Sorry for being so MIA! Life has caught up with me, and it has been quite the race. Between homework, preparing for Christmas, and studying for finals, Christmas break has flown by and I have had no time to update!

However, I have many posts planned, so bear with me and keep checking, becuase eventually I will find time! Until then, my lovely viewers(Jesscia), have an amazing holiday, no matter what you celebrate!

Vintage, Lace, and Ruffles, Oh My! (and tiny houses too...)

A few weeks ago, i had a vision of my room, except it was marvalously redecorated in very soft colors, with lots of ruffles and lace everywhere. As i was searching the internet for a picture to help me put my fantasy into a reality, i stumbled upon this picture...
Is it not the most beautiful house you have ever seen!? So I clicked on it, and it took me to a website for "tiny houses." How delightful! Plus, it is very much like how my vision looked!
And here is the outside of the house. "Tiny houses" are meant to be..well, tiny! The point is to have tons of storage, and use every square foot of what you have to its full potential.
Is it not the most dreamy house you have ever laid eyes on? Nestled in the woods, with all the vintage colors and loveliness...<sigh> I could stare at these pictures for hours on end. Simply type in "tiny houses" to the google search engine and you can find these pictures, plus much more.
Sweet dreaming!

A crisp winter day...

This weekend has been delightful! A clean room with lit candles, the wind howling outside my window, while I sit in my cozy chair, reading a good book...simply lovely.

Today we went and got our Christmas tree :) It is a delightful specimen, with the most scrumptous pine needle scent and beautiful emerald green in color. We havent put it up or decorated it, because we still have to move some furniture around, but I assure you, it will be up and ready by tomorrow night! Sorry the pic is not up right :(

I love winter, because it is a time to sit by the fire, drink hot chocolate, and be with your family. It may be cold outside, but indoors we enjoy a snuggly temperature!

Our dog, Luna, loves to sit by the fire, or relax on the sofa. She was the most adorable puppy, but now that she is all grown up she is very majestic(in my opinion ;)) Here are some baby pics. Isnt she adorable!? So soft and tiny...well not that tiny in this pic, but i couldnt find any anothers. oh well

She is a white german shepherd

Also, today I have been at work decorating my room for the season. I strung up lights, did a few arts and crafts, and lit some yummy candles. You can see my cotton ball tree, and pumpkins :) i know they are out of season but i couldnt bear to throw them away...

Scrumptous :)

Well, I must run along, for the oven is calling my name! Goodnight darlings!
