love it: marimekko

i’m loving crate & barrel’s new marimekko shop. they are a finnish company best know for bold graphic prints on fabrics and housewares. crate & barrel is carrying a huge selection and i’m loving it.  so much so that i’ve been pinning stuff like crazy.

ok, i have a confession. well actually it’s an addiction that i’ve recently acquired. it’s an addiction to…… ANGRY BIRDS. yes, angry birds. that dumb iphone game i’ve heard about for months and months and didn’t care about. now i do. so if you can’t find me or wonder why i’m not blogging, it’s because […]


elliot. my sweet dog. but let me be honest. i call him bew or bewbew, not elliot. i’m sure i’ve confused the hell out of him over the last 14 years by all the names i’ve called him but he definitely knows bew (boo). the hardest thing about being on the west coast is being […]

new obsession

i have a new addiction. it’s called pinterest. it’s a virtual scrapbook of things and ideas you like.  you can also follow other people and see what they like and “re-pin” things they have marked.  they describe it better than i can here. you can see my pinterest account here. or here: if you’re […]


ok, so i’ve been a slogger (slack blogger) again.  i swear, i’ll try to do better. i write the blog for myself to remember the things that i do and you never really think anyone is reading…so it’s nice to get the “where are you?” emails. part of my reason for slackness is that i […]


i’ve gotten a few emails about my lack of posts recently. sorry! i’ve been busy painting. yes, painting. and i’m painting on wood instead of canvas. i finally got back into it after a very long hiatus and i’m loving it. i’ve missed having paint under my fingernails and all up my arms. hoping to […]
