Friday Five


This scarf drew my attention right away as I was looking through the Boden Christmas catalog.  It is almost a sure thing that I will enjoy anything that features London.

So maybe you aren't Christmas shopping yet, but I am starting to pick up stocking stuffers already. This pen is something I found on the Marbles The Brain Store website.  It reminds me of the four color pens of my childhood that all the girls loved to have.

A few years ago my girls had a subscription to Little Passports that they loved. At the time I only purchased it for three months, and I have heard Little Sister ask for this to come again over and over ever since it expired. I have finally relented, because the "stuff" they send is good stuff.  I have had magazine subscriptions that no one reads, but this is something that my girls looked forward to receiving in the mail.  And I loved seeing them working together, heads bent over their maps, enjoying the artifacts and activities that allow them to learn more about various countries.

I have not a creative bone in my body, but my high school co-op is great about trying to help me carry out some of my ideas.  I have already showed her this tree that I'd like to have in the library for Christmas.

I am still trying to decide on a winter hat.  The girls have pretty much taken over any of the winter stuff I have, and I can't pretend that I can just go the entire winter without it.  It was 30 below zero the other night (with windchill).  I really like this hat from Eddie Bauer, and today they have 40% off.

The book fair has kept me busy this week, so the internet browsing hasn't been as easy.  We'll see what I can come up with next week.

I like that hat because it doesn't scream Winter to me.

That scarf! I bought wrapping paper form the fundraiser catalog, you know, the terribly expensive $9 a roll stuff only because of the British print I found!

Love the book Christmas tree. I made one at our library last year and it received tons of comments.
