  4. Julia,

    Let me say, the room photographed is just lovely. πŸ™‚ May I ask where your coffee table is from? No kidding, I have a disco ball in my shopping cart but would buy a smaller one if I could replicate your coffee table look.

    Be well,
    Kenna

  15. Hi Julia, wish you and yours a beautiful new Year 2014! πŸ™‚
    I’m sorry to hear about you needing to purchase a new hot water heater, that’s not an expense anyone wants or needs at this time of the year, I hope this new year will bring you only happy and beautiful things to your family πŸ™‚ & oh! I like everything I see in your pictures, the disco ball; I love it very much & the tiger is gorgeous too; you lucky girl! I’m very happy to hear you had a wonderful Christmas, I saw some of your pictures on Facebook these last days.
    Also, sorry I haven’t been visiting your blog lately, I haven’t been in front of a computer for a while and I did miss all the December blogging-fun, today is my first day in front of my computer reading blogs and I must admit that I have missed reading your posts and other bloggers post as well! πŸ™‚ wish you again a very Happy New Year !!!! πŸ™‚
    btw, don’t you worry about Jen (Made by Girl), I really don’t think she is upset about it, on the opposite, it shows you read her blog and that you love her style too & I remember when you posted about it, you did mention where your inspiration came from! πŸ™‚

  16. So sorry about the unexpected repairs. Do you have a home warranty. We have one and save a ton of money on repairs. Last month our furnace had issues and they came out and repaired it with only a $50 deductible. On a happier note, your home always looks so lovely. I love your Christmas gifts. Hubby was so good to you!!

  17. Happy new year, friend!! You got some AMAZING presents this year!! And I’m so sorry to hear about the darn house expenses popping up! And in terms of your painting…imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! Don’t worry about it! πŸ™‚

  18. Best post I’ve seen today! I am so glad to hear the pop-up shop was a success – even though I knew it would be. I love those sweet barrel chairs in front of the French doors. Did you move something out to make room for them? And finally, congrats to your beautiful talented daughter! Merry Christmas, Living room with Christmas decoration

  19. ugh–sorry about all the unexpected expenses! We had to buy a new hot water heater a few weeks ago, too; it’s such a non-fun thing to spend a bunch of money on. Looks like you made out pretty well with the presents, though πŸ™‚

  20. I totally feel you on the broke-ness. Ugh. This barn is costing more than building a new house. πŸ˜‰

    Love all your beautiful things. Especially that disco ball.

  21. Ugh sorry for the string of bad luck. I hate when expenses pile up especially when they are on unfun things. Blah. Looks like you had a great Christmas though! Love that rug!
