bits of inspiration – #96.

Sharing a slightly different kind of home tour today.. A cookie company in London has created what is arguably the most incredible gingerbread house of all time. The gingerbread architects as Biscuiteers Baking Company spent 500 hours creating  this 6ft-tall edible mansion, inspired by the the real-life Waddesdon Manor in the U.K. Watch the video below to see some of the work that went into this project, along with some really remarkable comparisons to the actual mansion.

a few of my favorite things – Etsy gift guide.

You know it’s officially the pre-holiday season when Etsy releases their annual gift guides. These lists can be super helpful but also a little overwhelming because they have sooooo many sub-categories. It’s really easy to go deep into the rabbit hole of looking through suggested list after list around this time of year. From tea towels to tech accessories, these Etsy collections literally include something for everyone on your list. Below I’ve selected some of my favorite items. Hope you enjoy!

SoWa holiday market.

On Sunday I visited the SoWa Holiday Market for the first time. Although I’d heard good things I arrived with pretty low expectations. I’ve been to other holiday craft markets and was envisioning a collection of kind of chotchkie ornaments and snow globes. I have to say that I was SO pleasantly surprised by the quality of really everything at this market. I was actually overwhelmed by how many things I loved and wanted. I kept myself in check and only made two purchases but the damage could have been much worse. Here are just a sampling of the photos I took.
