Happy Autumn

I am quite sad to see summer go, but I will wish everyone a happy autumn today and think about next summer when I will spending those warm months with D. and our little baby. To think that next summer there will be a baby!


I made these perfect circles with this...


A circle cutter. I could have spent a lot of time yesterday making perfect circles. There really are craft tools for just about everything.


In honor of the beginning of autumn, I've been crafting a harvest looking wreath. The change of seasons does inspire me to craft, I have a whole long list of projects to make.


Here is the wreath I am crafting, click here for the DIY from A Beautiful Mess.

Yummy Soup

Last year as a wedding present, I was given a year's subscription to Martha Stewart Living but sadly this is my last month to receive the magazine. (I can't believe I've been married almost a year already!) 


The current issue has a delicious recipe for Chinese Broccoli and Soba Noodle Soup. My honey and I decided to make it the other day and it was sooooo good!


The empty tea cup was soon to be filled with ginger tea, which was the perfect compliment for the Asian soup.


Topped with limes and chilis. We are fortunate enough to live close by an Asian grocery store so we easily found the Chinese broccoli (I never even heard of it until I made this recipe) and the soba noodles. The soba noodles were quite tasty and rather filling since they are made out of buckwheat flour. If you happen to pick up the current issue, you won't be disappointed in this yummy soup!

Daydreaming of a Cuckoo Clock


Last week my mom went to Germany for the weekend, she lives in Belgium so she can easily do this kind of thing, and I asked her to keep her eyes peeled for a cuckoo clock for me. Well she found some...all priced between $750-$1,000! Now I don't doubt that the craftsmanship is excellent, but that is definitely not in my budget. Then I remembered how I saw this picture on hello, friend's blog.

This got me thinking about how I could just make my own cuckoo clock. Today, while in my history of WWII class, I found myself gazing out the window at a pine tree thinking about how excellent some dangling pinecones would look hanging from my soon-to-be cuckoo clock. I will be sure to post how I make my clock once I gather all of my supplies. In the meantime here are some cute clocks made from Black Forest Works.



I like this one, I think I will be adding some bears to my clock, but I also want to add some fawns and don't bears eat fawns?

There's A New Boy in Town



That's right, there's a new boy.


And he'll be here in about 13 more weeks.


We are quite happy. ♥
