Oh man, this week kicked my butt! I’m kind of dragging into today… but still have a few more work things to finish up and then I am grossly behind on getting things ready for Christmas. I have wrapped exactly zero gifts. I’m usually so on top of it! I definitely see a couple of last minute errands to finish up shopping too… (Note to my future self, don’t procrastinate.)
Here’s what has been on my radar this week:
ONE // Photo Printing Service
Ever since I shared that I got some prints made, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about it. I have tried so many different photo printing services and Printique is, by far, the best quality. They nail the quality in every way imaginable. From the way the colors look to how the prints feel. I found that so many other services look like “digital” prints. Even if I had a super high quality photo, they looked pixelated and the colors were never spot on. Printique’s are perfect. Highly, HIGHLY recommend. (Printing photos could be a great “end of year project” if you have some time off of work.)
TWO // Bow Curtain Tieback
I have zero places for these curtain tie backs (our upstairs windows all have shades, not curtains, because of our radiators), but I absolutely love it. Bows are everywhere now, but I’m finding a lot of the home items to be a little too juvenile. These would be darling in a little girls room, but they’re also sophisticated enough for an adult.
My sister in law sent this article to me first– and then I received approximately 400 DMs with it. I’d love to visit Aurora. I’ve seen some of her properties on Instagram before– I just didn’t know that the founder of American Girl was behind it all.
FOUR // Caraway Cookware
I’m having like a postnatal nesting stage. Unfortunately, I don’t have much time to act on it, but during one of Jack’s naps this week, I switched over our pots and pans. We have a nice set of all-clad, but I really like cooking certain things with non-stick, which we had a hodgepodge collection of. I did a deep clean and organization of our cabinets and made the switch to Caraway. (The big box had been sitting unceremoniously in our living room for weeks…) I bought them back during Cyber Week and I’m so excited to cook with them! I will keep you posted. Right off the bat I will say, they are beautiful and nice and sturdy!
Ending on a very lovely, heartwarming note. This woman’s father is battling cancer and decided to learn how to ice skate. He and his teacher put on a performance and, wow, I just love this!
