This week I got to spend a couple days with my nephews – I took them to see The Muppets (can you believe these kids had never heard of Kermit the Frog?!), we went ice skating (not my greatest talent, let me tell you), and my sister and I stayed up late gabbing (one of my better talents for sure). Every time I leave I wish they lived closer. I’m talking to you, Abigail!
I hope you enjoyed this week’s holiday posts, and now for some weekend links!
Love this vintage photograph art.
This painting and my inspiration board are cousins.
The bride wore Valentino.
Glittered clothespins to dress up your gifts.
These paper dolls crack me up.
A super fun holiday mix for your festivities!
The perfectly timeless chignon.
Adorable accordion calendar from The Indigo Bunting (stocking stuffer?).
Congratulations to Allegra on winning $125 toward Frances Palmer’s Pearl Collection. Allegra said: I love the Flower Luncheon Plates! So sweet. I can just imagine having brunch with my girlfriends on those. (with my husband cooking for us all!)
Have a happy weekend, lovelies! This weekend I’ll be attempting to finish up all of my Christmas to-do’s before we head out of town to spend the holiday with Ryan’s family. Will you be doing last minute Christmas shopping, too?
To round up our gift guide, we picked out some of our favorite fun things for the littler folks at your wedding – flower girls, ring bearers, junior bridesmaids. And of course, we hope these ideas might inspire should you be searching for that last minute holiday gift for the kids (or young-at-heart) in your life.

First up, goodies for your bridesmaids (or for yourself)…
