+ i still feel all over the place; but the house is coming together. i'm sure you're sick of my house ramblings, but that is all i can think of. like i was telling dan; my life is being a housewife, a stay-at-home mom and a freelance designer from home (ala aqua studio!). and a bit of an OCD nutcase. thus, the making of the house is of utmost importance to me.
+ i did manage to scrub the border of a hand-me-down woven rug (yay oxyclean!) and put out some halloween decorations in the front room. i even glittered a pumpkin with some newfound friends for the porch. it catches the moonlight (and spreads glitter all over too). we have some of our favorite fall books out; including this thanksgiving storybook.
+ am already thinking about christmas cards. what about you? do you do christmas cards? are you so over christmas cards? am leaning towards tinyprints, minted or moo. do you have a favorite resource? this holiday kermit made me smile.
+ there was much dreamy talk about quilts and bedding (ala my quilting cousin) over soups and cider and curry rice (not all in one sitting) this weekend. am officially switching over from a puffy duvet to layers of quilts. i know this isn't groundbreaking news. but i have a happy memory of staying in a bed & breakfast in delft, holland when i was thirteen. my brother and i had the attic room with a skylight and two charming twin beds piled high with dozens of mismatched warm quilts.
+ am itching to blog another am a fan post. there is a lot of cool stuff out there. as you know.
+ the husband assembled this and this over the weekend, while cooking curry and playing trains. he also watched two boys and mowed the lawn, criss cross applesauce style. he was mister productive. he is such a hero to me. i am so grateful to have him in my life. i don't brag about him enough on the blog.
+ i have a few more incredible handpicked home sponsors to plug this week. i'm excited. these are all companies / products i truly like and feel they deserve a spot in the sunshine. i hope you'll click in and check them out. most of them have killer packaging too, which always helps.
+ anyone interested in mini diaries for christmas / festivus?
