sweet, vintage, reminiscent. these are all things that come to mind as i look through catherine nunnally’s photography. as simple as one of her photograph’s may be, it’s amazes me how it can completely envelop me with a sense of being there. i can feel myself shivering in the cold as i look up at the icy chair lift. similarly, i can see myself sitting in the warmth of a green summer day as i spy this little brown bird. i love photography that evokes feeling, and catherine’s work certainly does that.

hello, friends! i want to introduce to you the world of old charm. michael is an innkeeper and creative and is bringing you today inspirations for a handmade christmas.

kraft paper wrapped gifts
inspiration #1: wrapped up in kraft. wrap gifts in brown kraft paper (or grocery bags), then cut a small piece of coordinating gift wrap to create a sleeve to fit around the package. use your fabric stash to tear pieces of fabric to use as ‘ribbon’ for the package and create a bow. finally, wrap with heavy twine and attach some artificial (or real) pine and your tag. as the gifts look uniquely custom, they’ll never know just how affordable it was!

christmas hot chocolate
inspiration #2: hot chocolate vials. these little plastic vials (50ml) hold exactly enough mix for one cup of hot chocolate! genius. fill the single serve vials with homemade hot chocolate mix and give as a small gift or party favor during the holidays.

ornament decor
inspiration #3: ornament decor: create a vintage centerpiece by repurposing old ornaments and candlesticks!  easily thrifted (or found in your grandmother’s attic), the supplies for this centerpiece are a cinch. give your candlesticks a coat of white paint and top them off with your vintage ornaments. arrange on a pretty tray, round mirror, vintage find (like this old washing machine agitator) or simply place them in the center of your table.

christmas dressed in plaid

vintage red wool plaid blanket ($47), fleece earwarmers ($18), snowy swag ($70), bears love flannel shirts ($20), festive wool coasters ($12), paddington iphone case ($40), pinstripe pillow cover ($16.50), weathered stack ($20)

in moving to colorado, the mister and i only assumed that we were in for a long chilly winter ladened with snow. welp, not yet. my hometown in north carolina is covered in inches,  and our high today is 65°F!  i’m sure we’ll be in for it eventually, but right  now i’m feeling awfully left behind. we’ll be going back home for christmas, so here’s to hoping for a snowy cozy christmas, dressed in plaid.
