My Grandma's Friend's Cardigan that My Sister Gave to Me

I know this title is the most confusing blog post title of all time, but hear me out!

When I was in Japan over the summer, my grandma's friend gave her a cardigan she didn't want anymore. My grandma then gave it to my sister, who didn't really want it, so my sister gave it to me. HAHA! And I'm so glad she did, because I love it. I have worn it several times! I love the color, the length, and how soft it is :) And I love that it used to be my grandma's, even it she didn't wear it much haha.

These red trees around town get me every time. I love that fall is in full swing right now! It's been raining like crazy, but it just reminds me to cherish any bit of sunshine we get here in Oregon ;)

A New Little Hobby. . .

I'm not exactly sure how many people who read my blog follow me on my Instagram, but hi! For the last eight months I've picked up a new little hobby of watercolor and calligraphy. I feel like I've improved so much since I first started. I felt the growing pains like crazy when trying to learn a new skill set, so I've been working on a two-part blog post of calligraphy and watercolor for beginners (which, by the way, I still consider myself a beginner!!) and what I've learned. If I can help even one person via Google search or a Pin, I will be happy!

I'll be posting about some FAQs I get with my hobby (supplies, where to buy, inspiration, etc.) but if YOU have any questions at all, feel free to ask so I can include that in my upcoming posts! :) 

Also I'm currently taking custom orders. Feel free to reach out to me - - if you'd like me to help you out on a wedding gift, baby shower gift, home decor, etc! I usually charge about $15 shipped for a CUSTOM hand painted print, which I don't think is too bad of a price ;)
