...is Hound's fall/winter 2011 collection, and it's prettyyyy! The colors are perfect for this time of year. And I can't take my eyes off that dress.

This scene from one of my favorite movies has been on repeat lately. Such a sweet and adorable voice that Audrey Hepburn has. And the song is quite lovely, too.

One of my goals in life is to learn to play the piano, but my self-proclaimed tone-deaf has made me put this goal toward the bottom of my priority list. Hopefully someday I can build up the confidence to try, and possibly play something for y'all.

For now, I'll just let Hepburn's voice and guitar strumming carry you through the day. Thank you so much for all your warm birthday wishes, and happy Friday!

Moon River, wider than a mile,
I'm crossing you in style some day.
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker,
wherever you're going I'm going your way.
Two drifters off to see the world.
There's such a lot of world to see.
We're after the same rainbow's end--
waiting 'round the bend,
my huckleberry friend,
Moon River and me.

"Moon River" — music by Henry Cancini, lyrics by Johnny Mercer

twenty seven...

/ Tue, October 25, 2011


This photo was taken during my 5th birthday. (You can't really tell, but there's another candle behind the pink one.) It's one of a few that I have from the only birthday that I remember before coming to the states. We didn't have much back then, but I think my parents knew that we weren't going to stay in Vietnam much longer, so that's probably why they threw me such a memorable birthday. It's now one of my most cherished photos. I remember that yellow dress (my favorite at the time), those cute bangles that every little girl wanted to wear, all the pretty wrapping paper, and, oh my, that ridiculously gigantic pink bow clip on my head that I wore with no shame. Definitely a mark of the late 80s.

I'm 27 now, so to celebrate, I hope you all don't hold back on any sweets. Enjoy and have a great Tuesday!

...a clever, educational, and fun kerning game crafted by Mark MacKay for Method of Action. For all you type designers/lovers/fans who want to test your type kerning skills, or newbies who want to know what the heck kerning is, this game is it!

This game brings back so many memories. The days of drawing (and dreaming about) letter forms and numbers in type class during college certainly came rushing back.

I am in love with these bedding sets for kids from Unison. I'm sure they'd look just as charming in adult bedrooms.

Daydreaming about what life was like in the fifties while wearing one of these gorgeous dresses from Mrs. Pomeranz. A tasty little cocktail is also in the picture.

Some things I'm loving over at bookhou at home, a shop by John Booth and Arounna Khounnoraj based in Toronto. They also have a great brick and mortar shop, and a sweet blog.
