Sunday, pillows. I love these two.
Also yesterday, we (kind of reluctantly, oh, Ikea, where has the magic gone??) went to Ikea in search of a pillow display. I love these shelves because they are airy, plain, (cheap,) & will tuck nicely into my booth space; my husband loves these shelves because they give him an excuse to get a new power screwdriver. Also, this is a great case study for mocking up your display before a show, because as much as I wholeheartedly embrace the color gray, seeing the pillows all together sent me directly to the brighter end of my fabric stash spectrum. Well, as bright as I get, anyway.
I also want to talk about this package of marzipan, which I unearthed while sorting out my baking cupboard on Friday (in service of cupcakes that would turn out to be both disappointing & boring). Its expiration date is 10/31, which means that I have discovered it just in the nick of time, phew. I was just admiring those gold-plated marzipan pumpkins in the latest Martha -- & those pumpkin & apple cupcakes are tempting, too. Then there's one of my all-time favorite Martha cakes, the garden one (though it's more delightfully Peter Rabbitty in my memory than on her website). And, yes, this is a true fact about me: given the excuse, during the busy run-up to my busiest season, I will spend a lot of time thinking about things like spending a lot of time making tiny tiny vegetables, just because it's possible that I could.
