Woof Woof! (Merry Christmas)

Merry Christmas, everyone, from my house to yours.  Mr. Stewart Wallace hopes everyone has a very merry Christmas filled with laughter, happiness, love, and joy!  Christmas only comes once a year, so make the most of this time. :)


Thankful Thursday: Merry Christmas


It feels so good to be home.  Above is my burro, Bailey, who let me take her picture as she welcomed me home.  I hope you are all with your families, relaxing, having fun, and reminiscing about what makes life so special.  This is the time of the year to let everyone know how much you love them and what they mean to you.  It’s good to do this all year long, but life does get busy and sometimes we lose sight of what’s really important.  I hope right now you know that what’s really important is not how clean your house is, it’s not any gossip going around about what’s-their-name, it’s not even about how financially stable you or your family is.  What is most important is that you give love to others and you do the best you can.  If you do those two things, you are doing well.

This Christmas, I am more thankful and more understanding than I have ever been of what God did for all of us on earth.  He showed us He loved us in the most gracious way,

Icicle Blue Christmas Tableau

I’ve had so much time now that school is over to focus on blogging, so I decided to add another inspiration board today.  This time it is a very icy and cool tableau for a special Christmas dinner.  I’m sorry for all the blue, but I just can’t get enough of it, especially at this time of the year.  I try so hard to stray to different colors, but it keeps beckoning me back in!

iciclebluechristmastableauI tried to stick with fairly inexpensive items, but I figure if I had a house and decorations, I would already have many black, white, silver, and blue decorations so I would be able to pull something like this together fairly easily.  I am imagining this all on a beautiful long dark-stained wood table.  Here is the breakdown of everything I chose:

1)  Black Chargers – These would be used under the plates on the sides of the table, but not at the heads of the table.  These are very simple except for their curved edge which makes them a little more glamorous and fancy.

2) White Plates – Keeping it simple with plain

Christmas Living Room: Two Ways

Remember when I posted about my favorite Christmas color schemes, blue/silver and purple/gold?  I decided all the inspiration pictures were fun to look at, but I wanted to do something more with them.  I picked one of my favorite pictures from both color schemes and designed a living room around them.

The blue/silver color scheme led me to pick more glamorous decor.  I wanted the blues to really pop, so I stuck with whites and silvers mixed with an occasional pop of dark wood as the neutral accent colors.  I designed it around this Christmas tree from Canadian House and Home.


Here is the fully decked-out blue Christmas living room:


I started with this fabulous Montego navy pennyback sofa.  I loved its clean lines mixed with the tufting to make it feminine and masculine, and oh so glam.  Next, I wanted a rug to ground the room.  I didn’t want anything too dark because I didn’t want to take away from the tree or the already dark sofa.  This fleece rug did the trick.  I

Home For The Holidays Tour: Part Two

Here is the second half of my parent’s house.  We left off at the master bathroom.  To view the first half, go here.

DSC_0165 DSC_0166 All of the tile work in the entire house was done by my dad.  He is a carpenter and can do just about anything house-related.  He is very handy.  There is a clear shower door which swings out and a nice jetted spa tub next to the shower with two huge windows above.  Now, you can really see that we live in the middle of nowhere surrounded by woods.
