I’m Dreaming of a Bright Christmas … and New Year!

By Christa Sorauf

This year, my neighborhood sold luminaries as a fundraiser for the swim team so it made for a very festive Sunday night. We had a bonfire and the kids made s’mores while the adults enjoyed mulled wine…

The Best Gift – FAUX SURE!

By Christa Sorauf

We love anything super luxe and soft to layer in a room and that’s why we’re head over heels for our partner FABULOUS FURS. We often use these blankets in interiors and we buy them for family and friends every holiday season. In fact, we’re getting ready to place an order now so if you would like to give this gift of comfort and joy, just let us know and we’ll include one or two for you. Last year, I gave my 15 year old son this faux gray chinchilla and it was his favorite gift…
