A lot of people have asked for another post of what I bought myself recently and I finally had time to put it together today. Some things were Christmas presents to myself and others were items I purchased in the last few months. I can’t wear shoulder bags and tote bags with my Toteme winter […]

Pajama Party 2021

12 . 10 . 21

I’ve spent the whole week at home in my pajamas and realized I could use a few new pairs. They’re also fun for the whole family to wear to open presents on Christmas morning. If your family could use an upgrade on your sleepwear, I’ve picked out some of the cutest solids, prints and plaids […]

My final gift guide was delayed due to travel and holiday events. And also because of those events last week, I’m now at home nursing a cold. It’s the first time I’ve been sick since 2018 so I guess I was due. (I know it’s not Covid because I took a test.) If you haven’t […]

I was going through old post when I came across the beautiful Park Avenue apartment of Fernanda Kellogg and Kirk Henckels decorated for Christmas from the November/December 2016 issue of Veranda. I love the elegant details they’ve added to each room and thought it was definitely worth reposting. I’ve combined those photos with non-holiday photos from Architectural […]

Thank you for all the great feedback on my first two holiday gift guides. I’m sorry some things have already sold out but we’ve put together more than 40 new gift suggestions that are currently in stock that I think your friends and family will love. I love to start each of my gift guides […]

I know some people will think this holiday gift guide is too early and others will be excited because they can start shopping now. I’m posting earlier than usual because retailers are worried about shipping delays and since most people shop online each year. I like to mix up my gift guides for items for […]

One of my favorite Instagram friends Kimmie Noel is one of the most creative people I know. Last year, she made the most charming Scrooge ornaments to commemorate 2020, a scrooge of a year. She made me one as a gift that has the same colors as the middle Scrooge above and when I posted […]

This second holiday gift guide was supposed to be posted last Friday but I just didn’t have time to work on it before my weekend trip to the Mayflower Inn and Spa. I’m happy that so many of you enjoyed the first one and I hope your gift recipients will be happy too. The embroidered […]

I know some of you will think this holiday gift guide is too early and others will be excited so you can start shopping now. I’m posting a week earlier than usual because retailers are worried about shipping delays as more people than ever will be shopping online for gifts this year. Many friends and […]

Merry Christmas 2019

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas! XOXO, HC

If I had to award a top prize for holiday decorating, it would go to Brian Branton in Alexandria, Virginia. He goes all out each year decorating his historic home from 1808 with multiple Christmas trees, wreathes, and swags. I posted about him last year but he deserves another post since his home was just […]

I posted this historic house from 1845 in Essex, Connecticut designed by the lovely design duo Olasky and Sinsteden a few weeks ago. The home is featured in the November/December 2019 issue of New England Home but the photos online were a little small. Photographer Read McKendree and Max Sinsteden were very generous in sending me larger images to swap […]

An Elegant Christmas

12 . 16 . 19

I love festive and colorful Christmas decorations as much as anyone but I also appreciate quiet and elegant Christmas decorations. I came across the Park Avenue apartment of Fernanda Kellogg and Kirk Henckels decorated for Christmas in the November/December 2016 issue of Veranda and love the details they’ve added to each room. I’ve combined those […]
