eddie ross

If you watched the last season of Top Design, you'll probably remember Eddie Ross. He was one of my favorites, and now I read his blog on a regular basis. He has great decorating and styling tips, like here and here, and I've ended up simply copying a couple of things he's done.


oliver + s

oliver + s makes really fun patterns for kids, and I'm in love with the drawings. I just want to squeeze the cheeks on those little kids in their cute clothes!

I'm going to start the pj's in that first picture sometime next week...hopefully.

yummy kiwis

This is a little different post than usual, but I had to share. Finding a new way to do something makes me happy. I was making a fruit salad for something this week, and I wanted to add kiwis. After doing a little internet research, I came across the perfect way to peel and slice one up, while having them actually turn out pretty and not all awkward shaped, as mine usually are.

1. Cut off the ends
2. Get a spoon, and work it in between the fruit and skin with the spoon upside down.
3. Work all the way around, then repeat on the other side.
4. Once it's all loosened, you can just sort of pop out the fruit.

See how pretty and perfect they are?! And it doesn't waste much fruit either.


studio mela

I like SO many prints in this shop. I've seen this first one in quite a few places now, and it always makes me smile.


cashmere warmth

Ear warmer or headband? Either way, it's calling my name.

Found at plumo, a new-to-me site that I adore.



I like these pieces made from unwanted wooden beams and blankets. People come up with such wonderful things!



I've been drawn to all kinds of garlands lately. I'm working on one like this over the weekend.
