Happy Friday! Thanks for hanging out with me this week. We had a fun getaway planned for this weekend, but had to cancel due to crazy weather. Now we’re going to be in town and it turns out I’m fine with it. Home sounds nice–this time of year can really rattle the nerves! New plans include holiday shopping, movies in bed, a bottle of bubbly, warm drinks and fires in the fireplace. Have a cozy weekend and tell the holi-drama to talk to the hand! xo

My big holiday giveaway finale is pretty epic! I know the incredible people who make or stock all these wonderful things I’ve picked out for this prize, so I feel connected to the stories behind where they came from and how they were made. For the New Year in 2014, one of my intentions/resolutions is to be more connected with friends, family, readers and my community–to be really in the moment with the people around me. Another is to be more open, which, for me, involves letting some dreams go in order for new possibilities to take shape. So, that ‘Let It Go’ banner has been really resonating with me. Happy Holidays, you guys. I’m so thankful to be getting to know you over the years. You’re all amazing! xo

I love the beautiful creations that Martina Thornhill has been making. I’ve been admiring her leather, indigo and ceramic works on Instagram and periodically checking her site to see if a shop has been added. It hasn’t been, but I was very happy to hear that my friend, Rachael, has some of Martina’s designs at her dreamy Portland shop, Demimonde. I want to go get one of the pretty indigo totes and I love that zippered leather pouch. More HERE.

I’ve been looking forward to this fun week! Over the past couple months I’ve been planning a bunch of dazzling Holiday Giveaways for each day this week through Thursday. You may recognize a lot of the items as things that I personally own or have posted or instagrammed. I had some very generous shops and makers help me put it all together, as well as a few prizes from me! I’ll post the first dreamy Holiday Giveaway shortly. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!! xx Jen
