November Favourites

The last few leaves have brought down by the rain and now litter the lawn. It’s time to get the snow shovels out and put up the Christmas lights. It’s the end of November and here are my favourite things from the past month:

November Obsessions

The fall has been quite mild this year. The trees are almost bare and yet we haven’t had our first snowfall yet, not even the little overnight kind. And we’ve only had a few frosts, so the flowers in the garden continue to bloom despite being buried in leaves. I’m trying to enjoy the late fall and not get too excited for Christmas. Here are my current obsessions:

1. Burning candles on dark and stormy days.

P. F. Candle Co.’s Campfire Scented Soy Candle

2. Cozy Winter Pajamas

I ordered these the other day, specifically for wearing when I’m tired and cranky.

3. Details on Collars

These tiny patches, a thistle and a trillium (the flower of Ontario), have an iron-on backing and are perfect for sprucing up the collar of a plain white top or dress.
