Farewell, November!

It is full on Christmas posts & outfits from here on out! :) Tomorrow we will be kicking off our own 25 Days of Christmas! (I'm sure it will be more like 18 ..but I'll do mah best) FREE Christmas printables, gift guides, holiday outfits, recipes & other festive ramblings to come!


 I had a lot of questions emailed to me about our wreaths, so I wanted to share this It does seem like a pain in the ass task to buy & hang wreaths in all the windows, but it really isn't so bad! We bought real, fir wreaths from the Christmas Tree Farm to put on the front doors... but the rest? $2.50 fake wreaths from WalMart. They just needed a little fluffing! Rather than pay an additional $2 per window for hangers, the wreaths are attached with fishing wire looped around the locks on the inside. Clearly it was easy for me since Harper & I just stood around watching my husband do all the work... he may have a different opinion! :)

Leopard Onesie, Leopard Scarf (From H&M not stores, similar here & here online), Leather Jacket (Marshals but similar here & here)

I wish I had an unlimited exterior illumination budget so we could go fully Griswold style on our house. 


One last thing. I wanted to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has purchased chalkboard prints from my etsy shop! It is such an overwhelming feeling of success & happiness to know that you all want to have my hand drawn artwork in your homes! If you want to share a picture of your framed chalk art, upload on instagram use hashtag #JGRockChalk so that I can see them all!! :) And don't forget, if you are purchasing, be sure to use coupon code 30OFFCHALK for a 30% discount off the listed price!

  1. I love the window wreaths! That's very much a south/east coast thing.

    1. I was wondering! I am from the Northwest & have never seen window wreaths--just an occasional wreath on the front door. But I love it, it looks amazing!

  3. So the wreaths are on the inside of the windows? It's hard to tell in the picture.

    1. The wreaths are on the outside. When my husband opened each window from the inside, he looped the wire around the lock and through the crack of where it opens while holding the wreath on the outside, then tied it up! :)
