sweet december birthday boy

Hello Monday!!  We had a fantastic weekend celebrating my sweet husband's birthday, he's now 30-something young & couldn't be cuter!  I've had the pleasure of celebrating the past 9 birthdays with him & I am looking forward to having a whole lifetime of fun birthday memories with each other!  One of the things his friends & I did to properly celebrate was taking Creed to Medieval Times for dinner, oh my, it was so fun!!! The rest of the time we relaxed with our cute pups, watched lots of fun movies & ate delicious food (including yummy cheesecake birthday brownies)!  Here are some photos of the festivities this past week/weekend...

I am feeling so much more relieved now, I got the rest of my Etsy orders shipped out today! Hooray!! & only have a few local orders left!!  It feels so good to get all that work done!  I also got our Christmas cards sent out, yay me! I plan on spending my "vacation" working on some new bootie designs. I can't wait to share! Hoping everyone is enjoying this holiday week, I personally can't wait to wake up on Christmas morning with my family! xo. ♥

little christmas home

Here are some little sneak peeks into my christmas home...we have been enjoying it so much!  Christmas lights just make everything feel so warm & cozy, we have even been getting some tiny snow flurries these past few days (which is a rarity in GA before christmas).  I'm looking forward to spending time with our families & enjoying the last little bits of 2010 these next few weeks! 

Hope everyone is enjoying this holiday season!  I am still finishing up orders to ship out in time for Santa to deliver them!  Then I hope to have some free time to finish up my christmas shopping, wrap up all the christmas prizes & enjoy a little down time with my family! ♥

This is real

real amazing...

I'm not sure if there are words...
Sometimes I play movies to just have something different for background noise in my studio.  A constant on my movie playlist is UP, it's so magical! I usually can't watch it without crying a little (or a lot)!  It's just so I found this:

The artist Michal Miszta from made this amazing replica of Carl's house from scratch!  I am so in love! I have been wanting a dollhouse for awhile & I suppose I just found the one I want.  I have a sneaking suspicion that making my own version of this sweet house is going on my 2011 "things to accomplish list."  It's a tall order...(it took Michal 7 weeks to make it & he's a pro) but how amazing would the outcome be?!?!?! Magical...simply magical!

choices choices

Every year I have made a resolution to send out Christmas cards.  I spend hours thinking & sketching out ideas for the most amazing card - something unique & fun & full of our personalities & oh I've had some really cute ideas BUT then December comes, the month slips away & I get disappointed that I didn't make time to make my own so I just end up not sending any out.  Lame, I know.  I followed suit this year but instead of just giving up I decided to just buy some...a compromise of sorts because I picked mine out on Etsy (still handmade just not by me).  

I have a weakness for letterpress & oh boy! are there some fun ones to choose from.  Here are some that I fancied while browsing:

Oh & in case you are wondering we settled on these little handsome guys.  My husband actually had an opinion & he said he liked these "because he has always liked bears"...haha! works for me!!

Now for next year, I solemnly vow to (try) to make my own christmas cards! Which reminds me, I have actually been working on my list of "things to accomplish in 2011," the list is growing daily, it may be a busy year!  I will share my mountain of a list soon! Happy Thursday-almost-Friday!!! xo.

Wreath Inspiration

Hello world!! I am just coming up for a little air...I have been in lock down mode since Thanksgiving.  I am working hard to get all of my orders done in time for Santa to deliver them!

I have been trying to take little breaks here & there to decorate, I love how my little Christmas home is coming together this year!  I can't wait to share photos when it's complete!  One thing on the Christmas to-do list is make a wreath for the front door.  Being the knitting & yarn lover that I am, I can't help but be drawn to these yarn ball wreaths, I have been seeing them everywhere & have been itching to make one!  Here are some pretty inspirations & links on how to make one for yourself - enjoy!

& finally this little beauty by the amazing Dottie Angel

I am working on a super-mega-amazing Santa's helper gift guide that I will be posting later this week & I've also been putting together a fun little wrapping paper tutorial - the wrapping is always my favorite part of gift giving!!! Can't wait! Time for some more knitting & hot cocoa drinking!  ♥

Winter Bedding

I still have my very summery bedding on our bed & have been day dreaming all day about changing it.  If money was no object...I would *love* one of these options! (of course they are all from Anthropologie)

Anthro - Rosette Quilt

Anthro sheet sets

Happy Thursday-almost-Friday!  Today I have enjoyed puppy snuggles, lots of hot tea, an 80's dance party in my studio & I'm predicting that some over-sized burritos will be on the menu for dinner! hugs&cheekpecks

the newest addition to the Perry family
(or baby Razzy as I like to call her) 

Razzy is a 3.3 lb. bundle of - pudgy wrinkled, puggy snorting, pancake paw having, puppy breath breathing, curly tail wiggling - joy! We all are still getting accustomed to each other but she is fitting in nicely with our little family.  

& despite this face that little Olive has, she is completely smitten with the new addition & can't quite get enough of her.  She shares her hugs & toys with her & always checks on her when she's crying.  It's just a whole bunch of cuteness in my house right now!  Happy Wednesday!! Razzy & Olive send their puppy hugs & kisses!

How we made it to Wednesday already I'm just not sure!! We attended a little birthday bash for a friend this past are some pre-party instax mini's.

Okay so it's more than a hint...I gave it away! BUT I will be doing a more formal introduction for this new little lady later.  Whew...I had forgotten how exhausting (but totally worth it) puppies can be!

feather fever

So I'm a little bit in love with all things feather lately.  Here are some feather-y things that make me all giddy...

feather tights - freepeople

feather tattoo - found via weheartit

This little feather obsession could have to do with a tiny feather-y project I am working on, just a little something for the house to help blend my thanksgiving & christmas decorations.  Hopefully it will turn out how I envision it & I will share! But now it's time to relax with my little family...have a good evening!
