Really feeling this Monday. Anyone else having a hard time getting back into the swing of things? #thebanisterhouse

We’re renovating our master bedroom which equals a mess and boxes in the living room. Which equals visual stress for me. So I’m posting a favorite pic of Mr. Reindeer from holidays past to ease my mind and to remind me that it will all be worth it for this holiday season. 🌿 #mermagchristmas

Happy Friday! Hope it’s a playful one (Even if it means sneaking over to your brothers side of the room to admire his Lego creations ☺️). #thebanisterhouse

A newly 10 yr old before he got a hair cut (and the current state of our master bedroom walls). I miss his long hair already 😭. This kid is very interested in design and I love it. We recently had a discussion on wood furniture and how some of the vintage dressers we have are actually made better than some of the newer items that initially seemed “nicer” to him. I could see the wheels in his head working as he opened and shut different drawers in our house checking to see how things were made. Melted my mamma designer heart. He still vows to have a new modern home when he grows up with clean lines everywhere (which I can totally get behind!) but I can see he’s starting to see some merit in his moms crazy love for weathered things as well.

Little miss and I have scheduled an after school mommy daughter date today to go around picking out lovely things from nature to inspire our holiday decorating. 🍁 🍂 When do you start decorating for the holidays? Do you have anything up already?

Flash back to the mini doll house wreaths I made for @willowdaygram’s countdown to Christmas last year. I loved trying my hand at wreath making and am getting excited about ideas for this year. These little ones are especially easy and fun to make so I’ll have to do a few more. I’m going to try to make a new doll house for Miss Amelia for Christmas if everything goes well. Wish me luck ☘️🤫🎄 #mermagchristmas #mermagdolls

Painted milk carton houses. A classic and easy craft for kids. #mermagchristmas

Not gonna lie, I’m so ready to jump right into Christmas. Who’s with me?! Santa Lucia paper crown I made for a @sunsetmag Christmas craft story last year with my friend, stylist @metacoleman_ . #mermagchristmas

Milla always reminds me that she indeed does have a sister. ☺️ Mabel our little chiweenie 🐕 is truly a #girlsbestfriend.

Giant moths have been extinguished and we’re jumping straight into November here at #thebanisterhouse . 🍂🍁 (And trying to curb the kids sugar crashes by parent taxing all the Twix and Baby Ruth’s obvs.)
