wish list wednesday

What am I wishing for this Wednesday?

* To avoid sunburn.  Fingers crossed!

* One of these a-dorable house stamps.  If you think I wouldn't stamp everything that stood still with it, you are dead wrong.

* To be able to dedicate an entire day on pinterest.  Do you pin?

* These clever little iPhone app magnets.

* This cute, summery skirt.  JCrew makes them best!

What's your wish?

jessi talks TED

Hiya, friends!

I'm actually at the beach right now, but I couldn't resist sharing Jessi's TED talk.  You might remember I posted about her Weeks Worth of Undies challenge, and now you can hear it for yourself! 

After listening to her, maybe I should get that below-the-knee skirt I've been wishing for...

trash to treasure

I've always thought that reupholstering furniture would be a fabulous skill to possess.  I would like to think that I could identify cool pieces and be able to make them new-to-me, but I'm sure I would always end up with a jumbled mess that would be perfect for my local trash heap.

The uber-talented, always creative Jenny from Little Green Notebook has a great tutorial here and here for reupholstering a chair.  Are you brave enough to try it?  If so, let me know how it goes.  I'll still probably pay someone to do it.

I'm going to the beach next week, and I am most excited!  I hope to come back "brown as a nut" as my dad would say.

Have a great weekend, lovelies!

What am I wishing for this Wednesday?

* To be tall enough for a below-the-knee skirt.  I am loving this one...

* That I hadn't left you guys hanging last Wednesday.  Can you find it in your hearts to forgive me?

* This awesome necklace.  You can customize your colors, too!

* Relief from this stifling heat.  I was digging the cold, rainy London air.

* Sunshine next week for my beach trip.  Finally, traveling for pleasure!

TOMS is now making eyewear!  Now for every pair of TOMS eyewear you purchase, someone in need of vision correction will get the assistance they are unable to obtain or pay for.  Here's to a company that really cares!

I'm totally on board with TOMS shades.  Will you buy some?

if I can get my life together...

...I promise to post about my trips!

I hope you have wonderful plans this weekend that either involve air conditioning or a pool.  I plan to make this Brown Butter Banana Strawberry Bread, considering I have some ancient extra ripe bananas lying around.

Have a cool weekend!
