tinsel and eskimo pies

In an eating cookies, drinking mulled wine, and watching stop motion Christmas movies-kind of mood...indefinitely...

tinsel and eskimo pies

How do you like our Christmas tree? I was surprised we actually had enough ornaments to cover a whole tree, but apparently we got quite a haul for Christmas last year. Nothing beats a real tree, but one of my friends, who came to visit recently, brought us this incredible fir-scented candle that I can't get enough of. Highly recommend it for insta-holiday cheer.

  7. When you wear fur, do you find that perfect strangers want to touch the coat?

    I encountered a student recently who was wearing a fur collar. I reached out and touched it impulsively, even though I didn't know her. I was mortified by my impulsive action and could only then tell her how much I admired the collar.

  13. how cute! I've got a fake tree, convenient for apartment living sadly cause there is nothing like that real tree. But I got a little white tree up!

  14. Aww, what a cute tree! I can't wait to get mine this weekend.

    Your mulled wine sounds quite tasty, it seems you are having the idea evening, spent in the most beautiful fur and sandals.

  15. So adorable!! I love the tree and the heels. I've never had a REAL christmas tree (I'm jewish), but recently resolved to have a pinkish-purplish glittery tinsel secular-holiday-tree. it's a nice compromise :)

  21. Hugging you would be like hugging a teddy bear, I highly approve.

    I can't wait to get out of student housing so I can have a tree bigger than 12" tall, it's so puny and pathetic looking *sigh*.

    I love mulled wine, adore it with a fiery passion, which is odd because I generally dislike wine apart from a red wine I tried last year which didn't make my face curl in on itself and I have no idea what wine it was.
