The first two items for Wednesday Loves this week have to do with my last post where I mentioned that our neighbor just gave us a bunch of birch logs. These two photos give some great inspiration for what to do with them...
I adore this next photo... particularly because we also have white stockings and oddles of candles... now to create this for our Christmas mantle.
Sticking with the cool weather / Christmas theme for a minute: doesn't this hot chocolate bar look divine? I'd gain 20 pounds and probably not regret one of them (until I had to go running the next morning for six hours).
Completely unrelated to the first three photos... I want to write our house number like this on our front door. When I first got this Blueprint magazine years ago (it's was a Martha Stewart mag) I ripped this right off the cover and saved it.
I found an easy DIY project on Pinterest to make a simple centerpiece for Drew's birthday. I'm collecting glass bottles and I'm going to spray paint them the colors of his party... although when we were at Home Depot yesterday they didn't exactly have the colors I wanted... plans may change.
Danielle pinned this to her Pinterest page and I'm in love with it. Normally I don't love bedrooms decorated for Christmas but her comment "Classy Christmas Bedroom LOVE LOVE LOVE" summed it up pretty well. :)
I had these noble ideas to make all my own baby food for Drew, well, the fact of the matter is, he just doesn't like it as much as he likes this Happy Tot brand I get at Target. It's all organic and has a great blend of fruits and veggies (or some just have fruit) in each one. I've sampled it so I would know what Drew is eating and let me tell you, the spinach, pea and apple one isn't that bad... :)
Whenever I go to Market Basket I become like a senior citizen (no offense, Gram, because I can't see you doing this) and I head straight to the day old bread shelf. I always thought that sounded sort of gross but it was made the day before (as the name appropriately indicates) and it tastes perfectly and it's half or more off! There is this one company that I'm in total love with now: Jessica's Brick Oven (http://www.jessicasbrickoven.com/) and she has the most amazing cinnamon french toast bread and asiago cheese bread... and it's all natural. None of the photos do it justice so I'm not even going to put one in but visit the website.
I better scoot because Drew has dropped Cherrios and english muffin bits all over the living room and it looks like I now live in a slum house. Ciao!
