This year we're heading to the beach for Thanksgiving week. Lots of time to relax and be with the family and, of course, EAT. We usually celebrate at our house, so this year I'm thinking up festive table settings we can do out at the beach. I love the images of the adult & kids tables best.

I've been searching for the perfect occasion to set up one of these backdrops at a party. I'm guessing it'll have to wait until Rubys 6th birthday, but I'm loving the idea of the constant backdrop, some sort of fabulous fabric. It's an old Martha idea - an oldie but a goodie! image by Marissa Kaiser

The first house I can remember living in was Two Oak Ave., an enclave of happy hippie couples and kids all living close by, all surrounded by tall redwoods, veggie gardens and lush greenery. Inside our house was much like the outside, clusters of palms and ficus sat on colorful Moroccan rugs, potted herbs lined window sills and an entire glass shelf/atrium area in my parents' bedroom was dedicated to ferns. We only lived there until I was 5, but I'm sure it played a part in my love for plants in the house (lots of them!). This pic looks to me like a modern day Two Oak Ave. image Miguel Flores-Vianna

It's getting closer....
I'm so giddy! I've been designing like crazy, the Whish collection includes: invitations, announcements, cards, labels, a kids line, a holiday line, and posters & calendars (to come!). I'm so passionate/excited/hopeful about this business that I can't help but grin ear to ear when I think about it. **I'm looking for a web designer
with e-commerce expertise, so if anyone has some helpful hints, please share!**
People ask Bakerella why she has so many spices in her living room, then she tells them to get a little closer. S A N D! I am in complete awe of this. This takes sand collecting to a whole new level and totally puts my piddly sand-filled ziploc souvenir bags to shame. Bravo, Bakerella, bravo.

Saturday was spent wandering around Fillmore Street with my girlfriends and hot chai latte's in hand. We popped in the ever-amazing Nest (picture Indian textiles and Parisian chic) and I can't get these gorgeous hanging lights out of my mind - are they not SO good??

I'm such a warm-weather-loving kind of gal, but lately I'm looking for any reason in the world to buy these classic Hunter boots. With jeans or over some cozy gray tights, they're just cool. Emily (who looks crazy adorable in everything) wears them with a short dress and manages to pull it off. Maybe Santa will leave these under the tree...

I am a huge fan of bright, open living spaces, and I also think every kitchen needs an island. An island is like a hub for everything, especially since people usually flock to the kitchen, the island is like home base. I love this floorplan above, how the island is central and leads right into the living room. Image via Living Etc.
