I love this cottage for various reasons. The top reason being the light blue door followed closely by the wallpaper and outdoor space. I have nothing really clever to say about this topic so I’ll leave you with the fact that as I’m writing this, Ryan and I are working on our night cheese.

Cool couples are my fave

August 30, 2010

I’m happy to introduce a new series I’m going to be featuring on YAMF, Cool Couples. Here’s the breakdown:

Cool couples sharing their secrets of being cool + an amazing illustration from Gemma Correll = an all-around fun time

The first couple are the Chos. Joy being the genius behind Oh Joy and Bob being her cool other half (who happens to be pretty good at the blogging thing too). Thanks Chos!

Shabby Apple is my fave (Friday giveaway!)

August 27, 2010

I’ve professed my love of Shabby Apple on more than one occasion. It’s just that next to the cardigan, a well made dress is my fave piece of clothing. And I’m not sure it gets much better than this jitterbug dress that is up for grabs today. Charcoal. Thick banded waist. Cluster of flowers. Sleeves. Non wrinkle. Part of a healthy closet.

To enter:
Visit Shabby Apple and leave a comment on this post before next Friday, September 3rd. Make sure to leave an email address if it’s hard to track down. The winner will be chosen randomly and contacted by me through email.

Oh, and the beret is completely optional.

Today is super is my fave

Sarah always creates the most fun stuff for The Small Object. It has just the right amount of quirk for me. I especially love the Today is Super journal. Today is super. Ryan and I are celebrating four years of marriage. Give it up, what what. That was to be said in a Liz Lemon voice.

Hip Hip Hooray is my fave
