cookie time!

Tomorrow we're going to Whole Foods to decorate gingerbread cookies.  Technically it's a competition, but since we'll probably have the youngest contestant, we'll have to do our best to restrain our competitive spirits and let the kids have their fun... and then eat all the cookies.

My daughter loves snowmen!  A trip to the Sapporo snow festival in Japan would be quite the Christmas prezzy!

A Picturesque Thanksgiving

Flight delays and a stomach virus made it less than picturesque this year.  But isn't it nice to dream?

Drunk Uncle's Guide to Giving

I've been feeling the Christmas spirit so early this year!  I was tickled to see Time Out New York's holiday gift guide cover.

A large part of my (work) trip to San Fran revolved around eating and friends.  I also snuck in a trip to the Muir Woods.  Travel is good.

what the WHAT?

Even though there are several photos for this chair, I still don't quite understand how it works.  So impractical... so fascinating...

Last week I traveled to Tucson for business and fit in a little pleasure.  The desert does a body good for a few days.

PBR.  A classic.

If I didn't work for a handbag company, I'd be forced to spend actual money on this.

I miss art

I should go see some asap.  I'm thinking of doing my own Sol Lewitt inspired installation at home.  I think the last exhibition I was before the baby arrived might have been Yayoi at the Whitney.  I would love to see this:

Sweet Dreams

I love the graphic print of these sheets.  It's just the thing to spruce up the biggest thing in my bedroom.

You light up my life?

I've been experiencing an unnecessary amount of angst about table lamps.  The ceiling in my living room is too low for overhead lighting, so that leave a lot of pressure on table lamps.  I've been scouting a pair for over a year, and these MCM beauties might just make me bight the bullet.


If I were feeling smart and sensible I'd get these to go with everything from now until forever.  We'll see what mood strikes me.

Graphic Summer

Another sign of summer.  The waves are calling me.

California Dreamin

I'll be doing a little West Coast travel for work in a few weeks.  The dining research has already started. I've got to have a Rebel Within.  Fire up the corporate credit card!  I'll take one of each!

Summer is really here!

It's been a chilly start to the summer, but this weekend we enjoyed beach and pool time.  It's here!

I recently had a party in the backyard and got succulents for the table.  They made the decor!  This cuff is a beautiful alternative to a traditional floral bouquet for a bridal party.

Dover Street Market

I don't think anyone actually buys things here, but it's fun to browse.

Party Pillows

I'm looking to spruce up the outdoor seating area for the big b-day party this weekend!  In a sea of yawn inducing outdoor pillows, I came across these:

Outdoor Accessories

It's finally getting warm out and we're prepping for summer in the backyard.  I came across this cute napkin holder.  Cute for windy days, but seems like it could be an easy DIY too.

I would love a hug from the Hug chair.

Happy Easter Monday!

Carys's first Easter was full of photo ops and delicious food!  We had an egg hunt with simple colorful dyed eggs in the yard.  When these are not a choking hazard we can get more creative.

Arthur, my old friend

When I worked at a+o I became acquainted with Arthur.  This latest print is perfect for transitioning to warmer temps.
