The Weekend So Far

My weekend has been pretty full so far. Yesterday I got a mint chocolate shake
and went to the family farm and played with the doggies and the new puppy . He was apparently abandoned on the side of the road in the country :( but my family loves animals so they took him in. He has doubled in size already and is super clumsy and silly :)
We ate some yummy grilled steaks and veggies and talked with some friends for a while.
Then today I relaxed and went thrifting for a bit. Here are a couple of my finds
Later I will be posting some decorating finds. I am going to be moving again soon(probably) and the place needs a LOT of work.
Happy Weekend!

Homemade Air Freshener

I found a quick easy recipe for homemade room spray/air freshener on the re-nest blog. Check it out!

Homemade Chai

Its a dreary night in Tennessee, and I was thinking how good a cup of homemade chai would be, and I decided to share this recipe for homemade Chai that I found in Bust magazine

Put 12 cups of water in a large pot. throw in half a cup of loose black tea leaves or 5 or 6 tea bags. add 3 or 4 whole cinnamon sticks, 15 cardomom seeds, 10 whole cloves, 20 black peppercorns, half a tsp. of freshly grated nutmeg, and an inch of fresh ginger, sliced thinly. Top off with a couple of bay leaves. Let simmer for half an hour, then strain. To serve, fill mug 3/4 full of tea, and add milk to taste. Sweeten with sugar or honey.

Favorite Things Friday

I just thought I'd share some of my favorites from etsy. These are all vintage or vintage style finds.

Today my aunts came from Japan to visit my family. My grandfather (their brother) passed away recently and they weren't able to be here for the funeral, so they came to visit our family. They brought me lots of yuuuummmy Japanese snacks and candies-even strawberry filled Hello Kitty Marshmallows!

Everything is wrapped up so pretty-my favorite crackers come in light green and pink wrappers printed with vines and leaves

More pics to come later!

I miss you papa

What to post...?

Ive been thinking about making a blog for a long time. But there are time constraints, emotions, jobs, and so many other things to contend with...And if I overcome all my distractions, what will I write? Will anyone read it? Will I have good enough pictures? I guess I will figure all this out along the way...
