If you are new here, welcome and thanks for joining us!

And if you’ve been around a while, as always, I am so grateful to you!!

I have really missed sharing with you the past couple of weeks! It has been such a crazy busy time of year. Since I host Thanksgiving day lunch, then we travel for the rest of Thanksgiving weekend, I got a bit behind with our Saturday Morning Gather.

It’s so good to be back and sharing with you!

Can you believe it’s only 14 days until Christmas!! Where has the year gone?

Well, let’s grab our coffee or favorite morning drink of choice take a look at what’s been happening this week.

I have SO much to share with you!!

A couple of weeks ago, I shared “How To Style a Graphic T-shirt 5 ways. I styled my custom designed holiday t-shirt as an example.

If you missed it, you can see that post here. And if you still need a holiday t-shirt, you can leave a comment at the bottom of this post, or you can email me at michele@vintagehomedesigns.com.

I also shared this yummy orange cranberry cake. You can make this as a loaf of bread or as a bundt cake. It is moist and delicious, as well as beautiful!

my monthly dinner club

As most of you probably already know, I am in a virtual monthly dinner club group. We host a themed tablescape and menu once per month.

Last month we shared a holiday themed table, and you can see mine here, if you missed it.

Next week, we will be sharing some New Year’s inspiration for our tables and a fun appetizer menu, so you don’t want to miss that.

I love creating these themed tables, and also love seeing the inspiration from my friends tables.

Did you see this fun Christmas tree plate wall that I created a few weeks ago?

or

this vintage paper Christmas tree wall hanging

vintage book pages, old patterns, sheet music and vintage photos taped to a gray wall in a christmas tree shape with a bench and christmas pillow below.

or this Christmas tree charcuterie board???

If you need a “little black dress” or a fun outfit for the holidays or New Years Eve, I am loving these two that I found recently. And you can’t beat the price!!

This black dress is comfy and beautiful. It runs a bit small, so I would size up.

and this black jumpsuit is stylish, comfy and so reasonably priced! Pair it with fun shoes and jewelry for a perfect holiday outfit.

It runs fairly true to size. If anything, a bit large. So, if you are between sizes, definitely size down, not up.

I was honored to be listed as one of the top 15 Vintage Home Blogs! You can see the other 14 amazing bloggers here.
