am a fan



am a fan of gwyneth and grapes. after reading the clever, witty and wonderfully genuine article about cooking with gwyneth by jeffrey steingarten, i toted the august issue of vogue home for coffee table eye candy.

am a fan of ryan's review of the new harry potter amusement park. among other things, he's a talented writer, so it's an excellent read. i must fess up, even though we watched all the movies while waiting for benji to make his debut into the world, i am a half-hearted harry fan (meaning i found myself at a bookshop at midnight one year to get the latest copy, yet i was not wearing a costume. i felt like a complete muggle. i've loved the books i've read so far, yet shamefully i am not completely caught up). however i love hype and was happy to read his reviews about the taste of Butterbeer along with his unbiased details and tips about taking a trip to the wizarding world of harry potter. read part one and part two.

am a fan of this lovely baby shower hosted by amy wherein the guests crafted darling onesies instead of grimacing through typical baby shower games. super cute cupcakes & clothespins too.

am a fan of rosanna dishes, specifically these pretty polka dot teacups. i know i don't need anymore dishes, but they are just my style. i can't help dreaming about them.

am a fan of heidi's fruit & feta salad. we make it once a week around here with blueberries.

am a fan of this pretty portland pop-up card. so creative.

am a fan of caroline's dainty tiny birthday party she hosted for her little one year old doll, norah. looks like she remembered every itty bitty detail.

am a fan of glow cones. yep, you heard me. glowing sno cones are completely rad.

am a fan of julia's family portraits. i loved the images of this family featured near things they love; by the beach and in between stacks of books. adorable.

am a fan of new-to-me blogs. am dreaming of these fudge brownies, this perfect kitchen, this printable alphabet banner and this raindrop room.

am a fan of amy's first trip to new york city. i love the yellow cardigan and pocket skirt and colorful scarf and wooshy hair. a subway version of the sartorialist.

am a fan of joy's new wallpaper. it's dreamy design is just the right hue. wish i had a little house with a little laundry room to wallpaper.

am a fan of these completely cute confetti garlands by kristina marie via design mom. i want to swirl them all over this place for benji's birthday and leave them up until mine, one month later.

am a fan of moo.com. i just ordered a boatload of new business cards from them (love the quality, paper and overall greatness of their printshop). moo sent along a few coupons, so if you're one of the first three people who email me directly you'll receive a 15% off discount code for your first order. hooray.

am a fan of august. hello, august.

Thanks for sharing the link to the review of the Harry Potter park! I share your half-fan-obsessed-love of the stories :) I was never a midnight release girl, just the next morning and then I would spend the next few days doing nothing but reading the books. I encourage you to keep at it with reading. As you know, they are truly wonderful stories, ultimately about love :)

I love the mini Moo cards! I include them with all my orders. I read every Harry Potter book and loved them to death but haven't seen all the movies yet. Don't know about the amusement park!
