So . . .

I can finally explain why things have been so quiet around here. In addition to being really busy finding and buying a house (yay!), I've been sleeping and eating for two. We are so excited to be pregnant and while the first trimester was a rough ride, it did teach me a lot about just letting myself scale back (the blog and the Etsy shop had to suffer, and that was that).

I've been debating starting a baby and crafts-for-children blog, but I'm still unsure if this is something I want to do publicly or at all. In the meantime, though, I thought I would explain why things have been so quiet around here! I've missed you!

Friday Finds: Night Owl Clock

I've featured clocks by Decoylab before (see here), but this owl one reminded me of all good things, like 1950s childrens books (you know how they have a limited color palette) and vintage wallpaper.

On a unrelated note, I just finished this book, Julia Child's memoir of her early married life in France. As a Francophile and total recipe hoarder, this book had so many things I loved: a sense of humor, a transport back to my own days as a nanny in Provence, and of course, food. I read this book after finishing Julie and Julia last year, which I also loved, and you can read more about here. I am so excited for the movie to come out. Julia Child plus Meryl Streep plus Amy Adams? What could be better?

On another unrelated note, I have lots of news to share in the coming weeks. It is oh-so-exciting, but I have to wait just a bit longer . . . check back soon!

Summer Sale in the Shop

I've decided to have a summer sale in the shop! For a limited time, all items in the shop are buy one, get one free (higher price prevails and shipping still applies). Simply wait for the revised Paypal invoice or, if you forget, I will refund you the difference. Happy shopping!

Update 6/8/09: This sale has now ended. Thanks!
