It's Friday I'm In Love

Happy weekend everyone!  Whew!  I am ready for it, let me tell you!  Tomorrow night I am leaving the city with my darling husband and retreating south for 2 days at our family cabin in the woods.   The both of us are ready to escape our respective daily grinds and relax in the crisp autumn air.    I've been looking forward to this for weeks and now that it's here, well  just hope we don't sleep through the whole weekend!

Featured Etsy Artist: Stephanie Briones

Keep an eye on this one!  Stephanie Briones of Briones and Co. is one talented young woman!  Her paper goods are not only lovely to look at but extremely useful too.  Products include note pads, meal planners, recipe cards, and more.  She also sells the cutest little twig pencil sets, which I might have to buy.  What strikes me the most is how perfectly she styled & photographed her work, so light and bright, showing that small simple things can add real beauty to your everyday life.  You can shop Stephanie's great designs here.

Happy Monday!

Good morning all!  It's a beautiful autumn morning here in Minneapolis but best of all my kitty Groucho is walking about a bit & has regained his appetite after his car accident.  I'm on top of the world!

I am just loving this autumn weather!   But it's made me realise that I got ride of just about all my fall/winter wardrobe when I was clearing things out before our move.  Oh, darn!  I guess I'll have to go shopping!   I've already gotten a couple pretty all-purpose sweaters which are kinda staples in ones wardrobe but my real prize has been this amazing pair of vintage Laredo cowboy boots I got for a steal!  I can't wait to wear them! 

Other things I'm loving right now are wool skirts, delicate textured knits, pretty much anything plaid and trench coats.  Coats of any kind actually!  They are one of my favourite things to shop for and the last thing I need more of so I have to resist the erg to splurge. 

my new boots!
