Safari Planters

Yes.  I'll admit it.  I'm am 100% without question shamelessly posting these so that someone will buy one for me.  They're spectacular!  SO many bubbas to choose from!!!  Happy hunting.

Stitched Nestings

These patterns be stunning, bra!  Love each and every one.  Peruse more here.

Catbird Rings

Ever since I bought my super skinny yellow gold band during a trip to India last year, I've been obsessed with other various thin band rings.  Catbird has the most amazing collection.  Take a peek!  So many casual, everyday happies at reasonable prices.  Big fan.  One of the many shops I'm missing from NYC out here in California.

Congratulations to the baby of our family... our beloved Margaret "Chonny" Thompson.  She graduates from Villanova today!  So proud of you, Chonstar!  I'll drink an extra for you tonight bud.  Wish I could be there... xo

New City. New Job. New Blog Post!

So... after months and months of posting pictures about my back and forth adventures to California, I finally made it official and made the permanent leap to the west coast.  I accepted a job offer in Los Angeles and made the move!  Been here just under 2 weeks now.  It's been a whirlwind of fun and emotion, but SO happy I made the decision to move here.  Now that I'm starting to get into a routine and have an apartment and a computer (getting that new happy today!) I will be back in it to win it with the posts.  Promise.  Though I must say, my blogging self awareness is THROUGH THE ROOF after reading this article.  I fundamentally agree with the "props" people have in their homes and that many do it all for the "show", but when collectibles have special meaning AND style, then I think this all goes out the window.  Surround yourself with things that make YOU happy.  I think that life motto permeates into home style and esthetic immensely, not just relationships.  I could wax philosophical about this for the rest of the morning, but I'll leave you instead with the article to draw your own conclusions.  Happy Saturday.  Feels good to be back.
