Love Mail Days


I got this box of yarn last Wednesday.
 I wanted to just dive in and start  new projects.

But I stopped myself. Cause their are two other projects I need to finish first.
Like the scarf I started last week.


Thanksgiving was good. I spent the whole day with my family.
Sunday night a friend and I drove up to this spot for some girl talk and coffee.

When I got home Sunday I finished this project!
I took it apart twice! This weekend because it was too small, then too big!
Finally got it right!

Now to finish the scarf!

Yup, it's all about Christmas pretties/inspiration this week.
I love stopping at Target with my brother, the minute he sees the holiday section, he draws in a breathe of excitement and yells "Christmas!"
Only a few more days till December and 30 days to my birthday!

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day

Over the river and through the wood,
To grandfather's house we go;
The horse knows the way
To carry the sleigh
Through the white and drifted snow.

Over the river and through the wood--
Oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes
And bites the nose,
As over the ground we go.

Over the river and through the wood,
To have first-rate play.
Hear the bells ring,
"Ting-a-ling-ding!"
Hurrah for Thanksgiving Day!

Over the river and through the wood,
And straight through the barn-yard gate.
We seem to go
Extremely slow--
It is so hard to wait!

Over the river and through the wood--
Now grandmother's cap I spy!
Hurrah for the fun!
Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin-pie!

Work in Progress...


This is the new infinity scarf I'm working on. I'm using a pattern I found in this book here.
I'm really like how the pattern is working out. The stitches are close, so this will be an extra cozy scarf.
I actually started out making this
But I wasn't liking the look of the pattern. I know it had a lot to do with the yarn I was using  but I'm trying to use my yarn stash as musch as possible.

I'm off to start my Thanksgiving preparations!

Monday Pretties...

These fingerless gloves are so pretty! I especially love the rose design.

I just bought a pair of white lights for my bedroom. I'm loving the soft glow.
Makes bed time even cozier.

I like this idea too!

These fall cookies are almost too pretty to eat!

Pretty arrangements! They would be great centerpieces for Thanksgiving.

Fall is so pretty!

Coffee is my start and finish

My weekend started with a tasty Vanilla Soy Latte after some shopping at Target.

Then I spent some time prepping these lovely ladies.

I finally updated the shop!

And of course, while I was updating the shop I enjoyed a cup of coffee with whip cream:)

Busy, Busy....

This past weekend, I spent nearly every spare moment crocheting!
Remember this project
I finished it about two weeks ago


And I started another one in a different type of yarn. I'll share pictures of that later.
I had to stop working on it because I need more yarn.

So, I made this hat. I also made another in a lavender color but I took it apart.
When I finished working the pattern I realzed I had made it using the wrong size hook.

Moday I went to lunch with this guy, my sister and Mother.
He didn't want his picture taken.
He told me, "Don't take my picture!" And when I snapped another he said, "That's enough."
I was too hungry to remember to take a picture of my burger.
I did manage to capture the yummy desert we all shared.

Okay, I'm off to crochet some more!

Monday Pretties



I'm dreaming of these cashmere undies. They're perfect for the cooler weather!


This headwarmer is great! Simple yet cute.

Awesome ring! Plus the shop has other great jewelry!

Vintage sweaters are pretty!

I'm loving this color combo.

I'm off to go enjoy some hot chocolate.

Feliz Dia de los Muertos


Today is traditionally the day to visit your dearly departed at the cemetery, build altars in your home or simply devote a moment of silence to the memory of the souls who come to visit and hang around the living. This is not ment to be a depressing or morbid time, but rather a time to celebrate life, family, food, color and fun.



Off to remember my loved ones.
