I am all for elaborate, well-planned bashes, but sometimes ain't nobody got the time for that. With the holiday season in full swing, between getting ready for Santa, work being busy at the end of the calendar year, and other commitments, there is just no room in our days to Martha Stewart-ize this party we want to throw. So I threw together a party game plan with minimal effort, and am sharing with you the fruits of my (limited) labor.
The morning of New Year's Day, while we weren't feeling entirely seedy, we were craving something greasy and delicious. I didn't have enough eggs in the fridge to do a stock standard bacon and eggs breakfast, but I also needed to use the bacon pretty soon. Then the lightbulb came on: bacon pancakes.
If you were wondering, "How else can I showcase my love for invertebrates in my home?" the Medusae Collection of pendant lamps by Roxy Russell is your (expensive) answer. Check out these ethereal beauties and imagine them illuminating your space with their floaty and frilly presence…
I'm going to be moving in January to a different city, but I know I'll only be in that city for six months or so. With that in mind, I'm not looking to spend a lot of money on a bed, nor am I interested in buying a used bed. Do any of you have a creative temporary bed solution?
I put out the call for our Homies to send us their holiday decorations. Damnit, I want to see how y'all offbeat the holidays. And WOW did I get some amazing peeks into your homes. We've got alien-head tree-toppers, Mid-century Christmanukkah decor, beer ornaments, and trees that are both sideways AND upside down!
I'm a non-believer, but for me, Christmas has always been my favorite holiday for all the seasonal and festive reasons. I love the lights, the baking, the presents, the family togetherness time. Agnostic seasonal decor was a great post last year, but one of the unanswered questions, is what do you DO as a non-believer at Christmastime? If you're curious, these are my reflections, conclusions, and current practices as an Atheist as Christmas.
