bag for g

just a fun little project i made for g. i just made a shell for a denim bag that i bought at hobby lobby. i turned the bag inside out before i attached the shell so the outside pockets on the original bag are now inside pockets of the new bag. mr. g loves it.

world market

so on vacation i have found a store that has become a favorite. i had been to this little nugget before but it was at a different time in my life so i certainly looked at things a little differently. anyway, world market is this great little store that has so many wonderful little finds. i got some really cute hats(anthro styling), some christmas gifts for next year, and some awesome specialty food. they have all of there christmas food 50% off. plus there is a $10 off a $30 purchase coupon if you sign up to be a member at their website. i bought tortilla chips (a really big bag) $1. gourmet peanuts that sell at home in a little tiny tin at kramers market for $8, i paid $4 for a tin that is literally 5 times the size. a big plastic drum of pretzels was $2. Old fashion glass soda bottles (box of 12) was $3.33. the best deal of the day though was the grade a maple syrup. 12 oz for $3. the only bummer is that the closest one to me is in louisville. i guess i will have to go visit my friends in st. louis or come back to florida for more world market excursions.

they also have this wonderful coffee rewards program too, if you have a local store. you can buy the christmas coffee to earn your rewards. the christmas coffee is really cheap. $3 a bag.

location and condition

spending Christmas on the sandy beach...seems a little wrong in a way with no snow...but Christmas really has nothing to do with your physical location does it? it really is all about the condition of your heart. love to you all.

kitchen light

we have had these pendant lights for over a year and finally wrapped our brains around the right application for them (after a trip to our local pottery barn) ...the dilemma has always been that one of the lights was going to need to drop right out of the middle of the skylight, which was really not an option.
the ladder (that was free) is a perfect solution for function and a little touch of detail. have a wonderful day.
