5 things: a cozy weekend

November 21, 2011

{one: Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies... topped with a little sea salt, of course! i found this yummy recipe from the lovely cookie-lover{slash}blogger at Cupcakes and Cashmere. see recipe here!}

what a wonderful weekend! the only question is... how did that FLY BY so fast?!?! here are a couple pics & pieces from our little weekend. other then staying warm & out of the rain, there were some arts n' crafts checked off the list, a little flea market shopping (to be expected) and a fun party with our fire department peeps! so yes, fun was had by all! annnnnnnd i may have given the fireman his birthday present a week early, opps! i was just SO excited about it that i couldn't resist and guess what (?) he LOVED it! stay tuned to see what this lucky guy got for his b-day... i'll post about it on friday {on the big guys actual birthday}! what did you guys do this cozy-rainy weekend???

*i know it's a bit early to show you the newest addition to my Christmas Decor... but i promise i won't put it out until i have Thanksgiving left-over's in my fridge!{two: My Homemade Jewelry. i made quite a little collection of colorful necklaces, this cozy weekend in! a girlfriend of mine is hosting a fabulous holiday (Art's n Crafts) party this coming weekend... and she asked me to sell a few of my necklaces! so here are a few of my little collection! these puppies will be available SOON to purchase here!}{three: A Good Foodie Read. since it was a cozy rainy weekend in, the fireman and i picked up a mag we'd both like to read! so the Food Lovers Guide to LA it was! i always get some helpful tips and a yummy new restaurant to add onto our LA food to-do-list!}
{four: My new {& favorite} Vintage Christmas Ornaments. over the weekend i hit up my favorite flea market (remember these past posts here & here?). well i scored again! and stubbled upon this colorful set of glass bulbs that will either sit in a big glass bowl or on our little tree this Christmas season. i love the mint greens & bright pinks!}
{five: A Post Rainy-Day Sunset. after all the rain had cleared, we had such a stunning sunset in Manhattan Beach.}



how was your weekend? do you know what you're bringing for Thanksgiving yet?!?
have a fabulous week! xo, the gal!

Those cookies look amazingly good, with the big ol' chunks of chocolate in them!
I love your vintage baubles..so pretty. I have a couple sets of my own as well..I think I prefer the vintage ones over the newer ones (though it can be very hard to find any to buy, at times).
Have a lovely week

What a perfect weekend!

Those cookies sound amazing, I'm obsessed with sea salt and those necklaces are so beautiful and delicate!

Still haven't decided what I should make for Thanksgiving. I'd better hurry up and pick something!
