RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Happy 2009!

I hope your New Year’s was lovely. I spent mine far away from the city, the Internets and civilization. Now I’m back and it is cold! I know a lot of people are not fans of winter but I love it. I love fresh snow, seeing my breath and snuggling up with someone I love. January is a weird month…

CURRENT CRAVINGS

Get thee to Anthropologie

Alright, I’m sneaking one in from upstate NY…I have heard the good word, and the good word is that Anthropologie stores are putting their catalog/online returns out on the sales floor.

Whimsy and rhyme between the bind

Besides an intriguing selection of cookbooks they’ve chosen some conversation starter titles that would make great gifts for the avid reader on your list. How Now? $15Subtitled ‘100…

When times are tough, shoppers do funny things

I have worked a few retail jobs in my time, so I pity sales associates this time of year. Their stores are busy; their inventory is a mess and shoppers are by now often less than cheery.
