A Christmas Purse

Its finally that time of year when its OK to carry a Christmas purse. I just finished this baby and I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I followed the Moda Bake Shop tutorial {found here} with a few changes. Some intentional, some happy surprises. Lets just say I learned a lot.

I used a combo of Michael Miller Funky Christmas and random Christmas fabrics from Joann that I had in my stash.

One side is red...

The other is green...

I am absolutely in love with the polka dot lining...

And plenty of pockets on the sides, the perfect place to stash binkis, cars, pretzels, sharks, mints, and Star Wars guys.

Now I need to Christmas-ify the rest of my house! Cant wait.

Give Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving!

The bird is in the brine, the frog eye is first on the morning agenda, and I cant wait for my friends to get here tomorrow and let the feasting begin!

I have so much to be thankful for, my babies, my husband, my family, my friends, my job, my Boden cheetah print peep toes. The list is a mile long. I am so very very blessed.

A Banner Birthday

We have had a bunch of house guests recently. Living so far from family means whenever someone comes to visit us, we absolutely love it. Among our recent guests was Brads Bro and his wife (check out her blog here, she has great recipes!) We had such a fun time eating out, sight seeing, chatting, and of course shopping at Sephora. Seriously we were in there forever, and could have stayed longer. Love that place.

Anywho, my wonderful sister-in-law made me a super cute "autumn" banner for my birthday. I love it! It appropriately hangs above my desk and sewing machine.

It has leopard print AND glitter AND sequins. She knows me well.

Thanks Ade! I totally love it!
