Finally, my search for Toms Shoes are over. After going to three shops nearby, (sold out after 1 week!) I got lucky on my fourth try, my new kicks are black (I live in New York after all) and hot red - don't you think they would look just a little fantastic with an all white outfit? The silver is on my maybe list. The best thing about Toms, is when you buy a pair, they match it with giving a brand new pair to a child in need.

Ever since we bought the house upstate I have wanted to put a big window in the living room & paint it. This spring we added a gorgeous picture window and painted it a fresh coat of yellow, da vinci's canvas from Benjamin Moore. My sister has this colour in her house and I have always loved it. It has an ochre look about it and brightens the room up. I just love this yellow.
The picture window (now I just need to do something about that horrid chandelier)

I love the idea of reading book after book to Gus. Here are some very cool and practical bookshelves.
These two are from Apartment Therapy. I love the blue cloud...
This tree bookshelf is sweet. Source unknown to me.
These are some pretty spectacular bookshelves! From Marvelous Kiddo.
