Because Thanksgiving & Christmas are only a month a part, our family decided to switch things up for our Thanksgiving meal so that we don’t have two overly similar meals at the two holidays. Each year we pick a different country & prepare our Thanksgiving meal with an international slant. We’ve been doing this for … More Tasty Tuesday – A British Thanksgiving
One of our traditions with my sister & Mom is to make a Christmas craft together over the Thanksgiving break.

So I decided … More Make It Monday – Necktie Camera Strap Cover
There is nothing like walking into a thrift store & seeing a sign that says “50% Off Everything in the Store”. Nothing like it.

The three treasures that I am sharing today come from just such an experience I had yesterday. … More Secondhand Sunday – Jackpot!
Just a couple of outfits this week… We had our first REAL snow in the night last night. My favourite moment of the day was putting the boys in front of a window, opening the curtains & seeing their eyes light up in wonder & joy as they looked out at the beautiful, white snow. … More Fashion on Friday – First Real Snow of the Season!
