G’day!  I was out and about yesterday, and finally picked up a copy of Flea Market Style magazine, I love this publication!  A big thank you to the editors for the mention under favorite blogs!  “Best for Gals Who Love Power Tools”  Yep, that’s me!

New York + Nate

Friday, January 21st, 2011

I just got back from the Big Apple very  late last night.  I’ve never been to New York City in January, and it was cold baby cold!  But not unbearable, in fact it was rather brisk.  Do people still use that word?  Brisk?  Anyway, I do a ton of walking when in NYC, and this trip was no exception.  I was staying on the upper west side.  In past trips, I haven’t had a chance to really explore it all that much, so this was the perfect opportunity!  The Upper West Side felt very "You’ve Got Mail” (minus the gorgeous weather in the film) and understandably so, since most of the movie was shot there.   

I was scheduled for the afternoon taping with Nate, so I spent the earlier hours walking around the upper west side.  Loved it!  Here’s a few scenes from my long morning walk, forgive the cloudiness of some of these photos, the lens kept getting foggy from the morning drizzle!

Gettin’ Cozy

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

Oh, the weather outside is frightful . . . .  Well, actually, it’s not frightful at all, it’s rather delightful.  Shame on me for singing a holiday tune in October!   It’s the middle of fall y’all and getting a little chillier around here.  Time to bring out those knit scarves and cozy throw blankets to add a little style while still staying warm.

Today I’m talking about getting cozy with knits over at The Inspired Room in Melissa’s series 31 Days of Autumn Bliss.  I get to be Day 20, yippee that’s me!  C’mon over and say "Hi" why don’t ya, and take a peek at some of my favorite cozy knits this season.
