Weekend Vintage: Merry Christmas

Santa was feeling awfully old-school this year and I am just loving it! I got so many great, vintage things for my little haus. Merry Christmas, indeed.

Evidence of a successful Christmas comes in the form of a giant mess.

Benoit Pioulard, “Lasted”

The latest vid for “Lasted” from one of my favorites, Benoit Pioulard, is so quiet and brooding. It is a bit sad, but Pioulard’s voice is always so rich and simple that it just ends up being pretty. (via the Fader)

Snowy Saturday

It is the very first snow of the year here! Snowy days always send me into hibernation mode, which generally results in a huge amount of cooking. Today is no exception; I am hanging out with my pup, making vegetable soup and chocolate chip cookies! Here are some photos of our warm & cozy day…
