We usually start our Season of Giving around December 1st, so please forgive me for being a bit late this year.  Thanksgiving was late, and that threw me off a bit.  Plus, the kids generously shared a nasty cold with me and I've spent more time in bed sleeping than I have since college! If you're … [Read more...]

It's time to get started with our third annual "A Season of Giving" here at 11 Magnolia Lane.  This is one of my favorite parts of the Christmas season.  It can be far too easy for me, as a decorator and a blogger, to get wrapped up in making my house look like a Pinterest board or a magazine photo, … [Read more...]

Over the past few years Christmas has taken on a life of its own in our home.  I’ve have to admit that I have gotten caught up in all the hustle and bustle of the holiday that I find myself extremely stressed out by mid- December.  I am not sure if the stress comes from all the buying, spending, … [Read more...]
