I am getting SO excited for Thanksgiving!!!! I spend it every year down in Palm Springs at my Aunt's house with my family. In the spirit of the holiday falling in the Autum season, I thought it would be LOVELY to decorate your table in tones of gold. Something about golden hued flatware and rustic wood really go together! What do you think? What are your holiday traditions for Thanksgiving?

I swear, Andrew and I are turning into 'Hoarders: Cat Edition' as the weeks go by. Last Monday night - without a second thought - we welcomed a sweet 4 week old little girl into our home by the name of Charlotte "Charlie" Baslow. A litter of kittens were born and abandoned in the right field pavilion at Dodger Stadium (where Andrew works) and we of course don't have the ability to say, "No," when it comes to animals. Adding to our ever growing family of furry babies, I'm pleased to introduce you to our sweet, teeny tiny little baby girl.

When I adopted Chaplin and Cal they were already weened and fairly independent, so they just roamed the house on their own right away. NOT THE SAME WITH A TEENY TINY! Wow, I had no idea how stressful and needy and totally CUTE wee little kittens are! Formula? Check. Shoebox lid turned litter box? Check. Closet covered in kitten litter and blankets galore? Check. Two pissed off rival siblings? Check check check!!!

Apparently I finally taught Chaplin and Cal the importance of sharing... see little Charlotte tucked in behind Cal on the bottom? This only took 5 days to accomplish without a ton of hissing and biting.

Sacked out behind the couch with her flamingo... how cute is that pink mouth???

Looking forward to keeping you posted on how this little bug is changing our lives - and my sleeping habits!

Andrew and I were supposed to go to the famous Mr. Bone's Pumpkin Patch in West Hollywood tonight to pick a pumpkin out... but then the Cardinals had to go and win game 6 of the world series last night so our plans for this evening have been put on hold to watch game 7.

To get in the mood of the trick-or-treaters to come on Monday here is a very fun idea to decorate the interior of your home! Why not turn your furniture into ghosts??? We put up purple and orange twinkly lights in our windows but haven't done a thing with the interior to get us in the spirit of the holiday. Placing white sheets and pooling them over the furniture is such a cute idea, and with various sheets on hand, a FREE decoration at that.

Today REALLY feels like the first day of Fall in Los Angeles. I woke up bright and early to a perfectly crisp sky with a HUGE chill in the air! Something about this picture makes me long for a cold day out on the water in a modern cement-y house to curl up in and watch the cold go by.

As some of you know I work for Pom Pom Interiors in Beverly Hills and am a bit obsessed when it comes to my store. I LOVE when Hilde + Reza come in and we change things around a bit. This time I decided to document and was then asked to post about it on their blog Pom Pom Living. Please hop on over there to check it out!

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted a 'wedded wednesday' lovelies! I see SO many beautiful weddings and receptions (and I always pin them!) but I forget to share here with you. So without further adieu, check out this rockin reception dinner idea:

I would love love love to have been a guest at that wedding! I also love how a scaled down version of this soiree could totally be executed for an engagement party in your parents backyard, or for a dinner at home on your patio with your close friends. The twinkly lights and the curve of the tables instead of one straight line are what do it for me. Can you hear the soft French music playing in the background?
