Currently Enjoying ...

I am drunk on autumn and about to head into my second favorite season Christmas.. okay not yet, but having worked in the retail world, anything from September 1st to October 31st was called Falloween and anything from November 1st to December 31st was Christmas.

 A fond memory, When I used to own a store (many moons ago) we would hand out candy to kids on Halloween and then shut down around 6pm and paper the windows. Over the next 4-6 hours we would transform the store into a winter wonderland opening up on November 1st in our full Christmas finery.

So currently I am really enjoying...

  • The Best Podcast for a Slow Day at Work from Apartment Therapy
    {No if only my days were slower so I could actually listen…} 
  • Land of Nod Holiday Catalog
    {I have always loved this store and they are totally delighting my inner Christmas elf with lots of traditional and quirky items made by independent artists. Plus they have how-tos in their look book. }
  • If Money Were No Object What Would You Do... Brain Pickings by way of Mighty Girl
    {This just blew my mind because I really don't want to be doing what I am doing now..and because my next career currently in the works is exactly what I would be doing even if I did not need to earn a living}
  • Planning out my Christmas Decor at Martha
    {We are planning to decorate early this year so we can make the most of the next two months of merriment and insanity.. really the season is too short to enjoy everything..}
  • Rediscovered a site I love,  Hooked on Houses
    {After owning houses for 14 years we are renters once again. A sad serious of events that are turning out to be a great experience.  We really enjoy our rental house and I have finally learned that home is a feeling not just a place.. that said the next place I buy will be a little bit of Heaven.}
