Tomorrow marks the first day of December and that means the holidays are going to close in on you before you know it. It also means that holiday sales and events are kicking off in earnest. From online sales to community events, we've rounded up some of the best around the country. Check it all out in the Weekend Guide, pass it on and send us your own sale or event.
I am already overwhelmed (as I look out my window over the the uncarved jack-o-lanterns/Thanksgiving decoration pumpkins that languish, half frozen, on my front porch) to find myself smack in the holiday season. Am I the only one that it has snuck up on? Trying to catch up (already), I feel like I need a jolt of holiday music and some seasonal decorating to get me up and running.
Now that you've crawled out from under that turkey and stuffing hangover, it's time to start thinking about holiday shopping. While there may be four full weeks between now and Christmas, that time will get quickly gobbled up by parties and other festive frivolities. In other words, get started on holiday shopping now and spend the rest of the holiday season sipping egg nog and feeling superior to all the procrastinators. Check out the Weekend Guide, pass it on and send us your own sale or event.
Name:Nicole Lanteri, Interior Designer and owner of On My Agenda, and husband Aaron Trent. Location: Arlington, Virginia Size: 1200 square feet Years lived in: 5 years; Owned
Lawyer turned interior decorator Nicole Lanteri knows a thing or two about making a house a home. A few years ago she stepped away from her career as a lawyer to pursue her passion for interior design, and (thankfully) hasn't looked back. Her own apartment is filled to the brim with home design, architectural, and fashion magazines for inspiration. Moodboards dot the walls of her office, which occupies the top level of the two-story loft that she shares with her husband Aaron.
We may be a few days out from Thanksgiving but the holiday sales and events are starting to kick into gear. This week's list is full of indie designer sales – from coast to coast and cities in between. In addition, we have a number of online sales to get you prepped for the holidays. Check it all out in the Weekend Guide, pass it on and send us your own sale or event.
