Choose One

I love ornaments especially because you don't have to choose just one.

Follow Up

Hope you ate too much & enjoyed family and friends. That's what it's all about.

I absolutely adore this mirror. Not only does it make me think of the ocean, but now I'm also craving a dozen blue point accompanied by a glass of champagne and some mignonette sauce!

Get Out Your Crayons!

I love this wallpaper from Land of Nod. It would be so fun to tell your kids to go and draw on the wall!

Moving On

Forget about the table. What am I going to wear on Thanksgiving?

What is Thanksgiving without a kids' table? It's always so much more fun than the adult one.

On our
adventure last week we stopped into a great shop, Filthy Gorgeous, and found a perfect piece to complete the update of Rebel's master bedroom. Rather than use an architectural fragment, an extra large sea fan similar to the one above looks just right with the shell prints she has hung. Perfect.

Speaking of Soups

Rebel makes the Nordstrom Tomato Basil Soup and it is fantastic. I love tomato soup but I've never known it to have such depth as this recipe does. She says, "If you cook, this recipe is so easy and delicious. If you don't cook, this recipe is so easy and delicious." A large batch recipe is available here, for a family size version pick up the Nordstrom Flavors or just stop into the cafe after a morning of shopping.

I just love this kitchen. The floors, the tile, that table! It's like a dream. In it I can see me patiently and lovingly putting together a soup at the range while the children quietly work on homework at the table, feeling loved and nurtured.

My family went to the
California Academy of Sciences on Saturday. It was a beautiful, wet, foggy day in SF and the academy didn't disappoint. If you are in SF, it's a must see.

An Adventure

We are off on an adventure tomorrow. Bright and early we'll head out to the San Francisco Flower Market to finalize our plans for a boutique we are participating in at the end of the month. Not sure what the day will bring as I have never been before but I am certain that it will include a stop at Peet's (of course) and then we'll both be sporting our newly created coffee sweaters.

Naturally Beautiful

Another simple, yet beautiful option for that Thanksgiving table, naturally shed pheasant feathers. Who'd have thought? Domino, of course.

In A Quandry

Rebel and I got together this afternoon to do some work and we really did get quite a bit accomplished but posting items to our Etsy shop can be so hard to do.

Preparing this glassware for photographing, we were each amazed at the luck of finding a full set of platinum rimmed vintage glasses. Made in France, no less. And now we are going to sell them?! Oh the difficulties of the business we've chosen!
