hello again

what better time to jump back in than on a cozy winter night?

i'll admit it, i spend a lot of time looking at wedding blogs. mostly because it's just one more way to occupy my time and daydream and fantasize.

i love the idea of this monogrammed banner. aside from the fact that it's gorgeous, don't you just want to wrap yourself up in it? it'd be nice to frame something like this, post-wedding, and hang it up at home...

pug love.

a pug pup is number two on my list of most wanted puppies.

this, however, is number one on my list of most wanted valentines.

what's that you ask? why yes, he IS wearing a heart-shaped clock necklace à la flava flav. you're welcome.

an admission:

i judge books by their covers. i'm a sucker for a beautifully-designed reprint, even when i already own the book.

currently hanging out in my amazon cart:

pride and prejudice, penguin classics

animal farm, plume

the stranger, vintage

the picture of dorian gray, penguin classics

and all of the penguin clothbound classics, for that matter.

for fun with vintage cover design, check out the pelican project:

an early valentine.

"the other part of the duet [in this movie] is this idea of youth... and young adulthood. i'm just fascinated by this idea that, you know, when people are young they can become anything... your story is not written when you're younger."

-blue valentine director derek cianfrance

blue valentine is premiering at sundance this year. michelle williams and ryan gosling (!!!) star as a young married couple. ATTRACTIVE.
