Happy Birthday Cara, Or, Saturday Morning at 9:48am

Storm clouds threatening while sun burns through the gaps so strongly it makes you squint.

Today we have Dottoressa, eloquent commenter around the blogosphere, writing from her hometown of Zagreb, Croatia to share her Advent traditions. Welcome D! Feel free to ask questions, everyone!

The Friendsmas Market Bazaar

Over the years online, I’ve come to know some very talented people. This pleases me. I love recognizing talent, the moment of, “Hey, that one’s got something,” and watching success ensue. So today we have Friendsmas, i.e. a list of my friends who make and sell stuff you might like to put on your Christmas […]

Despite A Few Annoying Characteristics People Are Pretty Wonderful, Or, Saturday Morning at 8:18am

It’s been a week full of friends. The blogosphere veritably blossomed, in-world. I met Chronica Domus, Tish Jett, and Kim of Northern California Style for the first time. I spent a day with Susan from Une Femme. And then I made a December date to meet Adrienne of The Rich Life on a Budget. Here […]

Upcoming Events With My Friends The Brilliant Style Bloggers

On November 4th, Tish Jett, author […]

Mamavalveeta Wins The Silver Cavatappi

That headline sounds like a horse race, doesn’t it? One run in Milano, perhaps, or Miami. In any case, Mamaval, the bracelet is yours. Please email me at the skyepeale address, and let me know where to send it. I really can’t thank the entrants enough. Those bracelet stories are so vivid and compelling. I […]

Quarterly Break And Turning 59

Hi guys. It’s my birthday today. Although 59 may be the new 49 — in terms of spring in steps — and we hope 39 is the new 59 — in terms of life wisdom — the click of one’s own calendar still registers precisely. So I celebrate. It’s also the end of the Q3 […]

“My Stylish French Girlfriends,” A Post-Freudian Review

A while back, Tish Jett asked if I’d review a book she loved, My Stylish French Girlfriends, written by her friend Sharon Santoni. Sharon was kind enough to have a review copy sent to me. It’s also been reviewed around the blogosphere by Daily Plate of Crazy, Une Femme d’un Certain Age, and the Hostess […]

A Rapture On Leaving The House And Meeting Some Humans

Sometimes the universe reminds you to get on out. Tuesday, I met the bloggers above. Wednesday, I attended a conference for independent web publishers, given by one of the ad companies I use in my sidebar. Both events proved the glory of the new. Sandra Salin, of Apart from My Art, organized the San Francisco […]
