Winter Inspired Whites & Instagram

Ok, a second post in two days? Yes, I know that's an all time record considering I haven't blogged on a regular basis lately.

Which leads me to what I wanted to say ~ if you are on Instagram, feel free to follow me on that site if you have an account. You'll pretty much be able to see what I'm up to on a {nearly} daily basis when it comes to school, life, and decor. ;)

My kids pretty much persuaded me to pull down the autumn decorations and put up some Christmas decor, so here are just a few images that I'd thought I'd share with you.

Most of these are from my Instagram account (images taken from my phone) ~ enjoy!





Yep, a little tree went up. :)





Enjoying a little nautical inspired afterglow.





Love this simple silver metal tree decoration.





A shiny vintage ornament atop a old English meat pot. I have a ton of meat, mustard & marmalade pots, so thought I'd put them to use this holiday season. :)

Well that just about concludes my brief interlude of my Winter Inspired Whites (I say "inspired" because the weather can still get to as warm as 100 degrees over here!)!

But before I let you go, I just had to put a shout out to my hubby.

Apparently, I didn't realize that he was paying attention to the fact that I had been eyeing this book from French Larkspur for some time now. It was such a pleasant surprise and a sweet treat to receive this in the mail!





Well, that is all for now! Hope you are enjoying the weekend so far (and the 3 day Veteran's Day weekend here in the states). :)


XOXO's,
Jessie

Hi Jessie - I was so happy to see a post from you and a visit over at my blog! I'm not on Instagram or FB (low-tech I guess), but it's nice to see your Christmas spirit starting here.
And awwwww...what a sweetheart your hubby is!!
Enjoy this season - your home is already looking very JDL inspired!
