Luminaries in Michigamme, it's beginning to look a lot like christmas

Aubri, Liz and I went to dinner at Mt. Shasta and then to check out the shops in Michigamme...

the whole main street was lit with luminaries..
free treats & hot cider in every store...

Aubri, Sheena & I went thrifting

Sheena picked out 3 "beautiful" sweathsirts, this is one
ok, so I couldn't leave him, yes I am obsessed. He was only .25 AND HE IS TURQUOISE!
the owl fabric I ordered online and will be my new kitchen curtain. Aubri NEEDED the lime green fabric and the ribbon, she is following in her mothers fabric addiction
bell wreath for 1.00 and I just added the christmas ribbon
garland, I'm not sure what I am going to do with it but i NEEDED it

aaahhhh finally

things I worked on today...

what Aubri worked on today...

Kitchen, part I...

After: I am in LOVE with chalkboard paint!

guess what is going to go on this part of the wall?
i really like this picture, I will pack it away and maybe find a new home for it someday (of course, i will spray paint the hideous gold frame before it's re-hung)

I have a salt & pepper shaker collection..

& a rooster Heidi sent me..thought I'd pull some out for thanksgiving

thanksgiving buffet


Mimi's Apple butter

i found the recipe here: http://www.allthingsfarmer.com . I wasn't as patient so mine is a little more "chunky"

new curtain & fresh paint

aaaahhhh, much better (there was a hanger on the back to turn the mirror, Aubri did this for me)

old - silver mirror

new window, no curtain
new - curtain & turquoise mirror
yeah, this is my new favorite color. I think I need to rotate this so it's a diamond instead of square...
gnomesome traveler fabric, i love it!
