absence makes the heart grow fonder...

today i am grateful for...


1. drinking insane amounts of coffee, eating brunch at cafe cluny, and devouring cupcakes at my new favorite cupcake spot, butter lane. and with one of my favorite girls to boot!


2. this idea of apple crate shelving. sigh. why i hadn't i thought of this when i decided ikea was the storage answer to my prayers?

3. taking stock of everything i own, thanks to the sound advice of amy merrick. i have stuff. way too much. some things have got to go...hopefully sooner rather than later (wouldn't want my ikea shelves to tip over and kill a roommate or fiance). eeps.



4. my phone call from my former boss and purveyor of treasures, paula danyluk. she gave me some serious words of wisdom, and words of warning for running your own business. and this post on design sponge. just in the nick-of-time...


5 these darling type samples via the snail and the cyclops. oh my! all of those beautiful typefaces for the simplest of things. today's typefaces pale in comparison... helvetica? please.


6. sugar cubes with hearts. why can't stores like toast, cox & cox, labour and wait, and baileys home and garden exist in america? exquisite packaging. i am ready to buy anything they are selling. but hey, now we have topshop...


7. this i-phone application. sold. enought to make me want to be a grown-up with a real phone. found via ink on my fingers-a new favorite stop.

8. finding ways to occupy my time with my sweet eddie away in atlanta for his spring break. i miss him so much it hurts. it has been less than 48 hours. he just makes my life that much better when he's with me. i will be counting the time til he returns to me...

I adore your blog. I'm from Atlanta, too, btw. The last bit of this post-the quote-is from Brian Andreas. I collect his stuff, you would love it.
Oh, and would you consider doing a round up on all the things you love in NYC?

It's so hard to be apart when you've just started spending every minute together! Best of luck :)

those sugar cubes are so sweet...oh god, did I just make a really bad pun? i love the idea of stacks of crates as bookshelves, it remindes me of louise nevelsons work
