And Speaking of Spring...

We turtally snarfed our train ride glass of wine a couple of weeks ago when we saw an ad in a magazine for Liberty at Target. I practically squealed out loud much to the annoyance of my fellow passengers. Of course I popped in last night to see what I could find.

However, it was one of those moments where I was on my way home from work and only wanted to be at home, and was wearing uncomfortable shoes that made me walk funny so as not to hurt a blister, and this really affected my shopping mood. Also, I find that sometimes I'll buy something because I love the pattern, but when I get home I realize that I don't need 3 more mixing bowls, a cookie jar and even more tumblers... so I shall go back this weekend when I am ready. If everything has gone, I will take that chance. I will say, however, that everything I did see was marvelous and loverly.

(unfortunately from what I've seen, I think the bikes are all sold out. boo)

Is it Here??

The past few days have been A-mazing. It really feels like the warm weather is upon us! I think that perhaps I've been in a bit of a funk this new year...I'm not sure why, or even realized I was, until the rains stopped, we had lighter days, and I could put away my boots. (no offense to the boots, of course-they know they are all well loved). But I suddenly feel lighter, and happier, and a little more clear headed. Which is incredibly important for me, as my head is fuzzy enough with all of the silly things I think about all the time. Happy Almost Spring!

Big and Small

I had the most PERFECT birthday weekend. About 12 of us rented a house up by Russian River and went to the Russian River Barrel Tasting event. It was soo much fun; photos to come soon. But even better were the amazing gifts I got, including, 2 pairs of shoes (I married the right guy!) an adorable clutch, a lovely vintage square handbag, and a HUGE embroidered bag from Anthropologie. Erik bought it for me, and I can't find a photo of it online, so I'll have to take a photo. For now, I'll leave you with these two lovelies also from there...let's hope spring hurries up so we can start wearing all of the amazing spring shoes out there now...hurry. please.

Tiny Owls

I fell off the planet a bit there...I've been busy at work, had parents visiting, and on top of it all, caught a nasty cold. No excuse... This friday is my birthday. Which basically gives me an excuse to buy tiny owl purses... on sale at Anthropologie. Love.
