the just-right fabric for living room pillows

I agonized over the just-right fabric for the living room pillows. I even bought some dishtowels at Anthropologie that I was all set to butcher into pillows... But it wasn't until now that I found the perfect print. I wanted lovely pinks,tans and greens, pastel but muted and not too bright.

I was so pleased when my package arrived from purlsoho with my new Alexander Henry fabrics.

a little something (someone) under the tree

I decided I wanted a new Christmas tree this year. I really thought about getting a pink tree... but with a million pink ornaments, I thought it might be too much. So I got mini pink trees for our bedroom, and a tall skinny tree (called "The Twiggy") for the living room. Steven is busy setting up the tree so we can decorate it Friday.

Steven also gave me an early Christmas present over our Thanksgiving holiday... I don't think it would have been wise to leave it wrapped up in a box for a month...

Meet Tess the Boston Terrier! She is 3 1/2 months old and a total sweetie. She is already almost pottytrained!! Smart puppy!

I know, I didn't *need* a puppy... but I really wanted another little dog we could keep inside and really.. the pretty pink sweaters don't come in 100 pound dog size!
