Happy New Year!

The night ends early for me this year, but it still feels as celebratory as ever.

Not sure what this is, but I want one.

ha ha!... no.

I thought I might make a yule log this year for Christmas... until I read this recipe.  You have got to be kidding me.  Yule logs are no joke!

it's a wrap

I am in the full holiday spirit.  The tree is up, most of the presents are bought.  Now I get to revel in the joy of creating pretty packages!


I would love to cuddle up under a chunky beast of this nature.

These nails from a Korean nail artist are pretty friggin unreal.

a real Trooper

Loving the over the knee Trooper boot from Emerson Fry.  My Frye boots are 20 years old this winter.  They're at the shoe repair shop now getting some love.  Possibly... it's time to start winding down to retirement.

Billy Balls

I've really liked these yellow ball flowers for a long time but I never knew what they were called until my coworker brought some in.  Craspedia or Billy Balls!  I'm off to order some dried ones from Etsy now...

Pumpkin Places

I am PSYCHED for the holidays!  Even more than usual.  I know that the post office started selling Christmas stamps on Oct 29th... because I tried to buy them earlier.  Maybe it's all the nesting hormones in overdrive, but I'm going for it.  Even though we're not hosting Thanksgiving this year, these pumpkin place card holders are a visual treat.

Get those baby toes ready for Halloween!

Nails for Fall

As the air gets crisper, my nail color mutes to Autumn colors.  I'm sporting a Mark Jacobs grey courtesy of the Sephora polish tester bar.  Here's a few inspiration images for weeks to come...

These shoes stood out amongst the 1,000 page Fall fashion behemoths.  Why aren't they on the website yet?

Sail Away with me, Honey

These sailboat kites from hapticlab lend themselves to summer day dreams.

City Quilts

Good for studying directions before you've even rolled out of bed.

Atomic North Fork

Two weeks ago we had a getaway to the North Fork of Long Island.  It was blissfully atomic, full of beautiful tastes and sites, and a much needed break from the mundane.

OMG, yes!


The Forest

There's absolutely no reason to own this.  But I kinda need to.

no kill plants

These are just what I need.  No plant is safe around me.  Now there's hope.


Hello, toes!  It's been so many months since you made an appearance!  These or these would support a fabulous debut.

Rain, rain, go away

It's been the traditional grey April these few days.  This print says it well.

losing the dream

I've been hunting for flush mount chandeliers for my height challenged living room.  It's a tough one.  I found perfection... at $32k.  Sigh.  Dreams dashed.  The hunt continues.

snow for Easter

Easter will be here in a few days and we still have a giant mound of snow in the backyard!  Here's a few images of Easter trees from terrain that are warming me up.

So true.  Must get this for the future bar.

Need as prints, need as towels.  This pattern is it!

Nesting the Sequel

I had a major nesting period in my late pregnancy, and it's resurfacing again now.  Probably due to the oppressive weather.  I'm forced to be indoors, so I've become obsessed with indoors!  A rug, art and lamps have all arrived, but I still need more, more, more progress!

The sea took her...

That's one of my favorite lines from one of my favorite films.  This print took me...

Be Mine

I love the aesthetic of Valentine's day.  I'm excited to get Carys a heart shaped balloon.  This image from UO is a delicious inspiration.

On a Winter's day

February kicks off with a snow day!  The flakes are coming down fluffy outside and there's a fire in the fireplace.  Cozy and warm on a winter's day.

I don't even care what this is about.  It's so visually delectable.  It speaks for itself.

restful floral

Sleeping must be more peaceful behind this eye mask.

So Close...

Why is this rug not in multiple color options for each pattern?  Now I'll have to mourn what could have been.  (Or come up with a creative alternate layout)

The answer is yes

Just to settle something:
