Style Crush!

I’ve been in love with vintage thermos’s for a LONG time and I think I may need to begin collecting them. They’re just too fun! Here are a few that are beyond lovely!

I love the idea of a his & her thermos set! Found here.

This set of four is to die for! I love love love the green one! Found here.

Two words: DINNER PARTY! Found here.

This inspires me to have a picnic in a field of daisies with my beloved! I’m head over heels for it! Found here.

The patterns and colors on this set are so great! They make me yearn for fall… ♥ Found here.

That was fun! Andrew is home today, I think we’ll play in the snow a bit! Bring on the sledding and hot chocolate!

Another Snow Day!!

I was supposed to babysit today but, we have over a foot of snow at our house! C-R-A-Z-Y! I’m loving every sweet second of the snow magic.

Andrew worked for the better part of the day plowing at SAM’S but he’s home and resting on the couch, it’s actually quite adorable!

I love this photo! It captures the magic of that particular moment. I love our little house with it’s sweet lighting and fun colors. *sigh* And that man sleeping away is SO wonderful!

While he was gone I took on my very first ham, which is in the oven and smelling GREAT by the way, and I took a ton of photos. Here are a few from the snow today.

I think my favorite might be the wee cardinal. She was too lovely not to photography. I love days like this! I have a book and a cup of coffee calling my name! Happy Monday!

Snow Adventure!

I just updated our Fox & Owl blog with some of the MOST amazing photos I’ve ever taken. Today my dad and I went up on the Parkway and found the most breathtaking scenes of nature. Holy smokes. I was blown away.

The snow came up to my knees in some places and I was bunny hopping around in it, making giant foot prints. We went about 5,000 feet up and it was probably 10 degrees and the wind was blowing. Can I tell you a secret?

I’m never more happy than when I’m out like that, freezing cold, camera in hand, with the reckless abandon of a child and the whole world in front of me!

Here is a peek from today!

Don’t forget to check out our F & O blog. The rest will go on Fox & Owl Studio!

Style Crush

Oh my goodness I have a total style crush on  “modern sofas”! I think it stems from always having a ridiculously patterned couch while I was growing up and from the vintage couch we have right now. I went from pattern extreme to vintage! Check these lovelies out!

Ah! This gold tweed is SO gorgeous!

I’ve never been a huge fan of 70s pumpkin on furniture… until now!

This is my FAVORITE! I absolutely love how bold the color is and the bit of bling at the bottom, just the perfect touch to the pink!

It’s still snowy here, I’m waiting for us to lose power. I just can’t wait to go play in it when Andrew gets home from plowing! Eeeek!

PBS Might be the Greatest Channel… Ever

Today is a snow day. It’s been coming down nonstop all day and we’ve been loving it. We celebrated while watching PBS and eating a cozy lunch on the couch. Wait until you see what we watched. I’ll give you a hint…

Do you recognize that hand and painting?

I mean, we all grew up with this show.

Can you guess?

Okay okay, I’ll tell you…

It’s flipping Bob Ross!! Andrew and I looked at each other, faces alight, and squealed at the same time. Not. Even. Joking. We watched and marveled at his typical Bob Ross jargon, painting skills, and general splendor.

My favorite part (other than his fro)?

Happy little trees!

Happy heart!  Tonight the giveaway is officially closed. I’ll announce the winner on Monday! Hopefully by then I’ll be able to get out of our drive way, through the snow and to Panacea to pick up the coffee! Can’t wait!

Day Off

I’m taking the day off from sewing like a crazy person and resting my fingers! Andrew went to work super early and now he’s home and we’re going to play in the snow and do some shopping! I can’t wait!

Slush Jumping

As the snow was falling over Christmas Andrew and I went to Walmart for a bottle of wine and they were *gasp* closed! So we took to playing in the snow. We were the only people there. Not even joking. It was like the entire world was ours so what did we do? Slush jump! Slush is one of my great joys, while others hate it… loathe it actually, I like to play in it. It makes the most satisfying sound when you jump in it! Of course we had the camera and of course we documented every single delicious moment!  What is slush jumping you might ask? Well, I’ll show you!

That my friends, is slush jumping! I encourage you to give it a go if you have any available slush near you!

White Horton Christmas!

Hiya! I hope you guys had a lovely holiday! Andrew and I had our very first married Christmas and *drum roll* it was a WHITE one! I honestly can’t remember the last time we had a white Christmas in the mountains but, we got about 12 inches at our house. It was absolutely fantastic!

I’m so excited because we were able to keep with our family’s typical traditions and we were also able to carve out some of our own. We even watched a movie on Christmas morning – Fantastic Mr. Fox, Andrew got it for me!- I’m excited to see what next year will bring… hopefully we’ll be in CO. Here is some of our holiday in photos!

Lace Earrings DIY

Snow update: it’s still coming down like gangbusters! Andrew is off to work since he’s a plow operator and I’m all cozy sitting by the fire checking out DIY ideas for gifts. I found this DIY for lace earrings and fell in love with it!

(found here)

I can’t wait to make some of my own pretties and give them away. Giving gifts, especially hand made gifts, is one of my absolute favorite things!

A Snowy Sunday

Hiya! Andrew and I have taken to sleeping late, having excellent cinnamon coffee and watching the snow fall outside. It’s be such a delicious morning! Especially after last night when we found out his truck is not as fixed as we had hoped. Alas, alack.

We’re also watching Letters to Juliet. Not even joking. I actually really dig this movie, perhaps it’s all of the Italian architecture, food and language? Italy is on my list. I’m actually thinking of learning a bit of Italian given the chance!

[I love the idea of Juliet’s love letter wall. Although I think my letter would just be a sickening mushy love letter.]

Photo of my week coming up later! Until then, have a happy Sunday afternoon!
