love : taxes

a cute calculator like this would make tax time a little more enjoyable. but only a little...

sibling love

when you are a five year old girl it is all about rainbows and phonetic spelling. she made this and taped it on her big brother's door: 'best brother in the world'. word or should i say "WRD".

beautiful burda

isn't this a lovely dress - perfect for spring. there is a european deli near our new place so i no longer have to make the long trek downtown to get burdastyle magazine. my sewing plans for spring include joining the kid's clothes making week. my goal is to make something for each kid and sew from my stash. the reward: make myself this lovely dress... maybe silk jersey...

black beauty

came across this beauty in my search for a floor lamp. it's life size and about $7500 but it doesn't eat or poop, no stable dues, and would not cause my husband to have an allergic reaction. shipping is free and 'white glove service'. does that mean a jockey delivers? is this a gelding? i love it but the shade needs some dingle balls.

spring decorating

the little guy is obsessed with cars. he sleeps with them, lines them up around his plate, hoards them in his pockets. i got him this wall decal for his room so he can drive his cars all over the ikea carpet and then up the wall. it's great because it is repositionable/reusable - great for a rental home.
