Christmas Past...Vintage Trees!

Hi Glam readers!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with your family and friends.
We stuffed about as much fun as we could into one weekend!

This is probably my favorite time of year.  I love all of the festivities and of course, the decor.
One thing I've been dreaming about for the last several years is a retro Christmas tree.  I love the vintage aluminum pom pom trees!  I think it's probably because they're silver, there is something decidedly glam about a silver Christmas tree!

I love the aluminum trees that were popular from about 1958 through the mid 1960s.

How cool is the turquoise sofa in this picture?!  Mid Century perfection!

I happened upon a retro tree the other day and now I'm just trying to decide if I should keep it or sell it.  What are your thoughts?

How about you?  

Do you like adding touches of Christmas past to your decor?

What sort of vintage pieces are incorporated into your home?

I would love to hear about them, or even see pictures!  Drop me a line!

Happy Thanksgiving: Decorating With Gourds

Hi Glam readers!  I'm a bit of a holiday purist, I love decorating for Christmas and all the fun that goes along with that, but I certainly don't want Thanksgiving to get lost in the shuffle.
Every year, we have so much to be thankful for, even in the difficult years.  This year was especially hard for our family for a myriad of reasons, but we're all healthy and I'm grateful.

I love the idea of decorating with gourds, especially if you'll be hosting Thanksgiving, because you can pick up just about everything you need while you're grocery shopping!

Last, but not least this beautiful diy pumpkin arrangement was done by my blogging buddy Shannon.  You much check out her home and her Fall tour, I know you'll love it all!

What about you?

Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year?

Have you done a tablescape or any diy projects to get ready for the holiday?

I would love to hear about them!!!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and make precious memories with family and friends!!


Makeover Monday!!! YOUR Projects!

Hi Glam readers!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are looking forward to a great Thanksgiving celebration with family and friends.

One of my favorite things about this blog is the people I meet along the way.  I have been blessed to "meet" some amazing people through this blog and the many social media outlets we connect to.
As, you all know, I love a good project!  Lately, I've had the opportunity to see and share some of your projects and I love that!  I love that we can inspire each other to create something amazing, something personal, something beautiful.

Last week on the blog, I asked you to share your projects with me either via instagram, or by emailing them to me.  Let me just say, you are a talented bunch!  I got to see a lot of great projects, but today, I'll share one of my favorites for the week.

This one was submitted by fellow blogger and instagram friend, DRAVENMADE.  You can check her blog out at

Isn't it beautiful?!  I haven't had the opportunity to do a highboy dresser in a while and this one is making me itch to find another!  I think the gray was a perfect choice!
Thank you so much for sharing this Draven!

How about you?

Have you done any furniture projects lately?

I would love to see them!

You can either email them to me through the blog, or tag me on instagram with the following hashtag:


I can't wait to see more of your projects!

Friday Five Under $5: Holiday Ready For Only One Dolla'!

Hey Glam readers!  I hope you all had a great week!
Raise your hand if you're hosting Thanksgiving this year...I'm not, but just in case you are and you're short on supplies for your table, I've got you covered.
The Dollar Tree has some great plates, glassware and even chargers just in time for the holidays!

Gold chargers for just $1!  I love the beaded detail on this.

White glass dishes are neutral enough to go with any holiday decor, or any dinner party for that matter!

They also had white dishes with beaded detail.

Glass stemware with gold detail.

 I know I'm partial to white and gold, but I really do think it would be lovely on any table setting.

How about you?

Do you have big holiday plans?

I would love to hear about them!

Makeover Monday! Your Projects!!!

Hi Glam readers!  You all know I love a good project.
Last week, I reached out and asked you to share your projects with me and I wanted to share my favorite submission with you.

My fave!  How fabulous is the makeover on this one?!  It has all of my favorite elements, campaign detail, high gloss kelly green.  This pair was thrifted for $25 each!  It was submitted by instagram follower vickinugent.  I really love not only the makeover, but all of the other elements as well.  That gold faux bamboo lamp is perfection and i'm loving the pink books and the elephant as well!  Awesome job Vicki!

How about you?

Do you have any makeovers you would like to share?

I would LOVE to see your projects!!!

You can either email them to me via the blogger contact form, or tag me on instagram with the following hashtag:

Friday Five Under $5!

Hi Glam readers!
It's Fri-yay!  It's been crazy busy around here, the last few weeks have been crazier than usual.
There's lots going on around here and hopefully I can slow down long enough to share a life update with you soon.  In the mean time, I wanted to share another round up of great finds under $5.
The holiday season is upon us and in my opinion, Target always knocks it out of the park.
This year seems to be no exception.  I happened to run in there the other day for one thing...ahem...yes, just one thing.  This time I actually only left with two items, not too shabby!
I was there when they were resetting their "Dollar Spot" for Christmas and I just had to share some of my favorites with you!

I love this little "Happy Christmas" sign!  I like the metal detail and it was just $3.00

How cute are these little cake stands?  They have a decidedly retro feel, which I love!  These were just $3.00 as well.

These red mugs have a chalkboard detail on the front which would be really cute with all sorts of holiday wishes!  These were also $3.00.

I love the vintage feel of these glitter trees as well!  So cute for $3.00.

Last, but not least, were these cute buffalo plaid paper straws with "cheers" sliders in gold.
These were my personal favorite and they came home with me.  They were just $1.00!  I really should have grabbed two packs.  I'm thinking these will go fast as I couldn't find another pack when I went back to the store.  If you happen to find them, send them my way :)

I'll be featuring these in a really cute Christmas vignette soon!

How about you?

Have you found anything you love for under $5 lately?

I would love to hear about it!

I hope you all have wonderful weekend!

Designer Spotlight: Parker Kennedy Living

Hi Glam readers!  I hope you're having a wonderful week so far.  
Today, I want to share a little bit about one of my favorite design teams.  If you read this blog on a regular basis, it's no secret that I'm a big fan of bold color and design that infuses Palm Beach style with a touch of chinoiserie chic.

Parker Kennedy Living has become one of my favorite design teams in the last few years.  I was fortunate enough to be able to connect with them via instagram and social media networking and they are so warm and approachable.  Don't you love people like that?

The powerhouse design team is made up of Lance Jackson and David Ecton
I'm a huge fan of their style and their work and I know that you will be too.

I love that their signature style is both bold and cheerful!  Their interiors always seem fresh, yet also deeply rooted in the traditional.  A perfect mix, if you ask me.

I hope you'll take some time to follow them on instagram and check out their website for more inspiration!
