Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone out there has had a wonderful day today, we certainly have! So much to be thankful for this year, I am a very lucky girl!

We spent the day in our favorite ways - lazing around the house, cooking, crafting, visiting family, eating and then going to bed early :)

We've had a rare weekend at home, no big plans or expectations. It was great.

We spent Saturday around town, seeing friends, at the children's museum and walking around downtown. Today was great, a cold clear day with time to be productive around the house. This is my idea of a good Sunday morning - tea, crafts, catching up on stuff online.

I was able to finish up a few fall crafts like this needle felted pumpkin

and make progress on some handmade holiday presents like these socks

(I've actually gotten all the way to the heel since this picture was taken)

This afternoon we went to Hope Gardens, a local community garden for an open house. What a great organization - you can pick and pay for produce, you can lease a plot, and you can go on any Saturday for a work day. It was great to look around and let the little one run through the garden making friends with everyone.

Since last night was our first frost we spent some time outside rearranging in the garden and making our last batch of pesto - yum!

What a great weekend at home!

{This Moment}

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. Inspired by Soulemama.

that's me and Q by the way

Fall Felting

I've been feeling the felt crafts lately and I'll try to share a few of them on here over the next week or so. First, felt acorns!

Aren't they just adorable?

I love them. I've been seeing them on etsy but they just looked too simple to make to justify buying any.

Super simple to make, I wet felted up some small felt beads (although I know you can buy bags of these as well)

and then just hot glue gunned (although I'm sure you could super glue/tacky glue them) into the acorn tops. Voila! Adorable felt acorns!
