HOPES & DREAMS | ’tis the season!

amandamacyhall merry and bright handmade holiday sign

Merry Christmas! The Hall’s have begun decking the halls! {I’ll get tired of that, right?} The mantle is bothering me, so I am focusing my efforts elsewhere. These two gold frames flank our fireplace and were my first-ever score from the innagural Country Living Festival in Atlanta. I spotted them immediately and carried them around with an accomplished smirk on my face all day. The size is just right, the thick detailed frame makes such a statement, and the beautiful patina gold glows against our deep gray walls.

These well-loved frames housed the most basic of #basic “DIY art” that you can imagine for well over three years – a hand painted H on burlap. {what happened?!} Taking hold of a moment of energy and a glimpse of inspiration, I {carefully/FINALLY} ripped out that tired burlap and replaced them with these two seasonal sayings. Gold sharpie and printer paper at its best!

Our beloved coffee table basket {the year-round home to magazines, beautiful books, an ever-changing collection of candles and an impressive assortment of matchstick} is feeling a bit more seasonally appropriate perched atop a dining table runner {folded in the middle to shorten its length} and stuffed with Christmassy garland. Hashtag details.

Up next… our Christmas tree & dining room table!
