Psst: It’s official. Anthropologie has officially taken over eastern Massachusetts. Their next store will open at the Burlington mall on December 14th — this is now their 4th store in the greater Boston area!

D*S Gift Guides!

Grace over at Design*Sponge pulled together some excellent gift guides, I especially like the Alba clock she found over at Generate. It’s fun to look through all the items in her round up, an endless treasure chest. Nice work, Grace!

Seems she’s on a roll with several guides in various price ranges, so if you haven’t already, click on over.

See you on Monday!

I’m so embarrassed. Having just returned from two months abroad, I completely forgot that Thanksgiving is this week. People keep calling to wish me a happy t-day and I’m thinking they are rushing things because Thanksgiving is on Sunday. But no, I’m wrong. It’s like tomorrow.

With that being said, I’ll resume posting on Monday, November 26th with more discounts from our sponsors, a few home tours and interviews, and other goodies so stay tuned. Enjoy your family time and remember, egg nog isn’t half as good without rum.

2 oz light rum (or more, you little devil, you.)
6 oz milk
1 tsp powdered sugar
1 whole egg
nutmeg

Shake all ingredients (except nutmeg) with ice and strain into a pretty glass. Sprinkle nutmeg on top and serve. Need I say more?

Winner: Domino Decorating Contest!

Scrappy Girl told me that the winner of the Domino decorating contest is Catherine from Mill Valley, CA – additional photos of her home just went live on their website. She won $10,000 – can you imagine winning that? I wonder what she’s going to do with the prize money. What would YOU do? I think I’d completely decorate two rooms in my home from top to bottom.


“As a single mother I waited 17 years to convert two small bedrooms into my large master bedroom. I did all the demo and hired handymen to install the closets, doorways and white floor. I then painted, stenciled, embossed, and/or glazed every inch of wall space and built the gas fireplace surround myself. I reinvented a 1960s Hollywood vanity, nightstands, small chandeliers and French chair with paint, decoupage and silver leaf. I made and painted the silk organza curtains (items are not pictured). The goal was to create a Parisian-like sanctuary to enjoy after a long working day.” – Catherine


Are you happy with the winner? If this contest was up to you, who would have won?
