the simple touch




I've always been attracted to the easy way.  I don't know if this is bc I'm lazy or don't like fussy.  I guess it doesn't matter.  Whatever you are drawn to, stay true to. 





These little berry bouquets 💝.






Dried hydrangeas are always a good look.



The command center all tidy.



This wall of crazy somehow calms me.  Stay warm. x

  5. Your home looks perfect Janet. In other news I just ordered the Everlane snake boots. Not waiting for Santa and I figure I have been good enough. Wishing you a peaceful and blessed Christmas.

  6. Just love your house. Neutrals for the living areas, and blue for the bedroom is what I am aiming for too. I have de-cluttered massively over the past few years, and I am now living on my own too. So I am rebuilding for a lifestyle that fits around me.

  9. Your tree reminds me of what we now have. Ours is about that size only it's in an urn - the only thing I have on it are white lights. This is what we've had for a Christmas tree since losing our oldest son. Hard to believe this is the fourth Christmas without him with us. This tree is all I can do - and that's okay. We do what we can, when we can. I keep the tree up long past Christmas. I love the glow of the lights in the depth of winter.

  19. Lovely. I agree that for me, a simple holiday style is best. I've seen so many posts lately about the pressure of the season, and I wish it weren't that way. Thinking of you and hoping that you are finding peace and light as you navigate a new way through the holidays!
