soundtrack of loves gone by...

The site Cassette From My Ex is totally fascinating. True stories about those mix tapes from past loves that you can't throw away, complete with song list.

So, how many of you still have those mix tapes?

nice breeze...

This fan from Funktion Alley is so uber cute and I am in major want of this cute little desk one. Alas, they are in Europe and besides the high price tag, shipping across the pond would not be very financially feasible either. Sigh.

modern whimsy...

I am in love with how this bedspread from Three Sheets to the Wind incorporates pattern and simplicity. It's modern with a touch of whimsy. Now if it was only cheaper...

outdoor twinkle...

Why oh why don't they have an Ikea in Wisconsin? I found this darling little outdoor chandelier at apartment therapy and am now having a little Ikea lust. It's battery operated, making it ultra convenient, and can you believe it is only $4.99? Sigh.

save those corks...

These wine cork key chains from Renga Arts would be a perfect diy project! Plus they could be cute memento of a fun evening with the girls or with your sweetheart.

gotta love the online shopping...

Back in the day when Miss J and I worked together we would constantly be online shopping and shouting back and forth between offices about our finds. I miss it like you wouldn't believe. It brought back ol' times when we did a little tele-commute online shopping this afternoon. Need some bronze shoes for a wedding? No prob!

Hugs to my girl up north!

This is my shout out to all my momma & papa friends. I think this "squeezy spoon" from Land of Nod looks genius, you can feed your little one with one hand! You can blog, talk on the phone, drink a soda, whatever your other hand desires and feed with the other one!
