After work cocktails?

Here? Maybe with some freshly caught seafood? 

The Rock Restaurant off the coast of Zanzibar. Swim, walk or sail your way in. Could anything sound more perfect right now?

Washi Tape Interiors

I'm already a big fan of these little rolls of Japanese masking tape. In addition to playing a role in some of our wedding paper collateral, they make gift wrapping a breeze (and cute) and make literally taping pictures or notes to the wall a viable option outside of a dorm room.

But now there's this - and I need it. Giant rolls of washi for your walls. You can layer them, you can make stripes or plaids or whatever else you can imagine. Slap it on the wall and peel it off and throw it away when you're done. Amazing.

Unfortunately this partnership between Japanese furniture and wallpaper purveyors Sincol and washi tape/stationary co. MT is only available in Japan. A buying trip might be in order.

New Life Plan

Leave my job and spend my time making an absurd variety of boozy popsicles and sell them on the street corner out of this bike trailer.

From Ox and Monkey available on Poppytalk right now. I will need to trick it out with a serious cooler. I will also need a bicycle.

Etsy find

I'm really fond of these layered wire and bead earrings and necklaces from Octavia Bloom on Etsy. Wouldn't they make lovely bridesmaids gifts?

Summer Vacation

I know it's been a while - quite a while - but you see, it's summer time, which means there have been barbeques to tend to, drinks on sunny patios, impromptu trips to the beach and other things that have made spending evenings in front of a monitor a little less than appealing. 

The blog will be back - perhaps without the obsessive regularity it once had, but I've got a giant stockpile of things to share all filed away in the midst of busy days at work and busier evenings out with friends. 

There has also been plenty of travel; Columbus, New York (twice!), LA and several drives to a Delaware beach or two. I've been on roller coasters, eaten plenty of corn on the cob and met a real princess- er, duchess. I've also made a load of boozy cupcakes and even boozier popsicles, taken the 3 a.m. train home and celebrated a very big graduation.

Tomorrow I leave for a week in Atlanta, so please share your suggestions. I hope your summer has unfolded similarly to mine - with a lot more emphasis on living life than documenting it!

I think these pictures can tell the rest of the story - much love!
