Its Beginning To Look Like Christmas

A scene from our little, itty, bitty tree...

Our Christmas Star...with a turquoise feather boa( of course!) and star lights!

Spooky Christmas frogs...I wonder what they do when we go to sleep?

Ethereal...Sparkly...Hazy... Christmas Tree!

I love this photo! It was yesterday evening...the lights... that is what the holiday is really about during this dark time for me...although its not so dark as compared with other places around the world!

What To Do With Your Chistmas Cash?

Some people get cash for Christmas...Wow!...I wish I could get scads of cash...Are you listening Santa???? Anyway if you are one of the lucky ones I thought I throw out some ideas for you to drop those after Christmas dollars!

My first idea on how to spend your money are these fantastic earrings above by VeraRodrigues.

Above are a set a super cool cups by circaceramics. They have an amazing selection of ceramics.

This coloring book by ClaudiaGPeason is currently sold out but its so cool! Maybe she will have one in stock by January.

If I wore belts...I would so wear this Turquoise Poppy Belt by MoxieandOliver...I would so take anything from this shop.

I love this bag with all my heart...Its called a Truffle Bag and the teal color is amazing. The shop is called Morelle and if you love bags... which I'm sure you should go there immediately!

Biscuits and Bacon...Yum!

I finally did it! I made those delicious biscuits and jam butter. They were pretty delicious.They were a little crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. The jam butter was strawberry.I only made one kind of butter because it requires a whole stick per flavor and my husband would definitely have found a way to eat the two other sticks. Methinks it was a good experiment especially for it being my first time making biscuits! Here is link to the recipe from SundaySuppers.

Winter Arrangement

Well its almost winter. This week I have been a little under the weather so I have decided to make arrangements from what I have in my yard and house to make me feel better!
My yard is full of succulents and I have used vibrant green sedum and lots of little lemons that I skewered on bamboo skewers...the tree is full of them. I wrapped the glass vase with natural colored twine and tied a kraft paper star I cut out on it. I totally dig it and it was almost free...YAY!

It was done by hand with amazing is that? Its called Trippity Horse by Branchcake on Etsy. I hope you enjoy its intensity!

Scenes From My House

I recently found out about picnik from one of my favorite blogs J.ChristinaHuh.It is a photo editing service! I love it. I guess a lot of people know about it. Anyway here is my first experiment!

Breakfast of Champions!

Nothing says love like coffee and home made brownies( and not the box kind!) in the morning...
If you like brownies I recommend the Katherine Hepburn ones from the Gourmet Cookbook!

So now I hope I will have dishtowels to list sometime next week and well the sparkly birds and wood necklaces they will probably have to wait until next year.
