Cabin on a Hill

It's always fun to peek around someone else's home, right? 
After Joey and Em moved out a couple weeks ago, I knew for sure that they (Em) would immediately set up their new house to be all cozy and inviting. But going inside was even better than I could have imagined.  They live only a mile or so away so we walked over.
They painted the living room walls this pretty soft mauve and every little detail is just perfect. It is part desert sunrise, part Stevie Nicks, part forest hideaway.

Lucy hadn't seen Em in almost two days, gasp! They were overjoyed to be reunited and started dancing immediately.

She tested out their new thrifted chair: yep, pretty comfy!
And admired the peep-through shelving leading into the bedroom (before the cats knocked the books down for the thousandth time.)
the house is a little old cabin for the lumber mill workers up in camino from years and years ago. It matches several others in the neighborhood; they were all carefully transported downtown in…

Gnome Sweet Gnome

ready to smack me for that title? sorry! i couldn't resist.
i have been meaning to post photos of our adorable forestlass gnome hats since we got them last month from the inspiring and talented sara. she calls them her woodland hoods and there are many delicious colors available in her etsy shop, along with other beautiful handmade creations and vintage clothes. go check out her offerings, you will like them.
i knew mine was on its way but lucy's was a tiny hand crafted baby surprise! have you ever seen anything so adorable? here we are the very first time we wore them, on a walk at addie's.

it was baby Vyv Ute's first ride in the pram.

he liked it. look at this sweet little guy! i supposed lucy will let him borrow her cap from time to time, because that lad is just going to rock it!

she was fast asleep as we neared home. have you noticed how many pictures i have like this? i must think we are really really cute, walking and sleeping.

another day we both wore our hood…

a snow day

we had a swirly little snowstorm start up in the middle of the day tuesday, the first snow of the winter here! we get really really excited when it snows since it's a pretty rare occurrence around these parts. it was so beautiful and peaceful watching the cold rain turn silently to snow. lucy was so excited when she noticed the snowflakes fluttering down outside the window by her changing table. 
we quickly got her bundled up and jammed out to let her experience SNOW!
(a little vintage snowsuit borrowed from jorden and becky)
she was so excited! the snowflakes would land in her eyelashes and on her cheeks and she would giggle with this shy little nervous grin. she never fussed or cried, just smiled and smiled and gazed around with wonder.

darin had to leave for work at 2:30, and by the time he left the whole yard and street were covered in snow. lucy and i took a little walk.
our house:
looking down the hill:
and up our hill:
it seemed like we were the only people home in the nei…
