Hanna Andersson has opened Hanna Home, a decor division.
IT'S NOT TOO EARLY.
Fun crafts for the holiday season.
Thanksgiving recipes that kids will like.
Cold weather accessories a la cute. (that didn't make sense, I know)
I will be 1ST in line for this new translation of Grimms' Fairy Tales, with much scarier, undiluted, original versions of the stories!
Saw this tree skirt and thought, oh that's pretty! And then saw it was almost $300. Oh Anthro.....
Did you know there was a website called Stuffingandmore.com? Now you do.
Swedish Christmas Books. Yep. We're officially doing Christmas now!
Cool Book(s) of the Week: The 'Ever After High' series, by Shannon Hale. Alright. How to proceed......well, basically - MY KIDDO ADORES THESE BOOKS. Like, looooooooooves. Super loves. I've noticed that sometimes, if a book is too long, or doesn't capture her interest in just the right way, she will abandon that book and just move on. I'm trying to encourage her to focus on one book at a time and not be too scattered with her reading. But I didn't have to encourage with these books - she just tore through them until she was done, and then she begged for the next one. The set would make for a nice giftaroo for the holidays.....
the show. Julia is in stitches over how confused I get about what's going on. (Is that guy a bad guy? Why is he bad? Why did they throw that book down a well? What do you mean, it's not the REAL book? What the hey is going on????) All the offspring of fairy tale characters go to school together and Do Stuff. One of the main characters, Raven Queen, is the daughter of The Evil Queen, (but Raven's good) and everyone who goes to the school is supposed to sign some Book of Legend because.....I don't know why. Life will then unfold the way it's been predetermined. Or something. But Raven doesn't want to because she wants to make her own story and chart her own path. So there are two groups of kids, Royals and Rebels. Royals are like the preppy, do-goody kids, and the Rebels are kids who don't care as much about fitting in perfectly. Or something. That's about all I know.
Anyhoo, Julia's wild about the books and if I had had these books when I was her age, I would have been too! I kind of want to read them so I'll understand the show a little better.
Ok so that was neither short or to the point. OH WELL. Have a lovely weekend!
