Cool Stuff I Like

Christmas time, Christmas time, la la la la la! It is isn’t it? Now that we have that little speed bump I call Thanksgiving out of the way (sorry T-Day lovers), it’s CHRISTMAS TIME!!!!

Did you all have a fun day yesterday? I wasn’t going to post today, but I succumbed to the insane need to proclaim IT IS OFFICIALLY CHRISTMAS TIME. The rest of our days off from work/school are going to consist of getting out the Christmas “stuffies” – Julia’s term for stuffed animals – and trying to get out to see ‘Puss in Boots’ (really want to see ‘The Muppets’ but I think we’re going to wait until I read some reviews and weekend opening craziness abates.) Oh, and playing our new obsession, checkers. I’m going to have to do a whole post on the checkerboard because it is SO RAD and because I have never made anything SO COOL in my life (other than my kid), and I owe it all to my AWESOME neighbor. More on that later.

If you are stopping by during your holiday break, thank you! I am so very thankful for my new bloggy friends and for all those who have taken time out of their day to come visit our little corner of the internet world.

A few things on the COOL STUFF list this week, a short and sweet one:

Autumn Energy Bars.

This video is simply amazing!

Russian Vintage Books. The ART. Whoa. (via Where the Lovely Things Are)

Bumpkin Bears Holiday darlingness.

Matchbox Mice.

Cool Book of the Week: ‘The Little Christmas Elf’ by Nikki Shannon Smith. Found this at the grocery store of all places! SO precious about a small elf who struggles to finish her first toy in the Elf Workshop on time. I love any and all books about elves in Santa’s toy workshop.

Whatcha all doing this holiday weekend?? What did you eat that was particularly divine? And, let’s say it all together: IT’S CHRISTMAS TIME!!


  1. thank goodness for the Christmas season... you have a wonderful thing going here in internet land. I like reading what you've got to say. Those lights in a jar are fantastic, I may have to get that going on in my kitchen soon.

  2. Thank you Robyn!!!! Your sweet words really made my day! You should TOTALLY do the lights in a jar. SO EASY. And such high reward. They make me happy all day long! :)~ Melissa
