round about: feeling the altitude

Thumbnail image for round about: feeling the altitude

It’s feeling like a whirlwind around here – how could it possibly be Friday already? Oh I know what’s happening, too much prep for Alt Summit. You know, like I currently have $800 worth of clothing in my Anthropologie online shopping cart. (no, I’m not getting all of it, or perhaps any of it). But […]

round about: bug-eyed babies & citified meditation

Thumbnail image for round about: bug-eyed babies & citified meditation

Ok, so really all I want to talk about is prepping for Alt Summit. But since I know that’s a really boring topic unless you’re A) a blogger, B) going to Alt or have been to Alt, and C) know me well enough to care, I’m trying to reign it all in. Though I do […]

Yep, I’m already dreaming of summer. Sub zero temperatures for weeks at a time will do that to a gal. Butterfly poster from Life on Mars Design.

As usual, I thought I was ready for Christmas, and then it hits me with the freezing surprise of a speeding snowball! Oh my goodness, the number of things I’d like to get done between now and Tuesday is, um, mind-numbing. But all of it is fun holiday stuff, so I’m working hard to find […]

round about: a zillion lights & a juniper roof

Thumbnail image for round about: a zillion lights & a juniper roof

We’ve moved from the “Oh it’s the Christmas Season La-de-da” phase to the “Oh crap it’s Christmas in 11 days and I am NOT READY” phase. Yep, it hit me yesterday that there’s just a zillion and one things to do between now and then. And the mother of all colds has taken up lodging in […]

I’ve probably said this several times already, but one day, I will have a swing inside my home. This beauty designed by  Iwona Kosicka might do nicely.

Thumbnail image for round about: hats on the move & radiant orchid

This week was a week of firsts: the first big snowfall that’s going to stick around, the first day of single-degree temps (Brrrrr!), and my first cold. So, in honor of the cold, I’m going to give in to the constant coughing and let this week’s top links speak for themselves. Ugh. Round about the […]

round about: counterintuitive parenting & paint smears

Thumbnail image for round about: counterintuitive parenting & paint smears

We went to Birdie’s Montessori school yesterday for one of their Parent-child nights. It’s this amazing chance for kids to show their families exactly what it is they do all day long in that strange-looking Montessori room. Seeing Birdie bursting with confidence, chatting with her peers, and taking charge of her “work” in the room […]

Thumbnail image for worth 1000 words: is it still a rocking horse?

Is a rocking horse still a rocking horse if there is no horse? I think maybe so. See more images of Michael Svane Knap’s GRO rocking horse design at Blog Esprit Design.

round about: holidays and diys

Thumbnail image for round about: holidays and diys

I used to be one of those people who thought we needed one holiday at a time. Halloween – without Christmas. Then Thanksgiving – without Christmas. But I have to tell you. As I get older time moves faster. In fact, it moves waaaay too fast. Plus, I absolutely love Christmas. The other holidays are […]

I’m in the mood for an adventure today, and riding on the hilly back of a deer while masquerading as a bunny sounds just fine. See all the wonders from Joutomaa, and thanks to Little Scandinavian for the find.

Thumbnail image for round about: mermaid tails & treehouse boxes

November is the sneakiest month ever. It just hides behind Halloween and lies in wait. Suddenly, shazam, and here we are! I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween. My favorite moment, aside from Birdie’s fabulous costume, was handing out candy to a line of 15 kids at my door. I’m not sure when our […]
