Simply Breakfast

Being my favorite meal of the day, I flipped when I found this blog. Not only are the images that she captures every morning beautiful, but the idea behind this simple morning routine is refreshing.
"These works represent my continuous journey to slow down and discover the beauty in everyday life. I am inspired by nature, design, form and color." - Jennifer Causey
I think we all should take a little bit of time at the start of our days to just think... be.... dream... and then be inspired by those thoughts for the rest of the day :)

The Knitting World

So I am having to be much more creative this Christmas when it comes to gifts, being that my financial situation is at an all time low - as I am sure everyones is. I find great serenity in knitting so scarfs have been the choice of gift for a couple people in my life. A big warm colorful scarf :) Especially being that is 20 degrees in Oklahoma right now.

In my search to learn more about knitting and the incredible people that can knit some unbelievable things... I found this :)
Her name is Nguyen.
"It happens in those fragile moments before sleep sinks in. Thoughts float around, merge together, move apart. With my light-up pen, I scribble a drawing of a power cord in my idea book and write “knit” next to it."

...too bad these are like 100$ on -
Thats ok, it just inspires me to learn how to do it on my own, eh?
