Today, It’s About Giving!


In celebration of the human spirit, High Fashion Home is donating 10% of today’s online sales to Pencils of Promise. I was fortunate enough to hear Adam Braun speak two years ago at a conference. Adam told his life changing story about visiting India in 2008. There he met a young boy begging on the streets of India. Adam asked the boy what he wanted most in the world, and he replied “a pencil.”

That moment inspired Adam to start his own organization, Pencils of Promise. Pencils of Promise is a non-profit dedicated to building schools and increasing education opportunities in the developing world. Since it’s inception, Pencils of Promise has built over 250 schools. In March 2014, Adam Braun released his book “The Promise of a Pencil: How an Ordinary Person Can Create Extraordinary Change“. The book debuted at #2 on the New York Times Bestseller list.

So on December 8th, 2014, our High Fashion Home team would be honored and humbled if you join the cause to give the gift of opportunity. In the spirit of giving, when you find the perfect gift shopping at HighFashionHome.com, 10% of your purchase will go to Pencils of Promise. I love Adam Braun’s simple, beautiful message of hope. We all should start believing that ordinary people can create extraordinary change!

 

 Pencils of Promise brings life-changing education to children around the world by building quality schools and sustainable education programs.

A donation of $25,000 can build a school in Laos, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Ghana.

The gift of opportunity is something every child deserves.

Christmas Decorations!!!

Alright folks! It’s crunch time, time to get serious…. about Christmas decorations that is. If you are anything like me, having your house decorated for the holidays just adds to being in the Holiday Spirit. Here are some ideas if you need some decorating inspiration.

I absolutely love using pine cones for Christmas decorating! You can use them like this, put a bunch in a pretty basket or even get crafty and glitter ’em up! Some stores even sell bags of pine cones that are cinnamon scented. 
So festive! All the red, hanging stars and snowflakes. Love it!

Decorative Christmas balls or ornaments in tall vases, bowls or fancy martini glasses are an easy but very fabulous decorating idea!

Feathers for Christmas

I was in Pier One earlier today and saw a beautiful green Christmas tree decoration made with feathers. I ALMOST bought it but I’m trying to not shop for myself while out and about. It really did have such a pretty look to it; I love the look of the feathery stuff. If you’re looking for a nice gift for someone or want to strike out and make one yourself, here are some pictures to help inspire you.

A lovely white feather Christmas tree. Visit Martha Stewart for the DIY instructions to make this.

Here is the pretty green one from Pier One.



Here is a fun, Grinch colored one from Etsy by foolishthings.



White feathers with just a touch of silver glitter on the tips from ZGallerie.
