Life Lately

Monday, December 24, 2012

1 // I got new kitty shoes! I already had a brown pair but these ones have little ears and it makes all the difference. I'm smitten!
2 // My bug collection is growing. Everything I currently have is dry and ready to be put in a shadow box (pretty sure Santa Claus has one under the tree for me!). I'm having so much fun identifying everything.
3 // I recently hung this old wedding photo I've been hanging on to in my craft room beside my computer. My dad saved it and three others from the same set from being thrown away and gave them to me. I just don't understand who could get rid of something so special. Isn't it such a wonderful photo?
4 & 5 // Still collecting beach glass! Off season at the beach is so much more fun than summer time.
6 & 7 // A peek at the new couch and Leaf enjoying it. I'm so excited to see how the couch looks in the living room when all the Christmas decor isn't up. It feels a little too crowded for my tastes with the tree up.
8 // A freshly cleaned rat skull. I'm becoming quiet efficient at the process of cleaning skulls. This is the first small skull that I've cleaned from start to finish and been 100% happy with. Some of the others I've done I've accidentally damaged because small skulls are just so fragile but this guy turned out perfect. I'm so proud.
9 // I got the most amazing box of tooth goodies for my collection from an awesome blog reader (Thank you SO much Irene!)
10 // I've been planning some posts for the new year. Starting to use a brand new planner is so satisfying.
11 // More earthstars! While taking outfit pictures at the park I remembered this was the around the same time that I found those earthstars last year so I sprinted over to where they were and sure enough there were some!

Hope you all have a fantastic Christmas eve! I'm off to finish getting ready, spend some time with family and eat lots of tasty food.
xoxo!

  7. I LOVE your random collections. I love picking up rocks, driftwood, leaves, skulls, and shells from my husband and my travels. Like your bug pinning too, my husband is an Entomologist so that is a very familiar scene in our home. Happy Holidays, love your blog!

    1. I'm loving it! It was definitely a little too firm for my tastes at first but it's quickly becoming super cozy. :)
