hello my darlings & dears….

whoaaa! what a crazy weekend/week! here are a few photos from Cider Days. We had a great time hanging out at the Red Velvet Art booth. it was wonderful to meet some new people, share art & stitch together….
12i was super suppper bummed because i accidently deleted all my photos from the first day of cider days. 🙁 but it's ok… at least we took some more…
3i love rach's bow soooo much!
4halfway through the second day of Cider Days i had to leave early to show my new home in the Commercial Street loft walk. It was so fun and scary to show my loft to a couple hundred people just a week & a half after i moved in!! certainly a good challenge to get things looking cute as soon as possible, though….. here are a few photos….567more to come soon!

brittany and I will choose a winner ASAP. i want to let her help me choose! the recipes look aweeeesome. i am excited. larson and i have had quite a few pumpkin spice & gingerbread lattes and we are wearing our matching american apparel cardigans (yes, matching!). i love.

here is a cute photo of the lovely brittany denbow…8

oh, and my friend, Christie, tagged me…. so before i forget:
7 very random facts about myself

  • Elsie, I lurveeeeee your new loft. The stuff from cider days looks absolutely adorable and Im wondering some things…

    1. that darling bag? are you selling it?

    2. your whole fall playlist? you MUST share!!

    aaand since Im working in charlotte russe before I leave for college…and I just read youre into red plaid…thought I’d tell you about this dress we got in that I bought for myself(im putting it with a black glittery scarf and a black crocheted beret/beanie). It’s sadly not online anymore so ill have to tell you about it…

    Its red lumberjack plaid and babydoll. Short puffy sleeves. And has a little belt. You would so love it. I thought of you when I was buying it. well, happy fall;good times with your assistant;and merry cooking as you pick a winner and begin autumn culinary adventures. :]

    peAce. xoxo.
