Merry Christmas from California! We had our Christmas dinner yesterday, so we came down to San Diego for the afternoon. Christmas music was playing, lights were shining, and families were enjoying the Bay. I hope everyone is spending time with those you care hold dear.
Tomorrow morning I am catching a flight to L.A. to see family. I haven't been out to California in three years, so to say that I'm excited is a tad bit of an understatement. I doubt I will look half as chic as the girl above though. Are you traveling anywhere for the holidays?
I will admit I've been a bad blogger this month. It is December and I have only written two posts, neither of which are about Christmas. No gift guides, no holiday pictures, no tree trimmings...nothing. Starting today, I will do better. To kick off my holiday spirit, I've put together a gift guide of books that are calling my name.
So, I mentioned here and here about my obsession for this wallpaper that is so pretty I just can't let it go. In my last post about said wallpaper, I discovered that the gorgeous, I-need-to-have wallpaper that I am lusting over costs $275 a roll. Even though my kitchen (which is where I want to put this) isn't that big, I just can't spend that much money on one roll....
Lucky for me, I don't have to. All the stars have some how aligned and there is a stencil out there with a similar enough pattern that I am grinning ear-to-ear as I type this post. It is amazing!! See stencil here, which is offered by Olive Leaf Stencils. Olive Leaf, I think you just might have completed me. Also, Mom please note the stencil is $39.95. Yes, that's right, it is on my Christmas list. :-)
