i heart my postman

from natasha & babelfish

bablefish is a great source of inspiration. there are always good posts about design, art, etc. on her blog. one day she lamented that she couldn't get anthropologie catalogues in the UK. thinking that was a minor tragedy i offered to send her a few. and a deal was struck. US to UK magazine/catalogue swapping. woo hoo. i was really excited b/c i had heard so much buzz buzz about habitat and now i get to see why w/ my own eyes. that catalogue is seriously swoon worthy. along w/ the mags she sent the most adorable wallet [which i am going to use for travelling!!] and mini colored pencils. [we all know how anything mini makes me dance around]. what's more - those came in a muji bag. when is their store opening in NY? [not fast enough]

the adorable bookmark, amazingly soft neck warmer [in the perfect color w/ ORANGE buttons!!] and delectable skein of hand spun yard came from natasha . just because. if you touch her yarn you will want to make things with it. it's so amazing. i can't get over the colors either.... you can get your own here .

pink stag

when i saw abigail's stag on whip up i gasped. and then i gasped again when she sent it to me....

oh i'm a lucky lucky girl.

i've been thinking a lot about martha's post on obsession and maria's post on alter egos . good food for fodder. i am wondering if we should all reveal our alter egos and obsessions....

happy thurs!

your posts are in tandem with my teaching; i'm doing an alter-ego projects with my 6th graders - we're in the middle of it -- based on trenton doyle hancock...you watch that art 21 series? good good stuff. (hm...it's my 6th grade again; they did the chair projects as well...!)

your postman is fantastic :) and your sweet goodies you received, even better!

sally said...

Sweet goodies for a sweet you.

Love the photo of you...the stag looks perfect.

Alter egos...ooh...I have many. =)

cally said...

Brilliant photo of you, great treat, fun post. But now my habitat catalogue surprise is spolied! oh well, I'll send you the summer one instead. I love insideout too, but it's too pricey for me to buy 2 copies so i'm glad she's got you covered there.

alter ego's eh, hmm, between that and your progression post (very absorbing) my little brain will be ticking away. ah well, if i can't sleep it's an excuse to read blogs into the wee small hours!

natasha said...

did you really only just get it now! woooooow! i have to say that sf might have the worst postal system ever. it is the one place that things never get to, or take a month to get there. anyway, i am glad it came, and i hope you liked it! a neckwarmer, just in time for summer!
