Thank You and Have a Wonderful Christmas!

I just wanted to wish all of my friends, family, customers, and blog readers a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Living in Scranton has been such a blessing and the people that have supported me has been overwhelming. Four years ago when I began House & Life, it was such an uncertain time for me not knowing how it was going to be received by the community. I've been so lucky to have gained the support of so many people of this great city. Thank you!

And to the wonderful people around this country and world for that matter that have been reading this blog and commenting, you've made me feel like I really have a point of view that is fresh and interesting. I so appreciate it.

Please enjoy your family and friends this upcoming week and I wish you all the best in the upcoming New Year. I can't wait to start blogging again.

Holiday Fav!

I was able to find one 2t of this adorable dress featured in Gap's Holiday Ad campaign. Amanda Peet's daughter Francis looked so cute in it, so I searched for it. And I have to say, its worth it! The hood is lined and the quality is really there. Grab one if you can!

Brass Tax

Brass accents seem to be in the back of my head and in every designer's black book these days. My friend Pink Wallpaper has a great post on the resurgence of brass in home design, and how we all can't believe we are loving this "trend" (hardly!). Brass is back, baby! Think a sleek kitchen with that fabulous chicken wire on a painted hutch. Jen Davis, we've been cooking up a place to use that treatment for sure!

Well here is the big reveal of our new project and home in Scranton. It's a lovely three story in need of some major TLC. So I'm asking for some color opinions. Right now I'm leaning towards a flannel grey body with some very creme trim, and a lipstick red front door! Please offer your thoughts and some other ideas for color. Gigi looks so sweet and relaxed in her stroller. She has no idea what we are in for! I'll keep you posted.

Skipping Hippos Ponchos

For our Scranton friends that read the blog, Skipping Hippos have just been replenished at the shop. And for those of you out of town, these adorable ponchos make for such a cute gift! They are so easy to get on and off, and the fleece make them really practical. Gigi has one in red!
