today, you'll notice something new to your right. yes, they're sponsors. consider it a trial run. but here's the thing. anything you see over there will be handpicked by me. i promise you won't see anything i can't back completely or that i am not completely obsessed with. and, hopefully, these new friends will lead you to something new that you love, too.
so, now, let me introduce you...
i've been a fan of the shiny squirrel for a long time now, and i know you will love jessica's shop as much as i do. (annnnnd, if you haven't already, check the blog. eye candy galore. which you should already know since i steal her finds all the time.)
and, speaking of eye candy, you might recognize the work of creative holly, who captured so brilliantly the pug i call luke. after you get done perusing her really amazing portfolio (she is smart, this holly), you'll find plenty of more inspiration at creative holly color, where she chronicles the colors that drive her favorite creatives (and lots of mine, too).
a big thank you to jessica and holly, and thank you guys for being such loyal readers. i hope you'll consider this new plan another opportunity to find something pretty. because that's what we're all about here, right? that's why i like you.
sorry for the spur-of-the-moment presidents day break.
i'll be back to regularly scheduled blogging tomorrow.
in the meantime, i really think these printed jars are great. and i can't wait to pick up a few of these for kelly. she loves everything pickled!

p.s. reader question: do you like when i blog home-y stuff? or should i stick to shoes and dresses?

this is for those of you who might vomit at the sight of any more pink & red. (after a great valentine cookie debacle last night, i might be a part of that crowd now.)
i also really like this one. now... if they could just restock this robot moonscape.
note to self: buy a laser cutter?
we saw "an education" last weekend, and i can't stop thinking about it. it's easily in my top five of all-time. really. that good. i loved carey mulligan, and peter sarsgaard really cannot be matched. really. go see it this weekend if you haven't already.
camus' the stranger, vintage brown leather school satchel, a.p.c. dress, bensimon elastique, wave dress by langner, fantasia lights*, forever21 clutch, me too peep-toes.
*i don't endorse smoking, but aren't those the prettiest?
surely you've seen the oklahoma city guide over at design*sponge? kelly and i worked on it together (though, to be fair, she did most of the work). but, if you ever find your way to oklahoma city, the guide is a good place to start.
also, thank you to all who nominated greedy girl for the okie blog awards. there is some stiff competition in there, including a number of friends, so i am over the moon about it. so, you know, don't forget to vote by end of the day feb. 14.
