How was everyone's Thanksgiving?

Mine was lovely!

I drove to cali to my cousin Lina's house for my Thanksgiving and got to see all my great family and friends, and eat lots of yummy food! I had this amazingly yummy tofu "turkey" as we call it, my mom makes every year and some different vege-loafs and all the wonderful sides, including this amazing sweet corn cake mexican stuff.

I made two vegan pies to bring, apple and pumpkin. (the two furthest in the back in the photo)

Their house was so cutely decorated, with bunting and flowers.

 Also a few pics of Lina's room and all her darling details and collections.

And the mini dreamcatcher I made her. :)

The last photo is of my brother, he just learned to play guitar.

.....Old fashioned

Photos and gloves.

I love finding old photos.

And adding to my ever growing collection of vintage gloves.

......7 degrees

So today, not only did I wake up to ice covered windows and doors and freezing blowing snow.....

I also have a cold.

How depressing.

Here are some photos, with my cat Chubba, who wants to actually go OUTSIDE in this. 

No way my dear.

.....Totoro gift

This week I received my birthday gift from Lina!

It came all the way from Australia and she got it on Etsy.
It is a little handmade Totoro, and he was wrapped up so cutely in yellow tissue paper and a red ribbon.

And Lina sent it in a shimmery golden bag she made and put bunting on the outside package!

Lina's attached note made me smile.

.....All over the world

Snow has arrived.

Beautiful Fall has officially ceased to be.

Minus the leather jacket from Express-American Eagle jean shirt-Levi jeans

Thrifted mesh faces dress turned into a shirt.

I love the feeling of Fall air.

It's just better then other air.

This teal soft heavy knit sweater is a recent thrifting find. 
As you might have noticed, I have been thrifting often these last few weeks, and have been finding good finds every time.

I found this amazingly cool gift idea at Trader Joe's today.

       And bought it for myself.   : )

I love the idea of this and I love dark chocolate. (because it is vegan!)

They are so cute individually wrapped in pretty paper. 

I almost don't want to eat them....Almost.

Update, my favorites are Tanzania and Peru.
  Sao Thome has a very interesting finish, almost spicy. I like them all.

DIY mustache shirt #2

I bought this white tee shirt at the Dollar Store for, well, a dollar. Can't beat that.
And drew on this mustache with a fabric marker.
 I think it came out nicely.

Just thrifted this skirt yesterday, it has really neat pleat work that makes a really fun flowy silhouette. 
And the print is great for layering.

......Knit gloves

I just love fingerless gloves, I could live in them quite happily. 

I love the color of these too, and the best part? They only cost me about 3$ at Target :)

 I love you cool weather.

I wait all summer for you.
