it's been one of those days...

yep, we all have them.
mine ended with me crying in my kitchen over the breakage of a sweet, etched flower drinking glass that i got at st. vinnies for 42 cents. that's right, 42 cents. but, it was simple, lovely and charming and well, it made me happy.
so, tonight i'm keeping with that theme and putting up images of the simple, lovely and charming. with that said, here's to less slippery fingers...

i want...

so, after some thought i decided that i wanted a couple of consistent blog topics per week. mondays will be called "i want" because, well, i want it and what better place to indulge myself than my self-indulgent blog? ha, ha! here goes....

to start wearing ties! this one is extra special.

Lessons from a Tailor. Directed by Galen Summer from Ed David on Vimeo.

to watch this one more time.

to say this a little more. although miss chloe would disagree.

this on a prominent wall in my home.

this darling handknit canadian cowl.

to be part of this magic.

to start a collection of these.

to see this asap.

to add this to my inspiration board.

to do a lot more of this.

there it is! happy monday, dear pals. what do you want?

new years wish list

granted, christmas is over.
but it's not stopping me from making a wish list. some of them are simple, others grand. maybe i'll be my own fairy godmother this year.

a perfect oxford.

a breathtaking sofa.

a delicious chocolate bar.

a charm to remind me.

a lovely gig poster by a lovely musician.

an extra fancy camera.

a silly shirt with a serious statement.

a little bit of this.
ah, yes, well...looks like fun, no?
