fave friday


happy friday, lovelies.

how cute is this leaf mobile?  if you are still in the mood for a little fall decorating, like me, this might be fun to make.  i was at the mall last night and they were playing christmas music.  i’m just not down with that.  can’t thanksgiving have some space?  i like to think of myself as a plan aheader, but when it comes to holidays i’m not.  thinking about it stresses me out, if i’m honest.  so i basically put it off until it’s right in front of me.  what about you?  and, since thanksgiving is right in front of us, i’m getting excited for that holiday first.  do you have any traditions when it comes to thanksgiving?  we tend to make the same thing over and over again and i think i’d like to incorporate a few new menu items.  do you try new recipes every year or stick to the tried and true?  i like the good old carb standbys (mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, stuffing, etc), but i’d love to add some new fresh and fun dishes in the way of salads and veg.

well, before there is thanksgiving, there is this weekend!  we don’t have any major plans except for a date nate, maybe a family movie night and hopefully our first fire.  it’s starting to get soo cold here!  and, just i’m hoping to disconnect a bit more this weekend.  to try to be aware of the stare.  i so enjoyed the conversation we started on connecting to connect and feeling disconnected (read here).  would love to hear your thoughts on the subject.

01 /  your fear is the most boring thing about you.

02 / have you tried contouring?

03 / ever wonder what type of white upholstery fabric holds up best?  

04 /  i just downloaded a pretty floral watercolor for my desktop + mobile.

05 /  remember when i crushed on this office?  well, here is a DIY for the wallpaper panels.

    I love that mobile! We’ve already had our Thanksgiving here, in Canada. I haven’t heard any Christmas music yet (touch wood). It’s way too early yes? I always stick to the same old for my Turkey dinner and all the recipes are in my head…kind of boring but there ya go. Hope your weekend was lovely.
