Friday Favorites #19

Happy November! I can’t believe it’s already NOVEMBER! It was so hot all October and then right on cue it started pouring and raining all day November 1! It hasn’t rained here in FOREVER.  It was so nice! I actually had to turn on the heat in the house last night! Good now I can finally wear some sweaters!

Thanksgiving baking
My husband and I have been busy testing out recipes for Thanksgiving. Below we were playing around with cranberry brie bites.. they were really good! The recipe we used we will make a few minor adjustments, but I think they will work well! *AND* we can make them the day before which is nice!

Time change
I posted this on my Facebook… I have been getting in my Pjs by 7… my body clock is so confused!  I also sleep more since it is darker longer, do you?

Another Puzzle Down
Finished another puzzle recently… ta da!

Pretty Flowers

Husband bought me some pretty flowers as we’ve both been working 6 days a week and haven’t seen each other in like FOREVER… came home late one night and saw these sitting there!  Aren’t they pretty? They are spider mums in a burgundy color… I’ve never seen them in this color! They are also pretty big, like 5-6″ across in diameter!

Origami Owl
Have you ever heard of Origami Owl?? Well I have and I recently purchased this “living locket” as they call them… they are customizable lockets that you put little charms in.  You can change the charms depending on your mood.  The one I bought is a keychain which I think is so much fun!  I have an eiffel tower as I love Paris, medical symbol as I work in medicine, an initial, pink stones because I like pink, and because Christmas season is coming upon us… a Christmas stocking, gingerbread house.  The starting “base” is a little bit pricey but once you have on the charms are pretty inexpensive and would make great stocking stuffers!

I had to include a range of things you can do with origami owl because I think it just so clever!No, I don’t work for them and I don’t get paid anything for writing about this.  

You can make yourself a teacher lanyard… holds your name badge, how cute is that?? A lanyard would be perfect for nurse too!

 Or for the coffee lover….

 Or a Thanksgiving themed one…

 or a Halloween themed one…

A Christmas themed one… you can make a necklace, bracelets, keychains, lanyards, pins… so much variety!

You can find some retired charms on eBay and some non-name brand charms too… look how cute these nursing themed set is that I found on Ebay! You can find cheaper charms on eBay but they may not be made by OO.

You should check out Origami Owl… it would make a great Christmas gift for someone!

    Those flowers are gorgeous! I also love that Origami Owl stuff! I'd never heard of it before. I think a keychain or lanyard would be so cool!
