It's the holiday season...

with the whoop-de-do, and hickory dock, and don't hang up your sock!

Happy, happy! It's Christmastime, and I can't seem to stop humming this cheery tune written by Irving Berlin in 1942.

Looking forward to sharing some Modern Cottage style decorating ideas and inspiration in the weeks to come. Our lights are up outside and things are starting to feel festive around here. Thinking about breaking out the rest of the decorations and bringing home a tree before the weekend is up. Might be a little ambitious, not sure yet...getting some extra sleep may ultimately prevail :)

Modern gravy boat

We don't have a gravy boat but I've always wanted one...I think because I adore Thanksgiving and having a piece dedicated to that once-a-year gravy just seems so festive and fancy.  This one from West Elm is a cheerful little guy. In fact I think this whole collection of serveware is great. Clean and modern but with a softness to the lines. Here's to good food and a relaxing long weekend. Happy Thanksgiving!
P.S. I am trying these adorable pumpkin cheesecakes this year.......

Farewell, October

October went by in the blink of an eye... can hardly believe it will soon be Thanksgiving and then Christmas! Where did the year go? Looking forward to the holidays with our new little man in the mix. I'm already guzzling hot cocoa daily :) Hope you enjoy the next few weeks ... that little bit of peace before the full swing of the holiday season.

(And yes, we found more of our fave white pumpkins this fall)
