{I just couldn't stop typing...}


Brrrrrr!
Fall has arrived in Minneapolis! I could see Zack's breath this morning on our walk to work. The season is approaching fast... I hope winter doesn't visit Minneapolis that abruptly. Who am I kidding? I'm sure it will :) Gussy is prepared, though! My cute mittens will be arriving this week. I just know I'm going to treasure them; they are so adorable. Have you ordered anything new for the season?

Look at this snazzy, sassy number I put together tonight:


And, it smells great.
Double bonus.

I'm really loving the cooler weather.
Pillows, special yellow blankets, and to-die-for candle scents are on the top of my favorites list! I also found my yarn and knitting needles. I'm working on my domestic skillz by sewing a little cozy for our bookshelf.

Another great cold-weather fav. is my crock pot. Last night we had Upside Down Chicken Pot Pie. Tonight we're having Tomato Basil Bisque Soup with Gourmet Grilled Cheese.
{That means like three slices of cheese!}

We should do a recipe swap, yes?

Guess what else would be great for newly arrived cold-weather?
Some houndstooth fabric, of course.

My friend Natalie suggested the idea to me and I love it! :)

How lovely are these
hand dyed ribbon roses?!

{I'd love a bowl of them for around the house.}

Buy them for me?

Lastly, did you know Gussy is having an Etsy sale? In addition to the two giveaways you could enter {I believe they end soon}, there's a sale to celebrate 150 Etsy transactions.
Sweet!

{Actually, I'm at 151, but that's a bit besides the point, right?}

The sale looks like this:



Go ahead, click the banner, visit my site,
and tell me your thoughts -- they are
always welcomed.

Hmmm...how long does the sale last? Is it enough time to convince my sweetheart that I really do need one more thing?

=)

I love your "snazzy number"!! I wish we decorated more for fall. Maybe I should start taking that upon my self. =)
