elephant ceramics

Are you tired yet of all the reds, pinks and magentas of Valentine's day everywhere you go? Well, I'm just about over it. So, when I saw these beautiful blues they were like a breath of fresh air for my eyeballs!

Elephant ceramics are the designs of Michele Michaels from Brooklyn, NY. She works in great handmade organic shapes and adds the fabulous texture of linen to the clay.  Her tabletop items look like watercolors right out of a canvas masterpiece.

Don't you just love these? So unique.... TGIF my friends.

v-day: what to send, eat, make, wear...


It's kind of a drag that Valentine's Day falls on a Monday this year. Nevertheless, the hubs and I have decided to do our thing Saturday night and then on V-day, we are going on a family date night. :) Should be nice. (I feel bad sometimes going out to nice/exotic places sans kids. So, this time we'll try it out and hope that they don't complain about the undecipherable menu and try something other than the mac and cheese.)

Anyway... Don't you love the card above? Hilarious. Here are some more lovelies for that special day:

Delish! Flambé strawberry and all... (via)

WOW! How the... (find out here)

Child-friendly yum (via)

So now that you have food ideas. What will you wear?! I found these great outfits on All Things Lovely. Check it:
after-work hookup

fancy night out (LOVE that dress)

artsy chic

sexy for chillaxing at home

What will you be wearing? I know at least one of my friends would rather don this T:


But I think it's be funnier if it said ME + YOU = SAD. Hee hee....

high gloss magazine

There's a new magazine out that looks promising. It's called HIGHgloss. I'm not 100 percent sure, but I think it is online only. (Which is smart in this day and age of the dying print mag!) Anyway, I'd say it's a cross between your favorite style and fashion blogs and your favorite glossy read. Here's a peek:

What's in this issue...

Tips on key fashion must-haves

And if you are looking for Valentine's day stuff, they have some nice gift and entertaining ideas:

Check them out and tell me what you think... will the mag last? For the sake of the people involved, I do hope so. I, too, would love to quit my day job and follow my dreams...

cool things for babies

A few of my friends are either pregnant or just had their bundle of joy. I went back to some of my 'baby stuff' links and pulled up Sparkability. They have some pretty awesome baby things such as furniture, toys and just practical stuff that is everything but plain...

diaper changing station!! (I wish I had discovered this 5 years ago)

coat rack

Spaceframe sculpture kit

bObles - furniture you can play with  

Villa Sibi dollhouse! (Can I live here, please?)

There are so many adorable baby things out there. Makes me want to have another one of my own... ok, maybe not. ;)

Happy Monday! xo
