We are in the home stretch of October, and for parents with younger kids, I wish you a happy and safe Halloween. As for me and my crew, this will be the first year without family plans. Such is the life of an almost empty nester. Don’t feel bad for me though! I’ve got lots of fun holiday coverage that I think you'll like! Everything from helpful gift guides to home decorating to baking!  Let's cue the holiday playlist and talk about a lovely book I recently received to review: French Country Cottage Christmas! Want to win a copy? Read until the end of this post for details.

Holiday Inspiration Found!

French Country Cottage Christmas Book

One of the ways I invite each new season into my home is by changing up my tablescapes. I do this by adding seasonal touches like flowers in pretty vases and containers, textural items like raffia and ribbons and of course lots of color found in nature during the current season. When I received an invitation to work with Hy-Lite acrylic craft blocks, I immediately started thinking of festive, seasonal vases. I received three complimentary Hy-Lite acrylic craft blocks that I used to make a spring, summer, and fall vase that I hope will inspire you to try this fun DIY.

Middle Tennessee got down- right cold last night, bottoming out at 30. It will get down to 23 tonight, which means my outdoor gardening days are done for another season. I will miss my flowers and greenery until next growing season. I won’t fret too much since I have the perfect chilly night companion- ©The Leaf Supply Guide to creating your Indoor jungle book by Lauren Camilleri and Sophia Kaplan.  If you love houseplants and consider them a necessary part of your home’s decor, then read on to discover all the beautiful rooms and design ideas shared in this book. Plus, because I ladore my readers,  I’m hosting a giveaway too!

I participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Urbini. While I will receive a gift card to thank me for my time, all opinions and love of babies and nurseries are my own.

I can still remember the loving care my husband and I put in to setting up our daughter’s nurseries.  Time and care was spent on every aspect of this special room; from the paint color, to the softest of linens, to the color and functionality of the crib.  Finding just the right mix of furniture and accessories can be very time consuming, so I was thrilled to work with Urbini to share their Nursery contest with you!

You may recognize the Urbini name because of their line of highly rated strollers and stylish baby gear; and now they have added a new line of nursery furniture to their offerings, including wooden cribs like the beautiful Walnut crib in the photo above.

To showcase this new line, Urbini created the Urbini Dream Nursery Instagram contest where one lucky winner will have the designer of the new Urbini nursery furniture, Rachel Dacks, come to their home to provide them an Urbini Dream Nursery, including Urbini furniture and decor!
