Glimpses of my week –

      This week was more interesting than most — we spent Christmas in Tulsa and friends were in town for the holidays. Photos, from top left: Walt reading on his new Kindle (he loves that thing); Southwest actually has good customer service and we had zero delays. Also? Peanuts are still free. – Eric, in town from Ann Arbor, shares a beer with Walt – Megan, in town from Pittsburgh, got waffles with me – a wonderful waffle breakfast from 24 Diner (that I’d been craving all week) – the crew at the Draughthouse – “Designer… de Better!” from the OPI Muppet collection (pardon the messy!).

      Christmas in Tulsa

      Iconic Photos created in Legos – a little old, but it still tickles my fancy.
      Vintage Tesco’s Supermarket – it’s pretty awesome looking at all of this vintage packaging.
      30 Things to Stop Doing to Yourself – there’s something for everyone.
      Daft Punk helmets DIY – my clients Rachelle and Stephen were Daft Punk for Halloween. This is an amazing set of tutorials on how to make Daft Punk helmets and gloves.

      Let’s be materialistic for a moment. What were some of your favorite items you got for the holidays? Mine is a tie between my husband getting me a Bluray copy of Pride and Prejudice (1995 BBC mini-series with Colin Firth) which has apparently been remastered for much better video quality than my DVDs, and a Francesca Woodman art book from my mother-in-law. Did you receive anything you absolutely loved?



      Oh! We are wearing matching nailpolish! I’ve got Designer… De Better on my nails, with a few layers of Rainbow Connection over it on my toes. (My secret super sparkly pedicure!)

      I love it too!

      I think I have to find more Muppets Collection polish. I’m loving this color on you & I may have to go find it somewhere! Also – mmm breakfast food. Mmm beer. And lastly – LOVING the personal/life pics. Seriously. seriously. SERIOUSLY. Love!

      That nail polish is amazing! I have a gold by American Apparel, but it’s slightly darker. That shade is kind of just right. :)

      It’s actually a silver foil with tinytinytiny flecks of red/copper in it. I love it. The entire Muppet collection is amazing.
