HOPE YOU'RE HAVING A LOVELY WEEKEND!


it is the grizzliest, ickiest kind of portland winter day out today. the mist is soup thick and the wet chill cuts straight through to your bones. first thing when we got home from church i got a fire going in the fireplace and i have been slow-cooking myself next to it while watching season one of downton abbey ever since.

the rest of portland obviously has this same idea, because the air outside smells so very good, like wet pine needles and a hundred dry chimney fires.

here's what you may have missed last week over at babble:

(this one was SO FUN to put together.
i'm only mildly obsessed with my green skinnies from target.) 
(p.s. if you go to target to buy them,
size up a size or two.
those are some strangely sized pants, target.)

a really rad craft using old toys i can't wait to try
(neons and metallics may be my new favorite combination in the world.)

(sometimes they can look a little playboy bunny, but these don't, pinky swear!)

and, of course, huck's blog!

hope you enjoy them!

  1. first of all. portland is my favorite. born and raised there. i came to love the rain and over cast. silly, i know, but it feels like home that way.

    second. Downton Abbey is my guilty pleasure. i absolutely love everything about it. and I've watched Season 1 and Season 2 and the Christmas Special at least two times each. Soooo good. (i had to find Season 2 and Christmas Special on-line since it was airing in Britain but not USA.)

  5. Wait.. which portland? Oregon? Because I thought it was insanely nice here in Oregon today. The sun was shining and it wasn't miserably wet and cold like most January days. :)

  16. I'm loving Downton Abbey! And I started watching Mad Men right before you started posting about it, so I think we might be TV soulmates. Sorry if that creeps you out.

  17. I love Downton Abbey! Can't wait for the second season! Kate Morton's books are similar if you're into that kind of thing. =)
