“We were together. I forget the rest.”


so if you’re thinking my recent absence has been due to me rushing about, making all kinds of lovely holiday-ish things… you’d be wrong. i have had the croup. {am i 2 years old? is it 1843?} anyway… i DID manage to bookmark a few things i

first off, stripe&field. i have been waiting on pins and needles for their stuff to debut since i first got wind of them… and kittens… it is everything my little paper-loving heart could dream of. simple, sweet, full of soul and character. i want. every.single.thing. i seriously {and you can quote me here} think it might be my favorite letterpress offering. ever. just look…

gingham tree card

animal card set

gingham thank you cards

simple sprig cards

and, patch nyc folded cards

these jammies, that i believe i mentioned a while back. how about… monogrammed?? {and i must add, j.crew has gotten a little out there with the pricing lately; these aren’t bad at all}.

reclaimed apothecary matchbook bottle, with a hand etched striking surface on the bottom. beautiful+genius. spartan

barbara hill design, via seesaw. big crush.

this calendar… wow. frameworthy. via kayla.

and lastly, for the littles, this star bonnet. is there anything cuter than a baby in a pilot cap? that’s right. there’s not.

BELIEVES: “A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security.” Albert Einstein “The important thing is not to think much but to love much and so do that which best stirs you to love.” St. Teresa of Avila “People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances without own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” Joseph Campbell
