Meet Babar!

A couple weeks ago I spotted this adorable brass elephant at my local antique store and it was love at first sight! I haven't found a permanent spot for him yet, but I love the idea of him sitting on top of a stack of books or tucked neatly on a bookshelf.

 I thought I may be the only person who could feel such excitement for a old brass animal, UNTIL later that week I read this post over at Design Darling and then this one at EverythingLEB. Great minds think alike. And the best part, he was a meager $8!

In other news, I'm working at getting my Christmas decorating finished. My tree is up but it was missing something so I planned on making some bunting. This week the plan changed from bunting to garland - dried fruit garland to be exact! I saw a cute photo of dried lemon garland and thought how fun it would be to make some dried orange garland seeing as my family is actually going to be spending the holidays in California this year (instead of cold, icy Canada), where we happen to live in the orange capital of the state. Or so they say. 

Here's what I've got so far...

{oranges & a few persimmons}

I bought a box of clementines mostly to eat, but they are the perfectly sized for drying and hanging on the tree. I'm planning to finish this project on Friday and will share the results when I do. 

Tomorrow I am meeting the lovely, and 39-week pregnant, Emily for the installation of the Westwind project which we blogged about a few months ago here. Here's hoping that her baby doesn't decide to make her appearance in the next 24 hours! We'll keep you posted :)
