looking at on ebay...

particularly this store

jenna bush?

i don't have anything terribly insightful to add to this, but yesterday i was sick and i watched jenna bush on ellen.

she's so weird. isn't her voice odd? would i like her? i can't tell.

and do you think her and mama have a little prep backstage before they go out:

"sweety, remember, ellen is a lesbian. so if she talks about that just smile real big and wait for her to move on".

i like how ellen asks if she and portia can get married at the ranch. jenna's like, yeah! ...wait, mama, i shouldn't have said that, right?

have you tried this?

put in your address (if you own your home) and see what it's value is, what the projected 5 and 10 year values are, and lots more interesting info.

while we're on the topic of domino bedrooms

i could set up shop here. eat, sleep, read, have people come and interview me about my fabulous bed and how i live in it. everything. in this bed.

i imagine i could start with this bedding
and the curtains around the bed could be similar to these, but i'd need to get that red stripe on them.

sail away.

remember this lovely bedroom from domino? wasn't it in john frieda's lake house? maybe?

anyway, now you too can paint everything whtie and hang a sail over the bed.

voila. a sail on sale.

it does look quite nice.

so small, yet so curious.

i love these little stuffed curiousities from lyndie dourthe

an outdoor update

i know that everyone's had outdoors on the mind - us too.

i'm not really sure where to start at our house.
our backyard is a behemoth. brian has been expanding our deck and is finishing up this week.

i tried to make a dent in the landscaping by putting some rocks around this tree and planting some wildflowers.
other than that, i'm clueless. what do we do with this mess? everytime i pull up a weed it takes about 2394 units of energy, and the weed has a root about 23 feet long.

in good news, the zinnias are this tall

and i planted some new containers last week

bookcase of the day

from AT

jcrew summer sale

i've had my eye on this since i saw a girl in it at harris teeter and shrieked at her {in response to cuteness of skirt}

good style, gywneth.

i do this with my hair frequently, but i don't imagine i come out looking like this.

its that little PUMPF! behind the head band that's hard to maintain.

tiny happy moments.

i want to share with you my tiny happy moment this morning.

i stopped by the post office, and had to walk a ways down the sidewalk, when i happened to find myself behind a CORGI! - the most proudest good styling happiest dog around. i have this thing for corgis - i love them. they're like tiny little dog torpedos of goodness, with such proud ears.

anyways, behind a corgi - enough to make me happy - but he was being walked by a woman in a very cute skirt. she had her coffee, her dog, just strolling along, when she STOPS at the lovely flower shop on fairview and unlocks the door.

i continue to post office, do business, and come out to find her in a cute APRON! setting out flowers on the sidewalk for the day. she's turned on some classical music that is playing outside, and the CORGI! has settled into his dog bed inside her shop.

i could have died of sheer happiness tinged with envy.

why is this woman living my life?

quite possibly the smartest idea ever


aesthetic outburst puts prints on clipboards.


style on a budget

i just met these shoes in person and they're very good looking for $35.

additionally, here are a couple of cynthia rowley bags for target.

fairly cute.
