cone of shame.

Poor sweet Biscuit. He was drugged, had his manhood removed and forced to wear the dreaded cone of shame.

more birds.

As a few of you may know already from some previous posts - I love odd birds. Well - not real birds. Anyone who has seen a seagull eating vomit on the sidewalk could never love actual birds - they are disgusting.

Lucky for me - Potterybarn is on a HUGE bird kick right now. Everything they sell is now available in bird form - rugs and wall hangings, throw pillows and serving platters, sheets and towels and on and on - even weird big-footed bird sculptures. All these things are delightful - we even purchased the place mats and napkins for our new table. We did however pass on the bird candles - they looked too real. From less than a foot away it would appear that you were lighting a baby bird on fire.

By far the best thing available in bird form was the glass and porcelain scent diffuser (now out of stock online). I love the concept of a scent diffuser but am so done with the sticks and the reeds and blah blah. To me - it just screams "look over here - this corner of the house smells." I don't love obvious and do appreciate elegant (don't even get me started on those Glade Plug-In stink bombs). Nobody enjoys a stinky house and with the addition of dear Biscuit to our household (an 11 pound french gas machine) outside reinforcements were becoming necessary.

The bird is so delicate and pretty and lets off that great Potterybarn signature paperwhite scent. We now own two of them - one for the living room and one for the bathroom. I would like to think that paperwhite is now becoming the Elasticsandwich signature scent as well.

Chirping with delight.


spring forward!

I understand why daylights savings time makes me feel tired but why does it make me hungry?

Today was quite close to being a perfect Sunday. The only flaw? Being robbed of an hour!! And not just any hour - a Sunday hour and Sundays are already the shortest feeling day of the week.

One of my bestest friends Alisa is in town from New York and we had a day filled with mani/pedis, boozy brunch with friends topped off by a trip to Target and Costco. Plus - the weather was warm and sunny with a slight breeze. Perfection.

Just for fun we may even dye some Easter eggs tonight. Because if you are going to have hard boiled eggs - why not have them be swirled-dyed with a "marble magic" kit??

Hope y'all had a great weekend too.
