I am enamored with Daphne Kladis’ aesthetic.

Meyer Lemon Tart


 

My friend Barbara made this Lemon Tart by Claire Saffitz yesterday and I can’t stop thinking about it. It was the most delicious desert I have ever had. 

Family Travel Duffel


I am trying to figure out if this Family Travel Duffel is genius or silly. A duffel with multiple compartments, one for each family member.

This article on What Makes People Look Like Their Pets? by Jesse Bering made me chuckle.

Custom Face Stickers


I love idea of making custom face stickers.

What a fun gift: It looks like a book but it’s in fact a Scrabble Board Game.

Things Are Shockingly Possible

Big fan of Adam J.K’s Unsolicited Advice 2022 Weekly Planner and Journal. The cover alone is making me want to buy it.

The Art of Disappearing

Really enjoying it starting 1:19.

Andrew Moore

I had the pleasure to meet the impressively talented photographer Andrew Moore in a dogpark last week. As a lover of space, architecture and seeing beauty in the mundane, his photography makes my heart sing.

It never ceases to amaze me how many incredibly talented, creative humans live in NYC. Also, dogs are friend-making machines.

10 of My Favorite Things of 2021

These are things I lovingly own:


My all-time favorite object in my house at the moment is this acorn vase.



Zena Swiss Vegetable Peeler. It might not look impressive, but let me tell you, this thing WORKS!



This LED light that can hold a charge for about 10h. I use it as a desk lamp and nightstand light. (My kids are each getting one for Christmas)



The Vava short-throw home theater projector has changed our life. I honestly don’t know why I ever need to set foot into a theater again. It’s expensive but oh-so-worth-it!



This acrylic bird feeder has brought endless hours of delight to both me and my cat. (I am looking at a BlueJay in it while I am typing this.)



I have had this cat litter box for a few years but have a new found appreciation for it now that I have adopted a dog and she can’t get to the cat’s poop. It’s such a sculptural and beautiful design, I don’t mind it sitting in the corner of my living room.


One Line a Day: A Five-Year Memory Book. I write a sentence or two every night, and in a year I can see where I was the year prior and travel in time every night. Fun!


This boldly patterned wool scarf by See Design. (I also own and love this toiletry bag.)



This Ginkgo Leaf Shaped Dog Blanket/Bed. (That’s my rescue pup. I adopted her 3 weeks ago. I love her.)



Onsen bath towels make me happy. I ilearned about them because they sponsored my blog years back. I was curious and ordered a bunch of towels and loved them so much I replaced ALL of my towels in my house. I swear by the gray Bath Towel. My kids approve of them too.

I Want To Live

“I want to live
the rest of my life,
however long or short,
with as much sweetness
as I can decently manage,
loving all the people I love,
and doing as much as I can
of the work I still have to do.
I am going to write fire
until it comes out of my ears,
my eyes, my noseholes-everywhere.
Until it’s every breath I breathe.
I’m going to go out like a fucking meteor!”
– Audre Lourde

Peculiar Looking Candles

Enamored with these peculiar looking candles by Piera Bochner. Brooklyn made!

Lunch Bag

I recently discovered The Organic Company and I love so many of their products. This is one of them.

Spaghetti Brain

“Men are like waffles because they are better able to compartmentalize. They have little waffle squares which they pour syrupey information into. And each square can contain a different subject. Making it much easier for men to think of one thing and one thing only at a time.

Women on the other hand are spaghetti brains. Meaning all of the noodles of information touch each other. So while thinking of work, a woman can be thinking of the errands she has to run and what she’ll have for dinner and a myriad of other topics.”

Yes, this is a ridiculous simplification but it made me chuckle. Men are like Waffles, Women are like Spaghetti, by Bill and Pam Farrel
