Fancy fringe...

I think Barbara Bonner is a little too fashion forward for me, how about you? Although, there is something to the fringe effect and it's kinda fun. 
Peyton Thorp, I vote YOU give this look a go.

Because I definitely DON'T need another bag.
But then again...who says we're working on a need basis here?

Dessert granola?

Because there's no way I'd save this for breakfast.

I'm nixing the yogurt-yogurt. 
Instead, let's go with frozen yogurt.

DIY bottles and brushes...

We've been saving wine bottles this year. And we have...quite a few. Not to
mention, this weekend helped us out a bit. I'm thinking this project would
put those bottles to better use - especially if Ellie decides to pick
us more fresh flowers. We've got the bottles, we've got the
brushes. Hodgson 201 - want to give this a go?
The more crafts the merrier, yes?

Please say yes!

See you Monday.

Arab Ink

Tattoos with a story. 
Read more online

"My Mother"
"My father's full name...he loved life, had presence and made sure everyone was happy
 around him. He helped a lot of people. I looked and still look up to him deeply..."
"Sabir, the word patience."
"Al Thawra, means The Revolution. Refers more to spiritual awakening and the
promise of new beginnings - you can always start over in other words."
"My daughter's name."
"Beirut is home."

My goal is to photograph those people who have taken to tattooing themselves 
with modern Arabic lettering, as a means to explore the various ways in which 
the younger generation of the Arab world is expressing itself. The idea is that 
these tattoos are manifestations of the prideful connections these young 
individuals have with their rich historical heritage, and the way in which 
they wear that connection on their physical bodies.

I'm totally into these.
Whaddya think Mom?

My own little attic...

Mondays are hard. They make me want to cozy up somewhere, anywhere, and 
NOT tackle my to-do list. Especially since this weekend is Spring 
Party and the countdown to Friday Wednesday is on.

Spaces like these would be great for today, little attic spaces of escape. 
We have an attic at home - well, I guess most people do, and ours 
is hot and full of storage. Someday, if I ever have an attic, 
I'd like to make it looks like these. And then I'll 
spend my Mondays there. 


There is beauty all around when there is love at home.

Where will you spend your Monday?

May your weekend be filled with sunshine, pancakes, and berries.

Candle crush...

Remember my candle craze? 

First, I wanted to make decorate my own. 

And then I was introduced to these. 

And now I've been introduced to these. 

Time to order a new candle, I suppose.


And cross my fingers for a winning prize!


I'll be sure to let you know if I'm one of those lucky 
few to win a prize worth $500-$5,000.

Wednesday wordplay...

Sometimes words are put together so perfectly. 
These ones in particular. 

This speaks so clearly to where my heart and head have been the past two weeks.
Sitting back, and being quiet - those are moments of power.
{right, Tilden?}

This one goes for all of us - sometimes we've just got to let it go. 

Do you ever put your life on a timeline? It's one of my flaws.
Let's stop that.
What good does it do, anyway?

What doesn't this apply to?

Be you. The "chin up" version of you.
It's the best one.
