making me happy


Did you miss me? Well, maybe not. I took a itty bitty hiatus without meaning to, with the exception of the late Friday night coat post. Sometimes life just gets busy-busy and before you know it you've taken the longest blogging break since you launched back in June of '06. But just six days? Really not too shameful.

I do remember happening upon all of these good things last week:

1. Design Sponge's redesign. I adore the looks of the new site.
2. In Rainbows is downloadable and you get to pay what you want! See here.
3. Allison's new site. I like "Personal Collection 01."
4. Lena's rings from Lo. (Via Joanna.)
5. Time (at Target) with Jamie Annie.
6. Time with Lacey. And Jeffrey.
7. The Art Market.
8. Started week one of Photo 102.
9. Jose Gonzales from Sweden.
10. New lampshades from Anthropologie for only $40. Nightstands are looking much better, over a year later.
11. Kelly is in a magazine, and she (and her lovelies) look, well, lovely.
12. All the feel-goodness going on at Cheerios.
13. Lane's post about Angie, which makes me think about the little things that make up the people who are special to me. And how I should probably tell them.
14. First taste of real snow (this season) wasn't so bad.
15. My family gathered around a radio circa 1983 at the cabin for a few hours.

Speaking of blogging breaks, I still miss Little Special, and her knack for bringing a smile to my face.
