Life is Like…

Fellow Seattle blogger Stacy over at rockin’ la boudoir was offering up a box of her favorite chocolates as her August giveaway, and I won!

To do so I had to openly discuss my guilty pleasure of dumping chocolate chips directly into a jar of peanut butter, but the reward will be sweet.
Thanks Stacy!

Returning Home

For the past few Fridays I’ve been talking about great summer escapes and fantasy vacations. This weekend we bid farewell to summer, and surprisingly,  I think I’m ready.  I’m looking forward to boots and coats and sweaters, fall vegetables and cozy nights staying in with a good bottle of wine.

So with a wave and sigh I say goodbye to summer.  I can’t wait to see what the next season brings!

Who’s Got Mayle?

I know I’m not the first to report the sad news that Mayle will be closing its doors at the end of this year.  I’ve been following and coveting the line’s beautifully textured dresses,  sweaters with the perfect mix of prep and edge, and sweet feminine tops.  I spent over a year trying to hunt down just such a sweater…I think it was the fall 2005 line.  

I never did track down that sweater, but here are a few of my favorites from the Fall 2008 collection. 
I guess I better let myself splurge before it’s too late!
