Sarah’s Christmas Wishlist

Hey there!

We are going to get into the gift guides for you and your friends, based on YOUR personality types soon. But Sarah and I are following our annual tradition, sharing with one another our own personal wishlists. Maybe something below will spark your interest as well!

Here is what is on Sarah’s Christmas Wishlist.

 

sarahs-christmas-wishlist

 

Enamel Pendant Lamp  | Cocoon Dress  |  Kitchen Sideboard Overhaul  |  Abstract Art  |  Platform Sneakers |  New Hardware  |  Heretic Exotic Fragrance  |  Wrap Collar Coat  |  Splatter everything, but especially dishes

 

Sarah’s mix is a solid one and naturally includes a “Santa please” for a Kitchen Sideboard overhaul! She bought an Ethan Allen sideboard from the 80s maybe 3 yrs ago. It has nice clean lines and it is going to paint up nicely it just needs a little modification by a carpenter. She’ll need new hardware and a pretty enamel pendant in “White Please,” to pull her Kitchen makeover together.

The abstract art will finish the look too. She’s attracted to it and it’s affordable, so it’d be a great gift…. *elbow Dan.

As is her custom, she’s found a pretty camel coat for the cold season, and she’ll be dressing that down with some fancy sneakers with a lift. She loves coats. Especially those with wrap collars or military buttons.

How about that Indian handstitched cocoon dress? Is that in or out? She’s into it.  For her stocking, she’s into exotic fragrances, the whole Heretic line sounds interesting.  And lastly, splatters are good, but especially on dishes. The little blue splatter nesting bowl collection would create a perfect vignette on the bathroom counter, plus a lovely spot to corral jewelry.

 

 

We’ve got more gift ideas headed your way. Come on back and see us for more ideas tomorrow!

Betsy’s Wishlist for Christmas

Hi friends,

So, before we bust out the gift guides for you and your friends, based on YOUR personality types, Sarah and I like to follow our annual tradition and share with one another our own personal wishlists. Maybe something below will spark your interest as well!

Here is what is on Betsy’s Christmas Wishlist.

 

Betsy's Christmas Wishlist

Traveling Back Pack  |  Anthropologie Necklaces  |  Cocktail Glasses  |  Over the Knee Boots  |  642 Things to Write About  |  Horse Art  |  Chunky Scarf  |  Vinyl Me Please

 

I’m leaning a bit poetic/traveler this year and I think it came out pretty Betsy-ish. A 1998 wish list might have looked somewhat similar to this, except trade the vinyl subscription service for a Colombia House or BMG CD club. Do you remember the one with a huge sheet of stamps that you would tear out!?

The most practical of all of the items above is that crazy backpack. My airline status has blown up with all of cross country travel I have been doing. It’s time to upgrade my carry on to something super practical. This backpack seems like it could be the answer.

This year, over the knee boots in a size 9, big chunky scarves and lariat necklaces are not a bad idea. I hope you can hear me Heffe! ;)

Everything else is a “would be nice” type indulgence. It’s easy to want things! Things to get me into the creative spirit, from inspiring art, books and music to art supplies and writing prompts. ;)

Tune in tomorrow for Sarah’s Christmas Wishlist, which is sure to be classic and on point, as always! Can’t wait.

Grateful

thank-you-for-instagram-from-the-estate-of-things

Hi friends and family,

This is one of my most favorite holidays. It’s nice to be mindful for what is good in our lives, and it’s always a wonderful thing when you get to eat and indulge and laze around with loved ones in someone’s home.

We have so much to be thankful for this year! Our NC brick and mortar shop hasn’t been open too long but I’m still pinching myself. Thanks so much to you, for every click, comment, like, follow, purchase, review. To new relationships, online, in town and abroad. We are meeting so many wonderful people and learning so much and we are so grateful to every other home lover out there like us, that finds something meaningful in the little world that we are creating.

I’d also like to take this moment to say Thanks to Sarah! What a great friend and partner. I love working with you. You make me laugh, you inspire me to make my life at home more beautiful and thoughtful.

To all of you, I hope you have the best of days and that your hearts are full like mine!

What to Wear: Holiday Shopping

What to wear this weekend, when you go out and score double rewards 2X points with your AMEX card on Shop Small Saturday.

what-to-wear-holiday-shopping

Madewell Army Jacket  |  Black Mid-Rise Pant  |  Floppy Hat  |  R. Riveter Crossbody Bag  |  TEOT Earth Bracelets  |  Fuzzy Sweater  |  Black Booties  |  TEOT Indigo Scarf

Loving the army green, black & blush color combo with organic textures in leather and African indigo! And you know that mid-rise is where it’s at. Especially after all the Turkey and stuffing we ate! 

We couldn’t be more stoked about this cross body bag by our friends at R. Riveter.

You may be familiar with the company. They were featured on Shark Tank and they have the coolest story.

Each bag is hand sewn by a “riveter,” one of the companies’ seamstresses. All Riveters are Military Wives that work from home.Life for the Military family is often uprooted from Station to Station and this is a wonderful job opportunity for the lifestyle. They can take their job along with them.

Southern Pines has a huge military culture with Fort Bragg nearby. Many of the military families choose to settle in SoPi for its quaint culture. To have such a cool company on the same shopping strip as TEOT is a joy and an honor. We’re so into what they are doing!

In other brief news:

Our Holiday Shopping Event starts now. Enter HOLIDAYS in the coupon code for FREE SHIPPING.

Southern Pines customers can note the HOLIDAYS discount in the shop for 10% off their entire order.

Tis the season, and we hope you’ll think of us while gifting.
