Our house will be full of family this holiday season, so we’ve decided to pull out a different vintage tablecloth every day. Last night I set the table for brunch. Only four of us will be sitting down to French toast and Mimosas:

Do you ever get tired of perfect Pinterest homescapes? Bloggers that have it all together? Well now’s your day to feel relieved, normal and possibly even superior. Yes, my house is a creative disaster area right now. The December Sage show is rushing up FAST and I’ve got everything started, nothing finished. My dining room table looks like this:
