Plümo Pretties

I bookmarked Plümo a while ago when I saw some images on An Indian Summer. There isn’t that much detail to be found about the company on the site, but it sounds like they look for original products that can’t be found in your typical retail mall setting. All from “artisans, co-operatives from Africa to…

What does Kate Spade love?

Here is a super cute little online book to tell you: See more HERE. AND – let them know what you love. They might add it to the collection. Via Twitter: @katespadeny #thingswelove

When I Have a Brand New Hairdo…

I just got a haircut recently. Here is a picture that George (of all people) took of me at the playground. Eleanor wasn’t a huge fan because it wasn’t “fancy” (which is clear in the no make up, playground outfit look above), but I still love it. There is somthing about completely changing your hair…

The Swell Mrs. Lilien’s Gift Giving Guide

Years ago, I gave my best friend (who was single and living in Georgetown at the time) a book called Swell: A Girl’s Guide to the Good Life. I loved that book…such great tips and advice, like how to exit a limo gracefully and how to “duke” (passing a tip with a closed hand). I…

Project Runway Season 8 Final Collections (+ "And I Call Myself a Blogger…")

I meant to write something about the Project Runway season finale, but finding time to collect the images proved more difficult than expected. Since it’s been a week, I’m not too worried about spoilers. If for any reason you haven’t heard about the winner and don’t want to know, stop reading now. I’ll get right…

Needful Things: A Life of Style by Rebecca Moses

I recently read about designer Rebecca Moses’ new book, A Life of Style – and I really think I must have it. Illustrated with fanciful watercolors, A Life of Style provides inspiration and practical advice for developing your own personal style through eschewing rules and appreciating style constants. Here are some images I was able…

The Glamorous Life

My father just sent me several e-mails with pictures and information about my grandparents and great grandparents (even the great-greats), but my favorites are the ones of my Grandma Olive. She was quite lovely and the old photographs show her in wonderful vintage fashions. She died very young at 43, but she did a lot…

Flashback: Try Walking in My Shoes – Why Don’t You?

After taking my laptop in for repairs, I assumed that it would be a while until I got it back. In the meantime, I’ve set up posts for some vintage stuff from The Big Piece of Cake: a little weekly feature called “Materialistic Monday” about stuff I was currently into (or just wishing I could…

A Well Styled Room

I love these images from UK interior stylist, Katie Sellers: Discovered on Brabourne Farm (of course).

Nesting Newbies and The Treehouse Press

A couple of things today… First, I found a new online magazine last week called Nesting Newbies (also see the website: nestingnewbies.com). It’s all about “homemaking,” really – specifically, cooking, entertaining and decorating. The layout is well done and the features have something for everyone. My favorites were… …this series of table set designs (complete…
