Belhurst Castle

We had Sunday Brunch here this afternoon and Em wanted to hold the castle up.

We added a new pantry last weekend to stock up for the winter months ahead. On our thrifting adventures we found this great original Cathrineholm casserole pot for a whole $1.99 and the orange bowl for a couple of bucks.

These are pretty collectible now so I was happy to find them so cheap. If anyone out there ever runs into some for cheap I would be happy to cover cost and shipping to add to our collection.

Here's a great history of the Cathrineholm line.

A Hunting We Will Go!

Our search for a Christmas tree was successful and we found this 7.5 foot Canaan Fir. Emily spotted it as we scoured the unending fields of evergreens at our local Christmas tree farm.

Trophy Shot

After mom and dad did the hard part, Emily grabs the glory.


The mighty hunters felled the tree amid a cloud of piney freshness!
