Nervous System

There's something so intriguing about the jewelry at Nervous System's Etsy Shop. The combination of geometric and organic designs lures me in.

St. Augustine

{St. Augustine}

This past weekend we ran off to St. Augustine for Sunday and Monday. We strolled, shopped and tourist-ed; we slept, ate and drank; we sprawled on the beach and celebrated Memorial Day, as well as 3 years together.

Jennifer Behr

How fantastic are these Jennifer Behr headwraps?!?!?!

I'll take one of each, please.

Keepin' Calm At Last

I fiiiiinally ordered mine just now from sfgirlbybay's etsy shop. I have been meaning to forever and ever. Such valuable words and a charming design, all in one.

Raise the Roof

We attended this last Thursday after work and are planning to make it again tomorrow, too. My only hope is that there is more of a food selection this time. Other than that, I'm down for happy hour on top of a parking garage just about any day.

Peter Callesen

I've been a fan of Peter Callesen's Papercut Art for awhile now.

I like the way he incorporates the bottom ledge of the frame into many of the pieces in his collection.

I'd especially love this yellow tree piece, titled 'Fall', for my own home.

Amazing Wedding Dress

I am in utter awe of this wedding dress. I think I'm in love with it.

The punky take on a traditional design tickles me so much!

Let's Compare

On the left we have Crate & Barrel's Cold Beverage Jar for $39.95 -OR- on the right, Target's Whim by Cynthia Rowley Glass Sun Tea Jar for only $14.99. Identical much? Just another reason why I love Target. I'd get one for that outdoor party I was talking about throwing.

I am fancying the jewelry at RedaretheRoses' Etsy Shop. Everything is so happy & nostalgic of a different era.

This pretty little girl became the newest member of our family this past Friday. She's sooooo funny & adorable! Even Luca, our almost-2-year-old cat, is taking to her pretty well. I'm really proud of him. There's nothing like having a kitten around!


Library Staircase

This was posted on Apartment Therapy a couple months ago, but I think about it all the time. It is, hands down, one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. I'd feel so special if I had this in my home.

Paper Flower Garlands

I want to throw an outdoor party soon just so I can decorate with these garlands made from colored paper bags, as seen on Martha.

Spring Table

My current spring table: wire basket, new guinea impatiens and place mats all from Target; Kitty Soy Sauce Pitcher bought in Amsterdam.

Treasures from Tampa

This past weekend in Tampa, all of us girls made some killer shopping finds. A few of my own favorites include {clockwise from top left}: Vintage Bird Cage Art found at secondhand store, Teal Vintage-Inspired Pumps from BITTEN by Sarah Jessica Parker {only $8.98!}, Summery Woven Purse from Bali Bay Trading Company, and Spoon Rest made in Spain also found at secondhand store.


Ha ha, I came across these dangly innuendos on idridden's etsy shop and oh, they amuse me so! Too bad it wouldn't be very humble to give them to someone would it?

One Year Ago Today...


... Rachel and I were returning to Barcelona after spending a few days in wild, exotic Marrakesh, Morocco.

01 May 2008


Am off to Tampa this weekend with Rachel and Hilary to visit our friend Sarah, and meet up with our friend Ali, too! Happy weekend!

Vintage Paper Mache Bowls

They have been finding me lately. The first two I scored for a steal about a month ago at an Estate Sale and were made in England. The third one I found this past weekend at The Other Side in Tallahassee, for a comparable steal, and is from Japan. The debut set is living on my living room bookshelf, amongst pretty hardback books. The newest one will hold my chunky beaded necklaces. I am in love with them.
