French cooking

A few weeks ago I made a fancy (for us, anyway) French dinner to celebrate Jennifer's promotion at work. I guerilla-guest-posted on her blog, Perskettios, while she was at work. See the post here.

Autumn clothes

Maybe it's the gross, rainy weather we've been having lately, but I've been craving cozy, sturdy
autumn clothes all this week. There's a few things in particular I have my eye on...

I'm not always a cape person, but this one has such a chic, french shape. I do wish it was wool rather than cotton, but I'm still tempted by the cute, off-center collar and buttons.Cape of Good Hope at ModCloth.

Now, I've been loving these shoes since last fall, I believe. They're on sale and still in my size...the only question is black or clay?

Our Heroine by Seychelles.

High-waisted sailor pants! Count me in!
Semiconductor pants from ModCloth.

Cozy boyfriend sweaters in pretty shades! With a teensy bit of cashmere!

Which watch?

I want a pocket-watch necklace. Which one is the best??? (all from

I think this is my favorite - the Old and New Pocket Watch Necklace. I love the filigree!

I think this one's a close second, though.

I like that the leaves kind of look like wings. Fresh Picked Time Clock necklace.

Not a necklace, but how cute is this pin? There's also a necklace version on fredflare.

But she's carrying a CASTLE PURSE. LOVE IT.

Also, guess who has tickets to a midnight showing of HP for next Tuesday? Oh yeah, that's me!!!

I don't even like fishing...

But I would love to go fishing with Rachel Maddow on the Cape!

And no, I am not a super-stalker. She posted it on her twitter.
