We’re snowed in under a blanket of beautiful white, well more like several blankets, so I’m lacing up my huge stormtrooper boots and heading outside for a little fun in winter wonderland. It’s nearly 3pm, time to go have some fun, it is or first snow… I’ll be back tomorrow with the next trend report: Beachy Keen, a look at how to bring a little California cool into your home. It’s finally ready, it took me forever!
If you’re looking for links, there are plenty of great blogs that I’ve added in the left column, which I’ve categorized to make things easier. (Those added over the past few days are clearly marked *.) Oh, and don’t miss Rachel’s Reds Report, she’s a color Queen from Maryland and is willing to take any questions you may have, so don’t be shy.
Enjoy your day… See you tomorrow!
Apartment Therapy welcomes their latest blog, The Nursery… It’s the cutest site and a great resource for designers, parents-to-be, friends of parents-to-be, and everyone, really. Who doesn’t love pastels, softies, and adorableness? Who won’t be invited to at least one baby shower this year? And you never know, that new craving for saltines could be trying to tell you something… Anyway, a huge congrats are in order to Maxwell and the whole AT team!

I don’t mean arrived as in big success, fame, riches, power, etc. I’m talking about an affair of the heart and mind.

I’ve known about the new title soon to be released by Lotta Jansdotter, Simple Sewing: Patterns and How-To for 24 Fresh and Easy Projects (Hardcover) for some time now, but had no clue Lotta blogged until I heard it from my friend Anh-Minh. Isn’t that a great bit of information to stumble upon? I thought so.
You have to check out Lotta’s blog, and don’t forget to pre-order her new book at Amazon for $16. It releases March 1st, and I can’t wait to try some of the projects inside. I’m also excited to see the photos inside since her photographer is Meiko Arquillos who is responsible for some beautiful work for ReadyMade magazine and Chronicle Books. Yeah!
