1. Hard to believe it's December and Christmas is only three weeks away! If you are looking for any gift ideas, you can find all of my gift guides here.

2. Yesterday on my IG stories I shared some of my recent purchases! I can't get enough of this men's henley, my new boots, or this coat...

3. This little ring is under $40 and so pretty.

4. I've had this candle in my kitchen for over a month now and there is truly nothing better. It's huge and the scent really fills the room with the holiday spirit... but it's not overwhelming. Did I mention it's only $25?

5. I found this little Massachusetts trading shop online with the cutest ornaments... I love the lighthouse and the lobster! Does anyone else miss Henri Bendel's?! They had the cutest little ornaments every year around Christmas time. 

6. So then I went down an ornament internet rabbit hole... a few discoveries:

-- THESE! Sherpa! Ornaments! Adorable!

-- This initial ornament would make a cute stocking stuffer or a cute addition to a wrapping job on a cozy gift.

-- Why am I obsessed with mushrooms and all things fungi?? hahah. I love this ornament.

7. And I just have to share this gorgeous tree skirt.

8. I just started this book and I am into it so far.

9. This week on the blog I shared my November Favorites. The December mood board will come soon!

10. This weekend is my Grandmother's funeral. In lieu of flowers, our family is asking for anyone who feels so inclined to donate instead to the Rhode Island Ovarian Cancer Alliance. My Grandmother is truly the kindest and most selfless woman I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She was hilarious, patient, caring, and so much more. My grandmother believed a cocktail is “good down to the last drop,” the word fabulous should be used in every sentence, black raspberry chocolate chip is the best ice cream, and no place is better than Newport (except for Ireland). Clearly, we had a lot in common ;) 

I love her and miss her already.



  1. Hi Frannie,

    I just wanted to let you know that the link for the RI Ovarian Cancer Society takes you to the blogger homepage. So sorry about your Grandmother, sending you and your family love!

    1. Thank you for letting me know! I just fixed it.


Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment, I love hearing your thoughts! xo
