zig zag day

take a zig zag day

no plans.
no cell.
just go...
see where it takes you.

After an afternoon of viewing the latest + greatest in interior design 
at the Ohio Design Centre's Fall Market Day, 
what inspired me most came from NY Designer Lori Weitzner.
Her presentation "The Preservation of Passion" reminds
us to always be on a quest for new resources + inspiration,
and open ourselves to opportunity.

missoni at target...going going gone!

My Missoni purchases this morning.

It's been on my calendar for weeks....I even had my phone alarm set to remind myself...
Missoni for Target premieres September 13!
As you read this the stores are pretty much picked over.
Target's web site crashed.
I thought I was so smart arriving at 9:15.
I walked in to a view of mostly empty racks with a dangling skirt, 
few silky tops and an extra large shift dress.
So I browse through the store hoping to secure some home goods.
Still very picked over but I find a few things.
Then score!
My friend sends me a text across the store
that the dressing rooms are full of early shopper rejects!

I did pretty well...
Now I have to figure what I can allow myself to keep.

remembering september 11

My holiday card from 2001, post September 11.

God Bless America, land that I love.
stand beside her and guide her
through the night with the light from above.
from the mountains to the prairies to the oceans white with foam.
God Bless America, my home sweet home.
