Life Lately

My niece Molly turned six months old a few days ago. I cannot believe how fast time is going.

She’s a champ at rolling over now and will be crawling before we know it!

It’s still balmy for this time of year here in the Northland so we’ve been taking advantage of it and going on daily hikes through the woods.

The peace that I feel in the woods is so comforting.

Winter’s here can be long and harsh. So, even when it’s cold and snowy outside, it’s still important for me to get some fresh air and sunshine, albeit for just a few minutes!

Favorite Weekly Shopping Finds

  • Pinecones are simple decor items that can be used through the Winter!

  • Christmas ribbon doubles as beautiful decor for the season.

If you are in the mood for a DIY, this Christmas garland with vintage sheet music is just the thing! With some paper and paint, you will have a lovely vintage-looking decor piece in no time.

Lastly, The Antiqued Journey Christmas candle collection is live in my shop! This is, by far, my most favorite candle collection that I’ve poured. I’m so proud of how they turned out and I hope you love them, too.

There are four brand new scents, each one smelling of a cozy and nostalgic Christmas. I hope you will take a minute to check them out.

There are only four candles remaining so get them before they sell out. Candles make amazing gifts!
