NEW LIVING ROOM RUG AND A TIP FOR USING RUGS OVER CARPET

I've had a vision for what I want my Christmas decorations to look like this year, and am planning to tone down my super bold colors a little bit.  Now, there will still be plenty of color in the mix, just done in a little different way.  So, although I still love it, after a year I'm giving the big pink rug a little break with a new living room rug.  Today I'm also sharing a handy tip for using a rug layered on carpet with you too.   First, here's a look at the rug!  I've got the 9x12 laid out here but think I might actually get the 10x14 instead.  We're hoping to put wood floors in here maybe next year so a little bigger would be nicer for the space.   9x12 Rug  (also available here )  ||  8x10 super price today ! ||  10x14 super price today ! Things were somewhere in between Fall and just starting to set up for Christmas when I snapped this photo.  I hadn't even planned on sharing this with you here so I didn't do a great job of documenting.  But gues...

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and weekend!  My tree is up but not decorated and that's all I've done for Christmas so far.  I better get moving though because I'll share my first Christmas tour with you later this week!  I've also barely started my Christmas shopping, what about you?  And honestly, I didn't buy much over the holiday weekend but I've spent some time perusing today's Cyber Monday sales.  Lots of big deals everywhere!

FESTIVE MIX AND MATCH HOLIDAY OR WORKWEAR OUTFITS

This post is sponsored by Walmart. When the calendar fills up over the holiday season with countless gatherings and events to go to, be wardrobe ready with some great basic mix and match pieces in the closet to create multiple looks!  With 3 pairs of pants and 3 jackets from some of my favorite Walmart fashion lines (plus a few basics already in my closet), I created 8 different cute holiday outfits and probably could have mixed in a few more too! I styled a range of looks from casual but polished to a bit dressier, all of these outfits will come in handy for various gatherings over the next few months and most would also be great workwear for office parties too!  I shared these plaid pants with you a few weeks ago, but didn't realize there was a jacket to match until afterwards.  Totally loving the set but each separate piece gives a whole new round of outfit options. (And my opinion is that it's a must to mix in a leopard bag or shoes from your closet with this pattern so...

CLASSIC WARM PINE AND FEATHER THANKSGIVING TABLE

One week and counting!  I can't believe Thanksgiving is just a week away.  We will not be gathering at our house but my kids will be home from college tomorrow so I wanted to set a nice Fall table for us to enjoy through next week anyway.  Who says you can't just have waffles or tacos with your table set for Thanksgiving?!? 😆   Butterfly Wall Prints- blue and pink   ||  Black and White Striped Chair Fabric This was actually one of the quickest tables I've put together, I used things I already had on hand for the whole thing.  I wanted my table this year to have a super classic, warm, traditional but not boring Thanksgiving feel.   I started the centerpiece with a picnic basket that I picked up from a vintage mall several months ago and a grapevine pumpkin (it's kind of hard to tell what it is in the photos!).  Then I spread some faux long needle pine branches, I would have used real ones if I had a long needle pine tree to cut from.  Similar Faux Pine Stems   A former ...

DIMPLES AND TANGLES READS | BOOKS I'M LOVING LATELY {2}

I intended for this to be a semi-regular series, but it's been over a year since I shared my one and only other book rec post with you!  Oops!  I read all the time but taking the time to make a little summary and record my thoughts about each book has just escaped me... but today's the day for round 2 of books I'm loving lately!  As a reminder, I'll give a brief summary here (enough to tell you I recommend the book!) without a lot of details, but am linking each book here out of convenience if you'd like to read the more detailed summaries.  However,  I generally check them out from the library, either the physical copy or digital copies through  the "Libby" app  and then upload them to my Kindle account (or you can read directly through the app).  If you're not familiar with Libby I highly recommend it for free e-books and audiobooks by registering with your library card.
