right this second…

I’m thinking about:
bringing my film camera back to life.

I want:
military gloves.
bright colored rain boots.
herringbone and tweed.

I’m preparing:
for Crafty Wonderland, next weekend – October 12.

part of me really likes:
the rain outside. I want to curl up with a new blanket and new socks.

this week I baked:
pumpkin pie and
butternut squash pie. {I posted the recipe on milk eggs chocolate!}

this week I also cooked:
the best mushroom soup ever.
the best lasagna ever. {my own recipe – I’ll post soon!}

I’m looking forward to:
spending time with dlb this weekend.
making more necklaces.
having a beer or two while enjoying the rain.

happy friday friends!

    Perfect. New socks are such a cozy thing, especially this time of year when wearing socks still feels like a novelty.

    PS. The necklaces are gorgeous. Good golly, lady!

    Ooo, you’re right – the military gloves are fantastic! *wondering if she has any spare yarn in the stash to do these with, or if she can justify another set of wristwarmers*
