pictures on II
you might recall pictures on, the baby quilt that the girls and i made for our friend rachel’s little one (eloise, now 8 or so months and the cutest little thing you ever did see!) this reinvigoration of an old family tradition of mine was a pretty exciting endeavor into embroidery for all of us, and a crash course in quilting for christine and i! well, we just completed our second blanket...
piyump hug– good band name
pretty damned lucky.
it’s father’s day, and as i sit here listening to the Whiskey Shivers, drinking a morning cup of coffee, i can’t help but think how damned lucky Billy and I are to have such amazing fathers. we’re two for two when there’s no guarantee that you’ll get a dad worth his salts. when i think of my dad i think of his deep and sincere sense of empathy. i think of...

sonofasailorblog: what we have here is a combination of two things: a benefit for an awesome lady and an event that you wouldn’t want to miss even if it wasn’t for an amazing cause! natalie davis over at tool & tack describes her friend the best, saying “Colleen Sommers is a friend, artist, baker, and…
sonofasailorblog: i’ve mentioned many times over the last year that william & i are getting married. well, we got married! there was lots of planning, lots of DIY, and it was all very exciting! march 31 was the date that it all went down, and we wanted to share a few photos of the day. first, though, we want to give a huge shout out to our photographer, Alisa Ferris. she was absolutely...

sonofasailorblog: i’ve wanted bentwood chairs for years. years! but, apparently, so has everyone else. unable to find them for less than $40 a piece, i became resigned that i might not be able to procure a pair for myself…at least until becoming a bit more financially sound! until, that is, i was driving around with my friend mary, and found two slightly distressed caned versions on the curb...

sonofasailorblog: alright. prepare yourself for a bit of (awesome) silliness. last weekend notes the first annual Steaksgiving. to my knowledge, this holiday was invented at our wedding by two friends, Josh Cohen of San Francisco and Casey Scott of Austin. April 28 marked the day that people in both cities…
domino is back! (mostly)
it was a serious loss to anyone who loved print and interior design. (me!) when domino folded, we cried a little on the inside! but now it is back, at least seasonally, and curbed has a peek at the mag that hit the newsstands yesterday. well, for those of us who weren’t lucky enough to be around a few hot spots where it appeared early… so, it’s only seasonal now, and punches...
yes, i’m in love with billy. but i am also totally in love with this amazing portrait that my good friend miranda mueller did for billy and i for our wedding! it is absolutely awesome, and we can’t wait to get it framed! what a multi-talented woman! we miss her since she’s moved up to oregon with her hubs, but we keep tabs on her via her blog Pocket Pause. careful,...
