This weekend


Why not...

Bake a loaf of spiced pumpkin bread; visit a thrift store and find something fun for under $10; get your favorite sweaters out of storage and put away your summer clothes; write a handwritten letter to someone you've been meaning to catch up with; get a rosemary plant and make toasted rosemary pecans; make a fun playlist; ignore the dishes in the sink; volunteer at an animal shelter; delete old and unused files from your computer's hard drive; tell someone you love how much they mean to you; donate something to charity; try a calming yoga post (this is a good place to start if you're new to yoga); try dark nail polish for a touch of glamour; download an educational podcast from iTunesU; design a new header for your blog; write down five things you're thankful for; have an Audrey Hepburn movie marathon (here's a list); sip white wine in your pajamas; light a cinnamon soy candle; brew some hazelnut coffee; make a pot of chicken noodle soup; don a colorful scarf and some fabulously dangly earrings; re-purpose old tea tins as flower vases...

(You can find more fun weekend suggestions here.)

What kind of magic are you making this weekend? I want to hear about it!

Oooh.. a tea tin as a flower vase! I've decorated shelves and table tops with a pink Harney and Son's tea tin (www.harney.com/HT-Teas/departments/1/) for years because I thought it was pretty, but I never thought of putting flowers in it. Thanks for the idea! And thanks for commenting on my smoked salmon and goat cheese post! I look forward to reading more of your posts too :)

What a lovely list! I visited Anthropologie (finally a store in London! yay!), did a dress rehearsal for Christmas dinner, had a long bath, did my garden, went to the Borough market with a friend, got my house clean and spoke to my parents and sister in Australia....a very lovely weekend indeed! And I also sipped white wine in my pyjamas. :) xx

Green Ink, sounds like a lovely weekend! I remember being SO excited when Anthropologie came to DC. There's really just nothing like it, is there?

Thank you so much for this list. I was feeling anxious and stressed out and not ready to deal with anything else at the moment when i read this post. You listed such wonderful things, that it helped, especially the yoga poses you linked to.
