Lovers of This American Life, prepare thyselves to send my good friend hate mail for her article in the Baffler!
Nothing you’ve ever done is wasted. (p.s. My friends and I used to make mail art too.)
12 fabulous toy bins you won’t mind tripping over! Because all of those toys need to go somewhere.
How to tie a scarf, according to Hermes (a.k.a. expensive trading cards for ladies).
I have a new favorite book about creating terrariums. And I also want to make 4000 more terrariums now.
As I was before, I’m still digging the salvaged window art of Emmy Star Brown.
Unbelievably beautiful office storage. Wow for your desk.
New, limited edition glasses from Warby Parker. I ordered a peachy pair for myself.
Yep, I’ve been a busy bee. Here’s more of my writing from around the internets.
The Josef Frank fabric really makes the room, don’t you think?
Would you fancy some fancy black soap?
Olympics time! We’re going for a gold medal.
Time to get crackin’ on that organized craft room of your dreams. Martha Stewart’s line of craft furniture is now in stores.

Nicole, I’m so excited to have read this post. I actually ordered those peachy, Warby Parker glasses yesterday. I’m so excited to get mine in.
Love this post.

Mine just arrived. I love them!

Man. They hammered you on the FB post about the Swedish Country look picture. BH&G should have featured the picture with the style board inspiration- that curtain fabric didn’t photograph well at all. So I stood up for you a bit…trolls and all. xo

Ah, thanks. People were really mixed about that room! The funniest comment was “I don’t get it. Is this what’s popular now?”
I think it’s a pretty room.

I love the Wes Anderson color palettes. Thanks for sharing!

The Times article was an interesting read, thanks for the link. I think the Josef Frank fabric is awesome, and I loved the Wes Anderson link–we were just watching The Life Aquatic last night.

[…] I’m loving these color palettes based off Wes Anderson movies from Whorange. The Rushmore palette is my favorite. Love the saturated colors. (via Making it Lovely) […]

LOVE this color palette.

That NYT article really got me thinking. People have so many different feelings about Pinterest and I always hear people talking about their Pinterest guilt…honestly, I don’t regret the time I spend on it all because I’ve gotten so many great ideas and laughs from it. The blogs I’ve started reading from Pinterest pins are so great too :)

Thanks for the link to the Times article – very interesting.

I’m sorry, but that whole TAL article is just a heaping pile of contrarian B.S. The author is essentially doing the same thing she so laboriously accuses TAL of doing- carefully curating the facts in order to promote a very narrow narrative. In this case her narrative seems to be, “…but but, here’s ANOTHER reason why This American Life is Stupid!” The fact that it sometimes features people who are middle class is not a valid reason for blanket dismissal. The whole thing was trollish, myopic, hypocritical, and gross.
Sorry Nicole! I don’t mean to trash your friend, but this made my blood boil (which was probably her point to some degree). I usually love your links- you have great taste is interwebs. The Pinterest article, in stark contract, I found to be well researched, fair, and an interesting read. Thanks for the link!
