nataliejost Uh, hello paper mâché Eddie Bauer bust for $40. I can't tell if it's actually vintage or made to look vintage. Sticker inside reads Silvestri California, Los Angeles. Still very cool. 1d

nataliejost Ok this is cool. Last fall after Halloween the girls put their washi tape covered little pumpkins in the dying flower bed on the front porch. There they sat all winter as I was honestly too lazy to throw them out. I stopped looking at them somewhere around February. Just couldn't face my lazy. The other day we were leaving to go somewhere and the girls squealed. I turned around to see, and holy cow! The pumpkins, sort of rotted into the soil and sprouted something new. You can almost see the washi tape still there underneath the foliage. I'm amazed. And feeling pretty not lazy anymore. 4d

nataliejost Natural diffuser, using a @sunshinejuiceco bottle and some twigs from the backyard. Drop in your favorite essential oil, then add barely boiling water. Let them soak for a few minutes, then turn the sticks over for more scent. 4d

nataliejost Someone said to me recently, "must be nice to just do your hobby all day." I didn't take offense as I used to. It is a hobby. It is work too. I'm lucky to get paid to do what I love and I know her bitterness came from the part of her that wishes she could do what she loves. I wish that for her too. And for you. If you're not doing what you love, consider what it would take to go for it. It's hard work, possibly harder than working for someone else. But I bet you won't notice. Because you'll love it. 2w

  •   christinamenefee I recently had someone say that to me. Thank you for words on this. It really changes how I think about it. 2w
  •   salzanos Absolutely!! I love what I do and I work hard at my passion! Working at home is not for all but it works for me. 2w

nataliejost I don't much care that it's going to be 70 degrees out today. My owl hat and pink sparkly winter boots are not negotiable. 3w

nataliejost So I went to the store for more yarn last night and they were completely out of the color I needed. I turned around, totally disappointed, because I had been on a particular roll, when lo, there was a certain icy mint + butter cream combo on the shelf behind me. So I started another. 3w

nataliejost When one kiddo wakes up on the wrong side of the bed it's rough. When her twin sister is chipper and obedient, it's sooo much worse. Praying we all find his mercy this morning. 3w

nataliejost 14 squares done, and really enjoying this one. I was inspired by a similar afghan found draped over Lorelai's couch in most of season 5 of Gilmore Girls. Hoping to finish in time for the summer bazaar in June. #crochet #grannysquares 3w
