Gone for Now... Not Forever

Hello strangers.  Sorry for our long absence.  Copper and I are having exciting summers... Copper is back in London visiting her special someone and I am getting ready for my big move back in the next few weeks.  Because of our crazy summer lives we have neglected you and for that we are truly sorry.  But we do promise great things upon our return which will be here before you know it.  Until then... HAPPY SUMMER!

Reading without Books?

So this is the inevitable post that was going to come up on a blog about a love of books and a love of going green... the Kindle/Nook revolution.  Our debate about this goes back and forth constantly.  Both of us love the good old fashioned page turner AND the new fangled light weight portable library.  To sort out our dialogue and hopefully to inspire some of you to chime in with your lovely opinions, we are going to do a little pro list for both options.  Please, feel free to comment with anything you feel we have missed on our list or which you prefer.  We would LOVE to hear from you!!

PROS: Kindle/Nook
-light weight
-green, very green
-convenient to carry all your books with you in one place - carries up to 1,500 books!!
-great for the jet setter
-sleek style 
-you can style it up by buying your own designer cover
-not only can you get over 500,00 books but you can also get newspapers, magazines, and blogs
-3G wireless network links you up so you can buy new books in over 100 countries
-you can sync your device with all your other life altering technology (i.e. iPod, iPad, blackberry, etc.)

PROS: The Good, Old Fashioned Book
-tangible, page turner
-libraries! we love libraries! 
-if you like, you can mark, highlight, doodle, draw... whatever you want in them!
-book smell 
-without books, we would lose book stores and who doesn't love sitting in a book store
-when the books are no longer readable you can reuse it and make fun, creative, charming things out of them (thats what we are all about HERE)
-no matter how big the Kindle/Nook get, they will never have all the books... we love the obscure, random finds in the darkest corners of your bookstore
-authors can't sign your kindle

The Cardigans
Craig, Daniel (as in Bond, James)
calling cards
chemistry (between people)
Carl Jung

Mother's Day

Since Mother's Day is quickly approaching and because I love my mother I have decided to look into a really cute card for her.  She LOVES a good hand written note so its kind of important to get just the right one.  So, ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce our contenders (all are from etsy btw)...

Pillow Talk

I honestly thought of this post because I liked the idea of the title Pillow Talk.  But as I got to searching for cute pillows online I was overwhelmed by all the great options!  If you are going to rest your head on something why not choose one of these adorable decorative pillows!  These are all different styles and all different price ranges so there is something for everyone. Which are your favorites?? Do you know of any other charming options to rest you head on?
