Thursday Randomness

So. This has been a busy week. I'm not quite sure what has been so busy about it but I do know that the week is almost over and here I am scrounging to get a post up. I guess I've been mildly efficient because at least my house is relatively clean. Today my thoughts are all over the place so here is a random sharing of what's going on in my head. It's scary in there.

This is my knitting journal. It makes me smile each and every time I look at it. It's from F.G. and Company. They seriously have some of the cutest stuff ever. I picked this up at Pier One this summer.

 These are my 2nd favorite boots at Anthro this year. They just went on sale 1/2 price. Of course 1/2 price of a lot of money is still a lot of money but I thought one of you might want to order a pair.

Now this? This is within my budget. I first fell in love with it 2 years ago and missed buying it on Etsy. I was lucky enough to sweet talk the artist into making another one for me and I treated myself to an early birthday present. Lots of cool stuff here if you want to take a look.

I am currently obsessed with this drink and horrified that I just found out that it is seasonal. Umm...that's not cool. I don't have room to even stock up in this tiny house. Why would you play that joke on me Pepsi Cola Bottling Co.? I don't even like cranberry for crying out loud.

Last but not least let me say... 1000 followers? Are you kidding me? I'm humbled and shocked and wondering what you all are thinking! Mostly I'm just thankful you guys show up and occasionally care about the nonsense that I talk about here in my corner of the world. I really am happy you're here. So thanks to each and every one of you.


  1. I like your Thursday Randomness...I attempted to conceal my Thursday randomness in a post today! Love those Anthro boots - I only buy sale stuff at Anthro!

    Knitting....always been something I have wanted to try...

  2. love that pic of your daughter, very sweet. those boots from anthro are pretty darn cute, too. a knitting journal, sounds intriguing...

    glad i could be your 1,000 follower. love, love your blog.

    hope you have a lovely weekend.

  3. I have been in love with Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash for a few years and introduced a lot of my friends to it.

    I sent out a message in August that it was in a local store, I received 18 texts back saying "OMG! Where?"

    That's the earliest I've ever seen it on the shelves.

  4. Your model is darling!
    Those boots are fabulous...I want a pair! :)
    I'm feeling pretty random myself today....
    Have a great evening!

  5. Those are my fav anthro boots too!

  6. Congrats on 1000 followers- I can't imagine!! You are a lovely person and that just shines through your blog...and your 0 to 1000. You deserve it! Hugs-Diana ps...sometimes I don't know what I am busy with either!

  7. 1. Emma looks so grown up in that pic! sniff sniff. It almost makes me think that she's too old for Calvin after all? Almost, I said. Almost.

    2. 1,000!! Maybe the Universe would like you to celebrate with some half-off boots?

    3. I'm with you on the Sierra Mist thing. Only I haven't tried the Diet...

  11. Honey, are you PMSY? You are all over the board! ha! I love it. Emma looks so grown up, I wasn't sure it was her. Such a little Village Woman. I will search out this Sierra Mist, and I'll even stock it here for you-cause that's the kind of gal I am. You can pick it up in January during our LoveLoom Fest.

  13. Could Emma Lou possibly be any more adorable? I think we know the answer to that.

  18. Well, I'm slow... I thought that was YOU in the cute pic! Adorable! Congrats on the 1000 followers ~ you deserve 'em ! I can't wait to see more craftin projects as I adore your style...

  19. yep, we love ya! Congrats on 1000!! And I agree on the fizzy beverage. Not a cranberry lover, but so yummy- and no calories??!

  20. Love this spot in your world ... just found it. So, now you'll be 1,001 followers! :)

    Stop by if you have a moment for a Christmas Giveaway of handmade jewelry ... handpainted necklace & crystal earrings ... a little Christmas sparkle for ya! :)

  21. I think I may have a solution for the after Christmas shortage on the cranberry pop! I use ginger ale and mix it 1\2 and 1\2 with cranberry~pomengranate juice (the no sugar added kind) and it is delicious and has to be somewhat healthy. :] Our kids like to mix sprite and juice or sunkist orange with cranberry juice... it tastes good, has a little vitamin C, and feels special to drink it in fancy glasses! Hope you like it! I love your blog. So very fun!


Thank you for taking the time to say hello today! I always love to hear what you have to say.
