S is for School Totes

School Totes.
These school totes from Bobo Choses are super cute!  I think I would add a big hand-embroidered monogram and carry one myself!
They also make an over the shoulder tote if you prefer!

The Scout Guide.
I'm loving the design of The Scout Guide - each individual book is devoted to one city and highlights the best places to visit while in that city.  Each book/city is a different color - they are gorgeous - I've got to get some of these!  Created by Susie Matheson and Christy Ford.  Shopping, local artisans, dining, hidden gems - what a great idea!  The books themselves are so beautiful.  I'd like the whole stack - they make a great visual collection!
While I was admiring their website I also discovered a gorgeous handbag- the leather chestnut tote -seen in Christy Ford's picture.
They sell it at her shop - And George - love it!

H is for Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!
In preparation for Halloween I made some Candy Corn Cookies inspired by Camille Styles blog here.  They turned out pretty good and plentiful - just like piles of candy corn!
I've also been doing some other projects in my kitchen!  Recently I covered this odd corner countertop in my kitchen with Snow & Graham's Hydrangea wrap and I love it!  I just used some PVA glue to put the paper down and then put another coat over the top so I could wipe the counter down easily.  Then I used an exacto knife to cut around the edges.  A perfect solution when you are living in an apartment and can't have your dream kitchen just yet!
What do you think?
Have a happy Halloween!

I've always loved Scalamandre's flying zebra wallpaper - featured in The Royal Tenenbaums among other places.  I love a happy zebra popping up now and then!
Zebra scarves in bright colors!
Super cute red zebra tray from Furbish.
Some great pillows from Dwell - I think a duvet cover would be awesome!
Rifle Paper Co. makes an adorable zebra notepad - of course!

Fall has arrived and the crisp air is feeling good around here.  Time for back to school and new romances.
Or a fall camping trip!
Time for a new pair of boots!
Break out the tweed!
Mussels, beer, and pommes frites - by a fire preferably - make a perfect fall dinner!
