A little this and that....


284 Stairs to the top of Bunker Hill........
Yes, made it to the only 284 stairs back down!

I'm back from a long weekend trip to Boston, involving lots of walking, history, wonderful food and some much needed rest. Now it's back to the, work and work. But it still feels good to be home!

Some high-lights from last week that I didn't have time to post before scooting out of town.....

I worked on a closet last week that will be featured in Japan's Harper Bazaar(I know I'm patting myself on the back a bit here...) in the coming months! Here's a little preview of the before and after (I took these and I'm not a photographer).

I'm a winner!

I'm a little late posting this...
Last week I won a lovely eco-friendly bag from Maegan, of Maegan.

I got my bag last week and I've already put it to good use! Get a bag like this, here.

Thank you Maegan!

A little sunshine.....

Lately I've been loving all things yellow....

I'm a huge fan of Lauren Merkin bags and when I saw this adorable Cecilia bag in yellow, it made me smile. Yellow is such a happy color. I'd love to carry around this buttery leather bag. What a great pop of color!

My favorite color. I love the blending of the different shades in this yarn. It makes me want to knit a scarf. I actually took a knitting class last summer and I have yet to finish my first project....but this yarn is really inspiring me today...

Lovely images for a dreamy Friday night....

I have spent my Friday night going through all these dreamy images from photographer Duston Todd. His work is creative, unique and just wonderful! I love each and every unexpected photograph. As I would call Charles over every couple of minutes..."Oh, look at this one!" After doing this for an hour, he finally asked me, "Are you still looking at the same photography?" Well sir, as a matter of fact, I am and honestly you should too!!

Here are a few of my favorites.......

He's looking at you do you understand why these images took over my night? They are lovely and oh so dreamy. Well done.
