my favorite gets

All the gift guides out there got me in the mood to do a few of my own.  These are things that I have come across and loved.

FOR HER (aka as things I’d feel lucky to find under the tree;)


sconce  / oval cabochon ring  /   earthenwear pitcher  /    brown leather doctor bag

edit: btw I know that sconce is rather indulgent, but I’m having quite an obsession with it, so I had to add it :)



astronomical drawings  /  wood headphones  /  to my health flask  /  audio lightbulb



draw your own flip book bank  /   feather clips  /  horse print

happy weekend!

Here’s hoping you have a lovely weekend!  I am chaperoning a ‘girls night’ at my daughter’s school (seems like everyone I talk to had a universally horrible middle school experience, me included).  I also am itching to paint and work on a horse costume.  As in a costume for a horse.  Good times!

Here were my favorite pins this week:


This made me laugh because I pretty much always have paint on my hands, and the day I saw this I had stepped in some as well :)

happy friday!

Ah, Friday.  I picked my husband up at the airport this morning.  He’s been in Asia for the past few weeks, so this weekend we will be adjusting to having him back around (what my friend calls ‘re-entry’)!  Oh, we will also be burrying our beloved ‘fishy’ who died a few days ago.  He was a guppy my daughter had gotten in the 2nd grade, so he was around 4 years old, a good long life for a fish, I’d say.

Here were some of my favorite pins this week, have a lovely weekend…


1.  I love the title of this book, so true, don’t you think? ‘A Perfectly Kept House Is The Sign of a Mispent Life,’ found here

2.  Obsessed with Cy Twombly right now

3.  This outfit says fall to me, found here

a find

I just wanted to share this beautiful shop I just discovered, Elk.  Not only are their things beautiful, but the packaging is lovely.  That always earns huge bonus points, and even though they are in Australia, their shipping is super fast!



(thanks Annie for introducing me to this beautiful store!)

Death by Toast

Toast, please stop.  You are killing me.  The clothes (yum) but also the little videos for each piece.




(thank you to Olivet for reminding me how amazing their stuff is)

window shopping

I have a very sick kid at home (day 4 with super high temp=no fun, poor kid).  So while we watch every Harry Potter movie (again, again and again) I have been sitting here finding all sorts of stuff I now want.   The list includes:


adorable dress via lamixx (i will be wearing this a lot this fall with jeans/tights)
