Mondays are usually housework and organizing days for me but the weather was finally not completely freezing today so I decided to put off my chores til later and enjoy this day because it could snow again any time! The neighborhood has so many pretty buildings and this one had little green splashes of soft moss all over the cracks in ground.







Little splashes of green remind me that the days will start to get longer again soon as spring will be here before I know it. Maybe this winter I'll spend some time repainting my bicycle and getting new tires so I can ride when it warms up.


Today I wore a skirt that I made this past spring but I don't think it has appeared on the blog yet. Its just a simple gathered skirt with adorable retro style beauty shop fabric from Cotton and Steel from their beauty shop collection. They have the cutest fabrics. Every time I'm looking for a great novelty print, they're my first stop. I used the dental floss method to gather all of this yardage and since I tried it once, I'll never go without dental floss in my sewing basket again!



  Its still a little chilly today so I wore capri pants under my skirt for a little warmth but the skirt is long enough that you can't tell! I may get some fleece lined leggings and trim them down to capri length for more under skirt coziness this winter.

This funny brooch was one I made from a jewelry finding that I spotted at the craft store years ago. I just glued a pin back on. The little hands move like a real sign!





After my walk I went home to find the mail lady filled my mail box with black friday ads and reminded me to get cracking on the housework. I'm hoping to organize the living room a little bit and get ready to decorate for Christmas this weekend. I can't believe its that time already! Although fall is my favorite season, I always get excited about setting up our aluminum Christmas tree. Its so colorful and fun and it really helps brighten the winter time. Have you started decorating for Christmas yet or are you waiting til December?
