Blinks + Long Weekend

An assortment of pretties spotted this week:

Loving the vibrant work of new-to-me artist, Hadley Holliday (discovered on Civetta)

I wish I could afford this amazing bag from Kate Spade's summer 2011 collection. It's called "Gwen." My brand new Nikon deserves a stylish portable home, dontchya think? (spotted on Ali Loves Curtis)

 Pretty wooden bracelet (via Bliss)

 I want to bury my face in this peach cake (seen on Kiss the Groom)

 I'm not the only one with a mug problem, right? Loving these colorful "dip" ceramic mugs from Crate & Barrel. (Link found through My Favorite Things)

Speaking of mugs, I've been itching to try this recipe for warm grapefruit tea

 Paris Graffiti Kiss print. I might need to add this to my Little Brown Pen collection.

I've had my eye on public bikes since last spring. This orange one is awesome, especially against that robin's egg blue. (spotted on Seesaw)

 We're having a coin drive at school and I am so tempted to buy this adorable glass piggy bank...my kiddos would have a field day. (spotted on Little White Whale)

Spring decided to come out and play...at least for a couple of days. It's slated to be a balmy 62 in New York City today, and even if the temperature drops back down to 40 again for the rest of the weekend, I'm going to try and hang on to the feeling of sun beams bouncing on my face. I have Monday & Tuesday off for President's day, so technically, a four-day weekend awaits. If all goes according to plan, thesis headway will be made, the house will be scrubbed and a pedicure will be had. Aside from that, we'll see where the wind takes me...

Blowing you all a big kiss. Go enjoy!
