I turned 30! Theo took me to Buenos Aires to celebrate! We did a lot of antiquing, flea-marketing, sightseeing, coffee-drinking and pastry-eating. My perfect kind-of trip. (Does my guy know me or what? Love you, babe!)
Hope everyone enjoyed their holidays! For me, the anticipation of Christmas is almost as wonderful as the event itself, and this year we made the most of it! We wentto shows, the ballet and we baked like crazy. Hopefully it will be enough to sustain us through the long winter!
I'm leaving up the decorations for a few more days, but my thoughts are already on next year's celebrations. I think I might try my hand at a homemade advent calendar, like this one from Country Living, December '05.
I can't believe it - I started this blog exactly a year ago! 200 posts later - I still love cataloging the things that inspire me. More than that - I love being inspired by all the great blogs I read on a daily basis (somehow, even when I don't have time to post here, I always manage a few minutes to click through to my favorites)!
Bedroom from ELLE Decoration, September '07. I should be sick of these glass lamps... but I'm not.
I can't believe it's been so long since my last post! But we've been so productive: We moved into our new house! I love this place, and I can't sleep at night for dreaming about the endless possibilities (Furniture arrangement! Fabrics! Paints!). For now it's a sea of boxes. And I'm so excited - there's a Farmers Marketdown the street. I'm definitely going this Saturday. (Photo CountryLiving.com)
This weekend we: had a birthday dinner (mine!), hit an antique market (where I found some great little iron birds for the wedding tables!), went to a graduation party (I believe I ate my weight in picnic food), and shopped for a new couch (no luck).
But wait! We had a whole extra day! So we also had time to: have drinks with friends, enjoy the amazing weather, watch several movies, and schedule the movers. Every weekend should be three days long!
Speaking of birthdays, Theo surprised me with this portrait on Friday. I admired it months ago in one of our local antique shops - and apparently he's had it hidden in our closet ever since! [Insert contented *sigh* here.]
