I can knit.  I haven't done any knitting in years and I almost forgot that I could knit until I pulled this scarf out.  I go through phases in my creativity.  I made jewelry for a while, did water color painting for a while, did sewing for a while, and I was going to attempt cake decorating but that didn't work out.  I think I may try knitting again. I just need to find my needles....

Leopard Shift



J. Crew leopard shift dress, jeweled collar shirt, cognac riding boots, fall look, fall outfi
Dress: J. Crew
Shirt: Loft 
Boots: Michael Kors via DSW
Bracelets: eBay

I'm so excited to decorate for Christmas this year. I think it has to do with being in a winter climate again. And, we have a mantle for the stockings.  We put the tree up on Sunday and will work on decorating the tree and the house this week and next.  Doesn't it seem like it was just the 2013 holiday season?  This year went by so fast!

I got this dress off of eBay a few months ago.  I really need to stop with my J. Crew hunting and collecting!  I added the jewel collared shirt for a bit more warmth and once the temps drop even more, I'll add tights.  We have a 90th birthday party coming up and I may wear this... unless I find another J. Crew dress to buy.

First Snowfall

Winter outfit, white coat, j. crew pants, j. crew cashmere gray sweater, statement necklace
 Coat: Old Navy last year
Sweater: J Crew
Pants: J. Crew
Shoes: Old Navy
Necklace: eBay

The weekend was pretty good.  My husband's parents came for visit.  They live about 4 hours away and that's much better than being a 3 hour flight away. We went to the Great Lakes Science Center in Cleveland on Saturday. What a great place!  It is very much hands on and the kids loved it. Rob and I were also able to have a date night since we had babysitters for Saturday night.  It was really nice. 

We are supposed to get our first significant snow fall tonight. The kids are so excited.  We have bought the boots, the snow pants, the gloves - we're all set.  It's quite the change from living in Florida.  The thing is we have lived in areas where we got snow and this isn't something new for them, but I get it.  To be a kid again.....

Picture Taking Challenged

Necklace: eBay (similar)

Purse: Kate Spade Outlet (similar)

With the unreliable weather and daylight savings, it's been a real challenge getting pictures taken.  I wish that I had a little studio in my house. I'm sure I could fashion something in a corner (our basement is huge!), it's just a matter of figuring out the correct settings on my camera.  I'll just add that to my project list. 

Does anyone have some pointers?  Do you post less in the winter months because of the picture taking issue?

I mentioned yesterday that I did a major closet purge.  Now I just need to work on finding new and different ways to combine the keepers.  This outfit is a good example of getting out of my comfort zone and trying something new.  I saw an outfit on Pinterest with army green and red/white stripes.  I had both and then added the fur vest for warmth. I really like how it turned out.
