A big HUGE Thank you and some randomness...

Happy Tuesday everyone! It's a cold gloomy day here in SoCal and definitely feels Christmassy. Today is Noah's Christmas program at school and we are so excited to go watch him and his little friends sing their hearts out :)

First, I wanted to give  a HUGE HUGE thank you to my sweet friend Cassie! Not only is she SUPER talented and stylish, but she has the hugest heart and is one of my favorite people on the planet! The other day in the mail I received the most awesome package ever! Cassie made me some holiday cheer for my house and I'm dying to share it! LOOK.....
 It's hard to tell in the picture, but it is the most ADORABLE Frosty the Snowman paper bunting made out of a vintage book. OMG! I died when I saw it.
Is this not the most adorable thing you've ever seen!!?? If frosty decor was appropriate year round, this bad boy would be hanging up forever!!!
AND, if that wasn't the coolest, check out this awesome snow globe to go with it!!!!
I have seen a lot of cute handmade snow globes out there in blogland, but this one takes the cake! SO adorable I almost can't stand it! THANK YOU sweet friend, you rocked my world :)

In other random news, check out where Mr.Elf is spending the day today (getting in touch with his feminine side, ha ha)

I'm also happy to report that I'm finally starting to receive Christmas cards :) I thought one of two things was happening. Either my mail man was stealing my cards to pretend he has as awesome friends as I do, or I was being socially ousted for sending my own cards out sort of late every year. Luckily, it was the third option....none of my people were crazy early this year! Welcome to my world friends!! Mid December should NOT be considered late! So there!
And last but not least, I finally started some of my wrapping. I must have known that I was going to go the "colorful vintage" route this year because take a look at the wrapping paper I bought last year at Target after Christmas....
Could this be any more vintagey and perfect!!?? Yay me!! Ha ha!!!
Ok, that's all. Have a great great day!  xo


  1. Awww how sweet of her, that bunting is darling!!

  2. Wow, that bunting is super fabulous, jealous! And I figure it can stay up past Christmas a month or so for sure, Frosty can be winter decor. :) I just started receiving Christmas cards as well, it's so fun to get and display them. And some random questions, are you on pinterest?! I just realized I don't think you've ever mentioned it! Also, do you sew?
