Betsy’s Wishlist 2013

By

1 Freaking Dress I need a party for this. Too bad my only parties this season are gonna be for the Oncology Ward 2 Santa Barbara Vino Train I love a quick adventure on rails, adding wine to the destination is that much sweeter. I’ll take the Dome Car please. 3 SkillShare Gift Certificate There are so many courses available. I’d like to jump in on a few, to learn things from styling my bookshelves to the art of mastering my Sony Nex3. 4 Fat Knit Infinity Scarf This is always a readily accepted gift in my world, the softer the better…. 5 Cool iPhone Case from Mara Hoffman 6 Pretty much anything from this store, but particularly the Toto T. Jeff and I love this band, and I know that Sarah would too, since she listens to 70s soft rock playing through her phone all day long in the office and she kills it at the 1990s Songburst game….remember that one?…

my dollhouse

Pass it Down

By

I decided that I would like to give my oldest daughter DC my dollhouse that my grandfather Craig built for me when I was a kid. A dollhouse was actually on DC’s list in addition to the hideous hunk of fuchsia plastic the Dream Castle. But I can’t complain because I wanted a Barbie dream house so badly as a child, Kristin you know what I’m talking about here. After sitting in the my parent’s garage for almost 20 years, whaaatttt! It actually emerged from the depths in great shape. I guess I’d call it a Southern Colonial. The tan and brown aren’t exactly happening and it I thought it would be a pretty quick and easy task to give it a paint job. After some consideration I decided that I would paint it the original exterior color scheme for the Indiana project. Ben Moore’s Iron Mountain and a light…

Christmas “Wist”

Christmas “Wist”

By

Whether you like or not the holiday season is approaching. Usually sometime after Halloween I began to accept it and get my mind in gear. In case you haven’t noticed a lot of bloggers have “Wist” Lists scrolling or stationary on the sidebars of their blogs, TEOT included. I use the Wist List far more than Betsy does and I didn’t think she would mind so I made TEOT’s Wist List in to my own personal Christmas list. Ha! So Dan, Mom, Grandma, whoever the lucky party is that draws my name, admirers, friends my gift wishes are moving along on the right of your screen. If some of you are just curious about what I’m wishing for have a look. To get a closer view at some of the items simply click on the image and follow the link to site.

It Takes a Village

It Takes a Village

It takes a village to raise a little home decor blog… I arrived at my real job this morning, first checking real job email then TEOT mail.  I found that my TEOT mailbox had been slightly blown up with loads of suggestions from three different readers. One reader suggested Etsy seller, Bohtieque, as a great source for an affordable gift.  if you have a big family or a lot of friends to buy for, you might consider Bohtieque’s huge selection of custom mailing labels. Wouldn’t this be a great gift for your child’s teacher? Bregan from The Lead Chandelier emailed us and directed our attention to the beautiful and popular Julia dress by Calypso that has seriously been discounted. She suggested wearing it for a holiday party which I think is a good idea but I also think its a great winter getaway dress or perfect for the summer. You can find this dress on Ebay too! And finally a gift wish…

I’m a little crazy about loaning my books…ok more than crazy I refuse to do it.  It’s because I’ve done it before and those books were never returned.  I was just looking for a really fantastic book called Wolf Whistle and I have since discovered that I used to own this book. So maybe a Personal Library Kit  might make me feel a little better about sharing. @ Knock Knock
