4. this verbena candle.

  3. We grew paperwhites in our window when we lived in our 388-sq-foot condo on Capitol Hill. I loved them.

  7. Hmm...is right. Very interesting. Who knows what is in store for us. Sometimes I think about how fast the past 10 years have gone. But then think about ALL that has gone on during those years, and then think, WOW!
    The mind so hard to figure. :)

  10. Oh yum, that candle looks absolutely amazing. I may be slightly obsessed with candles though! Personally, I think you can never have to many.

  11. First, your beautiful chocolate bar reminds me that I need to get myself down to Dandelion on Valencia soon. Second, I admire your plug-in technology. I'm still popping cassette tapes to listen to my Gregorian chants (while doing my calligraphy).

    Lovely place you've got here. Happy New Year!

  14. Beautiful, every little love you share with us. And I so adore those bulbs in the winter. They send out hope, somehow, that spring will return, really, some day :-)

    Have a great weekend! xx

  18. I read The Art of Fielding while I was on Christmas vacation and loved it! I read it so quickly, I practically drank it down, and wanted more!

  19. The first picture in particular makes me want to get a plant for my apartment. I always walk by florists' shops and feel tempted to buy a vase and a bouquet of flowers or a small plant, because then it would brighten up my studio apartment a little bit.

  20. Oh my God! I can't believe this! Madagascar is where i'm from :) i'm so proud that a pretty fancy chocolate gives a credit to our product and that you actually like it.
    Love from MDG.
