Hello lovies, what are you doing this weekend? With my laundry crisis over, I plan to spend the weekend reading Lisa See’s new book, Shanghai Girls! bliss…xoxox PS: Photo by the fantastic Rosie Hardy. She’s 18 years old and already an amazing photographer. (Her myspace page and flickr pages here.) Her work is not without […]

Folk Art Yard Sale


One of my neighbors recently had a yard sale He sold of some of the old paintings that he and his father created in their garage workshop Of course, I had to lug home the giant matador and various pieces of Mexican folk art I can rarely resist a yard sale, especially one this colorful, […]

Funny Moneygami


Perhaps this is further evidence that I spend too much time on the Internet (if that’s possible). While cruising around I discovered Moneygami on a site called Fun Fever. It’s so clever (although I feel bad for the guy who was made into a potted plant). I think Thomas Jefferson er I mean Alexander Hamilton […]

Miss Liss


I simply adore lovely Liss and her beautiful blog, Daydream Lily. She finds the dreamiest photos.

Laundry Crisis Over!


My dears, I’m happy to report that I have finally finished my laundry, hung up all the coats that were slug over a chair (since December), and put away all my shoes…Although I’m still missing one pair of leopard print flats, I’m ready to face the world again with clean socks!! More pictures from the […]

Black Cat, Observed

As the proud person of two black cats, I love these sketches by Olkazavr, found on flickr. They remind me a little of Peter Alexander’s series on his beloved cat, Romance. Hope your Tuesday is off to a good start! xoxo

The Ultimate Inspiration Wall


I could spend hours looking at this collage by interior designer Diane Bergeron. Click here to see it under a virtual magnifying glass. It takes just a few moments to load. xoxo

Many Shades of Ocean Blue


I love this photo by Yosigo on Flickr. Seemed fitting for the holiday. How was your weekend? I spent the weekend trying to catch up on laundry! I haven’t been able to reach the bottom of the laundry basket in weeks. (Usually I just give up and head to Target to buy socks and knickers.)

Fuji Instax 200


I know it’s not Polaroid… But maybe it will do? Once all the Polaroid film in the world is gone? Do you think Fuji will work? I was dismayed to discover that my local source of Polaroid film (at $18.99 a pack!) was running out….I figured I would give the Fuji Instax 200 a try…It […]

Helena Christensen’s Bohème Abode


Paris Vogue this month features the model’s fantastic NYC apartment… I love her inspiration walls and tattered art… And makeshift furniture… A sophisticated magpie, indeed… “Tous les objets, et il y en a des milliers, sont des souvenirs vrais ou adoptés chez les brocanteurs du dimanche, à Chelsea ou à la campagne.” Loosely translated: She […]

The International Society of Girls in Tulle?


What do you think? Should we form a Facebook group? The Washington ballet photo reminded me, yet again, of my favorite fabric. (Even though it has the texture of a Brillo pad, it’s so, so lovely.) PREVIOUSLY: The International Society of Girls in Flats.

Tutu, too?


Hello everyone. How was your Wednesday? This photo of some of the members of the Washington Ballet made me laugh out loud! It was taken by Cade Martin and is now making its way through the Tumblr world. I want to walk around town in a tutu!

Hang On

Hanging On

Hello loves. I know it’s probably Wednesday morning where you are. And I’m just now doing my Tuesday post here at the hospital with my dad. It was one of those days. My dad decided today that he’s had enough of the hospital and wants to escape. I don’t blame him. We spent the evening […]

Inspiration Collage


Hello darlings, Thank you for all your wonderful comments. I loved reading them.  They’ve cheered me up. (Tina Tarnoff, I can’t believe you’re still reading Revolutionary Road!) I’m here in my dad’s hospital room waiting for him to be wheeled to surgery. I’ve found it so calming looking through the beautiful photos on RedBubble. Here’s […]
