'tis the season -

to be completely freaked out.

i think that it might be in your best interest to check out this website and possibly do a background check on the santa you take your kid to.


get'em while they are hot.

please keep these warm headbands in mind while shopping for the sister, daughter, friend or wife on your christmas list this year. they are priced low enough to be a great stocking stuffer and have high enough quality to be a gift for under the tree!

*two sales already this week in the shop so you folks better check them out the newest items listed before they fly out the door!


crude but necessary

say no more.

mind you - this item is 'sold out' in the shop. just my luck.

*click HERE to see more. trust me you're gonna want to see more.


i have

been feeling ambitious and crafty as of recent. good thing cause we had zero holiday decorations for our little basement abode.

so, what happens when you put lindsay ross and kayti oldham together? two obsessive perfectionists who spend four hours creating one measley little snowflake garland out of felt and buttons.

i love it in our house, but i owe lindsay my right leg now.

hey mr oldham,

what do you think about this idea for our christmas tree this year?


where the whild things are,

meets reality.

i really love this home {at least from what i can tell by just seeing the outside}. i think this would be a fabulous little nest for any lovely couple.
doesnt it remind you - kinda sorta - of the forts that they built in 'where the wild things are'. kinda magical, me thinks.


new in the shop.

stop by strawberry fields forever today and check out the newly listed items!

*thanks to all of my awesome sister in laws for the fantastic pictures <3


i am ready

for the snow to arrive.

lets be honest it is far past due and the air is certainly cold enough to welcome its arrival. i am anticipating making a snowman in our front yard and walking around in the quite peace of snow at night.



one thing my man will never understand is the mere fact the presentation of the gift must be just as wonderful, if not better than, the actual gift. the past few wedding showers we have gone to i have had to suck it up and allow the mr. to hand over a handwritten note along with a check - that, however, will not slide this season.

last year i made my own wrapping paper {more on that later} and this year i think i may just take that one step further. check out this tutorial to make your own christmas bows!
