Music and Movie Mondays: Bone & Bell

Check out new artist Bone & Bell.  I think you'll really enjoy the dreamy vocal stylings.  And who can resist a ukelele?

Listen here.  My favorites are Flying, Falling, Crawling and O' The Death of the Caspian Sea.
Full disclosure:  I went to high school with Heather Smith, the brains (and beauty!) behind this operation.  But it's actually really good.  Just ask NPR!  Or Peter Bjorn & John!

Wednesday Wishlist: Mrs. Pomeranz

As a result of several recent ill-fitting purchases, I've sworn off online clothes-shopping.  (Please don't remind me of this later when I give in!)  But the dresses from Mrs. Pomeranz are so lovely that I may need to make an exception.  And she'll even make custom pieces for you, if you have some extra shillings!

Tuesdays are for Traveling: getaway girl

I'm headed to Fredericksburg, Texas on Friday for a ladies' weekend.  On our itinerary:  hiking, drinking, lots and lots of sausage and beer (it's a German town!), hair braiding, you name it.  How I wish that Caroline over at greedy girl could design the perfect getaway outfit for me.  Have you seen her recurring post "getaway girl"?  Genius.  The best ones?  Taos, Memphis, and Marfa.

She did this one for Portland, but maybe it would work for Fredericksburg?  Of course, I'm not the expert...

Music and Movie Mondays: The New Classics

Slate just published a story on "the most enduring books, shows, movies, and ideas since 2000."  Some of them are pretty good.  The Wire?  I'm into that.  The iPod?  Who could argue. 


I will be seriously depressed if I Gotta Feeling is how future generations remember this decade...

Please don't even play that video I posted.

Fridays are for Families: Bookplates

Doing anything fun this weekend?  We're baptizing Violet on Sunday, so we have family in town.  Which means lots and lots of eating.  Yay! 

Now, how about these fantastic bookplates?  I love love love them.

Wishlist Wednesdays: Love letters

Well, before I get started, I want to acknowledge that I've been a TERRIBLE friend to you all.  I've completely abandoned you these last two weeks.  Sorry, everybody!  Work has been just crazy and I haven't had a moment to spare between 90 hour weeks and trying to see my fam every once in a while. 

But I'm back!  I hope you haven't been too lonely without me.  ;) my wishlist:

Who wouldn't want to get one of these beautiful love letters?  All you have to do is come up with something nice to say and the folks at paperfinger will write it out for you in the most amazing calligraphy.  (Ahem, Beau.)
