Snow Angels

Because there's snow on the ground...
and the office is closed...

It might be time for a snow angel...

...what's the weather like there?

Simple sweetness

It's amazing how chic this burlap looks all bowed up!

Hope your weekend ties together beautifully!

Hello World

Good to see you again.

Funny that the toast 
was actually created to resemble someone.

...Happy Wednesday!

That's how I'm feeling right now, 

but these bee themed items can't help but bring a little smile to one's face!

...busy as a bee
busy bee, busy bee...

Claim to frame.

Why buy new when you can have new and old?!

I love the distressed look of these barnwood frames by Rusty Mill.

Wouldn't it be fun to have some warm hued frames over the fireplace?

Or maybe more of a wintry mix?

Although, it's hard to go wrong with red around Christmas time...

but this one's sure making me thirsty...

...do you decorate for Christmas?

It's the weekend, yay!! Which means a little more sewing (okay, a lot) and a busy work weekend too, which is unusual! 

But for now, check out all of these sewing machines from the crazy sewing machine lady!

I think the Singer319W is my favorite!

I love the look of old sewing machines.

Almost as much the cases!

If only sewing supplies were light enough to carry around your neck.

Happy Friday!

Use Your Words

Aren't these bags fun?!  Saw a post about Sam Made yesterday and am loving this stuff!

I love the bags with words, but I think this one might be my favorite "blank" bag:

It looks old and it has blue - what's not to like?

Madly, madly, madly...

Loving these fashion photographs (and clothes!) from Gruhche

the designer lives in Utah and Idaho

 but says she spends a lot of time in Vienna, Austria

I wonder if she's met my friends

and that's all I need to know...
know, know, know
madly, madly, madly...

 ...or Thursday for everyone outside of the U.S.

Happy Black Friday!

Adios Autumn

It may have been winter now for a bit, but it still doesn't always quite feel like it in Tennessee.  Thank you 70 degree weather.

Either way, I'm sure the temperature will regulate out to cold sometime soon, so here's a little sendoff to fall with some warm autumn hues from inside.  I'll just hope winter brings snow - just doesn't quite feel the same without it after living in Colorado.

I'll see you all Friday, Happy Thanksgiving!

...sometimes it'd be nice to just sit and stare
sit and stare...
sit and stare away...

As cozy as an apple

I stumbled upon these apple cozies the other day in Cuffe Shop and am still finding them amusing!




 Or, perhaps, you'd prefer an apple pouch instead

I think they were made with the teacher in mind, but I really like this little pouch myself!

...maybe I should be a teacher 
mmm, maybe not...
