It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Many of you saw my Christmas decor at our Season for Caring party, but here are some pics I took with my Iphone. Maybe my photographer hubby will find time to shoot some better pics- hint hint, nudge nudge. I was really inspired this year by natural materials and handmade goodness-hince the paper and pipe cleaner ornaments hand made by yours truly! I am such a crafting dork!
Christmas tree O Christmas tree!
 Handmade ornaments...
Pinecones spray painted with silver and silver glitter
Light fixture decor over Dining table- remember the Anthropologie inspiration?
 Entry Hall table

 Christmas greenery and flowers

Christmas wreath on front door with Jute ribbons
Back porch decor- White paper lanterns tied with Jute string

Fun stuff! What are your Christmas colors this year?

Saw it and had to post it!

This bathroom is awesome. In my opinion. I found it on Canadian House and Home and had to post. They say the tile backsplash is cork penny tiles... Interesting. Love pretty much everything down to the baskets- how cute are those? Frosted glass panel hiding the toilet- not so much... it's short enough to just look silly.

Natural, Neutral Christmas

Whoa! I need to get with the program! I'm sorry that my last post is Thanksgiving material... So these have been my inspirations for this year's Christmas decor at Casa de Ales. I'm going Neutral and Natural...

 And we can't forget this inspiration from Anthropologie...

So I've tried my hand (literally) at Christmas ornaments and decorations, so you'll have to let me know what you think. We are hosting our second annual Christmas party for Season for Caring on Saturday, so I will be sure to post pics!

My Thanksgiving Table!!

I know it's almost Christmas people, but I'm excited to post pictures of my very FIRST Thanksgiving tabletop! A couple of posts ago, I gave you a sneak peek into a couple of things I was doing, but here is the finished product! I have to say I forgot to add the glasses for these pictures, but they were pretty too- I mean when else can you use your crystal?

The FAM!
And last but not least, my PRECIOUS Gracie who was too cute not to post! She's in my sister in law's dog's bed (which is a Boston Terrier). We didn't have the heart to tell Gracie she was too big for the bed ;)
