I'll admit it: I'm the worst when it comes to having a very, very specific idea of what my holiday decor/gift wrap/dessert is going to look like, and going after it full-force. But while I might have visions of white and silver wintery woodland cookies dancing in my head, if the 7-year-old gets his heart set on making Christmas squid, moths, and carrots, who am I to argue? Squid are the best...
I'll never forget when my then two-year-old burst out with the words "I want some handsome prince." WHAT??!@?#? From whence did this concept even arise, and at such an early age? Do you have a super girly girl despite your most fervent efforts to create a well balanced environment? Well I have the perfect library list for you.

Flo and Wendell may be stars of a new children's book by William Wegman, but they're not letting the fame go to their heads. You may picture Wegman's iconic dogs as pampered pooches being fed beef bonbons all day long. No sir! They are salt (lick)-of-the-earth types who like to get their hands, er, paws dirty, preferably in sweet, sweet cookie dough.

Q: I have an old dresser that just won't cooperate and, before I refinish it, I want to make sure it will play nice. I have tried every size and shape of art I can think of to put above it, every combination of lamps and other decor to go on top of it, and I just can't come up with anything that looks good:
Name: Jesica Ryzenberg Location: Alamo Square, San Francisco, California Size: Studio, 450 square feet Years lived in: 1.5 years; Rented
When the door to Jesica's apartment swings open, you are greeted enthusiastically and welcomed in wholeheartedly (even when you happen to show up on the wrong day). The home of the spirited personality behind the fashion blog Ryzenberg On is the perfect example of what happens when you apply an eye for fashion and a knack for bargain shopping to interior design.
Here we are again, color lovers. Another December, another Color of the Year announcement from the gurus at Pantone. For the first time in a few years, I feel like things are moving in a more unexpected, bold direction. If this 2014 pick is an indication of our colorful future, then I say, let's go, bring it on!
If you love decorating for the holidays, but the idea of fitting an 8' tree in your tiny apartment seems more fantastic than a visit from Santa, then these ideas for holiday decorations with a small footprint might be just the thing.
