Snow Day

Hey, all!

It's a wee bit snowy here today, so I worked a half day from home...and then I grew oh-so bored. So I did what any sane person would do. 

I rearranged! The blues & yellow/oranges totally scream spring/summer. LOVE.

Have I mentioned how much I love my hutch?! My mom found it for $50 and I bought it from her - it's one of my favorite things.

P.S. Here's the view out of my front door. Ayy!

Snow Ice Cream!

It's been a wee-bit snowy in the midwest this week (with more to come Monday, I've heard!)...my backyard currently looks like this.

I was telling my slightly-sheltered fiance about snow ice cream and he said that couldn't be real (WHAT.)

"Why would you eat snow? That's gross."

Oh...I will show him. I will show him how DELICIOUS IT IS.

#1) Gather clean, white, unadulterated snow.

#2) Find a can of sweetened condensed milk (or the Mexican version, if you're me) and some vanilla. I added in a little horchata mix & Mexican cocoa powder to add some extra flavor for my Latino.

Golden Tulip!

Hey all!

I got off work a bit early today and stopped by some local thrifts on the way home and found this gal for $3!

I flipped it over to discover it's previous owner had written on it...in sharpie. SAY WHAAAT. Unacceptable! Don't worry - Barkeeper's Friend took care of that craziness.

Wanted this guy, but not paying $9 for it! Uh, yikes.

I had to get this little Autumn Harvest for $2! (It's one of my favorite patterns!)

On a completely unrelated note, I made this print today to display at my reception and I'm kind of in love with it! I'll post a picture once I get a frame for it. :)
