Things I’m Jonesin’ For : July

imageMy purse totally fell apart, and usually that would be tragic because it takes me forever to find a new purse that will actually stay the course with me for awhile. That said, I found this amazing purse at JCPenney from their new Lulu Guinness line. Classic and feminine with a cool bow, I love the whole retro look!  

I would love to have a wedding photo and perhaps even our vows put on a custom canvas from CafePress. But then again, I could put like nine million things on these canvasses, and we have I want all the art. All the time. I need a whole museum. Sigh.

image I’m really wanting some new sandals. I’ve had three pairs, “value priced” types, go bust on me in the past few weeks. Sigh. That said, Birkenstocks seem to be making a comeback and this pair fits my weekend bang-around-doing-errands style.

imageAdmittedly, more flats blew out too. and I know they are super-expensive, but perhaps that’s the lesson I need to learn….You get what You Pay For! I keep hearing about tieks , and recently a facebook friend said hers are amazing – especially for not being a flat person – so….being a flat person myself (they are my go-to travel shoe!) ….perhaps it’s time to take the plunge?

image In November, the husband and I are going to the Austin Formula 1 race for his fortieth birthday. (He’s turning 40!) How AWESOME would this dress be? It’s “vintage” (read: can’t buy it normally any more), but I adore the classic cut. Do you think it’s wearable day to day even though the print is kitschy?

image So, Alice, the bunny rabbit, has spent almost all of her time at our new casa outside. Huge change from living inside at the old house. That said, what are your thoughts on this palace for our Alice? It has a run but there’s no floor? I was considering securing a dog pan (from a crate) to insure she doesn’t sneak out?

image So, we’re married and I didn’t want china, but I did want nice wine glasses. I’ve coveted this entire set of glasses at Crate & Barrel for years now. If you know me well enough – wine and food lover that I am, for me to keep “in touch” with the same set of plates or glasses or even flatware for more than 5 minutes is an amazing feat. So when it comes to spending a few of our wedding gifts…this may be a major lifetime purchase.

image And finally, with summer sunsets left, how romantical would it be to pack up a picnic, head out for an evening of fried chicken, potato salad and some cheap wine. Okay, it doesn’t have to be cheap wine. It can be nice fantastic wine. and it can be macaroni and cheese in that basket too. Because i’m a trashy eater. and this week of dieting is killing me.
