Books as Art

I just love these beautifully illustrated books by Penguin Threads releasing this Fall (the next endeavor from the creative folks that brought us the brilliant Penguin Classics series that line the shelves of Anthropologie). Artist Jillian Tamaki illustrated each cover before stitching the final design. The final covers are embossed to imitate the feel of the stitching. Simply stunning!

Pretty Spring Flowers

I'm getting pretty tired of all this rain but at least my garden is happy!

My Little Secret

Thanks to my friend Coquette, I came across this simple dress that'll be perfect for the changing seasons and my changing body. I've been keeping a very big secret for a while now and I guess it's time to share that I am almost 7 months pregnant with twins. I am beyond thrilled and am simply over the moon. I seriously thought this day would never come. After a very long journey, I'm excited to say we'll be welcoming a little boy and a girl sometime in the near future. The official due date is June 14th but twins have a way of arriving several weeks early. I've been in serious nesting mode with the house and running errands so it's nice to have a little pick-me-up all for me coming my way in the mail. Cheers to new adventures!

I've been on a rampage nesting and decorating lately and this mirror is still on my obsession list. Ever since I worked with Ron & Jaime on their book, High Style, several years ago I've wanted to add this mirror to my collection. It would be perfect above my fireplace.

Counting Sheep

If only I were in New York this weekend I would hoof it down to Times Square to see these darling paper sheep!

They're part of an installation by the Time Square Alliance Public Art Program. Spotted on Elle Decor.
