So happy for her.  I'm pretty sure we're design twins separated at birth, neither one of us are afraid of color...that's for sure! And on that note, ALL of the tours today are pretty fabulous, so make sure to catch the others.  Also, a big thank-you goes to Lindsay from The White Buffalo Styling Company for organizing this week's Blogger Stylin' Home Tours: Thanksgiving Edition.  All of the Blogger Stylin' Home Tours are some of my favorites every year.

This year, I wanted to make a departure from the traditional fall palette.  I'm not really sure what my inspiration point was, it just all sort of fell together.

MEANINGFUL SOUVENIRS


On our recent trip to London, we did more looking than buying (the exchange rate is terrible!).  My friends introduced me to the Very Bradley of London... Cath Kidston.  Her stores have the cutest wares made from darling fabrics.  I searched 3 stores until I found her signature London design on a tea towel.  I don't normally keep a towel on my oven or dishwasher handles, but after seeing this one I wanted to see those wonderful London icons and remember our trip every day.
