Whew… it’s been a week! I hope you’ve enjoyed some of the Christmas spirit that has been going on around these parts because it’s not going away anytime soon.  The holidays are my favorite time of year and I’m going to pack as much in as possible.

This weekend we’re headed to a few holiday parties and I’m going to do a little decor work for a friend.  I am hoping to get enough time on Sunday to make a few batches of Christmas cookies as well.  What is on your agenda?

Have a FESTIVE Friday and weekend guys!

ONE Monday’s fresh prize; TWO Tuesday’s wrapped with flair; THREE Wednesday will bring sweet news; FOUR Thursday celebrates a season for lights; FIVE Friday is a ‘minted’ deal!

I hinted at it a week ago, but get ready for some exciting holiday cheer!  Next week, for the entire week, we’ll have a giveaway every single day. Monday through Thursday are still surprises (that I know you’ll love) and Friday I gave away already, as $200 to buy your holiday cards from minted.  I want you to be ready for it, because it’s big and you’ll only have 24 hours to enter!

Get your commenting fingers ready this weekend and I’ll see you back here on Monday!


Friday Faves 11.23

ONE Sydney Hale Co candles strike the perfect balance of good product and appealing packaging.  I love the classic, minimal label. $28; TWO after yesterday, you’ll want to write down all of those recipes.  Rifle Paper Co. hanging garden cards are $12 for a set of 12. (Hint: Give the written recipes back to family for Christmas).  THREE just popped in for a quick hello!  Hello pillow cover is $38 from Society Social; FOUR I love the simplicity of these canisters from West Elm.  Keep, Contain, Store range from $19-$39. FIVE personalized, but not in a cheesy way, this ‘casual poet’ tote from Ecolution is perfect for hauling around hostess gifts this season and your laptop the rest of the year; $155.


I barely survived my turkey coma last night and now I’m heading into work!  Although I wish I could take some more time to relax, I need to jump back in the game if I want to work off the mountain of food I ate yesterday.

I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful and filled with friends, family, and lot and lots of food!


Have a FABULOUS holiday weekend!


Friday Faves 11.16

Today is a special day because I’m posting eight of my faves for holiday entertaining over on The Girls of Lincoln Park!  The remaining four picks as well as all pricing and sources are over there, so check it out!


Later today, I’m heading to Lexington, Kentucky to meet up with a couple of friends who are driving up from Nashville.  We decided a half-way meet up would make for a nice visit, and a cozy boutique inn (sourced by my dear friend, Lacey) will make for an all around perfect weekend! I’m taking my camera so I can share some of the highlights with you next week.  Be sure to follow on @houseofearnest on instagram or twitter for live pics!

Have a great weekend, ya’ll! (I’m channeling my inner southerner already)


Friday Faves 11.9

ONE Roll Weave Storage Basket from Crate and Barrel is a steal at just $79 and has received rave reviews;  TWO one of my favorite stores on Etsy doesn’t disappoint with an inspiring and stylish piece of art – Let’s Move to the Mountains print is just $15 from In Haus Press; THREE the shine draws me to these Metallic Diamond Napkins, but the neutral palette keeps me wanting them (and they’re on sale!) $25 for 4 at West Elm; FOUR the prettiest Desk Set I’ve ever seen.  Walnut and Porcelain Desk Set from Farrahsit is $65; FIVE I almost don’t have words.  As if marshmallows weren’t already wonderful enough, Whimsy and Spice goes one step further by adding maple… Maple Marshmallows are just $6.50 for a dozen. SIX Piglet Placeholder set is too cute for words.  Just don’t let him catch you with ham on your plate. $29 for a set of six from Shop Ruche.


I’m loving today’s faves, guys.  True to my roots, there is a lot of neutral color here, but I think that is what makes it so comforting. I am really dying over the maple marshmallows and cannot wait to give them a try.

I’m having my fall harvest party this weekend and I’m so excited to show you the full event next week which includes some darling favors from one of my favorite brands, some easy and beautiful DIY projects, and, of course, some food! Be back here next Monday for photos from the event and a line-up of the projects you can do!

Have a BEAUTIFUL weekend!


Friday Faves 11.2

ONE Kate Spade card case prompting, ‘Let’s do Lunch’ to hold all of your namecards from other lunchmates. $20 from Bloomingdales. TWO Orange cinnamon candle where the wick is actually a piece of cinnamon! It’s bound to smell amazing. $30 from You Organic. THREE dip twig pencils are too cute to use… almost. $13 from Inkkit. FOUR mini milk creamers makes me smile and are the perfect touch when having a friend over for coffee.  $8.75 from Room for Emptiness. FIVE Bonjour retro art $17.25 from Edubarba; SIX pretty patterned woodgrain iphone skin, $12 from Field Trip; SEVEN letters and numbers stamps are almost as darling as the sweet box they come in.  $36 from Pink Olive.

I rounded up a few of my favorite things from the week, and did I ever tell you that every Friday morning when I put this post together I sing ‘These are a Few of my Favorite Things’ to myself.  Every Friday.  It didn’t help that I was listening to Christmas music this week as I finished up my Home Depot Style Challenge which involves me decorating my dining room using the latest and greatest from Home Depot.  I am prepared to show you a little sneak peak next week and will be doing a few DIYs that I did for the shoot throughout the next two months!  I’m excited to share, and I hope you’re excited to see it all!

Have a FABULOUS Friday out there, guys.


Friday Faves 10.26

ONE Spicy apple tea lights from Terrain are definitely on their way to my house.  A little hint of spice in each room is perfect for fall. $12 for six; TWO I’ve always wanted an antler chandelier and this one is particularly appealing with its smooth lacquered finish.  It’s modern meets rustic at its finest. $1550 from Shop Horne; THREE Bright walnut botanical print drawing is finished with a scroll style frame made of ash and is just $20 from Ikea; FOUR I fell in love with this bar cart about two months ago and still cannot stop thinking about it.  I think it needs to find a home in my home! Libations bar cart is $599 from Crate and BarrelFIVE I love a cute pitcher that can double as a simple, modern vase. $25 from House and Hold by Design House Stockholm; SIX I love the look of this ‘Man-orah’ made by Frick and Frack Scraps for just $27.


I’ve never been so happy it’s Friday.  I got in from China at around midnight on Monday night and went right into work on Tuesday morning for a full week of crazy.  Matty and I have deliberately put nothing on the schedule for this weekend to recover and I couldn’t be more happy about it.  I’m planning to unpack, do laundry, get caught up on a few projects that have been put off, and possibly relax.

It’s going to be a beautiful weekend in our area and I cannot wait to take advantage.  What’s on your short list for the weekend?


Have a FABULOUS Friday and weekend, guys!


Friday Faves 10.18

ONE Teak spreaders from Muhs Home scoop, spread or stir.  Now, that’s my idea of a multipurpose tool! $18 for four. TWO Sahara pillow has the prettiest golden tassels and I’m loving tassels right now, $166 from Pure HomeTHREE handmade stoneware teapot is a perfect fresh addition to your cool fall nights.  $88 from Gone to Pot Texas FOUR Octagon coffee table from Horchow has interesting lines and a slightly rustic look.  The glass top takes up less visual space and is good for small spaces, $899. FIVE delightfully sweet, but still fun and graphic, these dessert plates from Pure home are perfect for brunch or dessert.  $48 for a set of 6.


This weeks round up is full of pretty little things I found around the interwebs this week, and there is no doubt that I’ll try to DIY some tassels on a pillow soon after seeing the Sahara pillow (I love it, but close to $200 for a pillow is a little nuts).

Today is my last day in the Shanghai area and I head off to Hong Kong tonight to meet up with some friends and have a little ‘Erin’ time.  I just love the girls I was traveling with, but it’s always nice to be on your own as well, exploring a city and going at your own pace. Keep up on Twitter and Instagram and I’ll show you some of the fun I get into on the other side of the world!




Friday Faves 10.12

ONE  vintage southwestern basket is a beautiful option for unique wall art, $42 from ethan ollie; TWO tiny vintage safety matches from Sweden, $4.50 from Just Smashing Darling; THREE Aran knit hot water bottle cover, $37 from patmellor; FOUR boubon barrel cured Noble Maple Syrup from Terrain, $38; FIVE birch paper straws from Garnish, $4 for 50. SIX Salt cellar with cork lid by Vitrified Studio, $35.


You can tell I’m yearning for the cooler weather of home this time of year? I wanted to share these cozy faves with you this week because I’ve been so drawn toward earthy textures and warm colors.  I bought the birch straws yesterday and have plans to use them during the cocktail hour of my fall dinner party.  I can’t wait to get home and really get into the fall spirit – prepare for the party, turn on the heat, start wearing thick socks and have a fire in the fireplace.

While I’m here, however, I still have a ton of great fall posts lined up, so come back next week for some DIYs, a trio of recipes, and some decor inspiration!


….and don’t forget to follow on twitter and instagram for updates from China!









Friday Faves 10.5

ONE These salad servers from The Curiosity Shoppe at Target are a conversation piece and for just $15, the price can’t be beat either! TWO a little pouch for travel, home, make-up, or office, $49 from Moose Design Bags; THREE personalized stationery is anything but traditional in a pretty pop of orange and bold lettering, $25 for a set of 16 from Silhouette Blue; FOUR subtle color dipped candle holders from Wind and Willow home are a perfect gift (for someone else or for yourself!) $16 for a set of four.  FIVE dotted linen napkins are neutral, but really fun for any season, $12 from Anthropologie; SIX ‘skedaddle’ knob in beautiful brass deserves a place on a traditional piece of furniture for the perfect juxtaposition, $14 from Anthropologie.


It’s been a long week, and boy am I happy it’s the weekend.  My weekend is probably going to be just as hectic, but I’m ok with it as long as I get to spend some time outside and with Matty. I plan on doing some apple picking, a little shopping, a lot of crafting and DIYing, and finish the Christmas project I started last weekend.

How will you spend your first weekend in October?


p.s. Matt bought the new Mumford & Sons CD and I just love it.  I’ve been listening to it all morning! Definitely check it out!
