friday finds: carson too

Making a quilt has been on my to-do list since last year, but since that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen anytime soon I’ve been eying the selections from CarsonToo. They’ve got pretty pillows too!

entertaining in small spaces

I’m constantly amazed by small space dwellers and what they are able to do with just a little amount of room (one of my very favorites here). It would be enough of a challenge for me to live in a small space, let alone consider entertaining in it! But not so for Erin Feher and Danny Montoya, who pulled off a beautiful holiday dinner party in 507 square feet, to be exact (and that’s counting the bathtub!). Pretty inspiring, if you ask me.

his & hers

I love the concept and execution of theseĀ his & hers diptychs by Dave and Whitney.

scenes from the weekend

Some highlights from the weekend:
-a potluck brunch for the UNC-Kentucky basketball game. (I made orange rolls.)
-walking around looking at the beautiful holiday window displays around the city
-seeing Black Swan. (It was dark, but so so good. Natalie Portman was phenomenal.)
-catching up with a friend over a delicious lunch at Beretta
-Christmas shopping at Holiday Capsule. (It took some serious will power not to buy myself those feather earrings!)

Hope you had a great one!

friday finds: zuriick

Lovely leather shoes for men (and women!) from Zuriick… I want those ankle boots!
