MERRY CHRISTMAS 2019



Wishing each of you the very Merriest Christmas and a Happy New Year!  I pray you feel loved and know peace this holiday season, ultimately because of the reason we celebrate in the first place... Jesus being born to save us from our sin.  May His love and peace bring rest to your heart!

"For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mightly God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."  Isaiah 9:6

FRIDAY FASHION FAVES


I usually do a random group of items for Five Friday Favorites, but lately I've had several great fashion finds so decided to stick with that for a theme for what I'm sharing with you today.  These are all recent additions that I really love and think you will too.  We're probably too late to add these to your Christmas wish list, but if you find yourself with a little Christmas money burning a hole in your pocket I can help you find something to do with it... ha!

Leopard Flats- I think I own about every style of leopard shoe available, but I've just about worn holes in the bottom of my leopard flats.  I've had my eye out for a new pair, and I recently saw that these that are normally around $150 had been clearanced at one of my favorite mall stores.  But, then I found them online for an even better price!   I really love these, you can tell in the photo that the heel has a cushion and the rest of the foot bed is slightly cushioned as well.  Most of the reviews suggest sizing down 1/2 size, trust those!  I'm a strong size 10 in shoes, and the 10 was too big for me.  9 1/2 was perfect!  (And I couldn't figure out why they didn't feel quite right when I got them until I realized there were still cardboard liners in them across the top of the toe... duh!!  ;)  Totally couldn't see or really feel them, make sure you take those out!) Shoes also here on sale if sizes are unavailable in previous link.

IT'S A COLORFUL LIFE 2019 CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR: PART 1- LIVING ROOM


Hello, and Merry Christmas!  It's hard to believe we're well into the holiday season once again!  This year, I'm thrilled to be hosting the 2nd Annual It's a Colorful Life Christmas Tour with Jewel from Jeweled Interiors.  The best group of bloggers who love color are joining us for a three day colorful Christmas eye candy feast!  Today I'm so excited to help kick this party off by sharing my Christmas Living Room Tour with you.  

If you've landed here for the first time, welcome!  I'm so glad you're here.  My name is Jennifer and I've been sharing my home for over 8 years through this blog and on Instagram.  My goal is to share helpful tips and inspiring projects with you to encourage you to create your own home that's a reflection of your life and style.  I worked several years after college as an Elementary school teacher, but have always been creative and interested in decorating, and although I have no design training have experimented with my own style and home over the years.  I live in Oklahoma with my husband, son (who is actually away at college), and teen daughter.  I obviously love decorating with color and mix and match patterns every chance I can.  Get comfy and come on in, I'd love to show you around!

For Her, For Him, For Teens, For the Home, and Books.

DIY HONEYCOMB BALL WREATH, FA LA LA SIGN, AND CHRISTMAS TOUR SNEAK PEEKS!


I've been a busy bee decorating for Christmas and it never fails that along with that I have a few crafty projects thrown into the mix!  This year I was inspired by a honeycomb ball wreath and DIY Christmas sign I saw in HGTV Magazine, and from a project I saw from a fellow blogger.  They got my creative juices flowing for a few key pieces to switch up my Christmas decor a little bit this year.  In the process of sharing these projects, I'll also show you a few sneak peeks of my Christmas tour.
