Tweed Jackets

I love the fall season; boots, jackets, crisp more humidity! One of many new staples I'm going to buy after I have this baby is a tweed jacket - with elbow pads. I love this one, seen on The Sartorialist

Our non existing entry way now kinda exists... When you enter our apartment, you walk right straight smack into our "dining room" - no entry way, no little vestibule, just the dining room table. So I thought I needed to create a "landing strip" as my dear friend S recommended. So, I took a spin online and saw this funky eames hang it all (pricey for a coat rack but could pass for a work of art, at least that is what I'm telling myself), so i put the hang it all up, added the chair and voila, a place for my handbag, Conor's yoga bag and hooks for light to heavy coats.
Not the greatest photo I know - and I still need to add some art to that wall, just a few pics I have in the meantime, I kinda have an entry way.

Before and After

This new old chair has been with our family forever, knocking around. My dad gave it to me, along with a bunch of other pieces of furniture after we bought our place upstate. I kept threatening to reupholster it myself, or get someone to do it:) but years (literally) went by and I finally asked Conor to give it to Salvation Army. A few days later, the chair appeared in our apartment, the next day in the our elevator, I met a lovely designer and her upholster guy and voila! I love it. BEFORE

Sexy nursing bras

Since I'm due in a mere 7 weeks with bebe #2, this article in the Times caught my eye. Some pretty sexy stuff. I think it is so important to still feel good about yourself when you are nursing!

Beautiful Wedding

A few weeks ago a couple held their wedding at our house upstate. We were flattered and honored they chose our house to host their very special day. They did such an amazing job with the decor and the weather held out for them too. When I saw the pictures I couldn't believe it was our house!

How charming...

What a genius idea, a little club house made entirely of recycled wood. I love the multi color
chandeliers and that skylight. From The Happy Home.
