three things: stay cozy

There’s something kind of wonderful about the combination of a tweed blazer with a houndstooth scarf, don’t you think?

three things: for a coffee break

around here lately

Nothing feels quite as nice as coming home to a place you love after a long trip. It’s wonderful to be bak in Austin and back in our loft. I’ve been enjoying all the homey comforts so much this week. Hanging out with Cors, getting coffee at our local coffee place, and meals of granola and berries.

Yum.

Our good friend, Audra, is visiting this week and it’s so fun to get to show her our favorite spots.

weekly loves: three lovely things to start the week

This week’s loves are here to get December started on a pretty, lovely, and adorable note. Enjoy!

1) A beautiful clay ornament how-to by Kelli Murray over on A Beautiful Mess. I want to make a bunch for present toppers.

2) A pretty Christmas playlist from Kinfolk Magazine in case you need some tunes to play while decorating the tree or wrapping gifts.

3) This magic mug is pretty much how I feel most mornings. Isn’t it cute?

blankets and quilts, oh my

I know it’s way too hot and I’m probably crazy, but my bookmarks are filling up with photos of quilts and blankets in beautiful piles. I really want to find an old camp chair like this one and stack up the cozy things in preparation for that one and only cold day that Austin gets each year. I know, the girl is crazy.

wednesday loves: cozy things

Snow, rain, snow, ice, and more snow. That’s what things have looked like around here for the past week. I like winter weather and the way it makes hibernating indoors with warm blankets, comfort food, and good books extra appealing.

Wow, this post is starting to sound very lazy. But I don’t mind admitting, that if I could sneak an extra day off into this week, I would spend it tucked up reading and eating cake.

wednesday loves: bits of christmas

Please excuse this week’s Wednesday Love for being extra homebody-ish, but it’s been a terrifically lazy week around here. We’ve had a few trips to the movies (I still want to see The Artist, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and Tin Tin), knitting projects, lots of reading, and lots and lots of cups of Newport Coffee’s amazing Holiday Blend. Oh, and hazelnut biscuits, too!

wednesday loves

I’m not sure if it’s the birthday money burning a hole in my pocket (Such a funny expression. I wonder where it comes from…) or what, but I’ve got my eye on all kinds of shiny, pretty buyables today. They all have a wonderful cozy and/or sparkly feel to them, which is kind of perfect for the frosty weather that has taken over .

A brand new yarn line from Brooklyn Tweed. I think I spy just the shade I’ve been looking for!

 On to another beautiful new line, this one is the Metalic Lace and Leather Collection from Scout & Catalogue. I like the styling and of course I love the bags! I think it might be time to invest in a new pouch for all the knitting stuff that I must have with me always.

wednesday loves: belated

I don’t know where my head is these days! I had this week’s Wednesday Loves post all set to go and completely forgot to post it. So today we have a belated loves.

It’s so chilly and rainy here this week. In other words, we’re having my favorite weather. I mean it. I love cold and mist days they’re so perfect for staying cozy inside. I pulled out one of my favorite soup recipes on Tuesday. It might not look like much but it’s so delicious!

My prescription for a perfect rainy day meal: homemade split pea soup and grilled cheeses. I use a sharp cheddar and monterey jack on sourdough. Here is the recipe in case you’d like to try it for yourself!
