Meg Werner

I got some really beautiful photos in the mail today that I ordered from Etsy seller Meg Werner. I learned about her from the fabulous Maditi Likes.

I chose two prints from her Colorado series and she had them enlarged. I just love how abstract it looks. I will put it up soon, but since we have really hard plaster walls, I have to wait for O to use a drill and a special screw so we don't hurt the plaster.

OH, and check out the 5x7 rug from Urban Outfitters that I scored for NINE DOLLARS!

I finally did it!

OK, I finally did it. I got the most beautiful jacket I could find. I have been looking for something tailored and unusual and well made for about three years. I sold a bunch of my clothes on eBay, and I have been waiting for it to go on sale...but it has not, and I thought maybe it would get sold here it is! I can't wait to get it in the mail. I ordered it form the store so I didn't have to pay for shipping! Now though, I can't buy anything until I sell more clothes....but I don't have anything left to sell.

Wool Oxford Jacket in Liberty Blue by JCrew, $285.00


I don't know why I think I live in some Victorian novel where ladies have a ready supply of tea goodies on hand for callers and a salon with a fireplace and cozy chairs to sit on and make friendly conversation...but for some reason I feel like I need more serving platters and what-not. I have been looking for antique silver on eBay...but this is what really makes me smile. I just found this shop via Decor8...Huset-Shop!

I love this Bengt & Lotta 3-Level Serving Tray.

Slavic Brass and Girl Crush!

Hope you had a nice Turkey day! On a totally unrelated note, if you have not heard of Nellie McKay, and you like witty music with a beautiful voice, you have to check her out. I have a total girl crush on her.

Also, dreaming of Slavic Soul Party as the best wedding band...I saw them live in Brooklyn and it was just as fun to watch as to listen as to dance, so a triple whammy... If you live in New York, go check them out at Barb├ęs, on 9th street and 6th Ave in Park Slope...right by my old place....sigh.

Wow, I can't believe that Thanksgiving is this week! I have been in la la land. First O and I had a death in the family, and then, we realized that our preferred wedding venue, Serenbe, is not preferred after all. I will not bad mouth them, but you can email me if you want a candid opinion.

So I have been doing tons of research and I thought I would ask you wedding veterans out there for your opinion. I am thinking of the Four Seasons or the Ritz Carlton, sounds pricey, but actually, not as pricey as renting a venue and paying for a caterer, and much less hassle. Anyone been to a large party or reception around Atlanta that you liked? Any suggestions?

I just want to be clear, Serenbe is a great place, it may not work for our own wedding, but I have talked to many people who have had a wonderful experience having a wedding there, and I think that it could be really special for the right bride.

Finn Style

I love FinnStyle, I have a beautiful serving tray from there, and I just about want everything on that site. I already showed O the ittala Taika dinnerware because I really love them, hint hint. Right now until 11.15.07 enjoy free shipping on any order over $100, enter ship388 checkout.


Here is a peek at what Domino did with my beloved dishes, sweet huh.


Dude, those are her actual gloves, I think, along with her jacket; plus she is rocking that purple thing look, wow, she is so cool. Sartorialist, of course!

Thank the LAWRD it's Friday

Left over apple tart with lemon creme for breakfast, I only did that one day and then gave my sister the left over tart. If you have some extra apples laying around, this is soo easy and yummy. I usually leave all of the sugar out of the recipe, and always always always make your own crust (without sugar).

New Shoes Part II

Second pair of sale shoes from Anthro: Devotte, have to wait until it gets warm again, but it was worth it. I think these may be my favorites, I had been eyeing them for months!

Plugging away...I had been out of commission painting for a few days b/c of my neck, darn neck. I went to my wonderful massage therapist and he made me cry, it was almost as painful as when I broke two toes dancing around in the kitchen...make sure there are no doorways with lots of hard, wooden trim around when you do that...and today, I am free and well and I got that painting feeling.

Seriously though, go see him if you live in Atlanta, or visit, he is amazing, and sweet and wholesome and cute as pie.

New Shoes

I took my 3 year old niece to Anthropologie this weekend, she was in crazy awesome girly heaven, I had to show her everything I tried on, and she told me if it was pretty or not, and she wanted to try all the shoes on, and play around with Rabbit, her imaginary friend, who is quite a devil don't you know. She thought these shoes were the prettiest, b/c it looks like I am on tippy toe. I think they are so cool. Plus, marked down to 50% off, then another 50% off...I got three pairs, but I would not want any one's brain to explode, so I will only reveal them in stages.

Do they show too much toe to wear with tights? (Opaque ones, sheesh, I hear you cringing) I think so, but what do you think?

Super Hero Polka Band

I love this post card set. I would frame them all in a row, for a child's room, and then make up a crazy story with them about what is going on...lets see. "Mad scientist nerd brain washes school girls into fighting his cause...the liberation of his polka band members from detention...but then it turns out that the ring leader is actually he band's lead singer, they decide to take the look of the band in a cool super hero direction...they become famous..."my poor kids, they are going to be so confused.

My pillow

I have been meaning to post about my new pillow. It is such a bright ray of light in my living room! I love all Lena Corwin's work, I don't know why I waited so long to get it!

I got that chair from Craigslist, I am going to cover the cushions for it but I have not made the fabric yet, and that towel is a recent thrifty find, I love thrifting.
