A little of this and a little of that....

This is my favorite coat, and I think it now officially 3 years ago that I fell in love with at first site. What I really love about this coat is that I can put just about anything on and still look like I made an effort.

This little nest is from the sweet Allegra who wove those wires to create such a beautifully dimensional object. She also sent a new pair of cutters and I'll be giving them a test spin soon. They are guaranteed for life and can be sent back to the company for if you are a jewelry gal...these might be the ticket. I'll report back more on these later.

If you have been wondering where I have been lately I can only say that we have been very busy with Harvest parties, Halloween parties, soccer playoffs, a very wet trip to Portland for regional Junior Olympics etc....and from now until the holidays I will be running around like most of you shopping, making cookies, drinking coffee and generally trying not to let the holidays pass too quickly.

When all else fails I revert back to these words that were clearly posted at my daughter's preschool:

1. Take deep breaths
2. Count to 10 slowly
3. Say to yourself "calm down"

Ok...feeling a little better!

Wishing you and yours a very very Happy Thanksgiving!
