Pottery Barn, Home Tours + a Winner!


The Thanksgiving Plague continues to run through the house, and I have two puking boys home from school again today.  Thankfully, I’m feeling human again, but not without almost tossing my cookies at the grocery store last Friday.  It literally came out of nowhere.  Talk about a state of panic – I must have looked like death as I was hurrying through the checkout with my unfinished grocery load.  I should have ditched it and gone home – lesson learned.

I did get a chance to visit Pottery Barn this week, and was immediately sucked in to their winter wonderland.  I found a few things I couldn’t resist sharing.

I love how this living room set up is festive without necessarily being “Christmasy”.  The pops of red against the white sofa along with the warm wood tones are just plain welcoming.

Speaking of warm and welcoming, I don’t think I’d ever get up in the morning if my bedroom looked like this:

This dining room setup – beautiful.

The glass cloches – yes, please.

And a simple sofa table vignette.  Those pinecones!  I love that they work well beyond Christmas.

I need this pillow.

It would go perfectly with my free printable from Craftberry Bush.

But I would settle for this pillow.

How cute are these Santa pants for toting wine?

And these adorable salt and pepper shakers?  Probably the cutest thing I saw in the whole store.

There are tours to catch up on, in case you missed them!

Lisa’s tour at Shine Your Light.  I could see pulling up a chair and enjoying a holiday dinner here, can’t you?

Kris’ tour at Driven By Decor.  This dining room is absolute perfection!

Jen’s tour at Dimples and Tangles – her front entrance had me at hello.  I love the use of tall branches mixed with greenery in urns.  So classic and such a great impact as you approach her home.

And today’s tour, Cyndy’s home at The Creativity Exchange.  Her daughter’s room is just plain adorable.

I also have a winner of the Everything But The House $75 credit!  Congrats to Eva H!  I will be emailing you with the details!

Also a heads up (for me as well) – check out some of these great deals at Shutterfly before they expire!  I always give calendars and photo books each year, and these are deals you won’t want to miss!

Have a beautiful (germ-free) day!

    I was in Pottery Barn today too! So much inspiration in there! Love those pillows – you need to buy the one to match your artwork. I recently purchased the chalkboard Merry Christmas pillow and just love it! You can't go wrong in that store. I hope Santa shops in there for me this year!
    Cheers! – Shelley

    Oh no….it's terrible being sick this time of year. Hope you all have a speedy recovery.

    When I was pregnant I threw up in the aisle at Michael's. It was soooo embarrassing. Thank God we have two stores. I never go back to that closer one

    Cyndy's daughter's room is awesome!! Can't wait to go see the rest
