swiss miss found this one....
cb2 is pretty fun if you haven't checked it out yet, it's by crate and barrel but less costly.

here's to being able to open your drawers...

I found this cute site, Apartment Therapy, which I think still totally applies to me because my house is small and who doesn't need ideas on saving space. The New York version is my favorite, which is kind of disappointing because I can't just run over to Williamsburg to check out that cute vintage store they just mentioned. This blog about purging clothes is motivating. I like thinking of rather "Do I need this shirt" but "Would I love another shirt more or would someone else love my shirt more?" It's all about perspective.

baby cuteness for a blah monday...

This is my friend Jill's new baby and Amelie is adorable. This picture with her and a remote kills me because of how tiny she is!

go veggie—one day a week Meat production is so resource-intensive, if 10,000 people gave up steak once every seven days, it'd conserve enough water annually to fill 22,719 Olympic-size swimming pools.

I was kind of blown away by this fact I read in Domino Magazine. Jen Boulden from
was featured and offered tips for being green.

kind of caught my breath...

I was perusing flickr {as usual} and I stumbled on a photograph with a quote beneath it that kind of stopped me cold. I stared at it for awhile letting the words play in my head for a bit. I've reached a point in my life where I think about this a lot and it is comforting to be reassured that finding your path isn't always easy.

It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. - e.e. cummings

This idea from Blueprint magazine is adorable, although the whole idea that one is going to find these cute, funky frames for a $1 at a thrift store is ridiculous. Maybe if I lived in L.A. or NYC but not Madison, WI.

I've been searching the web for a friend who is interested in having her wedding invitation be a screen printed poster. It's such a cool and unusual idea, it's been fun to look around. I found the above poster by "unless someone like you" at

lotta jansdotter...

This sewing book by Lotta Jansdotter is filled with really fun, hip projects. I've had the book for awhile but I need to find cute fabric like hers. She is a Swedish textile designer and she sells items off her website too, like the bag above.
