it's getting cozy

Last Sunday, we went to the flea market quickly just to pick up some goodies we bought at Alameda, but had no space in our car to bring down. We walked around just enough for me to find these pretty vintage plates. I bought them for a vintage plate collector I know, but now I am thinking I may keep one or two for myself.

Well, it seems that Fall weather has finally sunk in southern California. This week has brought grey skies and even some rain. I am totally lovin' it. I even stay in pajamas all day long. All week long I have been purging and cleaning all over the house (thanks to my friend who inspired me after we stayed at their super clean house), but at night when all the girls are in bed, I settle in bed to do some cozy crafting while watching a sappy movie.

We have no plans for the weekend cause Ben has been feeling ill, so we are waiting for him to get better, but once he is, I am definitely in the mood to do something spontaneous. What are you in the mood for this weekend?


  1. fall is at its peak here in michigan, so i am in the mood for a mini fall color tour and a trip to a cider mill / pumpkin patch :) i am also in the mood for CRAFTING - it's been way too long!

  2. Oh how pretty those plates look. I'd have a party just to show off those plates.

  4. Oh, man...I want an evening of crocheting in front of a sappy movie!

    Hope Ben feels better soon and you guys get another little adventure close to home!

  9. Here is allready winter, cold winter. Turin is becomming grey and I miss the blue sky so much. But yes, it's great to be in pigdjama all the day long...
    The plates are cool, Keep one of them!

  10. What beautiful plates ... I think I would find it too hard to part with any of them! Gorgeous!

  11. That sounds like my kinda weekend. I too am feeling quite sick so I'm hunkered in this Sunday afternoon with hot soup and trying to fit in finishing my daughters Halloween costume by the end of next week!

  12. Hi there,

    I love the vintage plates you picked up at the flea market and noticed the one on the bottom right of the photo. That is exactly the same one that my great-grandmother used to serve her ravioli's on every Sunday. I have it now but it is so worn that I can't read the maker of the plate. Have any ideas? I'd love to add to this collection.

    Love your blog!
