for jacob

believe it or not, these would be his second pair of pumas! and believe it or not, the laces flap are velro.

fabulous posters

from keep calm gallery.
i have been wanting to buy that eat your greens poster for our dining room... but these are all from a shop in england and surely they must sell them over here somewhere? anybody?

pretty pretty

seersucker cocktail napkins.  so cute.  probably could also double as hankerchiefs.  *although i don't ever use hankies, i find them a little unsanitary. 


such a fun way to share digital music.  you can personalize the "cassette" and cover it comes in. usb drive by mixa.

yellow sandals

don't you love how the sandals make the look?!  jcrew.

it's cruisin' time.  a more sophisticated version of my lavender huffy with banana seat and streamer handlebars.  all that's missing is a pretty basket.

birdie tree and night light

reminded by poppytalk
yup. you guessed it.  trees, birds, baby decor = love.  made from vintage wall paper.  jacob is toddling and it's almost time to replace the real tree in his room with something more... stable.  i love the night light.  i'm pretty sure i can do this one on my own though for less than $323!

or minty lemonade pitcher.

tin ceiling

so our dining room ceiling has always had a bit of a peeling problem.  maybe because it's an old house, or the plaster, but we can't seem to get around it.  so my solution? tin ceiling tiles!  i love the look of them, and will probably paint them an off white.  i'm also considering wall paper that looks like tin tiles (much cheaper).

ceramic bowls

beautiful, delicate ceramics by nina invorm via bloesem

tiny love

tiny happy, "handmade by me in a yellow house in southern norway".  absolutely darling.  all natural materials: wool, cotton, and linen.  and incredibly reasonable.

jewelry party

my friend heather is having a jewelry party on may 18 and selling her beautiful handmade pieces in essex vermont.  (if you are local, come!)  these are earrings she made for my birthday.  i wear them almost every day.

ankle straps

well, ankle straps and metallics are all the rage for summer sandals and here are few that are intriguing. i wanted to post my purchase from old navy (!) that were only $19.50 (!) but they are no longer for sale.  anthropologie has the best selection (top) but the worst resolution to post, the bottom 2 are steve madden, and gabriella rocha.

i love pategonia's new minty color in vests, jackets, and this pullover

poppy time

i'm so excited... our poppies (my favorite flower of all time) are steadily growing and have multipied since last spring.  i think it's safe to say spring is finally here.

return addresses

i really need to find a nice stamp or sticker for return addresses.  i really like these.  these are actually business cards, but you get the picture.  they are a little hard to read... do you think the postman minds? i never get things sent back to me anyway. they just get lost.
