I just came across the shop WoodlandBelle and am completely smitten!  I love all of her woodland themed accessories, especially the twig hairpins:

I might actually do something with my hair if I had those to put in it :)

Her succulent accessories are super cute also, you can carry your little plants with you! And they'd be easier to take care of too hehe.  And this little butterfly necklace was in  my Favorites FOREVER, its so cute and perfect:

What's your favorite?

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I know I'm just one of a multitude of bloggers wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving here in the United States, but that doesn't mean that it's any less meaningful :)

I spent all of yesterday afternoon making pumpkin pies from scratch using the same recipe I used last year which you can find here.

I made three standard sized pies (only one homemade crust though, two of them were store bought) and a whole bunch of bite-sized pies, aren't they cute?

Tomorrow, I get to meet my brand new nephew!  And spend all kinds of time with my family eating loads and loads of food and watching Miracle on 34th St.

What are your plans for the weekend?  Fun, friends and relaxing I hope?

A Place To Get Beauty

Where would you expect to find some beauty?  Perhaps a shop called beautyspot?  That's where I found these super cute necklaces:

They're perfect, no?

I can't even pick a favorite!  They're all awesome :)

She also sells rings, earrings, broaches and more, so check her out (and I'm not affiliated in any way, I just want to share her wonderful creations).

Musical Monday #4

Thanks to theurchiness, I've come to thoroughly enjoy doing these Musical Monday posts :)

This week, I'm sharing a song by a band that I went and saw in concert last Tuesday at the Launchpad in Albuquerque, Margot & the Nuclear So and So's!

The concert was so much fun, I only got a few measly phone photos, but trust me, it was sweet.  Small venue, dedicated fans, we got to stand right up against the stage, get some tshirts and autographs, I can't wait till they come back!

Musical Monday #3

Another Musical Monday!  Initially inspired by theurchiness over on Brie by Night :)

This week I'm sharing Send Me On My Way by Rusted Root.  This song always makes me happy, it reminds me of flipping pancakes and 70s dishware, wouldn't that make you happy too?

What's been playing in your ear this week?

An Eerie Dream

I recently happened upon SwanBones, have you seen them?

I love the pretty, eerie, dreamy quality of her work. 

And isn't the name, SwanBones, just perfect for the shop?

Another season of changes. The leaves are changing, the weather is cooling, I recently moved into a new apartment with a new roommate, got a new job (in addition to rather than instead of).

Change can cause a lot of stress, but it can also be a great way to keep things fresh. Right now, these changes are not the latter. I'm going to try to change that, ironic no?

In order to make these stressful changes into refreshing changes I will:
  • unpack at least 1 hour everyday - I can't function properly in a disorganized environment
  • have more tea - the warmth will help me brave the cold weather and get off my butt and into gear
  • take more pictures - I do love my camera, Mr. Cliq (pronounced "click"), but we haven't been going on regular dates lately and I know I feel better when we date
  • knit more - this is the biggest thing, I haven't been knitting near as much as I should be, it really does help keep me sane and I need my sanity to deal with the additional job, classwork and life changes
  • eat healthier - we all know that stress causes us to crave junk food right? no? just me then? ok, personal goal
  • blog more - because I like it, and I should do things I like

What changes are happening in your life right now?

Oh, and all of these leaves were found on the same tree!  So many stages of coloring :)
