Loving Lately

Every year Fred purchases a poinsettia from one of the many fundraisers at his schools.  This year for some reason, my flower didn't do so well.  To compensate for the drooping stems, I snipped them off and created this colorful centerpiece using a store-bought bouquet of lilies and mums.  The final result was beautiful on my Christmas table.   

The sales after Christmas can be downright amazing.  I picked up this entire bag of clothes for my daughter at the Gap for under $50...five shirts, a dress, a skirt, a pair of tights and a hat.  It was a "score" in my opinion... 

For years, I've been trying to stall my daughter from getting her ears pierced.  My grandparents treated me when I was eight years old, so my mom and I thought it was time for her to have them done.

Flexible wire whisper bracelets {here} add a whimsical touch to a chunky gold watch.   

Banana chocolate chip biscotti from here...perfect to use up ripe bananas. 

What are you loving lately?


  1. You're letting your daughter get her ears pierced at 8?!? I waited until my daughter was old enough to drive!

  2. ... "a whimsical touch" ... bahahaha!
