Merry Christmas!! and A Happy New Year!


Everything looks beautiful Karla - I would love to see it in person! Have a wonderful holiday. J


Your home is gorgeous! Have you ever thought of writing a home decor book? I love your kitchen remodel. A book club sounds fabulous! Where do you find the time to do all these things..
Merry Christmas!


Wow! What a beautiful home, Merry Christmas to you and yours! X


FABULOUS!!!!! That just about says it all!!

Donna Anderson

well i got whatever bug you have , whipped up lots of cookies , antiqued a dresser before going to bed and am now eying more stuff that needs tweaking. \thanks for the inspiration !

Janet Ghio

Beautiful table and I love the ambient light also. Dumb question, but it seems like the sugar scrub would be sticky--even though I know it must not be or people wouldn't want to use it. Merry Christmas karla!

Gypsy Rose

The lights are fantastic! Gorgeousness all around.

Karla Nathan

I thought the same thing about a sugar srub til I tried one from bath an body works. That got me hooked. They really do make your skin feel good. The coconut oil leaves a moisturizing coat on your skin.

Thanks, Kate! Actually I did write a book, but Ive never done a thing with it. I should get it out, reread it, tweak it and see if I still like it.

Your house (cottage) is gorgeous...truly magical. I love the tin ceilings...and the lace curtains! Your table and all the glitz looks fabulous. I'll be returning to take another peek from time to time. I just can't get enough of the unique beauty.


Oh, I would have liked to have been there! I love the idea of the little lights under lace on the buffet!

Karla, such a magical party! You must have had a lot of fairies, elves and the such visiting!


Everything looks wonderful! I never tire of seeing pictures of your new kitchen!!! (I can't wait until I can get mine painted white - it will still be small but at least it won't be so dark!)
I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

Margie Staniszeski

OMG just simply gorgeous! Your home is truly a Christmas Wonderland. TY for the 'recipes' for the salts and scrubs. I'm going to try them! What fun! Merry Christmas!

Folk Heart

You have such a great eye, and I am always inspired when I visit your blog. You've got what it takes!


It looks like you had a wonderful party! Your home is just beautiful. It was definitely a treat for the eye! Merry Christmas!

Carolyn Simpson

Your new kitchen/dining area is just so beautiful!

Karla Nathan

I have got to change book clubs! Mine didn't do a thing! lol

You have such a lovely home Karla. Reading would be a pleasure here!


Karla, your house with the white holiday theme is just gorgeous. Kim has nothing on your own "pretty"! Love all the lights and sparkle. I'm one of those who doesn't like bright light either. I go around with no lights on until even I realize I may just trip and break my neck if I don't turn on that switch. But when my Christmas trees are up, those lights are on all day long.


Glad that it was a great party and you got to enjoy your new kitchen fully!

Who wrote "The Mirror"? I tried to do a search for it and 1978, but don't think I found the right one at Amazon.com

Tashia Jacques

Hello! I love viewing all your holiday cheer...your house is very festive indeed. It was great seeing you at Kim's and spending the day creating away! Thank you.


So beautiful! Feel free to join our book club anytime! I love the bath salts idea -- I've seen recipes before, never tried them, but what a great party favor. I do the lights under fabric, too. It's so magical! I suspect it's all magical at your house -- the kind of magic that looks like it just happened and took hours (and a great eye!) to create!

Belated Christmas greetings and Happy Boxing Day!
