So, go celebrate the spectacularly bad economy by getting a screaming deal. I'm celebrating today too--that I have a wonderful new man in my life. He is a friendly and patient CPA that is about to get my taxes wrapped up for the year, and a new plan in place for next. Which leaves me feeling pretty snazzy!

What to do with all the mushroom birds floating around my house, drawers, studio etc. Via absolutely beautiful things.
Exquisite florals from Takashimaya NY via Little Pheasant.
Two purple and green weddings this weekend, and I'm celebrating...the last weekend with two weddings in the same day. New policy, new light feeling! Have a good one! --Lex

Votive Holders (that open as they go upward - straight cylinders won't work);
Wire Cutters (or heavy scissors).
1. Wrap your floral tape (or masking tape, although you'll probably have to sacrifice that votive holder) around the top of the votive holder. This is CRUCIAL for a happy votive-making experience - it helps keep the wire in place as you wrap it.
4. Attach the handle by simply wrapping the ends of a length of wire around opposite sides of the coil.

Rhubarb is one of my very favorite things on earth. Mine hasn't emerged from the ground yet, but as soon as it does, I can't wait to make this rhubarb and pistachio custard tart. Sounds like heaven. And the ever-so-practical Meg featured a "wedding graduate" this week that wrote a beautiful little essay about her wedding. All that are engaged--it's your homework to read this. It will remind you to "focus on the people", and I LOVE that she decided to just trust her instincts on decisions. When the first venue she walked into was the one, others questioned why she wasn't shopping around more. She said "We're having a party there, not buying the place".

Roses, caught in the only moment of sun we've had in a month. Orchids and faux bois. Trellis dreaming for my patio. Sweet boys, caught in the only moment they stopped fighting in a month. There's also been a lot of feasting on chocolate, but I'm not going to show the evidence of that.

Had a busy weekend with an event at the Columbia Tower (pictures of the awesome view coming soon) and Ray's Boathouse, dinner at Lark, a couple of fun evenings with friends, homemade pizza, a little gardening, met a great new client...life is good.
