Etsy find of the week...

We are all about the snail mail movement 'round these parts, and despite my usual pleasure in organization, I have to admit that my letter writing station is a huge bundle of outgoing, incoming, stationary, pens, and envelopes scattered about. 

Wouldn't it be perfect to have this great organizer to throw into your purse as you head to your favorite coffee shop?  Oh swoon.

Happy New Year,
{thanks for the idea, M!}

Cannot wait to show you the new website tomorrow!  Stay tuned.

Movin On...Wrapping Up.

 I've decided to confess my fashion rut here so you all can keep me accountable...but not before I post a few items that I've espied the last few days with lust.

I've got a serious addiction to cargians...the 2009's like to call them the boyfriend sweater.  Whatever...I love them.  I really must stop aquiring them.

But look!!

I'm stopping!!!

p.s. Kelly and I have decided to migrate to a new blog that shall be revealed on New Year's Day.  I truly hope you'll join us over there for the continuation of this silly little show and tell tete a tete we've got going on.

Sex and the City 2: HUH?

Well, here it is.

I dunno.  I think it looks rather stupid.  That will not prevent it, however, from:
  1. Making Millions
  2. Making me drool over the fashion and/or cry because I have no idea why.
  3. Keeping me and my nothing-like-those-women from seeing it as we sip booze in the theatre.

Wadda think?

My kind of living room...

Apparently I need to find this Todd Yoggy, as everything I've seen seems to be exactly how I would want a room.  Victorian and traditional with hints of irreverence and modernity.  Wait, did I just describe me?


Found via the always inspiring Desire to Inspire.

Country Couture

Just another reminder from Anthropologie that
Living in the country by no means relegates a gal to Levi's and sweatshirts the rest of her life.

Felted Stones in a line

One of these things IS like the other:

A certain person's home

One of the first times we were hanging out, I remember you getting all gooey while you felted little stones.   And the thing is, it would be hard to tell which one of these you own.

What y'all think about felted rocks?! :)

Weekly Antler Gathering...

Happy Friday to you all. Congratulations on surviving the grueling shopping of last week's Black Friday and this week's Cyber Monday.  Got all your shopping done? :)

If you are still looking for ideas for me, check out my weekly posts at Antler Blog:
  • Books, Books, Books...bursting at the seams.  Do you like them free of restraint?
  • Or do you prefer ends to keep them in place.

I hope your weekend is frostbitten with December happiness and candy cane smiles.
Or just good,

DIY Reinvented

There are a slew of Do-It-Yourself projects out I have no shortage of ideas, but I do have a shortage of skill, craft space, expertise, previous experience, and tools.  Often, when I see DIY I now see KDIFM which stands for Kelly-Do-It-For-Me!  Tee hee.

So let's add this to the list of projects I want you to make so I can have it.  Thanks!
For the instructions and idea, see HERE

Weekly Antler Gathering...

How was your Thanksgiving?  I was hanging out with my sister and her in-laws and we had our meal at Black Angus.  Despite some trepidation about eating at a restaurant for what is arguably my favorite meal of the year, it was really good!  The best part?  Well, I believe it was the controlled portions.  So what if we bought an apple pie on the way home.

Here's a review of this week on Antler Magazine (which, if you haven't checked out this month's issue, you should! I'm in it!!!) :
Make no mistake, I shall not be shopping in any shape or form today.  Do you dare brave it?  Are you one of those people who thrive on the external stimulation or just the sweet taste of sale prices?  I am neither.  Therefore, I know god loves me...for on the 8th day he created the INTERNET and then on the 12th day, online shopping.

Happy Friday,

BOOTS for the country gal...

Despite lusting after a few hundred pairs of leather and suede boots, I've come to terms with the impracticality of it at this juncture in my life.  What DOES make sense to spend hundreds of dollars on, however, is RAIN boots!

So I scooted on over to Zappos and searched.  Boy howdy.



How to choooooose?

Though they are not technically rain boots, they are waterproof!  Plus, I'm destined to have them because they came up in the rain boot search.  PLEASE SANTA?  If only I hadn't given Santa a budget...

It's very often that most of my postings here are found on Anthropology.  This week, it's the rugs.  I've had a sack lack of patterns in my home, so I think many of these would do quite nicely.



Which are your favorite?
