~Old & New~

This is my new Anthropologie apron. I bought it last weekend when I went to Geneva Commons with my family. Anthro was the only store I went to(he-he). I bought this with Christmas in mind. I have decided that for every holiday I host I am going to buy myself a new apron. I asked Bill for a sewing machine for Christmas....maybe by this time next year I will be making my own aprons! How exciting is that thought??

These are the stockings for everyone. Four of them are new. I'm not sure why but EVERY year I have to buy at least three new stockings. If I felt like they would come back from year to year I may actually buy corrdinating stockings. Actually, I like the 70's style of them not matching. It makes me feel good. I sure wish I could remember the stockings we had as kids.

This is our new advent calendar I picked up a couple weeks ago. I think it's adorable. It sure beats that nasty chocholate in the advent calendars I usually buy. You know the one, the chocolate tastes like plastic. This year I put a Hershey Kiss in it for each day. Now I wake up to Bradley saying "Mommy, I'm going to go get my chocolate"....sad part is that it is usually around 6:00 am and I say "OK". My thought process is Christmas only comes once a year AND if he goes downstairs maybe he will turn the TV on and I can go back to sleep for a half hour or so.

I love Anthropology!!! You MUST get a sewing machine!!! Nothing beats making a homemade thingy!! Have you seen The Apron Book? I bought mine at Barnes and Noble and it is very inspiring.

That is the cutest advent piece I have ever seen!!! Any chocolate?

Your apron is great. I also love all the stockings lined up in a row on your fireplace! Maybe I need a few more too!
Don't laugh...I didn't have a digital camera until Friday night. I got a Canon powershot. I love it so far. I'd love to have a step at a time!
