A Winner + Lovely Bedding


How was everyone’s Thanksgiving?  I hope it was filled with love.  I know mine was.  It was wonderful to gather with my family and spend precious time with my little one…who is getting very big way too quickly.  He turned 6 months old today. My how time has flown.  He’s going to be a year old before I can blink!



A Winner

Thanks to all of you who entered my Shabby Apple dress giveaway last week.  The winner of the dress is Andrea Mickelson.  Andrea please send me an email as soon as you can.  Thanks!


And on a totally random note I’m digging this mismatched bedding from Furbish.  Love this store.  I Wish I lived a little closer to Raleigh so I could visit.  Maybe I’ll have to take a trip one of these days.  I’ll have to add it to my never ending list of things to do.

Giveaway – Shabby Apple


Shabby Apple: great dresses that make dressing simple.

I’m so excited to bring you my newest giveaway from Shabby Apple.  If you aren’t familiar with Shabby Apple please head over to their website and look around.  They have some of the most beautiful women's dresses and killer accessories. Many of their dresses have the look of vintage dresses and are just precious.  I wish I had known about their maternity dresses when I was pregnant.  They have some adorable ones. 

Here’s a small sampling of some of my favorites at shabby apple right now.



Tiers of tantalizing ruffles cascade down this flirtatious frock.   A side zipper, cap sleeves and a black, grosgrain bow complete the dress.  Made from a sumptuous poly charmeuse, this dress is perfect for any party!

A Winner and the Reveal


The winner of the lovely pillows from The Taylor Galen Workroom is EKL Designs.  I don’t have your email address though so please send me an email at charmhomedesign[at]gmail[dot]com.


There was also another winner…US!  We won the viewer’s choice for the best window display from Window’s on Design.  Here’s a look at our window design.  We can finally reveal it on the blog.  A few of you may have seen it last week when I briefly revealed it then took it down.  Whoopsy…I didn’t realize I wasn’t supposed to reveal it until after it was down.

-Only a few more weeks until I start shooting the regular season of my new show on HGTV.  I’ve been crazy busy with the team designing, planning and purchasing for this season…hence, the lack of posting lately.  I can’t wait to tell you all more details about it!! 

xo, Cristi
