Pretty Scarves

I love scarves.

I love weather that legitimately encourages scarf-wearing.

Do you love scarves? If you do, and you could buy one of these, which one would it be?

Knit Cowl with Bow

Gold Lace Wool Scarf

Puckered Salutation Scarf

Poppy Red Wrinkled Scarf

Ditsy Floral Scarf in ivory

Global Girlfriend Darling Dots Scarf

Dotted Scarf in coffee

Baffled Box Scarf

Lace-trim Floral Scarf

And now I must ask, what do you think of this last scarf? I think it is creative in theory; however, I am not sure that even the Anthropologie model who wears the scarf in the photoshoot is ultimately able to make a fashionable statement. I do think it deserves a post, though.

Knitted Glove Goodness

This year, I have seen so many crocheted and cable-knit gloves cropping up all over the place. I love the trend, and I even added a pair to my Christmas list. Texture is what I like about these gloves, and my favorites are the ones with the wrist strap and button detail.

Which do you like best?

Lacey, Lightweight Handwarmers with Grandpa Buttons

Beige fingerless gloves with a strap


Purple fingerless gloves

Fingerless Gloves with Crocheted Corsages

Long Gray Merino Fingerless Gloves

Isabelle Abramson

We all know we can't afford a $475.00 decorative bowl.

However, we can admire and sigh at the loveliness of Isabelle Abramson's hand-crafted porcelain works. She lives in Boston, works as a nurse by day, and teaches herself porcelain crafting by night. She makes each piece individually with her own hands, and some are even gilded with gold, silver, or platinum. I personally prefer her pure-white pieces most, though. Take a look.

For more of her work, take a look at her website, Isabelle Abramson Ceramics.

Coats & Jackets

Let's go on a pretend shopping trip! I really don't need any more coats, but cute and stylish fall and winter coats abound at this time of year, so let's just pretend, shall we?

Sunny yellow wool coat from

Toast of the Town coat from Nick & Mo

Babylon coat by Runaway Pony
Foliage Finder jacket by Anthropologie
The Fontaine Jacket by Little Houses
Wool Crowd Style Coat by The Simpson
Ada Coat by Little Houses
Harvested Honey coat by Anthropologie
Gumdrop Detective coat, at
This one tops the chart at $745.00, but we're pretending, right?

Any of these coats with one of these bags would be perfect, don't you think?

Well, I think that's enough shopping for one day. Perhaps we'll go shoe shopping next!
