I am in love with this mantle display from April at secondsister suaviloqy.
Her blog is one of my favorite little web jems.
I feel a kinship with her somehow, that I cannot completely explain.
Over the past few days I have finally begun to catch up on my blog reading and comment replying.

Doesn't that mantle just look delicious?

And this bookcase? Adorable!
I am currently obsessed with simple paper garlands and April's are so cute!

I made a few paper garland inspired items for Christmas this year myself (including this display over the dinning room table) and I have big plans for many more as the year progresses!

We are at my mother's house for a few days, relaxing, and doing a whole lot of nothing.
It is bliss. Again, I am so thankful for my new job and the fact that I can now keep "school time" with the boys. That is perhaps my favorite Christmas gifts of all.

My sweet man bought me the new Rachel Ashwell book, and I have enjoyed reading it as much as I have looking through it's pictures.

I think my favorite quote so far - one that sums up where I am in my life right now is this one:

"I have learned the pace of nature, her secret is patience."

isn't that just the best?

ok, back to do a bunch of nothing now.


  1. Thanks for the link. I am following her blog now. Beautiful photos.

  2. So what did you think of the new book?

    I spent what felt like a lot of $$ on it, and it's so, well, sparse? or something? Like a couch in an empty white room on every page.

  3. Wow...I can see why you're smitten. That is gorgeous!! Something so delish about a lot of paper strung up, huh??

  4. I love the Mantle too.. So cute. Love all the handmade paper things. Really sweet. I saw this too. Happy New Year.


ok, really. tell me the truth... do these comments make me look fat?
