Sometimes I forget the last time I used a pencil. I mean, I take notes during meetings at work, but rarely is it anything more than a quick scribble. I use my laptop and iphone for everything these days, even journaling. While I was in LA, Anne reminded me to slow down and take time for things. I’ve taken that to mean writing in a proper, paper journal. I love the idea of writing with a pencil, too. There’s something lovely about wearing down the lead to a nubbin and having to sharpen again. Plus, I always seem to need an eraser.
Tiny containers, trays, and pots are my new favorite way to stay organized, but they don’t have to be boring… and these trays and planters from Plümo are anything but! How sweet are those little feet? I can feel an urge to paint the toenails though… I’m thinking gold metallic. I love the solid color of the planters mixed in with the ikat and hand-colored bone of the trays. These would be the perfect way to control the clutter atop my dresser…

I could write about what these ladies are doing… or it could be a story of sun-warmed pinks, peachy-fleshy tones, and hits of goldenrod. I think what I love best about these images is that they share bad-habit-behavior (why is she facepalm-ing? why is she smoking?), but look damn good while doing it.
Ok, ok… maybe four really good things… These are the Half-Shell hand towels I designed for Anthropologie and I am obsessed with them. Ever since Marc sent eyelet down the runway, I knew it would be a huge trend. The challenge though is how to incorporate it into home product, aka my forté. These jacquard hand towels achieve that form/function balance — enough surface area where you could actually dry your hands, but just enough cutwork eyelet patterning to make your bathroom the most exciting room in the house. Now if only they’d dance, too…

May I please just jump ahead a few months to spring? I’d like to skip over the next two or three frigid, arctic months and jump right into white eyelet, bouquets of wildflowers, and stolen kisses atop his and hers bicycles.
Greetings from Boston-Logan airport! I am patiently awaiting my chariot back to Philly and wanted to share a few photos from my New Years trip to Boston with Dan. We had such a whirlwind trip full of celebrations with friends and family, scenic and snowy walks, and some much-needed time together. It was such a treat to spend two whole weeks with Dan, particularly because the most we ever get is a week at a time and even that is a rarity. My heart is heavy as I sit alone in my terminal, knowing he’s across the way in another terminal, but I have high hopes for another Seattle trip in January. Let the countdown begin…
ps – more photos from my trip are to come!
Ok, it’s Thursday and not Tuesday… but better late than never!
These two images are all about giving good face… and having a damn good time while doing so. I get bogged down sometimes with logistics and details, but these images tempt me to throw caution to the wind and just be. Celebrate, shall we?
