home for the holidays

getting geared up for the holidays:)
I love this time of year, although we haven't seen too many pretty leaves yet and it got really cold really fast....
I'm excited to be cooking thanksgiving dinner this year (I've only done it once before, about 3 years ago), and I'm practicing my recipes and we got our oven fixed! That's helpful when cooking things larger than 4 or 5 ounces. Hopefully friends and family will all be able to make it, and I'll be able to get my island finished before then. It's feeling a little neglected at the moment, but it will get some lovin' soon.
I must be in the mood to work on wood lately, because the little holiday ornaments from last year are making a comeback:

last year I made a lot with little vintage children peering out of windows, this year I can't get enough of the tiny bunting banners made from postage stamps!
You can never have enough bunting strewn about~

just a little wrist jewelry for fall~

I'm a little gaga over the tiny mother of pearl vintage buckles I found.
also, yay! I figured out how to get my followers to show up again on the sidebar! I'm glad to see all of your happy shining faces again :)
