warm up

As the chill gets harder to break, I continue my blanket/throw search. I still haven't been able to make a commitment (quality v. price v. my-unwillingness-to-spend-over-$100-for-a-throw). I'ld rather not succumb to the usual suspects, but when it comes to price, it's hard to avoid. I'm keeping my eye out on these lovelies, maybe there is a sale in their future?

These MacAusland blankets are really at the top of my list. They're quite a bit cheaper if you buy from them directly, as I learned from Katy Elliott's great blog. And nothing helps me make a decision like a testimonial.

Ah, blanket season. I love the idea of these map quilts by Haptic Lab, especially as a baby blanket.

The talented folks at McSweeney's have published a nice book chronicling the quarterlies 12 years of super book design. If you haven't seen their books, I advise you order a subscription.

It can be purchased through Chronicle Books. Here are excerpts from the book over at Sight Unseen. Here is a nice little vid too.

best cinnamon roll ever


While in Kansas City for a bit of a mini vacation during the Fourth, we ate at a great breakfast joint in the Crossroads District/Crown Center area, You Say Tomato. The perfect cinnamon roll, a warm up with icing added.

our garden


Gratuitous garden shots. The pollen has been kicking my ass, as it does every year, but I can still enjoy the garden and all it's new blooms.

There's D, in all his garden glory.


I bought this bakers twine from Divine Twine, in yellow, for Sun's Valentine's Day party favors. I was wondering how else I would use this large spool of left over twine. Well, of course, thanks to D who used it to tie up some homegrown oregano for drying, so cute!

harlem @ the riot room


Caught Harlem at the Riot Room Friday night, and they did not disappoint. Wasn't really sure what to expect from the post Hurricane scene, but it was good for people watching (unfortunately didn't grab a good shot of the dude in short shorts and a fanny pack).


Nice, big marching band kick drum? Okay.


We were content.

I know it's not even summer yet, but these slim pants from Opening Ceremony's Fall/Winter lookbook are amazing. So simple, but it's all about that crease and taper. Please send me a pair.

the art of the novella


d-rolf brought these great little books back from the AWP Conference, and I was instantly smitten (always smitten with a "series" of anything). Melville House Publishing has created this series of books, The Art of the Novella, and now I want to collect them all. Wish me luck! You can purchase them from their webby.

big type book

Oh, what a great little book! Some notes from the poster, "Types in the cases of William M. Cheney Los Angeles, was published by Dawson's Book Shop and printed by Cheney in 1961 in an edition of 139 copies. It is a great example of the fine printing, coupled with dry humor for which Cheney was well known." View more shots at typesticke flickr page.

A bit of a late post, Sewn From the Soul by Street Etiquette. A beautiful editorial project of "Style and History" for Black History Month. Nice to see some dudes in the style blog game. They also posted a video of the shoot.
