Blue Jeans, Baby by Founder Tish

A good friend told me today that she’s never met anyone quite so obsessed with jeans as me. My answer was that if anyone else had had the wild and wooly denim ride I’ve had over the past two years, they’d be every bit as manic. It began with what was supposed to be a one-time denim splurge–a pair of gorgeous, faded black, boot-leg Sevens that cost more than all…

Where’s the Living Room? by Founder Tish

We’ve never had a living room before. Well, technically, the room came with the house, but other than lining one wall with our dream floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, we’ve always pretty much ignored the room, only stopping by to search for a book, or store a hockey bag, or display the piano I swore I’d learn how to play but eventually wound up selling. The room was a glorified garage. One evening,…

Is it that time already? by Deb Jennifer

La Meme Chose by Deb Tish

I’ve been tagged with a meme by the inimitable Ellen Meister. There are, apparently, stern meme rules, at least one of which I plan to break: 1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts. (Done) 2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves. (Done) 3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules. (Done. You’re impressed…

Beginnings in Bayfield by Deb Tish

I like this week’s topic, beginnings. I’m all about beginnings. The first bite of a hot dog cannot be topped. Nor can the very first time you put on a new t-shirt or take a sip of icy cold lemonade or drive your first car. First kisses always made me weak and don’t get me started on crisp new journals that open with a crack and a promise. I’m not in…
