Holiday Inspiration via Southern Home

Scot Meacham Wood

On Friday afternoon I stopped at the market to get a few things and ended up throwing a current copy of Southern Home magazine into my cart.  I love to peruse books and magazines and find it very relaxing.  My friend Mary-Anne stops by quite a bit and her request is always a glass of iced tea and a stack of current magazines.  When my mother comes to visit I see her reading all of my magazines as well and I find it so wonderful to see people enjoying a great stack of good items to read.  I think there is so much inspiration in print even though so many items are going digital.  For me a good magazine is a true treasure.

Yesterday while drinking coffee in front of the fire I opened the magazine and poured over it for hours.  If you have it available to you at your grocery store I suggest you snag one or order one online.  I loved it.  Since my husband isn't home and Thanksgiving is anything other than traditional this year I definitely expect to be decorating the house for Christmas this year this week. I have chosen a palate of red, green, blue, and pink with lots of plaid.  The good thing about the plaid is that it will work for the rest of November and then all of December as well.  I loved flipping the pages in the magazine and taking it all the goodness and have a few images to share with you here.  I see myself creating two very full trees, I want the ornaments to be stuffed in to the absolute maximum.  

How about some great inspiration ... I have already made a list of a few things I intend to include from the magazine.  Like I said, get your hands on one asap. Also, for some fun reading this morning check out this interview with one of my favorite designers, Scot Meacham Wood.  It is so good!

If you would like some extra inspiration I have adding images to my Christmas board on Pinterest ... and I think there are some great ones for you to check out.  

Happy Monday ... I hope your day is festive and full of joy!
