color me happy...


(rachel ashwell, weheartit, purlsoho window, fishs eddy display, polanoid)
today i am grateful for...


1. an apple that was once lost but now is found. thanks to a special boy named ernie. this was sent in the mail today to a teacher who is very near and dear to my heart...




2. a wonderful old dictionary re-covered in darling candy-striped paper. the former owner, a little girl named ruby, wrote all the names of the boys in her class on the inside cover. this purchase came today in the mail from afton waring's etsy shop, kitty and the baby. how cute is that name? how cute is this girl? she's the gal modeling some mighty fine vintage treasures on her site. i want. to buy. it all.



3. recovering photos of the yummy yarn from the union square flea market. this little stall sells really wonderful wool yarn in the best colors! i told ed i might have to give up city life to go dye wool on a farm in upstate new york. and he looked at me like i was crazy :)







4. receiving a yummy two-cupcake boxed treat from colin quiggly. anyone who has spent more than 15 minutes with me knows the way to my heart is in the form of a magnolia cupcake. vanilla with pastel icing-pink, mauve, blue, or yellow. how great is his name? like a proper harry potter character or irish school boy.



i am yearning for spring. and color. and lovely smells. and flowers blooming. and late-night dancing. and picnics in the park. and train rides to the country. and rowboats on ponds under weeping willows. it's almost here...

Cute cupcakes, but I don't know if I would go to Magnolia Bakery. Last year they were shut down by the health department for mouse problems. Yuck! See here.
