This feels like a very grown up outfit for me. There's nothing really outrageous, other than my hair. For the most part, this is a pretty chill outfit and surprisingly enough I'm really into it. This sweater is definitely something I would pass right by in the store, never giving it a second look but I actually really love it. It was one of my surprise items in this month's Golden Tote (more info on Golden Tote here!) As soon as I put it on I was smitten. It just fits really well, is cozy and looks great. I have a feeling it will be in heavy rotation this winter. It's so great to find items that are simple, and easy to just throw on with anything without much thought. I'd like to fill my closet with those pieces.

I've been poking around the tracks a lot lately. I didn't grow up around train tracks. I actually can't think of any anywhere near my parent's house but I always wished there were some close. I like that it's a little escape from the city to be near the tracks. It's quiet except for when there is actually a train, there's usually no one else around, and on top of that, they're a nice place to take pictures. I certainly wouldn't mind living a bit closer.

PS. Ya like that rock by my foot that I used as a marker for the spot that was in focus? Definitely meant to kick it out of frame. Hah!

318 : 365 View from the couch.
 319 : 365 A quick little project. You can see it finished here.
320 : 365 Instax wide photos from a snowy cemetery. I'm not really a fan of the cold but I'm trying my hardest not to let it keep my indoors. I still want to get out and take photos just as often as in the nice weather.
321 : 365 My beautiful plants.
322 : 365 Two critters who love laying in the morning sunlight.
323 : 365 I've been REALLY good about not buying any more plants but I recently stumbled into a garden center and couldn't resist bringing home a christmas cactus. Just over a week later and I was rewarded with blooms. I think I'm really going to like this plant!
324 : 365 I've been having vision problems the last few months so I finally sucked it up and went to the optometrist. I still have 20/20 vision but since I'm almost always using the computer my eye muscles are constantly tired and having trouble focusing. I got a very small prescription for glasses that should help me out. I'm really excited to finally get this problem taken care of and I'm also pretty pumped to shop for glasses now. I'm getting these beauties but I'm also eyeing up (heh!) this pair and this pair.

This photo is related because since I got my pupils dilated that day I had to wear these really high tech shades home. I had biked there and thought I could just deal with the brightness because I mean, I wouldn't want to look uncool on my bike. Half way home it was just too bright, and I had to put them on. Haha.
 325 : 365 Hit up my first estate sale in quite a while and made out like a bandit. I went because it advertised craft supplies and I did not leave disappointed. I got a ton of embroidery thread and some hoops for dirt cheap. I almost forgot how great buying craft supplies feels (and how absolutely addicting it is!) Right before I was about to check out I spotted a little stuff crocodile. Score!

Positively obsessed with this shirt! I would wear the heck out of it.
Don't mind me, just drooling over opal jewelry again. Look how beautiful this necklace is.

The whole Winter Cabin Collection shop is just the dreamiest.
Every year I get a little too giddy about getting a new calendar. How great is this one?!

 I am all about these shelves! Those are absolutely adorable and certainly would look cute with some of my little collections filling them.
I don't normally dress up for holidays. Family get togethers are always low key for us. BUT if we were into getting dressed up, this would 100% be my holiday dress.

Jo from Lost in the Haze recently shared the cutest vase on her blog. How adorable is that!?

I don't know if it's because I'm writing this post late at night or what but this card definitely made me giggle-snort.

Can't believe it's time for my monthly call for sponsors! Are you Etsy shop or small business owner? Maybe a blogger? December is approaching which is prime time for advertising. Not only are folks doing holiday shopping (I mean, my mom has already been doing that for months!) but with the weather cooling off more people are online. I'd love to introduce you + your business to my awesome readers!

Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year is coming up and as a special anyone who purchases ad space before the 25th of November will have the opportunity to share their sale in my annual Black Friday post. It's an excellent way to get your sale out there!

The XL ad space is available starting December 2nd. The XL ad space is the prime ad on the blog, always on top of the other ads and always the first to be seen! Below that are the large and small ads. Both of which are available to go live today. I offer a discount when you purchase 3 months at time! Even more than that I'm running a special until the 1st of December, use code "BLACKFRIDAY" for 10% off any size ad.

You can purchase ad space directly through my advertising page! So what are you waiting for? You can find all my updated stats, read more about the spaces available and purchase right here. Space is limited, so don't miss out!
If you're interested in working together in anyway this holiday season just shoot me over an email!
