annie from most lovely things


Better Homes & Gardens magazine has always been a great source of inspiration for me, and this month’s issue tops the list!


Annie Diamond of Most Lovely Things blog is featured in an amazing article all about creating beautiful holiday décor with natural elements.


Annie and I have been Instagram friends for many years, and I’ve always enjoyed her beautiful pictures of her home, her travels, and her inspiring creations. Most recently, Annie has been using foraged items to make projects or accentuate her home décor.


During the holidays, Annie’s talent for heart-warming holiday décor really shines! Check out the article here and in your own issue of Better Homes & Gardens.


You can read all about Annie’s holiday décor here in the BHG issue with Dolly on the cover.

my favorite Christmas gift selections

Hello friends and let’s hear a warm welcome to December! The last month of the year… how did this happen so quickly?!


Having just realized the urgency to start on my Christmas gift list, I have to share with you some of my favorite and newest treasures from Vagabond House that I’ve recently added to my collection, because a lot of them make great gifts!


The Pewter Acorn Flatware is a set that I use an awful lot during the fall and winter months.

You may have seen this latest Christmas tablescape on Instagram recently, and you can see up-close how pretty the details of each individual utensil handle are.


Also part of the “Lodge Collection" from Vagabond House is this gorgeous set of Deer / Elk Salt and Pepper Shakers

They really make a statement at the dinner table, and I love how they coordinate with some of my favorite vintage plates and table runners.

At this place setting we’re featuring the elegant Antler Napkin Rings. These beauties are understated, but offer that quintessential winter feeling and bring thoughts of the forest and majestic woodland creatures to mind.


Here are some of my all-time favorites:


ü  The Elk Head Wood Flatware Caddy

ü  The Pewter Acorn Measuring Spoons

ü  The Pear Cheese Board


I can’t get enough of my new Quail Napkin RingsThis little quail is the just sweetest!

Our family has always had a love for quails, and I think it’s fitting that they’re a symbol of hope. These are perfect for the holidays, and they'd also be pretty for a spring table setting.


And here, a pair of quails makes an appearance on our sideboard in the form of Standing Quails Salt and Pepper Shakers

This duo has a stately presence on the dinner table, and they’re just so beautifully and realistically depicted in pewter.   

Here’s something that you didn’t know you really needed… 

The Santa or “St. Nick” Pewter Pick Set. This little set is a perfect solution to the ordinary wooden toothpick, when it comes to serving cheese at any party. So cute too!


They also make the most elegant picks to hold your Martini olive, Bloody Mary garnish or strawberries on a fruit platter.  


A gorgeous white stoneware piece like this Squirrel Stoneware Canister can hold a multitude of goodies in your kitchen, butler’s pantry or dining room. I like to store cookies in mine, since the seal is airtight and things like baked goods, coffee and tea stay fresh longer.


This one has a cute little squirrel on top, but there are dozens of different motifs to choose from, and even comes in a smaller coordinating size to make a pretty pair on your countertop.


Thanks for stopping by today and checking out some of my favorite pewter and stoneware pieces from Vagabond House. 

I know it's hard to pick favorites because there are so many pretty options! I like to start with essentials that know I'll use.

For gift giving, I look for something that is pretty but practical.

I'll be back in a couple of days with a fun feature from Better Homes & Gardens magazine that you won't want to miss!
