Spools of Thread

I love these spools of thread that Whitney of Darling Dexter found in her mother's sewing closet. She captured them perfectly!

Coffee Cozy Idea

I love this DIY coffee cozy idea I found via the new Utterly Engaged E-zine (issue 4). What a fun thing to do for a party or wedding!

Charley Harper Embroidery

I've been a fan of Charley Harper's illustrations for a while now, so when I saw that a line of embroidered pieces available of his work at Purl Soho, I knew I had to get one for a project. They are a bit pricey, so I might wait and ask for one as a Christmas present, but they sure gorgeous and colorful. Here are some of pieces that are now available through Purl Soho's website. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Whip It!

I am so ready for Drew Barrymore's Whip It to come out next week. I love roller derby (I've always wanted to join a team, but I can't skate)! I especially love the cast that Barrymore has put together. Ellen Page, Kristin Wiig, Juliette Lewis, Eve, Marcia Gay Harden and even Jimmy Fallon. Some very funny people indeed!

Benevolent Postcard - September

As you know, I signed up to be a part of the Benevolent Postcard Society for the next year. This past weekend I received my first postcard in the mail, all the way from London, England (my favorite city of course)! My postcard is from Carrie who lives in London with her musical boyfriend and has a flat full of fabric, paint, paper and pencils. She is originally from South Africa and says that one day she might even go back and be an organic farmer.

How cool is it to get a postcard from someone you don't know and with just one paragraph, feel like you could be best friends with them. It would be fun to meet Carrie one day or at least correspond through email. Maybe through our Benevolent Postcard Society blog, we'll 'meet up. Can't wait to send out my October card and get a new one in return!

To see pictures of all of the Benevolent Postcard Society cards sent, visit our flickr page.
My postcard is illustrated by Cornelia O'Donovan: blog, flickr, store

Fall Hats

I love the first signs of Fall and the cool, crisp days that are upon us. And with the cool weather comes the perfect time to wear at hat. Here are some favorites of mine that I've had my eye on this season. Enjoy!

Sunshine Cleaning

Can't wait to get home tonight to watch Sunshine Cleaning! I love Emily Blunt and Amy Adams and I am excited to see them together in this film. (Oh and Alan Arkin is in it too!)

I am looking forward to meeting up with a few friends and relaxing this holiday weekend. Maybe I'll end up as relaxed as my kitty Paddington looks on his new perch. Hope you have a great holiday weekend too!

Keep Calm Gallery

Here are a couple of new prints over at the Keep Calm Gallery that I thought were so cute. I don't think I have enough wall space to justify purchasing one of them! Oh well, they're still great to look at.

Fall Flickr Favorites

Now that it seems to be getting a bit cooler here in Alabama (which is odd for September) I decided that I'd share some of my favorite fall flicker finds. Enjoy!
