five favorites

Sharing some of my favorite things at the moment before I call it a day and go raid my craft stash to figure some type of DIY project I can “relax” with Saturday while my pup is getting his ear procedure done. As much as I try to love tea…I’m totally a coffee person. But…

spectacles

I feel like I visited the eye doctor more than any other doctor when I was young. Like, in grade school young. It was decided that I was just a very squinty child and I did not ask my Mom to get me glasses until my sophomore year of high school. I was struggling in…

clementine daily

Read about Erin (Design for Mankind) Loechner’s new venture over at her blog and definitely check out Clementine Daily. I usually do not re-post things that everybody else is blogging about. The first reason is, that it feels lame but another reason is that not very many people read this blog. Like, tens of people…

tangerine trees and marmalade skies

…where rocking horse people eat (gluten free) marshmallow pies… Today was Beatles day… for me, anyway. I’ve got a lot going on that requires complete concentration so I have to have ear buds fully engaged. For a few days I listened to Nine Inch Nails (matched my mood) but once I got all that out…

living small

I’ve been busy. Maybe even a bit loony (who needs to shower, anyway?). Quite often, I joke about not having my shit together; life is hard, I’m all alone, blah blah blah. I don’t want the WORLD… I just want a space that is mine. A home, a sanctuary. So, I put together a workbook…

Not that I don’t LOVE Anthropologie… I’m just perpetually broke. Wouldn’t it be nice if the electric company gave us a…

to see, or not to see…

1  |  2  |  3  |  4   |  5   While looking at frames for myself I got sidetracked by all the cute little bespectacled animal illustrations out there. Is there anything more adorable than glasses on a tiny owl? I think not.  After a TON of searching (and a small amount of goofing-off) I decided…

the palest pink

1  |  2  |  3  |  4   |  5  |  6  |  7 This color is everywhere, and I like it. I like it a lot. Truth is, I got ripped off in the wedding department some odd 14 years ago. If I ever did it again I would wear a non-conventional color/style dress, marry…

i miss you, sticker book.

I’ve never been much of a collector. I just don’t like a lot of things cluttering my spaces. Life, itself, is already a bit cluttery – don’t you think? Imagine if I was responsible for an entire army of little ceramic cows or something? I’m not wired for that kind of commitment. The dusting alone…
