Hello, all.
Welcome to the first of "Feature Favorites" in 2016!
As usual, I will be sharing some sweet blog posts, photos, and feature websites that have recently caught my eye. As we recently closed out another year, many bloggers shared their most popular or favorite posts of 2015. Hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have.

Beach Bonanza
The homes editor of Coastal Living was challenged to play favorites and name her top beach house spaces of the year. See her gorgeous roundup. 

Decor and Design

One subject that editors at "Lauren Conrad" especially love to share with you throughout the year is food.

Fashion Frenzy

I found two Cottage and home blogs that I couldn't decide which to share, so I'm sharing both below...
 "The Cottage Journal" shared their most popular posts of beautiful, cottage style inspiration!

Fantastic Photography

Linking over to these blog parties:


  1. OMG, that bedroom!!! I want it!!!


  2. Chip and Jo!! Oh of my favorite shows!!

  3. Love these features! I'm definitely going to be checking some of them out. I am also a huge fan of "Fixer Upper" - and those photos of Chip pretty much sum up his fun-loving antics! But, I truly love their style, and I love that the motivating factor in fixing homes is to help the people involved. I like that it's about heart, not just about wallet.

    Hope that 2016 is starting out *just right*!!
