Random thoughts on the week before Christmas:
1. I’m half-way through the second season of the Crown. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s amazing. It’s like an entire part of British history that you thought you knew, but you really didn’t.
2. We just pulled down the fence in the backyard. My husband, my father-in-law, my two sons and a tractor were standing in the yard when I left yesterday for an ornament party. It was a good time to make an exit.
3. I just noticed I always refer to “we” in these posts. Truth? This “we” is usually just supervising.
4. There is one week left until Christmas. Seriously? How did that happen? Can we still be friends if I tell you I haven’t wrapped a single gift for my family? I had such high hopes this year. I even wrote a Christmas check-list.
I’m giving myself grace this year for Christmas. 🙂
And now for my favorite of favortists from around the web.
I am about to hang a chalkboard on our stairs.
Look at this cute chalkboard idea with the wreath and the bells.
You can see the rest of the room here.
Love this post.
It’s all about pressing pause to enjoy the week before Christmas.

Love this simple idea.
I’ve tied wreaths on the back of chairs, but never a stocking.
Such a cute idea for Christmas dinner.
Great article on transitioning from Christmas to the new year.
And I loved this trophy display.
And in random news this week:
This DIY leather basket
These cute gift wrapping ideas
This cookbook round up
This made me laugh out loud
These design tips (including that gold footrest on the island)
This is me on Christmas morning.
Every. Single. Time.
And one more for the road:
This is a post I wrote last year on how to get organized after Christmas.
I’m trying to take my own advice this year.
Merry Christmas to you.
