Happy Monday. Can you believe that today is the last day of November? I kinda can’t get over that – time has gone so slowly but also so fast. And I’ve now been in Charleston for a full week.
My weekend was pretty boring, to be honest, but that is not a bad thing. It was really nice after the stress of traveling and then getting settled in a new city. It was rainy and gross here so I watched a lot of TV (like a lot a lot, a potentially embarrassing amount… I got really into Queer Eye and watched the entire new season of Virgin River, amongst other things). Then I saw my mom for a walk and that was about it! (I still can’t get over the fact that we can even just meet for walks, it’s kind of just the best thing ever.)
I’m definitely starting to feel more at home in the cottage – for the first four or five nights I barely slept and the cat was going crazy and now we are both getting into a better routine. I love my neighborhood so much. I’m right by Colonial Lake and when it is nice out I just walk and walk and walk! I hope you had a great weekend!
This Week’s Good Things 11.30.20
Virgin River, Season 2
It’s baffling to me how much I love this show. I wasn’t into Gilmore Girls or Hart of Dixie, and I generally don’t like “slower” TV shows about small towns, or shows where nothing really happens – I tend to pick shows about lawyers, the FBI, or spies – lolz. But I love this one so much. It’s really soothing? This season was a little less soothing (gah! I need to talk to someone about THAT ENDING!!!), but so good. And you know I love an old people romance (there is a great one this season). I just really like this show. I watched the entire season Saturday night and Sunday day and am now devastated that I have to wait an entire year for the next one!
You know I love a fun new art discovery, and these paintings feel particularly relevant right now.. CHAOS! DON’T PANIC! My friend Rob is doing a show (at his gallery in Kent, CT if you’re in the area) with Sam Jablon and has been posting a ton of Sam Jablon’s work to his gallery’s instagram and I am very very much into all of it. Follow Sam on instagram right this way, and learn more about him in this article.
Holst & Lee at Anthropologie
I am SO proud and thrilled for my friend Natalie (one of my best friends in the world), as she is now carried at Anthropologie! This is such a huge deal and she is so talented. She makes the most gorgeous jewelry – they picked up a bunch of her amazing rope pieces. If you want more of her work, check out her new website, which looks absolutely beautiful.
Cute Kids Stuff at Amazon!
I was lucky enough to get to preview the Cyber Monday sale offerings today at Amazon and as I scrolled through the merch I realized there wasn’t a ton I wanted or needed but there sure is a lot I want for my nephews and niece. So here are some v v cute kids picks. I also have a whole “aunt life” section in my Amazon shop, but these items are CUTE. My niece Zoe absolutely “needs” this metallic puffer and maybe this cozy pink fleece too. Also, death by mini lumberjack cuteness.
Chappywrap Holiday Blankets
You know how much I looove my Chappywrap blankets and the holiday styles are so cute! They very nicely sent me this stripe blanket to Charleston and I feel so much more at home with it (back in BK I have three and am pretty much always under a Chappy at all times!) I love this pines and needles pattern, too. For more on why I love the blanket so much, read this blog post! PS – ending today, you can take 10% off at Chappywrap with code BLACKFRIDAY10
