What says late autumn more than a freezer full of homemade soup and knee high socks? A tea strainer and Thinsulated duffel coat, that's what! We're stocking up for winter here, and preparing to be the 'TA in black' (like The Man in Black, only, a Teaching Assistant).
I've acquired rose salve for a dry winter (multipurpose! for the office!), Pyrex storage bowls to safely hold all my homemade soup (and there is a lot of homemade soup), mini measure shot glass (for making said soups - these things really are awesome), fabric drawers for storing summer clothes, a perfectly balanced tea strainer for my finicky sencha with matcha, round tea tins with chalkboard sticker labels, a lambswool duffel from LL Bean, fancy and toasty knee highs from Sock Dreams in black like my Crown Vintage Samantha Booties, a cable knit sweater dress, a warm [real] silk slip to go under that nonsense, and polka dot tights to top it all off (bottom it off?).
Oh, and a boatload of sweaters, because that's pretty much what it's all about.
