I haven’t really had a lot of time to blog since Aaron came home from the hospital, but here are some things I’ve been reading/seeing/loving lately:


This post-opp honesty from the sweetest husband ever. (For the record, my husband mostly just slept his way through recovery and didn’t have much to say. Should have used the opportunity to pump him for information.)


This article from Psychology Today discussing how over-parenting makes for wimpy, anxiety-ridden children who can’t cope with life. Playing into said parents’ fears, who will now be overly paranoid ABOUT being overly paranoid, thereupon playing into the author’s hypothesis and solidifying the need for his own profession to continue to exist. Now there’s a head trip.


Lustworthy photos from Texas’ largest, most wonderful antiques fairs – the only the only – RoundTop.

This eensy-weensy copywriting project I did that actually got used by our client! (Hooray!) NamasDays = my fun little pun.Screen Shot 2013-09-10 at 8.52.14 PM

I recently signed up for a blogger scarf swap hosted by Meredith at The Tichenor Family blog, which has become super dangerous due to all the excessive online scarf shopping I’ve been doing for my swap partner.

A few favorites from

These Jack-o-lanterns that don’t involve pumpkin goo. For the win. Will definitely be following the tutorial come October.lum

And finally, this irresistible craft project. No, not the chevron dresser – the lamp. We have a Specs equivalent here in town that carries specialty beers and wines, and they’ve had that giant pink bottle concoction for quite some time. And for just as long, I’ve eyed it, wanting it for the pretty bottle while Aaron fusses at me that we’re not going to pay $13 for disgusting beer. Well, maybe not for disgusting beer, but $13 for a lamp is pretty good, yes?

  1. Greetings from your scarf swap partner!! Did you get my email?? I haven’t heard back, so I just wanted to make sure I sent it to the right address. I just realized we are supposed to have our scarves mailed by TOMORROW – eek! Can you email me your address? xoxo Frances
