{Campfire Days}

With the crisp cool weather of Autmn just around the corner, I feel myself looking forward to warm homemade apple pie, pumpkin and apple picking, and seeing the leaves change to crimson red, bright orange, and golden yellow.  I’m an October baby so naturally I am happiest during this time of year.  I love the way the world looks on a crisp, cool, cloudless day.  It makes me want to go camping and sit around a campfire.  How about you?  I hope you’re inspired by some these great vintage goodies on Etsy.

{Life’s Guilty Pleasures}

Here are a few of my “guilty pleasures”…for dinner last night I had peanut butter and jelly crackers and a glass of ice cold milk. Not exactly the healthiest of meals, but boy did it hit the spot.
My husband buys me flowers for no reason. I’m not sure why I feel guilty telling people that he does this, but I do. I’m no fancy schmancy gal either…the cheap supermarket flowers do me just fine!

Vintage linens and fabrics crowd my craft room. I have no idea what to do with it all but I love knowing that I have it.
I’ve also started to become drawn and addicted to paper ephemera…especially if it has numbers on it. Why? I have no idea.

I am constantly on a mission to make something better…as if everything in my house needs to be fixed, straightened, painted, or organized. I can never let well enough alone. My latest project was to turn this area of my kitchen into a well-functioning work station.

I recently chopped off all of my hair. When 2009 rolled around I had had enough and I don’t know if I’ll ever go back, much to the dismay of my husband. For some reason, I feel sexier and more confident.

And finally…I go ice skating with my friends during our lunch breaks. We have such a good time and for once I’m not hanging onto the hopes of an early Spring.
