Just a few things I've been enjoying lately.
Oh and hey, I've mentioned a "spring line" on here a few times -- looks like that's just not going to happen, unless I magically acquire some of those shoemaker's elves who are happy to spend their nights stitching a hand-rolled hem as I sleep. It's cool, I'm sure you're all okay with this news. Spring even tried to wait for me to catch up. How nice of you, spring. I'm not fully comfortable talking about a "spring line" anyway (who do I think I am?), so maybe it's for the best.

I love Joanna's outfit.
Martin is full of great ideas. In this post, he provides a PDF of the "Meow is the time" artwork and encourages you to print it on violet paper, hang it, and send him a picture. So awesome.
Claire's interview with Hannah about Bobo and Pippin made me so proud to be a cat lady. The "Bloggers + Cats" series is pretty sensational as a whole.

I should figure out how to make these braids.

At this time next week I should be (barring any unexpected circumstances -- you never know) meeting Kate at Heathrow for the opening of Other People's Houses. Crazy! It's going to be great, right? No need to panic? Yeah! Awesome! London is cool. These two pictures are a few more of my outtakes (Pony is so much easier to photograph than Oreo, so if you're wondering why I rarely post photos of Oreo: it's not because I don't love her, but because I'm lazy). Vic's been posting interviews with the participants of OPH this week, and they're a good read.
Oh and that cat-art is by Sonja Ahlers. It's made a few appearances here already -- pretty sure it's my apartment's spirit animal.
Speaking of sweet Vic, her photos are always so wonderful.

No doubt you've seen this video posted elsewhere, but I do believe that it is one of the prettiest music videos I have ever seen.
Okay, WHOA YOU GUYS. I was not expecting such a nice reaction to our window display, so I just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you. You are all so sweet. The window was really fun to pull together! xoxo
suffragette: No, they're from the Designer Fabric Outlet. Mokuba would have been so expensive!
Susannah, Tynan, Angelica: Funny you should say that...
Chelsea: You are so kind, Chelsea. I don't know, I feel like I'm just a silly ol' dabbler. I like to keep crazy busy, I guess? Next stop, mental breakdown.
Juli: Sorry about the comment thing, I turned off anonymous commenting for a while -- I hope it's not too annoying (although for the record you're the only "Juli" who has commented here, I think, and I always know it's you! And ha! You guys would probably have a lineup of super talented artists who would design displays for you.
in dreams: I can tell you where we had them printed, but email me! It was a trade secret that was handed down to me and I don't want to post it publicly.
amy: The very same! Although last year the magnolia bloomed in early-ish April and has yet to bloom... Cool that you work at Swan, that's a great restaurant! And I hope your bag came already!
