knitted blood orange pouf
oversized ‘yarns’—and the bright color—give this pouf its punch. And even though it’s a bright color, it can be popped anywhere.
1938 leather butterfly chair
years ago, I had one with a canvas cover—but this leather is thick, gorgeous and will last forever.

a whisper of spring as the shortest day of the year approaches—lighten up with a whimsical reminder they’ll be getting longer soon.

happy hanukkah!

photo by: scazonKnown as the Festival of Lights, Hanukkah is observed by lighting a Menorah which holds 9 candles.

One is for each night of the holiday, and an extra light called a shamash—meaning guard or servant. Traditionally placed higher than the others, it’s lit each night and is used to light all the other candles.

Hanukkah begins tonight at sunset—Happy Hanukkah!

28th annual christmas sing-along: chicago

photo by: 20 LettersWhat: The 28th Annual Christmas Show
Where: Music Box Theatre, Chicago
When: Friday, December 16-24, 2011

For the past 27 years, holiday revelers have come to the vintage Music Box theater to watch two classic films of the season—‘White Christmas’ and ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’.

What makes the evening a holiday tradition is when Santa Claus, accompanied by the theater organist, leads a sing-along of the most cherished Christmas carols before the screening of each film.

In case you never knew the words to Auld Lang Syne, just follow the “bouncing ball” as the lyrics are projected onto the screen and enjoy!
