Snoozer Full Body Pillowcase

This woman seems awfully comfortable... maybe this is why I haven't been sleeping very well. Really going to look into this. What I would give to sleep like I did when I was a kid!

Prince William Spends Night Sleeping on Streets to Raise Awareness for Homeless - International News | News of the World | Middle East News | Europe News -

I have often wondered what it must be like for homeless people, but never ever did anything about it. I feel kind of horrible now. Prince William decided that he wasn't just going to wonder, he was going to experience it and I hope this one night spent in the freezing temps will help people in the future. I'm really impressed. He could have found an excuse not to do it, but spending a night in a cardboard box speaks volumes about Prince William's integrity!

Michael Aram Black Orchid Candle - Must Haves Under $100 -

"Michael Aram Signature Home Scents are weightless, subtle and universal yet exuberant and complex. These fragrances take their inspiration from the same organic motifs that made the artist famous. The Black Orchid Candle was inspired by the rich ambiance of evening and haute couture…gothic and feline…velvety, sensual and intoxicating. The essential elements in the base notes are deep cedar and sandalwood accented with warm musk. The intense middle essence is built on florals and tropical fruits while the top notes are made lithe with sheer citrus"

And they do say that every room should have a touch of black... and this candle has been calling my name. I think that it was the cedar scent. For some reason, that appealed to me! Maybe it is the time of the year.

Dream Necklace Handstamped Jewelry Antiqued by hazelnutcottage

Now we all need to dream... but most of us are too busy and by the end of the day, we collapse for the night. So, I thought that this would be a cute little reminder! It's seventy six dollars, but it looks as if a ton of work has gone into this piece!

Never Quite Thought of It This Way ;)

The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.

Families are the compass that guides us. They are the inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter.

Laura Ingalls Wilder Thinks About Christmas

Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time. ~Laura Ingalls Wilder

If you think that your Christmas is a little too hectic, try viewing the Christmas special from Little House on the Prairie. I don't know if there is more than one, but I saw it years ago and it still is one that I think about every Christmas. Must see if I can locate it!
