December Favorites

I joked with my last post. It wasn't my last one of the year.

But this is definitely my last one. Maybe. Or not.

You know, I don't really feel like committing to that decision right now..


This year has brought some pretty fun things across my path. And when I get to experience beautiful or fun things, I like to tell other people about them so that they too can experience them.

Since Christmas is two days away, you can be sure this is not a sales-pitch post. This is purely me raving about a few things that I like. So bookmark for future reference. And as the year closes, I like collecting and gathering, harvesting and noting, and saving. So let's just call this one my December favorites list.

:: My friend Lindsey over at Worship Rejoices thought I was kidding when I first told her about this lip balm. But then she tried it. And ordered it. And so the story goes. My brave niece even tried it and said blissfully, "I love unicorn farts!" THIS STUFF IS MY FAVORITE. May I never be deprived of this lip-saver in my future. Long Winter Farm is just a pretty store too and I want to shop there more, simply because of the name.

:: These two books have been sweet additions to our family discussions of faith, Jesus, the Gospel and our hearts — Glimpses of Grace by Madeleine L'Engle — This book was rescued from a $3 bin at a thrift store, and it's been a sweet companion to my days ever since.  Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing — rich, rich, rich. My heart has needed these words.

:: EVERYTHING AT TERRAIN. I just snagged a few things from their holiday sale, and I feel like I've bought the world. (Not really, but you know what I mean.)


:: THIS NECKLACE by Mishakaudi. I want to wear it with everything, all day long. I'm super picky about my accessories, and generally skip them all together if they're not just right, but this one is perfect. It's hammered brass and quality work and not expensive and I pretty much just wanted to buy their entire store. Also, I've found myself as a girl who tries to keep my closet and jewelry rack streamlined, that adding superfluous accessories to my collection is just confusing. I only keep what I know will work with a myriad of outfits. And this one? KEEPER.

Enjoy your Christmas, sweet friends. And while I'm at it, just in case I don't pop back in here again, Happy New Year!

  1. I do love me some Unicorn Farts.

    I will look into all suggestions minus your triangle freaklace. I could not pull that one off without getting slapped. You, my dear, wear it beautifully.
