Dress For Dinner Napkins

Amazing. Laugh out loud good.


I have some exciting news to share…

After two years of hard work and much learning – I have officially completed graduate school and have MASTERS in media studies. I am excited.


I have a fantastic balcony at my apartment and have long been planning to get some plants and flowers out there. Now that I have spotted this amazing nautically inspired gardening set I think I am ready to get my hands dirty with soil. Nothing like good lookin’ tools to get inspired!

everyday is a celebration

These banter banners would be lovely for a party or just for everyday enjoyment. Why not live life surrounded by festive decorations!


now that we’ve found amazing placecard holders and napkin rings – how about throwing some fun coasters into the mix for pre-dinner drinks!

circa ceramics

Yesterday I spent the evening at International Center of Photography (before seeing Billy Elliott on Broadway). Yep, things get pretty fun when my parents come to visit, even when buried under 20 inches of snow. I always make time to peruse museum gift shops – the books, trinkets, totes, magnets, post cards – I always want them all. The ICP had a wonderful display of cups and mugs with the camera graphic (see top right) that caught my eye. I made note in my things to blog about notebook and when checking out circa ceramics today I was thrilled to see there are a variety of lovely images on these made to order mugs and bowls. Check out their etsy store here.
