Link Love

Prettiest stationary I've ever seen.
Actually the cutest doormat.

A really great way to have lots of plants in a small space. Sky garden!

Our New Library

Did you hear? Hamilton has a new library, and it's actually so amazing. I stole these photo's from Hollie...
How amazing is that vertical garden? I'm so in love.
The kids area is so cute. Miniature everything.
Way to go, Hamilton! Your libraries have always had great service, but this is above and beyond. Can't wait until the neighbor to this lovely place opens up - the new Hamilton Farmer's Market!

Christmas Time!

So, I'm back after a lovely Christmas. We spent time with my family and Kevin's family and just at home relaxing. It was so great to have a week off work, and to sleep in, and be with my man with nothing to do...

Here's some video's from our family Christmas parties, filmed with my new birthday Zumi!

I made Kevin's mom a quilt for Christmas. When his Grandpa passed away, Grandma was giving away some of his things to the grandchildren, and Kevin and I got a bunch of his old dress-shirts. They didn't fit, and I knew we needed to do something special with them. The quilt - it wasn't perfect at all, but I'm very pleased with how it turned out. You can see it a bit in the above video (at about 1:10)...

And my family! My little nephew Ben is so cute with his cookie indecision:

What a great Christmas.

O Holy Night

Our church had our first Christmas Eve service tonight, and it was so beautiful...
I hope you get the blessing of spending these days surrounded by people you love. Merry Christmas, everyone!

Last-minute gift wrapping...

You're probably done all your Christmas shopping by this time, but if you haven't wrapped everything yet, I've got some ideas for you!

And lastly, this is what Kevin and I are doing for our gift wrap this year. We used the stencils that we bought for this project and thrift-shop piano music:

Happy wrapping!
