Gobble Gobble

I know I know, Thanksgiving weekend has come and gone but I just love these dish wares from West Elm.

I came across this photo and article a couple of days ago and had to share it. My sister and I are huge Princess Bride fans. When I say huge I mean we can recite the entire movie, steep hills are instantly called the cliffs of insanity, we have been known to yell "INCONCEIVABLE!" or "As you wish" while we roll down sand dunes and on our trip to Australia a couple of years ago I am quite certain we saw an actual R.O.U.S. [Rodent of unusual size].

The Smell of Fall

Things I love most about fall: The specialty coffees, the crisp temperature that is perfect for fleecy wearing. Also perfect for hiking and running. Below are a few snaps from the long weekend spent in the Wentworth Valley.

Wet Felting

A couple of weeks ago I took a wet felting course at Gaspereau Valley Fibres in Wolfville N.S. Louise and Elaine of Fibre Ensemble were our fantastic [and patient] instructors. Everyone in the class left with their very own wet felted laptop cozy and, for me, a new hobby [oh great!]. Below are a few photos that I took throughout the day. I will post my a photo of the final piece next week when I've had a chance to add a few decorative elements. Have a great Thanksgiving weekend everyone!

Colourful Acorns

It was this particular felting project that made me want to pick up this new hobby. I kept seeing these felted acorns on Etsy and thought that they were just the cutest things. I have been patiently waiting for acorns to hit the ground and a few weeks ago, there they were! Below is a photo series that shows a bit of the process of making these felted little guys.
