Wednesday Link Loving!

Sharing the weekend links early, so that I can celebrate Thanksgiving!  I am gearing up for my December Christmas crazy posting schedule (well crazy for me, I know other bloggers do that all the time, ha) - 5 days a week of DIY, GIVEAWAYS, recipes & gift guides! Clearly, I am excited :) Christmas is awesome.

Whew hoo, look what is back in stock for a limited time at Anthropologie! The perfect gold monogram mug!  Last year, they sold out, so get yours fast!  Image via my instagram

I love these geometric Christmas tree ornaments from Kristi Murphy!

Who knew a simple thyme sprig could make candles look so beautiful?

Use some temporary tattoos to make cool ornaments!

Homemade hot apple cider sounds so delicious and perfect right now.

Coco Cake Land's how to make meringue kisses are the prettiest shapes and colors ever.  It would be hard to eat them!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone and if you are not in US, I apologize for the break in blog posts!  I will be back Monday December 1st!

Moroccan Wedding Blanket Inspired Table Runner

This is very loosely based on the Moroccan Wedding Blankets that I just adore.  It has fringe and sequin, but I added additional trim I liked and used gold to match the look for my Thanksgiving table. The wedding blankets I have seen seem to only use silver sequins, but have you met me?  I love gold.

Sequin Trim
Fringe Trim
Individual Sequins
Tablecloth Runner (or fabric)
Fabric Glue
Books or heavy object to adhere glue
Cardboard (Or other surface underneath table runner to protect your surface from getting glued on)

I do not know how to sew, glueing the trim down evenly was time consuming and I imagine this would not be difficult to sew, but I really have no idea ;)

The instructions are simple, I did not include photos because it was just glueing.  After cutting the trim to fit the runner, I used clothespins to hold the trim to the runner as I glued down.  I laid books on top to help seal the glue.  The fringe did not have sequins in it, so I glued individual sequins onto the fringe.

The runner is on my brand new farmhouse dining table that I am in love with.  We purchased it from a woodworker here in AZ (Support local, small business!)  I had to say goodbye to my white dining table that I painstakingly redid myself over many, many nights when Kalia was a baby. Unfortunately, the white just did not mix with a toddler and we decided it was time for a change!

I think the runner gives it a soft romantic look and will go perfect for my white, gold and magenta themed Thanksgiving tablescape.

How gorgeous is this gift wrap party on 100 Layer Cake? And what a great idea to make gift wrapping fun- plan a party and drinks with it!

Upcycle some newspaper and make these gorgeous paper mache gold leaf bowls!
