this feeling - year round...

ever have a feeling inside...warm fuzzies...genuine laughter...pure comfort?

a feeling you felt for just a moment but felt it so deeply you knew you never wanted it to go away?

i get these feelings sometimes when i come across inspired photos of home decor items.
it sounds silly...i know. but i think as a female, i'm always trying to convey that warm feeling in my home - so my children feel it - so that anyone who walks through my door can feel it.

these photos from stylemepretty (via grey likes weddings) took my breath away when i found them the other day.
because i found myself with that "feeling inside"...
i was moved to the point that i wanted to throw out every holiday decor item i have and re-create this mood...this ambience...

and although these are pictures of "holiday" items...
they convey a feeling i want in my house...not just through the holidays...but year round.




the wrapping...
the pompoms...
the glass...
the rosemary...
the mix of burlap, lace & yarn...

it's organic...
wholesome...
soft...
fluffy...
pretty...
comfy...

it's "home"...

what's "your" definition of "home"?
find what inspires YOU.
and surround yourself with whatever that is.

now...i'm off to finish holiday shopping & errands today.
looking forward to attending a company christmas party with j on saturday night.
and also looking forward to the fact that this is the girls' last day of school before holiday break. (i see gingerbread houses in the very near future)...*wink*
