The Blush List - Stop and Smell the Roses

Knit // Is it weird that I would want to display beautiful, hand knit socks like these on a clothes line as a decoration in my apartment? Nah. These beauties are too stunning to keep in a drawer! 
Crochet // This crochet mask looks like the perfect way to top off a superhero costume! Are you dressing up for halloween? What are you going to wear? 
Craft // The ability to craft for fun again is right around the corner...I know it! Once I finish up everything book related I can't wait to start some just-for-fun projects. I would love to paint some pretty fall leaves and string them on my walls! 
Style // A pear sweater! I knew something was missing from my sweater collection. 
Art // I can't stop looking at the Rifle Paper Co. lookbook. This image is particularly stunning. It is also a good reminder about the importance of stopping, taking breaks, and enjoying life. 

Food // Forget halloween candy...I want a treat bag full of pumpkin scones! Ok, and maybe a little candy too. Bring on the candy corn.

Happy Sunday everyone! I can't believe this crazy month is almost over. I am operating on very little sleep but I couldn't feel more grateful. It is a pretty amazing thing to experience the help of friends, family, and strangers when you need it most. The fact is I couldn't have survived this month without help. Sometimes it is difficult for me to admit that I can't do things on my own. This month taught me that it is impossible to go through life without the support of others.

This month has also reminded me that I need to "stop and smell the roses" as much as possible. I get so caught up in working and going and feeling the need to stay busy that I miss out on the beauty of life. So, November is definitely going to be a month all about enjoying life again!

I hope you had a great October. What are your plans for Halloween? Did you get crafty with your costume this year? I would love to see photos!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a great start to the week!
