wear this cosy and casual, yet ever so stylish mustard hued frock paired so sweetly with that blazer and scarf before it actually starts to warm up again.

make these pickled sour cherries and this shallot marmalade for a smashing appetizer tray while you watch the oscars sunday night. i'm thinking pairing it with a nice goat cheese on warm toasty french bread and a glass of prosecco might be nice.

do check out this darling quarterly by 3191. stunning.

i used to let you wear all of my clothes...

i think my closet is in desperate need of a little sprucing up.
not much color, not much pattern.
and, not too mention, i am totally sick of all of it.
i grew up with a sister on either side of me,
then went on to college to always have awesome roommates,
thus i always had people to share clothes with.
i really miss that every time i become completely sick of my own clothes...
which is a lot.

has me dreaming up a springy wardrobe
for the little guys.
treasures galore i tell ya.
i'll take an order of those shoes in my size too.
and how cute would the vest be over that white dress
as a snazzy girlie getup?

wear a lovely and cozy long skirt. like this one. or this one. or whichever one you have in your closet.
make this delicious eggs galette for brunch this weekend. served with some orange juice and sunshine. mmmm...
do make time to write a thank you note to someone (or something?) you love. even if just to say thank you for being you.

and i peeked in on you

light is an interesting and fascinating thing.
i have been really trying to learn the light in each different corner of my house.
and at each different time of day.
once i have it mastered, i will force my kids to play 
in the loveliest light
and take secret pictures of them.
just kidding.
kind of...

little notes

i have been really wanting to make my own version of this lovely gift for some time now,
so i finally decided valentine's day was as good an excuse as any.
it made me so happy to put all these fun little trinkets together in a box
and drop them at the door of someone i love.

you should make one for someone.  it will make you really happy...

collage no. 2

i might have a thing for shades of green
in the trim and string department.
