Quote of the Week

"One of the most glorious messes in the world is the 
mess created in the living room on Christmas day. 
Don't clean it up too quickly."

- Andy Rooney

Happy Monday. How was your weekend? Mine was wonderful! My husband and I hosted our 8th Annual Christmas dinner party and it was a success. Can't wait to post photos of the decor & details :) Can you believe Christmas is this weekend?! I have a busy week ahead of me with last minute shopping, gift wrapping, etc. Are you prepared? I wish you a happy and productive week! xo - Julie


  1. I'm only half done with shopping and hope to have it all done by Tuesday. I couldn't agree with this quote more. Even as an adult, and all my siblings in their 20's now, the Christmas morning mess is so sweet and magical. Merry Christmas, Julie! I just absolutely love having your beautiful blog to read everyday.

  2. Love those circular paper fans on the first tree!

    Have a very Merry Christmas, Julie!

  3. The forth is funny, but my favorite is the last! It looks very lightly and airy.

    I like, to look inside round the world! ;)



  4. Just finishing off some last minute cooking now before the actual meals come together on Saturday.
    Have a Great Christmas.K

  5. hi julie, so happy your christmas party/dinner went well! and can't wait to see pictures of it all ;) i'm getting there with shopping and decorating. tonight i have one last final in boston and then tomorrow we are getting our tree. can you believe that? we don't even have it yet, that's how crazy i am! happy monday!

  6. I loved the first photo. This Christmas tree has sparked my imagination. I've imagined will be next year ...

  7. hmm, I guess my comment from the other day did not publish ... just wanted to tell you how much I LOVE this quote. I couldn't get it out of my head for days--just so lovely and true. And it was just the thing to include in my last post before Christmas (with a credit back to you of course). I'll email you the link.
    Thanks again for the inspiration and all the lovely photos and words you put together every day.
    Merry Christmas.
