homebodies & card catalogues

while i channel wrapped presents in the mail (outbound),
please go thou & be edified by the exceedingly inspired
card catalog that david john is putting together. & even
though i never make a list, if santa reads this he can run
out and get this book for me. thank you. (in the instant
gratification department, i must note that i don't need a
subscription to liz's excellent blog: i'm signed up. love.)


reading writing & wrapping

besides wanting to thank about six dozen people and send them all notes + get out christmas cards, i have a rather-too-long-in-waiting stack of gifts to wrap & (yes, it's funny, actually; why wait 'til this moment in december?) mail. all of this, honestly, might be easier to tackle if i didn't sort of expect to do a cracker-jack job on each one & have them be worthy of a small space in a bergdorf (sigh) window. anyhow. i'm going to read this (because i need to) and get back to all of you after at least a half-dozen of those gifts have been wrapped. and they won't need to be bergdorfy, they'll just need to be mailed. right? see you soon. happy wrapping to you, too.

sarah melling: pencils & paper

a dear friend of mine recently started a blog;
i think her work is divine. (& i can promise you
that she's divine, too. we completed quite a few
projects together, each one a joy -- thanks to her
good eye and keen skills.) sarah melling, so good
to see you here! you made me smile. coffee, soon?
