Just taking a few days off...

Modern Charm is contemplating a little makeover of sorts. Just looking into a little Botox and maybe a freshening chemical peel, but is totally drawing the line at leeches.

Egg-ceptional (sorry)

I came across this through Whip Up - a great post about dyeing eggs using natural things to produce these gorgeous colors, as well as greens and blues and such.

And, of course, Martha has these stylish Botanical Eggs.

Just when I think I have Etsy figured out...

they restart Alchemy. I guess I'm just going to have to sit down and read through all of the forum posts, otherwise I'm sure to miss some vital piece of info or etsy-quette.

Blah Blah Boring Blah...

I promise, if I had something of interest to write about, I would do so. However... yeah, nothing.

Let's see, I painted a chair. My haircolor has been discontinued and I have to find a new one. I gave the cats a bath. I finally bought a curtain rod for my bedroom. I made a pan of brownies.

See? Nothing worth a blog post. Even the cat bath was, relatively speaking, uneventful. I mean, a madder-than-hell cat is not an unexpected scenario.

I promise, as soon as something remotely interesting happens, I'll be all over it with pictures and commentary.

Project Runway: Congrats Christian!

Tim Gunn resists the undignified urge to give Christian a noogie.

Oh my gosh, what an amazing show! All three collections had amazing pieces - Rami's antique lace gown and Jillian's kick-ass jacket - but Christian's show was stunning. Plus, the look on his face when it came time to announce the winner - priceless. He was either going to hurl, or cry, or pass out. Not sure which, but it clearly showed how important this was to him.

The minute that I saw his clothes on the models, I KNEW that Christian had an amazing stroke of luck with guest judge Posh. Lots of skinny pants? Check. Over-the-top dramatic details? Check. And MAJOR shoes.

And not only does he fit inside tote bags, supermodels can carry him while wearing 6 inch heels. (I'm not exactly sure if this helps him as a designer, but I guess it couldn't hurt.)

I confused am.

On Sunday it was 74 degrees and sunny and spring-like and gorgeous. Monday, it rained and rained and rained. And this morning...


In other news, introducing Large Market Totes! The big sister to the Market Tote.

These are just a touch bigger, just a tad wider, just a pinch taller, and the handles are just a wee bit longer.
