School’s out for the summer, leaving us a little extra time to stretch, be lazy, wear pajamas and do things other than school. Like, organize our garage and other organizational to dos (see also organize closets). I’ll spare you the victorious pictures of a clean garage and instead share a few pretty little things.
Pretty, little things are the best. Don’t you think?
I got this advent calendar kit from Purl Soho a few months ago. I’ve been wanting a cute advent calendar to share with my kiddos. Usually, this desire returns right as advent season begins, which isn’t the ideal time to start one. So with school out I finally started working on it. Hopefully it will be finished by advent.
We also found time to go to the nursery and buy some baby succulents. I’m ever so slowly delving into gardening. Well I shouldn’t call it gardening, but keeping plants alive. A plant added here and there over a few years means we are up to almost five I haven’t killed.
You know, my mother had some handmade beaded ornaments on her tree when I was growing up. I remember thinking the ornaments are beautiful but I could never imagine beading ornaments. Yet here I am – beading ornaments. Never say never!
And finally, on my run to Target earlier in the week I was shocked to find wee peonies for sale. I squealed with delight (literally… probably a frequent occurrence at Target actually. I’m easily delighted by pretty, little things) and brought them home. Speaking of me
gardening not killing plants, I would love to grow peonies… Not sure how that’s going to happen. But never say never.
