Oh, my goodness. These are the cutest buttons in the world. It makes me want to sew new (and fabulous) buttons on all my non-snazzy cardigans.

MISERABLE SELF PITYING LOSER PIE – “Lumpy oatmeal with fruitcake mashed in. FlambĂ©ed of course …” It appears to be one of those days.

So pretty. Leather. Strappy. Assymmetrical. Gorgeous.

Etsy, equally blessed and evil shopping partner. This necklass is so simple and pretty and at a decent price too!

Oh, so lovely!

My mother recently returned from a trip to Colorado, Nevada, Utah, and New Mexico and brought back beautiful pieces of turquoise jewelry. She brought me back a really beautiful turquoise studded, sterling silver hair stick (now I need to grow enough hair to use it...) to add to my hodge podge collection of hair jewelry. Hair jewelry is often hard to find but I absolutely love wearing it. I also have curly hair so it holds and shows off hair pins, buckles, and combs well. These combs are made by New Orleans artist Monique Leon and are simply gorgeous.

reminds me of orangina

I found this a long time ago and it reminds me of Orangina.

Today I am thankful for watering the garden in the morning fog. I am thankful for the rhythms of the fog--cool, lavender mornings, turning into a startling blue midday, the fog whistling back in at four, then closing with rosy ash colored evenings. I am thankful for picking strawberries with my son. I am thankful for toddler flip flops and fat kid feet. I am thankful for fresh coffee with cream and sugar and reading the newspaper. I am not thankful for some things today but I'm choosing to dwell on skipping stones and cracking creme brulee.
