Cool Stuff I Like

Happy Friday!! Is this not the COOLEST? Saw this wall o' clocks in a nearby town's bookstore. So awesome! They had a lot more too, that aren't pictured here - like Panem from 'The Hunger Games', that one was also futuristic looking. Are any of you doing Advent treats? I love love love any and all advent calendars. What I don't love is trying to come up with 24 little mini thingamabobs. Sometimes my creativity fails me, so I have items such as Hot Chocolate Packet #1, and Hot Chocolate Packet #2. Or chapstick. Or a dollar. (Hey, I would be thrilled to find a dollar in my purse! Or chapstick!)


Love this jingle bell garland.
 
BEST BLOG POST I'VE READ IN A LONG TIME.

Bellocq Christmas tea.

Best board books of 2014.

YES to this. Thank you Laura.

Ugly Christmas sweater ornaments!

Pomander and cedar embers scented candles.

Very cute mini size 'Truth or Dare' game, just right for stockings.

Apple babies! (yes, Posy Gets Cozy is pretty much on this list every week.) 

HOW CUTE ARE THESE DOLLS??

DIY Advent calendar ideas. 


Cool Book of the Week: 'Olive and the Embarrassing Gift' by Tor Freeman. How hilarious looking is this? Olive's pal Joe has given her a hat as an expression of his friendship - only it's atrociously awful looking. After Joe discovers how much Olive hates the hat, he HAZ A BIG SAD, so Olive tries to make up to him - by gifting with an even more embarrassing offering. This looks soooooo awesome!

Have a LOVELY weekend! Is the Christmas decor coming out?? Andrew and Julia say I can now commence with Christmas music. For my American pals, have fun eating your leftoverys from Thanskgiving. And for all friends across ponds, whether in a Hawaiian direction, or off in Europe, happy xo's to you.

  1. It's a treat, always a treat, to touch base with you and see what's been making you tick this week.

    I cannot believe it's less than a month before Christmas! Waaaah!

    1. it's darling, we have it. I got it for one of J's friends, for a birthday party last year, and I've been a big fan of it ever since! And it looks like a little mini suitcase :)

    1. Isn't that neato???? I didn't find anything compelling at the bookstore (although J said it looked kind of Harry Potter-ish and she thought that was cool), but wow that wall!!
