Wicker Park Bath House

Chicago Edition!

My Writing Elsewhere…

Mano Storage Jars

  • Maybe the finishing touches to my kitchen are among these? (I’m looking at you, Mano storage jars, you cute little things you.)

  • I came across this cute line of lingerie, and liked the retro look of it. Turns out, they’re trying to solve a… shall we say ‘delicate’ situation?

  • My desk is perfectly fine, but that doesn’t stop me from dreaming about redecorating with these.

  • Stop talking. (That print cracks me up, big time.)

    I used to live down the street from that beautiful bath house. Loved walking by it every day, loved dreaming about living in it even more. Sigh – you’d have to have the budget for giant art pieces to fill it, too.

      I’d love to take a tour of the inside, but I don’t want to waste the realtor’s time (because there’s no way we could actually purchase it). And yes, you would need a separate art budget!

    I know you use and partner with Method products. Could you please consider going over your cleaning schedule or how you keep your place so picture worthy? I would love it. Thanks.

      We don’t really have a strict schedule. We clean when the house looks messy (or before I take photos!).

    That house is lovely, but 10,000 square feet for one family just seems insane to me (as you said).

    Oh I love that place–lived in wicker park for ten years before moving to evanston a few years ago–it was always like a little mystery walking by that place. If you do get a tour, I’ll go with you! The realtor might need a little help putting some PR behind the sale. ;)

    Hi Nicole-

    Love the Chicago focus on your honor roll this week. Wicker Park {save for all the tear-downs} really has some great homes…but I’ll take my quiet far Northwest side without all the creatives. :)

    A few weeks back you linked a story about Richard Marx…I stumbled across this article, and given that you have a Chicago-theme going this week {and I am sure you love WBEZ as well}…Richard Marx takes on Rick Kogan.


    Hope the pop up was fun. My brother and I went to the one in the summer…good finds.

    the class map was really interesting. my county is service-trade, but the area where i live is a service area between two creative areas, which makes a lot of sense. thanks for the link!

    Dang, that place is awesome.

    I think I actually went in the Smilebooth directly after you at Vintage Bazaar on Friday!

    Thx for sharing the article on Chicago…I work in consumer targeting and geodemographic space and thought this was a great spin on the traditional white/blue collar, upscale/downscale conversation. Same data but less ‘surgical’ in it’s analysis.

    Posted to LinkedIn…you helped me look smarter :)
