THOUGHT OF THE DAY : MAGIC.



"Make Magic Happen," an inspirational print from Handz. ($22) Reminder: the giveaway of two prints from this shop ends this evening, so make sure you sign up!

TEN IMAGES OF INSPIRATION : WINTER STYLE.



Since I'm sure the majority of my readers don't live in climates quite like Los Angeles (I'm still mostly wearing shorts and t-shirts down here), I thought I'd share some of my favorite cold-weather styles. I admit, I almost wish I could join in with the long coats, thick scarves, and cute knit sweaters.

GUEST POST : ASHLEY ORDING'S HOLIDAY WISH LIST.

Ashley Ording was one of my first close Internet friends (and one of the first I met in "real-life"), from back when I was 18-years-old. She works behind-the-scenes for Anthropologie, collects incredible vintage goods, and is one of the most stylish ladies I know. She put together this holiday wish list for my readers and I have to say, I'd love every single one of these things.


Crescendo Dot Flatware: My flatware situation is in need of an upgrade and this polka dot set is too cute.
Vintage 1970s Clutch: I love the muted colors of these cotton clutches, I'll take both please.


Vintage 'A' Brooch: I have a small collection of 'A' brooches and this one would make a perfect addition. Plus it will help me in my futile quest to be as cool as Laverne from Laverne & Shirley.
Mint Metal Wire PLant Stand: Now that I have more space for decorating I've been going hog wild with plant collecting, and to keep my cat from eating all of them I need a few cool plant stands like this mid-century inspired one in my favorite color.


'The Ten-Year Nap' by Meg Wolitzer:: I recently read Meg Wolitzer's book 'The Interestings' and I loved it so much that I want to read everything else she has written.
Vintage Cuddly Kittens Stationary: I don't really need to say why I like these notepads, because just look at them.


Kate Space Nisella Flats: I am completely obsessed with these fancy flats in the perfect shade of navy.
Angela Dalinger Collected Cups Painting: Angela Dalinger is one of my favorite artists right now and I think this print would look perfect in my living room.
