...but it's relocating...again.
As I've mentioned before, I'm a Virgo. We organize, then re-organize, then re-organize some more. And some of us never really stop.
So here I go reorganizing again.
I'm having a understandably hard time keeping up the two blogs. I thought it was a great idea to split up the content but now I'm thinking otherwise. As of tonight, I'm putting it's beautiful here on hold. I will continue to blog about the family as well as all things pretty on the original blog, as the beat goes on.... Please continue to visit me there and, as always, stay tuned for new developments!

Wow, checkout these amazing necklaces from gamiworks on etsy that I found on Design Mom. They offer "a contemporary collection of Japanese chiyogami inspired gifts and accessories". Inspiring indeed.
These are thumb-tacks! Almost makes me wish I had an office again. Almost.
All gifts come in these darling tins which are also sold separately in assorted sets of twenty. What awesome party favor containers.

About three years ago, when I was buying furniture professionally, I stumbled upon this collection and bought the small unit for myself directly (and immediately) from the manufacturer. We use it in our foyer mostly for a random assortment of books & hats. The smart folks at Sundance put it in their catalog after the same market and are still giving it prime real estate in their book. (If only my employer had been so wise.)
Love these wire storage racks too. Great for a utility, laundry or mud room. None of which we have of course.

This is a fabulous book for first day of school jitters. It's about a raccoon that is scared about going off alone the first night of school so he and his mother create a ritual of kissing each other's hands to say goodbye. The kiss stays with him all night and he's not afraid anymore. Written by Audrey Penn and available here or at your local bookshop.

This beauty is new from Nikon. Not only is it a digital SLR camera with a scene recognition & face detection system, large, bright viewfinder, live view function (you don't have to put it up to your eye when shooting), 3 in, 920k dot, high-density color LCD & quick response...it is also outfitted with an innovative movie shooting feature.
I saw it here first but this looks like the best place for additional information.
This is a photograph of Stephanie Nielson and her family that was shot by Wendy Whitacre and borrowed from Stephanie's blog the Nie Nie Dialogues. The following text was also borrowed. This time from the Nie Recovery website. Please read on...
"On Saturday, August 16, 2008, Stephanie Nielson was in a plane crash with her husband, Christian Nielson, and his flight instructor, Doug Kinnear, near St. Johns, Arizona. Doug Kinnear passed away soon after arriving at the Maricopa County Hospital.
Christian & Stephanie remain in critical condition at Maricopa Burn Center. Christian has sustained burns on over 30% of his body. His wife Stephanie’s body was burned over 80%."
I didn't really know anything about Stephanie or her blog until stories of this terrible accident began appearing on other blogs I frequent. And, what it doesn't tell you in this quote above, but you can clearly see in the photo, is that Christian & Stephanie have four children between the ages of 8 and 2.
I was amazed at the outpouring of support and I too felt compelled to help. Last night I spent some time exploring the hundreds of auctions that fellow bloggers have created to help support Stephanie and her family. I stumbled upon a woman named Kaylyn who is unselfishly providing her creative services in return for donations to Nie Nie's recovery fund. Thus, the darling new headers on my blogs. You can find her by clicking the custom headers button on the right hand column of my blogs or by clicking here.
