After weeks (it kinda feels like months) of preparations the big move finally begins. We're moving all the small stuff today and a movers come next week to move all the big stuff. It's getting a bit tiresome living in two places at once so we'll be so happy when it's all over and done with! While I'm all for getting this done, I can't help but wish I was living in that photo instead. :) A fall picnic complete with freshly picked apples and my very own Hudson Bay blanket? Yes, please.

After reading this, I was forced to google Hudson's Bay blankets beacause I live in Canada, where they are rather ubiquitous (at least in Bay stores), and I never knew they were in demand (or so expensive!).

It's funny how these things can be sort of lost in translation across the border, given how it often feels like we have one monolithic culture.

I also think the Hudson Bay blanket thing is kind of funny, even though I think they are great- I never thought they'd become such a sought-after object. Yay Canada! Maybe I'll find one if I go there for Thanksgiving in a couple weeks. That photo is great! I'm so happy that it's fall. Good luck with your move, lady!

Hi! We are so happy that you are checking out the sunroom! Its been a fun little project. Absolutely love your blog & your etsy.

Good to know its a Hudson Bay blanket...here in Portland we are all about the Pendleton, so it seems I unknowingly rifled up a little competition. I think the Canadians got it right!

Aw. I'm so glad the settling in is about to begin. And I'm jealous of that picnic.

Yours is the second blog that I have seen recently mentioning Hudson Bay blankets!

a fall picnic sounds lovely.

my husband and i are actually moving from LA to brooklyn next week. i am overwhelmed with emotions and anxiety! but, i absolutely can not wait to get back east for autumn- leaves changing, apples!, sweaters and boots...all of the things I missed the most!

good luck with your move!
