the weekend is upon us...

and I am ready for it. I hope you all have some fabulous plans, even if they just involve delicious snacks and a good book in bed. Enjoy yourself!

Lyrics from my favorite Best Coast song ("When I'm With You") as drawn by the great Chris Piascik.


floral beauties...

from one of my lovely sponsors, Ruche: floral field of ruffles dress ($46.99) and marlee tea party jazz sneakers ($54.99).

interior inspiration : black and white.

Easily one of the best color combinations in fashion, design, and interior decorating. It rarely fails to look stylish and just plain cool. I am too much of a color lover to go fully black & white in my home, but it is by far one of my favorite looks.

bunny love.

How great is this bunny rocker by Playsam? I love traditional rocking horses, but I think I might love this even more. Those Swedes sure know how to create a good design. ($220)

thought of the day : we humans.

"Pieces," another lettering piece from this set by the great Sarah Gardner.


ten images of inspiration : a love of stripes.

I apologize for the quiet day on here. I am feeling a little under the weather and ended up spending a large portion of my day curled up under the covers in bed (which, I have to say, was marvelous.) But here are some lovely images containing many, many stripes to end your Tuesday.

flickr friday : a birthday cake...

flickr friday : a birthday cake.

...for many of my loved ones. This is always a special week in my life since it means quite a handful of birthdays of some truly fabulous people in my life. A big "Happy Birthday" to my son, my brother, my uncle, and two of my dear friends.

thought of the day : i miss it.

"I Miss Your Stupid Face," a folded note card from near modern disaster. Truth-be-told, I am not much of a romantic- I am much more a sort of playful teaser, so this is the kind of card I would buy someone I love. Don't judge me too harshly. ($4)

madly in love with...

the unique and lovely patterns by Danielle Atkinson of Australian clothing label Milk From A Thistle.

"Be Well," a limited-edition screenprint by Betsy Walton. ($20)


like a dream.

The work of NYC photographer Joanna Van Mulder always manages to blow me away. She manages to create such a lovely little dream world in each of her photographs.

stamped with love.

I am quite in love with this Par Avion scarf, designed by Inca Starzinsky. It reignites my deep love of mail art. ($295)

interior inspiration : neon pops.

With it already being one month into spring and a mere two months until summer, I am thinking that I might be needing some more color in my life. It is the time of year for the boldest and brightest of colors, although I love them most when they come in little pops.
