Things I'm crushing on right this minute

  • Little wooden chair we picked up at an estate sale a few weeks ago, $45. It's a little creaky but I think Doug can tighten the joints. Once I saw the seat cushion with the koi I had to have it.
  • Malabrigo Organic Cotton - I ordered two sweaters worth from Yarnzilla (it was on sale). I'm making the Ophelia cardigan from A Mingled Yarn, that's the very beginning of it. This colorway is Plata and it's gray with faint blue undertones. It was a little stiff but as I'm knitting with it it's softening up a bit.
  • Savage Love podcasts, he's kind of fabulous. However be warned, he is not for the faint of heart. Or ears.
  • Stitcher Radio app for my iPhone, I can listen to NPR shows like Car Talk, Fresh Air, etc. while I water the garden and get eaten by mosquitoes. If Doug could marry this app he would, mainly because he can listen to NBC Nightly News, 60 Minutes and Face the Nation.
  • Raspberry Buttermilk Cake from Smitten Kitchen via Gourmet, seriously I made this last weekend and it was gone almost instantly. And there was only two of us.
  • Posie Gets Cozy, I've been a blog stalker of hers for awhile but her posts about her garden and the accompanying pictures make me want to move to Portland immediately.
  • Handknit socks from my super-fabulous friend Lynsey. She's out of town for awhile and I miss her lots. She made these socks in honor of me learning how to ride a bike! (more about that later).

Beautiful Chair. don't you just love finding things like that that you can fix up??

I actually bought the Mexican Chocolate at a Mexican bakery in Houston, but I have seen it in some grocery stores. Try Wal-Mart, believe it or not.
