tickey smickeys

please check out our friend kris' really fantastic music, subnyms the tickey smickeys and los tiquismiquis.

kris, who now calls spain home, was kind enough to make the trek out to see us this weekend, and infuse us with his unique brand of infectious inspiration (gracias, amigo). this music is equally infectious great stuff...i wish it was mobile so i could listen to it out in a field under the stars, or on that porch in camden on the lake. but alas, i'll bask in the glow of my computer as i listen...above is kris with ruby about two years ago...

here is a good place to start

bunch o new links

making it lovely

i came across a new blog, making it lovely, via decor 8.
nicole balch is the owner of pink loves brown, a design studio offering everything from paper goods to pocket mirrors to brooches. she also is a creative wiz and mastermind of her own blog, which chronicles- amongst other things- her progressive (and very quick--how this woman has the time!) her extensive DIY redesign/reno of her oak park, IL home. i love the subway tiles she used in the kitchen

look at the wall of her studio! enviable organizational skills! and you've got to appreciate a woman who does a blurb solely on breadboxes

and best of all, she does brilliant mockups of her ideas on the computer and inspiration sheets for each project, as she whittles closer to the end goal
