We'll be home from December 14-25. We Can't wait to spend lots of time hanging out in SLC, celebrating a few weddings, welcoming one of our favorite missionaries home, seeing the new babies, and all the usual Holiday fun!

Just a couple of snapshots from a baby shower I helped throw recently. It was perfectly pink! The theme for the shower was, "There's a bun in the oven" so we tried to stick to the whole concept of baking, hence the cookie cutters and recipe cards as favors! I am pretty sure I consumed my body weight in mini-cupcakes since we had three different flavors to choose from!

I am starting to hate J. Crew and this is why. I hate it because I love it, I hate it because every time they put new stuff online I know exactly what I want to buy and exactly what I will wear it with and it is sort driving me nuts! I just got rid of a huge pile of clothes and now I have empty drawers just begging to be filled up with new fall clothes! Someone please help me!
Love the knotted pearls and the deep forest green!
I bought last years verison of this cardigan in grey and it has been a favorite!a little something warm and wooly!
just when I start to worry animal prints are going out of style, they come back in!

Our brother in law Brad never ceases to entertain. He is one of the most upbeat, fun loving and smartest guys we know! We sure miss playing blokus with him but hopefully we'll get together a family tournament soon! Happy birthday Brad, hope you have fun celebrating at the cabin! We love you! Our present to you is a free place to stay when you come to NY, hope to see you soon!

Any of you Brits out there will be happy to hear that Topshop.com now ships to the US. You may be wondering how I discovered this since it isn't really publicized anywhere on their site, but you will be happy to know there are posters all around New York advertising this glorious fact!I am not sure what the shipping charges are like, but it is nice to know that if you found something you couldn't live without, you could have it sent across the pond! I've posted a few of my favorites above.

I am on their mailing list which means they send me some free designs by e-mail. These are some of the pretty little patterns I discovered in my inbox and I had to share. These are textile patterns from the 18th century-are you in love with them too?
Since my introduction to dover I have started to accumulate a little collection of clip art books and I am always happy with what I find. You can purchase them online, at Barnes and Noble, and occasionally I have found them at craft and scrapbook stores.They have everything from holiday silhouettes to Victorian fashions, so do yourself a favor and go check them out!
