Welcome Inside My 100 Year Old Home

It’s been such an incredible week as I spent five days in Waco at our Airbnb. While I was there I toured the Magnolia Market, bought lots of things for our home at the Magnolia Shop on Bosque and “de Christmassed” our home. I also painted and hung two abstract paintings, made tissue paper cherry blossoms from branches cut in our backyard, reorganized three cabinets, baked french bread and spent a lot of time with my friends Amy from Cutertudor and Kimberlee from The Morrow House. As I was leaving Texas I had an amazing lunch with my dear friend Karianne from Thistlewood Farms. You really need to check out these three amazing ladies!

My favorite part of Christmas is gift-giving and as you know, I love making gifts! I have been making homemade Christmas gifts for my family since I was eight and I can promise you there were some interesting gifts in those early years. (I am sure my siblings will agree!)

Oh, how I wish I had a photo of my handcrafting at 8 years old!
