{pretty, happy, funny, real} December 5

~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~
Brought to you by Like Mother, Like Daughter 

It's been awhile! I have a lot of lovely fall photos, but I think I'll just jump in where we are right now in this first week of Advent. It's all a bit random over here. . .


Here is our Advent wreath! This year I finally purchased the brass candle holder and some "real" Advent candles. Arden and I went for a walk on Tuesday and cut spruce branches and ferns from our little woods and picked up pinecones from the spruce hedge for the greenery.

There are also a few little red berries and bits of birch bark hidden in the green. Arden helped me to "arrange" it all, and the results are quite pretty, I think!


Our dear black and white kitten, Pickwick, met with an unfortunate end this fall. We decided we liked being a home with two cats, so we brought home this little barn kitten when farmer friends of ours had an excess! Meet Cinders.

Arden is smitten. (And the kitten is tolerant!) Cinders is so named because she has not a speck of white on her, and spent the first few days hiding out (from our other cat Milly) behind our fireplace!

And here is Jack, growing by the day. He is a happy little thing.

It's hard to get him to sit still for a picture!


Creating our own indoor fun!

These days there is almost always some sort of "tent" or "house" made in the living room.
