I'm back from a week spent on the Pacific coast of Mexico.  It was lovely and hot. Huatulco, being fifteen degrees north of the equator, is really, really hot!  We swam, read a lot, played ping pong, painted, ate guacamole every day (sometimes twice a day!) and just enjoyed a week of summer in November.

Cross-stitch Christmas stamps

Okay.  I'm in love with this year's cross-stitch inspired Christmas stamps.  They come in mini booklets - perfect for tucking into my moleskine notebook and bringing along to cafes this fall for card writing/hot chocolate dates!

One Plus One

Earlier this month I met One Plus One designer Jessie for tea and sweets.  Jessie was in town visiting from her hometown of Winnipeg.  We've been blog friends for a few years now so it was really nice to meet up!  

I have now happily started writing Christmas cards - with these adorable One Plus One cards.  

P.S. And how beautiful are these floral cards?  Perfect for everyday note writing!
