A Little Inspiration: Halloween in White

The idea of decorating for Halloween in shades of white has always appealed to me.  I love white, and even more, I love anything unexpected.  Anything I can do to put a new spin on an old tradition is good with me.  How about you?

What’s your favorite holiday trend?  Or would you rather stick to tradition?

Our Registry

We’ve tried hard to make it clear that the best gift our friends and family can give us is just to be there for us on our day (since just that will require almost all of them to travel, and we know that’s a lot) but we decided to set up a registry for anyone who might insist.

We’ve been adding to the collection over time, working slowly and throwing in a few things we need and a few that we’d just love to have.  When it turned out a lot of our dishes were cracking, we added some pretty new bowls.  When we ran out of candles, we realized it couldn’t hurt to add a few to the list.  It’s been a really easy way to tackle the big project that a wedding registry can become… and it’s worked out really well for us.  There are so many things to think about it the last few months of wedding planning that I’m thanking my stars we were able to get this one out of the way early and a little at a time.

Currently Obsessing Over: White Spaces

There was a time when I couldn’t stand a white wall… probably brought on by long periods of apartment-hopping, never settling long enough to paint the space (if I was allowed to at all).

But now that I’ve had a couple of years to recover, I find myself gravitating toward these gorgeous clean spaces.

Especially when they’re paired with those rich wooden beams.

Next home?

A girl can dream, right?

P.S. Thank you so much to everyone who filled out last week’s survey.  It is amazing to have all of your feedback, and I promise it won’t go to waste.  Over the next few months (and into the future) I’ll be working to make A Thousand Threads better than ever… so please do stay tuned!

And if you didn’t have a chance to participate, I’ll be leaving the survey open for at least a few weeks.  Answer one question, answer them all… whatever you have time for.  Every little bit helps!

(happy Wednesday — half way through the week! … … optimism helps the hump.)
