a good excuse.

No kitchen? I know just the place! Num!! After daring to cancel on a meeting and being brave enough to ask for what I need, I get the reward of sitting in beaming sunlight and listening to the quiet of no banging and heav-hoeing. Ahhh. Fresh white subway tile walls surround me and all I [...]

very charming.

Upon checking out at the register at my local Anthropologie, the cutest-of-cuties worker is setting up a display with a great big brown box of fresh shiny merchandise: lovely chains and shiny charms. I said something like “Oh! Oh!” and “Oh!!!!” Thankfully, she speaks my language and understood me as saying, “I wanna see! I [...]

So this week we feature a wrapped gift. Is that what people are doing? Wrapping gifts? (Already???) I see you did it—and in style I might add Ms. Julie. Tonight I go to a Christmas Party and I am thrilled from head to toe. Would love to bring a little something to this lovely lady [...]

 Whirly and swirly, she feels fully alive and warm by the presence of snow. She takes it in. -or- Eyes squinting in the harsh wind she roams around the parking lot freaking out as there is no sight of her car. Or any car for that matter. Her words are carried by the whisper [...]

week two: homemade

What gift to give this group of women…??? It needs to be special. Very. These women hold so much on other’s behalf. A symbol of some kind…? What could that be…? The string of ideas from one to another lead Jen and I to getting out a pile of extra upholstery fabric. We get a [...]

breaking it down.

Likely you’ve caught on by now that keeping up is an issue for me. (And I am in no way referring to the Jones’ family.)
