Rubie Green is an eco-friendly textile designer that I have the utmost admiration for. Her fabrics are incredibly warm and romantic. Simply gorgeous!
“It’s a barefoot walk in the sand; it’s a lazy afternoon nap, and it’s your first sight of the Mediterranean coast. It’s life at its simplest, and nature in its wordless beauty. Here at Rubie Green, our mission is to dress your surroundings in fabrics that represent vitality, energy, comfort and style, all while maintaining respect to the environment by using only 100% organic cotton.

We know that natural does not mean boring, and that interiors make a house a home.” -creative philosophy of Rubie Green
My dream is to have my two wing chairs upholstered with this fabric. They would look too good to be true! A luxurious dream.
So I know I've already posted about a necklace idea a few days ago, but recently I've been browsing Etsy for more fun jewlery for holiday gift giving. There are sooo many fun and adorable necklaces out there how will I ever tell about them all. Obviously you can do your own searching, but here are some more necklaces I think are just peachy:
This is one of my go-to reads. It's the first blog I visit in the morning and the last one I click on at night. Oh, Pioneer Woman, how you make me laugh with your witty humor, make my stomach rumble with your cooking, and tug at my heartstrings with your love for your children.
What should you get that special guy in your life?
Here are just a few ideas for the men that you love...
I think they have some great dress shirts at Lands End this year. Having a boyfriend that doesn't like to shop many places but the thrift store, I think one of these would be perfect for him this year- especially with his new job.
This pattern is my favorite, but there are many, many to choose from!
I found this new blog, The Sister Project, which is a fun site all about sisters and sisterhoods of all kinds. With three different blogs in one, there is sure to be some interesting reads over at TSP. Check it out!
'A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves—a special kind of double.'
We're celebrating right here at my apartment this year, which is really nice and relaxing and I'm thankful for that! I watched the parade this morning in my PJ's and with a hot cup of coffee. Then I set to work making the celery root and apple puree. I taste tested it about an hour ago and it is DELICIOUS! I've been taking spoonfuls here and there when no one is looking. Hopefully there will still be some left for the feast.
I am thankful for oh so many things this year. For my family and friends, my wonderful new job, being able to keep in touch and have great times with the people closest to me, and finally finishing up my masters in just a few short weeks!
Check out this episode of barefoot contessa for delicious ideas for Thanksgiving dinner. I myself am planning on making the celery root and apple puree (minute 7:16 in the video). YUMMY. It sounds and LOOKs delectable.
Welcome to my blog! Here's a place for me to keep in touch... to let you know what I am up to and share with you some of my favorite things. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoy writing it. Be well and come back often!
