generally speaking...

Okay here is the last one. It's not so much a tour but a clear window into the necessities that make me a person.

Coffee - I love coffee... good coffee. Most of my favorites can't be found here but reside on the lovely streets of Commercial Drive in Vancouver... so I will settle for Starbucks. Beans or the Tassimo version. I love my tassimo and will make most anything in it so those pods are great too. Tim GC's are also good... I am known to frequent the drive through for a cup of black coffee and two apple tim bits for my little bits.
I collect mugs.. I LOVE mugs. Right now Starbucks has a gorgeous Canada Mug...

Red Wine - I like.

Scrapbooking - A pleasurable hobby of mine so gift certs to My Scrap Shoppe are a great thing for me.

Pampering - I belive that every woman needs severe pampering and I am in need. Charity Faye would be a lovely spot to spend several hours having body scrubs, rubs, pedi's, and facials... ahhhhhhhh

Itunes - I love filing my ipod with good songs to listen to while I cook, bake and run.

That's me in a nutshell. I will be leaving the internet world for the 10 days starting the 15th (Tuesday). You can reach me via email. I will check in once every day.
I have been feeling like a big pile of garbage lately and it's not going to go away unless I start doing something about it. I want to prepare for this next year by going through myself and filling me with good things... so I need a break from the distraction that keeps me from pressing in and getting rid of the garbage. I'll be back... I'm excited to start this next chapter in my life.
I'll be back.. better than I was before. Loves!

enter the bedroom...

not what you are thinking.. we are continuing to tour my house in hopes of you getting to know me better. my bedroom is boring. the contents of my closet are boring. mostly black. a bit of grey and purple and one white shirt.
i own 26 cardigans (not all of them are worn often). i LOVE cardigans.
here is what's missing:

This gorgous clear Umbra Partridge Jewlerry tree. It would look great on my dresser and would add a practical element to my life. All my jewlerry lays crumpled in a box in my drawer. Those birds are soooooooooooo cute.

Gift Certs:
Lets face it every girl loves a good gift certificate. You can buy them for me here:
RW & Co.
ugg that's all I can think of. Wish I lived somewhere with cooler stores.
Ikea - for online catalog ordering
Target - for the next time I go south.

Urban Barn
We need nice alarm clocks.. cute ones. something retro and round.

Wanna buy a gift and make a difference. TOM'S SHOES seriously. Buy a pair and they give a pair to a needy person in a third world country. Amazing company. Cute Shoes. I would take them in grey and they have a this one is GORGEOUS. Size 6.5

So many cute things. Now get out of my bedroom!

So I am turning 30 in 29 days!!!!! In lieu of that I declare this month all about me. Okay what the heck I declare this year one for ME!
I am starting a new series. Things I want. I will tour you around my house and give you ideas on what to buy me (for those who are asking)
Take a look around my kitchen. These are the things missing.

Recipe book holder like this one by Umbra Prop Cookbook Stand

Here are the top three cookbooks missing from my home:
1.) The Mennonite Treasurey

2.) The Bon Appetit Fast Easy Fresh Cookbook

3.) Real food for healthy kids

These are by far the cutest aprons i have ever laid my eyes on. Thank you

Good Grips locking tongs like my favorite chef Crystal owns... they look so nice and since she says she has to have them.. so do I.

and last but not least I have always wanted one of THESE!!!!!
