This year The Sassy Space is looking super…duper…holly…and jolly. I wanted to change up the look and take it up a notch from previous years…Great success. In my head was the idea of the living room bringing the sense out winter, and outdoors, indoors. Bringing a door into the room and using it as a photo set came to me first, then the rest sort of fell in place. Once I decided to deck the tree out with fake tufts of snow..well then, it all turned into magic.
Above the mantle and behind the tree is “wallpaper” from beautiful Target Wrapping Paper. The new curtain behind the tree came to me at my most favorite place in the world, Savers. There was one panel, I needed one. When getting ready for the holiday sessions, TJ and I did a clean sweep of The Sassy Space, cleaning out every closet and place we had stashed things in over the past few years, re-assessed, and re-organized. My big blue nautical star would not fit in a tote to be packed away with the decorations we found. I spray painted it Gold so it could stay. Originally it had been planned for above the mantle, or on my door set on the opposite wall from the tree. Then, laying in bed the night before decorating day…I realized…the star goes on the tree. YES! I have never had an adornment atop The Sassy Space Christmas Tree, I never had anything that I thought to be deserving enough to go up there. This giant star is doing the top some serious justice, shining brightly in all of these holiday session images. Shine bright nautical star, shine bright. The flag banner was made with kraft card stock, a package of pinecone stickers for a scrapbook, red glitter, a package of white snowflake foam stickers (all bought at Michael’s, but at any craft store) and strung together with twine. For the chalkboard sign, I sprayed a piece of Bristol Board art paper with chalkboard paint and put it in a frame, also sprayed with gold sparkle spray paint. The glass for the frame was kept out, but stored behind the board for safe keeping.
We are having to much fun up in here! I will blog more of each room after this weekends round of holiday photo shoots! I even had to add more spots this weekend hadn’t planned to book it at all…. We are having such a most excellent time making serious photo magic in here! <3 <3

“The king was so happy about the birth of the princess that he held a great celebration. He also invited the fairies who lived in his kingdom, but because he had only twelve golden plates, one had to be left out, for there were thirteen of them.
The fairies came to the celebration, and as it was ending they presented the child with gifts. The one promised her virtue, the second one gave beauty, and so on, each one offering something desirable and magnificent. The eleventh fairy had just presented her gift when the thirteenth fairy walked in. She was very angry that she had not been invited and cried out, “Because you did not invite me, I tell you that in her fifteenth year, your daughter will prick herself with a spindle and fall over dead.”
The parents were horrified, but the twelfth fairy, who had not yet offered her wish, said, “It shall not be her death. She will only fall into a hundred-year sleep.” The king, hoping to rescue his dear child, issued an order that all spindles in the entire kingdom should be destroyed.”
Anyone else think the King should have just gotten another golden plate, then a whole lot of trouble could have been avoided? Lol
Our Sleeping Beauty came to life a couple of weeks ago at Gillette Castle in Haddam, CT. The team put together a beautiful chic palette of pale pinks, grey, neutrals, and black. It photographed so chic, and warm, it was the perfect compliment to the story of Sleeping Beauty, and our very own Aurora, who just happened to be a real life Aurora, the one and only of Aurora Photography. I can’t believe this is our fifth princess, the collection of images is really starting to look magical, and all the seasons that matched the princess’ give each shoot it’s own look. Take a look at past princess’
And it has been a great time, to just get together with creative people, to make magic. Of course, it is sort of crazy while we are out there, but time after time, it comes together just right. Our Sleeping Beauty glowed from inside out, the set glimmered and shimmered, Country Girl Collections brought french doors for the shoot…amazing. Welcome Branch and Bloom to the mix with the florals, beautifully done, girl! Here is the full list of wonderful vendors that put all of this magic together. Thank you all again!
