Things I Love

virtual shopping spree

Instead of spending all my money today on a bunch of really cute stuff, I’m just going to show you all the things I would spend my money on today, if I were going to, um, spend all my money on really cute stuff. Yeah, I’m not feeling super creative with the words right now, can you tell? (All pictures from the linked sites referenced.)

First up, these absolutely darling ruffle scarves that I found over at You Love Deals. They’re only there through today, and really, for $12.50? Must. Resist.

A half yard bundle of Flea Market Fancy, because I am absolutely, irrevocably in love with Denyse Schmidt.

Then there are the spring tops. I’m loving these thin, lacey tops and camisoles.From J. Peterman

And this one, from Eddie Bauer, but I want it in Almond.

This wallet. (Those COLORS <3)

These shoes. Pink snake print? Um, yes.

This top. (Fossil is killing me.)

This skirt. Orange. Grey. Sigh.


Also, a half yard bundle of Curious Nature. It is just way too manly, rugged, and sophisticated at the same time to pass up. Thanks Parson Grey/David Butler.

I’d love to day that’s all I’m trying not to put in my shopping cart today, but I’m sure I could find something else if you give me another few seconds.

What are you wishing you could buy right now?


How about them apples?

I just have to say: there is something incredibly, immensely, overwhelmingly satisfying about growing your own food. I know I’ve said it before, probably more than once, but seriously, I can’t get over how awesome it is to plant a little seed, and get so much in return.

Plus, I’m quite proud of my little apple tree! Only 3 years old and producing me these amazingly beautiful apples? Great work little tree!

I love that I’m going to make applesauce with these, knowing they haven’t been sprayed with chemicals. Knowing they are safe and wholesome for my kiddos. I’m a sucker for stuff like that.

You know what else is awesome? Not one worm. Not one bug.

Apples. Just one more thing I LOVE about autumn.

Happy weekend!

PS: Thanks for all the love about my magazine pattern! You guys are the best. (It hit stands on Tuesday!)  xoxo
