After a couple of days of looking at our buffet that I decorated last week, I couldn't help but think how uninspired, uninspiring and just plain dull it seemed. And then I remembered these cute little bottle brush trees I found at the Tar-jay (2 for a buck!). And I had a big "duh" moment and started all over again.
So out went the old and in went the new. I was working with what I had-- because who wants to go shopping with two kids the week before Christmas? A crate of clementines and a coupla dozen candy canes.
That's a little better now, don't you think?
This season has been a hard one--wrapping up the last season of Hoot Baby and preparing for our spring collection, dealing with illness, another hospital stay for the baby (he's fine now!) and many, many too-long and rainy days. There's starting to be a little light at the end of my tunnel, and I do so, so love designing, which is the phase I'm entering (ever so briefly-- it's the most fun, but also the most quickly-passing part of my job)
But for now, I'm going to do my best to enjoy everything the season has left to offer-- and maybe just a few more
slices bites of dessert!
