leave with said paper and a new sweater and the yearn of a new le creuset pitcher.
With holiday traveling and lack of space, please say hello to our Christmas twig!
Makes me think of the San Juan’s.
It does look like the San Jaun’s! I remember the first (and only) time I went there. It was the very first time the boy and I were going out of town for more then a night and I was NERVOUS. Spending that many days with me in a row can take a toll on most people but we had a blast! Took some mopeds around the island (perhaps he was trying to drive away from me), went sailing, played cards and relaxed. Everything there is so pretty.
Lovely Monday: Wreaths
I finally got to hang up my felt ball wreath I made a couple years back. I saw this idea from Pickles and I just had to have it. The next one I’ll make will be much larger and better constructed but I still love this little guy.
If I didn’t already have a wreath I’m sure I would have made a rosemary one by now. I love the idea of the door opening and getting a fresh whiff of rosemary. I love the simplicity of this one but for the more traditional full rosemary wreath would still be as lovely.
Now all I need to do is some hard core christmas shopping and I’m done!
I’m on the couch watching tv and I looked over at the other end of the sofa to see my dog, the boy and the cat are all sleeping so soundly. This is exactly how I like my life to be.

This is the official photo of Mandela casting his vote in the 1994 elections. It was the first time Mandela had voted in his life. It was taken at Ohlange School, Inanda, Durban by the IEC’s official photographer, Paul Weinberg. It is one of only two images of this event.
A beautiful mess posted this adorable dyi porclain holiday trees
I think they are so cute but with my felt ball wreath, plans on decorating our small tree (that I get to get yet due to the boy’s apprehensiveness) and other crafty projects laying around the house- I think I’ve overwhelmed the boy with all of my projects. So before I start are these trees, perhaps I’ll finish my scarf, and the kitchen project, ooo and the closet organization. Wish me luck!
For those who dont know, I’m addicted to Birchbox. I closed my Netflix account and clearly could not have 10 bucks just laying around so I signed up to be mailed a fun box of monthly samples. You build up points so you can get stuff for basically free, like this snow day box filled with hot coco, cinnamon marshmallows, socks, fireplace matches and the cutest travel scrabble set.
They also have a men’s box as well for $20, which I signed the boy up for. Cute bow ties and face cream- keeping him looking good. They also have a tumblr if you want to check it out.
