All About Home #169: Welcome to November

Hello Friends and Welcome to the 
All About Home Link Party!

When that calendar page turned to November I know many of us jumped off the sofa and ran for the Christmas tubs... yes I know, even me. I'm doing a hybrid Christmas this year. I'll share more later what that's looking like. I mentioned this once before at the party, but our first grandbaby is due sometime late November to mid December. The arrival date is fuzzy, but that little sweetie is ready to go, so we're trying to anticipate her making a surprise debut! 

Thanks so much for coming by and sharing all the fun stuff you're up to. Amber and I appreciate you all taking the time to join in on the party! We're going to have a fun time this next 2 months with Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year on the horizon!

Amber and I are excited to be hosting this weekly party
 that celebrates All Things Home.
We love to see what you're up to on Your blogs,
so please join in and share your inspiration.

Like I mentioned earlier, I knew I might be short on time to decorate for a traditional Christmas look this year, so I'm going with a more neutral natural cottage look with some Christmas trimmings. Early in the week I shared a remake of a wonderful wooden tote on the farmtable dressed up for Thanksgiving. Later I shared tips for transitioning to Christmas from Thanksgiving and Fall. 

Amber is sharing a wonderful look back at a Vintage Dining Room for Thanksgiving

Here are some of the fun seasonal links from last week...

Pumpkin Bread is one of my all time favorite Fall and winter breads. CoCo dressed up her yummy recipe with a lovely printable wrapper for a wonderful gift presentation.

These are so adorable along with Julie's Velvet Mushrooms. These have been on my "to-do" list for a bit. I need to get busy!

If you've been following Rita for this last year, you'll know she's been doing an extensive landscape makeover of her new/old cottage. She has amazing knowledge and I'm always in awe of her eye for design.

Penny uses lovely pastels throughout the year and seasons. Today she's sharing Christmas in her studio with a beautiful pink robed Santa. and an adorable giraffe assistant.
