Laugh-out-loud funny.

This book made me laugh out loud. Many, many times. Dare I say, even more than Tina's book? I highly recommend it for a quick, fun read.

P.S. I just discovered The Concerns of Mindy Kaling, a site chock full of Mindy goodness. From the "Prelude" page:

Mindy Kaling is an actress, comedian, writer, producer and shopper. She can translate Latin and is an avid slow jogger who covers small amounts of distance over long periods of time.

Holiday sweets.

At my workplace, the holiday season means receiving many, many edible gift from businesses we deal with: cookies, chocolates, even a lunch of enough barbeque to feed a small city. As much as I enjoyed indulging in all of these treats, I can honestly say that my very favorite this holiday season was a box of incredibly delicious and decadent Champagne Truffles from Teuscher Chocolates. Only once before in my life have I had these truffles (as a "thank you" from a client at a prior job), as they are much too expensive for me to buy for myself. So I have been trying to make them last as long as possible, eating only one at a time. So far, so good; at this point more than half the box remains uneaten. Soon to be minus one more... typing this post is making me very hungry!

I had to post some photos here; the packaging is so pretty and colorful.

Farewell, Eva.

I only just found out this sad news. Zeisel was an incredible artist with a lasting impact. Her timeless yet modern designs will live on.

Over the past few years I've overloaded my computer's hard drive with hundreds and hundreds of screen shots of all sorts of things that fascinate me on the web: fashion, DIY, crafting, art, photography, textiles, jewelry, and on, and on... So I realized it was time for me to jump in and join Pinterest. Now not only can I save all my faves from around the internet in one place (without clogging up my Mac's memory), I can expand my inspiration by browsing the boards of other pinners.

I'd love to follow you on Pinterest... do me a favor and leave me a link in the comments on this post? You can follow me by clicking on the red Pinterest button on this or any of my other recent posts. Hope to "see" you there soon!
