Fashion Inspiration

I came across this picture recently and LOVE this look!
So much in fact that I would love it for myself :)

(I could not find the source, if you know please share!) little fashionista and myself decided to try and duplicate this look with what Lucy already has in her closet!

I ♥ My Valentine {and my Hunters!}


I have joined the masses, and now have my beloved Hunter Wellies!

My sweet Hubby gave them to me as a gift this Valentine's Day...I love that he knows me so well...(or maybe it was my incessant chatter for the past few months of my huge NEED for this lovelies!)

I know they come in a bazillion different colors and styles these days, but all I have ever dreamed of were the classics...original tall green wellies...the kind Princess Di wore....and I think green goes with least now it does :) 


 When I went to get them I thought I would cave and choose a cool color, but nope, when I saw them...I knew♥

Do You Ever??


...set up a Hot Cocoa Station?

This is one of my kids, and well MY favorite little places.
I set out a tray with jars full of hot cocoa, marshmallows, gourmet sipping chocolate and a few pretty mugs...and it seems to just call you over to make yourself a cup.
(this was a little dressed up for Valentine's Day)

(My DARLING mugs and sipping chocolate in the cutest tins ever...were a gift from a very sweet friend, Diane,  whom I only know from "blogland".  She sent these to me along with a wonderful candle and a book about Chinese New Year for Lucy after we had our little ER visit a few weeks ago.  She knew just what these Girls needed!)

Diane, thank you so much for taking the time to do this for are a treasure! xoxo
