One of the hardest parts of moving was leaving our precious little home in Torrance. I spent the greater part of the year making it a home and loved every part of it. From the old windowsills to the fun little kitchen, the house has a charm of its own that was easy for me to adorn.
And although our little home will be greatly missed, I take with me the memories and look forward to more ventures and more little (and big) houses to decorate.

Between moving, work and baby madness I haven't had much of a chance to decorate this Holiday season but I've managed to squeeze in a little creativity and even put up my version of a Christmas tree...
A couple weekends ago I spent an entire Sunday experimenting with felting (on which I was instantly hooked) and I made some Christmas ornaments for my little tree. I tied 3 sparkly branches together and stuck them in a tin bucket adorned with pine cones and voila, my tree was done. I wish I had more time to add a garland but oh well, there's always next year!
Even gifting is taking a back seat this year which is a bit more depressing since I enjoy wrapping so damn much so instead I will recycle a post I did for Pacsun Community last year on eco-friendly wrapping. I think this year if I was to wrap more presents I would definitely use felted balls and string. Clearly, it's a felted kind of Christmas.
And speaking of my new addiction, here is a Matryoshka doll I made for my friend. More to come!

Scored this tee from the beau and these leggings from the sample sale. I kind of love both.
I got this leather jacket from downtown L.A. last year and I've definitely gotten some use out of it. I hope the trend never dies.
