invited me back this year for her annual gift-guide round up…
for sprucing up our home for the holidays!
what a wonderful, joyful weekend
stuffed full of
so VERY much to be thankful for
thanks to YOU
i do so love sharing in this space.
i cannot believe my 29th birthday is a little more than a week away…
i little scary to be entering my last year of my twenties, i have to say.
here is my list of wishes, needs and dreams.
many, not so glamourous, but as a new homeowner
with a to-do list a mile long
this is what is on my mind!
others are truly “in my dreams”
but that’s allowed, right!?!
reid and i thoroughly enjoyed this.
i so often crave the simplicity of a life
before the world wide web and social networking sites…
i was thrilled to hear that
was chosen to portray daisy
in baz luhrmann’s
without a doubt
my most favorite book
of my most favorite class
the memories are still
junior year of boarding school
ms. hannay’s english
i would literally run down the walkways and into
the school building
in anticipation of our discussions
of the assigned reading…
what book made you fall deep in love with reading?
i am the first to admit
i’ve totally had a girl crush on gwyneth since the early days
and i know, at times she come across as a total snob in interviews
and some films have been less than stellar…
but last night
she nailed it.
and my heart sang a little.
did you watch?
i’m a bit behind-the-ball
posting these halloween costumes
my sewing class girls
i wanted to get them up before december!
the girls spent some time brainstorming
before we started drafting patterns and sewing
and i am blown away at how close to their original sketches the costumes turned out!
i started my
i actually finished it in a respectable amount of time
but wanted to get a sham done before i took pictures
and that… took awhile.
i had bought a fat-quater set with each print from heather ross’ far far away I
from which i cut the squares for the top.
i pieced a strip off-center on the back of the leftover bits from the top…
i included the “far far away” from the selvedges because i thought it added to the whimsy…
at long last…
a peek at the corner of “tay’s
(which is also my home sewing room)
i am so pleased- the quilt reminds me of rainbow sherbet!
last week was crazy
and i LOVED every minute of it…
(ahhh… a house of our OWN to entertain in!)
, my bff since high school
came for a visit
(we’ve been trying to make dates work for a very. long. time.)
her yellow labbies came long to play with nellie (and the cats)
bernie loved tormenting the wimpy pups…
snugglefest with strider and sage
lloyd is very verbal
(especially at meal-time)
ok, seriously mom(s)
is it walk-time yet?
(please excuse the rug we messed while wrestling)
we met up with amy (another one of our high school “fab five”)
and her chocolate lab, tiggy
for a gorgeous fall walk
all the kids
seeing you both!
AH- THANKS for making the trek
AQ- until next time…
