it was my 27th birthday earlier this month, and darling James of Mister Pictures took photos at my Elvis and croquembouche-themed party.

(and a big thank you to Natalie and Nomi for hosting!)

Christmas in Houston, TX

with 3 comments

the Houston neighbourhood of River Oaks is apparently one of the most affluent neighbourhoods in the US, and unlike many of the wealthy areas in Houston, it’s not an isolated, gated community. it’s right downtown, and the gorgeous homes range from modest colonial revival houses to impressive beaux arts mansions and french-styled chateaus.

and, because everything is bigger in Texas, the residents of River Oaks go all out for Christmas. however, their decorations are not a do-it-yourself job: professionals are hired to put up lights, sometimes wrapping almost every single branch of a tree—the cost of which is rumoured to be in the tens of thousands of dollars range.

is it worth it? tonight we (and dozens of other cars and tour buses) drove around River Oaks and i took some footage of favourite properties.

(please excuse the shaky footage and random family commentary! and enjoy!)

ginger bauhaus.

with 2 comments

my friend Jenn and her boyfriend Jack made this incredible ginger bauhaus for the holidays… which is one of those brilliant ideas that we all wish we’d come up with first. modern gingerbread houses? i expect to see a Dwell and Martha Stewart tie-in at the craft shops by Christmas 2011.

Jack is also a very talented illustrator and outlined the entire ginger planning and building process on his blog—including a few pictures of the ginger Mad Men they made with the leftover dough.

(thanks to Jenn for the pictures!)

“The announcement came to the elation of Britons, many of whom viewed the engagement as a seemingly inevitable, yet unreachable moment.”

i absolutely love all of this. love that she has Diana’s ring, love trying to imagine what goes through the mind of someone who’s been invited to join the royal family, love how classic Kate always looks. (don’t love that she’s allergic to ponies though—isn’t the equestrian thing a mandatory?)

if you want to brighten your day, interviews are here and here.
