From my view on the couch

Hello lovlies!

Silence for a week isn't fun, but home was perfection (other than my computer breaking) so I am currently sitting in one of my favorite libraries in Springfield.

Wonderment in Neverland may be slightly silent this week. 

But I wanted to share my trip home for Christmas. The five things I heart this week, however, shall have to wait.

Music box my mommy always decorates with
 Mom always decorates the house beautifully for Christmas. Part of why I love going home so much. 

Yum. Coffee and hot chocolate just tastes better when you drink them out of these mugs

 Every year mom buys the kids new ornaments. This was one from a few years ago.

Day 06 - A song that reminds you of somewhere

Hopefully this warms you up some. This song always (without fail) reminds me of lazy summers at the lake with my family. 


Margaritaville - Jimmy Buffet

The Fremont House

I spent my first time alone at the Fremont House tonight. 

I kinda feel like this house needs a facebook fan page. It holds a lot of pieces of my heart. Like this piece and this piece.

I know I've been semi-terrible at blogging lately. I put it off on lack of sleep and overload of stress. But finals went amazingly well, so after I sleep for about 15 hours I'll be back to the blogging world. I promise. Cause I pretty much miss you all with every fiber in my being. 

Also, I'm trying to think of a fun give away for after Christmas. I'll keep you updated, but it'll probably be a new craft inspired by my new roommates and house. 

Also, I need help. I'm trying to revamp my "This girl thinks that..." series. I want a different name. I want to do five things I love every Monday, but I want a more creative name than that. I've been using my thesaurus and Oxford English Dictionary (let's play how can you tell Hannah's an English major!) and I still can't think of a good name.


30 Day Music Challenge continues:

Day 04 - a song that makes you sad

Jar of Hearts - Christina Perri

Silent Night

Let me be serious for a second. 

For some reason I haven't been enjoying the holiday season as much as I usually do.

I was leaving Potter's House last night rather disgruntled, trying to remember all I have to do this week.

As I was leaving, Brett and Sampson began singing in harmony. Silent Night. More joined in. The whole kitchen was singing as I walked out. And I think I realized why I've been kinda sad the past few weeks. 

Cause I forgot that what we're celebrating at Christmas, has nothing to do with Santa or presents or giving your heart to someone else this Christmas (I hate that song). 

It's about a birth that happened in a barn in the dead of night with nobody else around to help but a very scared husband who wasn't even the father of the baby. About a very young mother, probably scared to the bone, but choosing life. And about a baby. A really important baby.

Happy Christmas blog lovelies. 

I'm missing this post for my 30 day music challenge. Just enjoy this loveliness.

This girl thinks that...

...this necklace makes all of her dreams of a necklace collection come true.

...this vase was so easy to make, and so fun too!

...she laughed out loud when she saw this.

...this poster is so amazing, that she just had to share it. Yes, that is my name on Friday the 10th. I didn't plan to tell anyone about this show, but this poster is so cute I couldn't resist!

photo props Dan Turk

 ...this picture of one of her art suitcases completely embodies her life right now, messy and disorganized, but beautiful in it's disorganization.

...despite the fact that her life is a hot mess right now she is still going to...

...she forgot how much musicals make her nostalgic.

photo props here honer of nostalgic musicals, she will allow her 30 day music choice of the day to reflect her love of them. So...for your enjoyment (and please do enjoy it). 

Day 03 - A Song that Makes You Happy

The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing - From A White Christmas

I refuse to use lyrics from my song choice...

I'm making Christmas presents this year. I went thrifting last night to start getting some stuff and gather inspiration. I sure as heck found some. 

What is the Purpose of a Banana? 

I have no idea, but soon-to-be roommate Malory taught me how to bind my own book, so I'll never know!

I also found a new little critter to join the wander and the runaway team. Want a clue?

You have to help me convince Koni he's not creepy and actually quite lovable. Just look at those eyes! It was nothing but love at first sight.

 I also started work on my "Discover Beauty" shirts for Africa. More to come, but here's a sneak peak. Who wants one?

And finally, my 30 day music choice of the day.

Day 02 – Your least favorite song

I'm sorry your ex-girlfriend was a pain Steve Holy, but we don't want to hear about your new one.
