London Calling

I am obsessed with all things British so you know I'll be spending as much time as I can watching the Olympics. I can't believe Opening Ceremonies are tonight!


I love watching gymnastics and swimming. What are you favorite summer Olympic events?

From Canada to Ohio!

I have to introduce you to the coolest sisters. These three awesome gals drove all the way from Ontario, Canada to come to the sale. How awesome is that?


Janis, Kelly and Linda were seriously some of the coolest gals I've ever met. Linda and Janis 
go by the name "The Salvage Sistars" and they have a booth at Redman's Antique Barn in Port Perry, Ontario, where they sell some vintage and crafted items. And they all are just incredibly talented. On top of that they were SO much fun! I am so lucky that I get to meet the most amazing people!

Sock it to Me!

One of my favorite looks is socks with heels. I am seeing it everywhere. I wore socks with some of my most adored shoes for the barn sale. It's a cute, funky look and it amps up an outfit. 



This look was shown on the runway by Marc Jacobs in 2010. I love the old school look updated in a modern way.


I mean if Rihanna and Suri are doing it, it has to be awesome, right? Haha!


What do you think about socks with heels?

Say Cheese!

I am going to gush here for a second - I have the cutest girls on the planet! We just had some shots taken of Lila and Edie and I am beyond pleased with the outcome. Natalie Metzger of Matt&Nat Photography took the following pics and they seriously rock my socks. Love them!





I told you they were cute! Thanks Natalie, we adore the pictures!

Paint Your Own

My sweet, talented friend Amanda Trueman made this awesome Homegirl platter. Isn't it just fab?


She made it at a paint-your-own pottery place. I know these types of shops have been around forever, but I think they can be such a great destination on a rainy day. I love taking the girls. They always have so much fun picking out the piece they want to make. And it's so cool to watch them create their own masterpiece. It's truly a memory-making outing. And in the case of my platter, a really amazing gift!

Whooo me?

By now, you all know I have a thing for owls. My kids do, too (check out Lila's Halloween costume here). Recently I have developed a new owl crush... the macrame owl. Rarely seen, but much loved (by me, anyway!). Sometimes considered an endangered species. 

I saw this one at the J. Crew in SoHo and fell in love with it. 

I sold one at my sale and had to meet the person who bought it. Macrame owl lovers have to stick together!

I found this hilarious organization called Macrame Owl online. Their group is dedicated to saving, rehabilitating and reviving the Macrame Owl. Very tongue in cheek, of course. Check it out for a good laugh.

Do you have a certain "thing" you love or collect? What do you give a hoot about?!

Watch Out!

I have a slight obsession with watches. Nixon watches to be specific. Have you heard of Nixon? It's a brand that was started to create cool watches for the surf, skate and snow crowd. And apparently me. Because I LOVE them. I have a few and they are my absolute faves. I never used to wear a watch. Now I do because they are so freaking awesome and it's actually helped keep me on track (a major feat!).

Love it
Want it
Have it
