More Occytober, Boots + Food Pron


Hello! It's me, Rachel-Marie, owner of http://knittydirtygirl.com

I make my fiber art items with love and an inspired, hipster heart! My hubby and I have grown a little family in the sweet small city of Lancaster, PA.

I love container gardening, vampires, knitting (of course), vintage shopping, shabby chic decorating, and audible.com. I enjoy my girl time, pampering myself or going out for a drink. Hey you only live once!

So, I’m only a click away! Msg. me, and you’re likely to get a response right away. Go ahead, I’d love to hear from you!

More Occytober, Boots + Food Pron

Previous Entry Share

About time for a blog update! Sorry my entries are so long, but I can't blog too often. I make sure to update my facebook photo albums regularly and then compile my favorite things here on the blog when I get a moment.

In chronological order I will start here 10-8-2010, Octavian's little friend from the neighborhood, Maddy came over to play. I have a few really cute pictures of them both playing together, but this one of Maddy is just completely adorable.

 This is one of my favorite pictures of Octavian, showing off his Occytober spirit! Again, completely adorable. Taken 10-14-10. You can view Octavian's second round of 365 days here on Facebook.

 Now don't be jealous, but I got treated to 3 pair of new boots @ Bass + a totally cute pair of Jordans. Thanks Gregpa! Below are my favorite boots. Cowgirl boots inspired by my obsession with True Blood. Thanks Gregpa!!!!

The kids aren't the only ones playing in our front yard. We've got critters too!

Now it's time for the usual Food Pron! These cream cheese bars are delicious, but very very rich and sweet. Just one is more than enough.

I made mashed potatoes from scratch for the first time. TOTALLY worth the effort.

Sugar cookies, absolutely PERFECT! Just make sure to bake them for only 5 minutes, and don't make them too thin.

 Breakfast is a sacred meal at our house. The best yummiest foods ever!

(Pictured Above: Pumpkin Waffles)

We tried something a little different to use up extra bananas.

As far as my knitting + crafts, I've packaged some orders + knit a few rounds on Jerome's socks. I haven't had much time for it all, but I ordered a new spinning wheel motor + plan to fit more of it into my new lifestyle. I'm definitely inspired again to create arty things.
Keep it Knitty!

    I don't know what's cooler, the pumpkin glasses or the name Octavian! Having mastered mashed potatoes you should try smashed potatoes. Wash the taters but don't peel them. You get the goodness of the skin and it saves oodles of time. Well, back to Ravelry.
