Merry Christmas!!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!!

Thank you for all your support this year (all of you that take your time to read this blog).  We leave for Vienna in less than two weeks and I promise to pick up the blogging once we get settled.  

In the meantime, Merry Merry!!

Kate Spade-y Inspired Tabletop

I am loving everything about this chic tabletop!  The colors (pink, gray and gold) really inspire me and if I had the space to design a nursery for my little E, this picture would be one of the top contenders.

In the meantime, I am using the tablecloth and striped runner as inspiration for the baby quilt my mother in law will make for E.  I am excited!  I found the perfect fabric - here and here.

Countdown is on...

and I'm not talking about Christmas (although that is around the corner too).   We'll be in Vienna in less than a month and I can hardly contain my excitement!  And, while it has been hard saying good-bye to our friends, I know we'll be back next fall so it's really not that long.

I am certainly bummed though that we will be missing out of one of Europe's greatest traditions - the Christmas Market.  We will be arriving right at the New Year so it'll be over, but the thought of a fabled Christmas market where you can exchange chain stores for cozy wooden chalets, Christmas music for angelic choirs and consumer frenzy for down to earth local holiday cheer makes me sad.  Just a different experience that I would love for my son to see.

In the meantime, I'm in a mad rush to finish Christmas shopping...thank God for online stores!

The Blue Papered Powder Room

Just when I thought I couldn't see beyond pink, I have fallen madly in love with blue - blue papered powder rooms!  Most of these powder rooms belong to fellow bloggers and in my humble opinion, I think they are fantastic!

Aren't blogs the greatest source of inspiration?
