bunnies...probably not a lot here till after new years but I thought I'd share this one thing I saw today...I'm feeling a bit frumpy and chubby lately {shocking I realize after the holidays}. Thought I'd go check out some fashion to lift my style spirits back up. If you have a few minutes roll through Tommy Ton's giant roll of yummy images on

I last thing...

Chris proposed this morning in a very funny, very unexpected– total Richie and Chris way.

I'm kinda excited to call him my fiancé instead of just my boyfriend.

I have some things to tell you about

Hello Kittens...

I just saw 3/4 of this movie on Sundance and I'm madly in love. Beautiful Losers please watch it - it would make me so happy to know that you did. I might say that you should only watch it if you're an art lover or maybe you just want to know what it's like to be inside my brain.

Also, I just dropped of my last order of the year and I'm super excited to NOT be working for a few days. I love what I do but I need a breakie-poo.

Chris and I are headed to Bean-Town for Christmas. We're not exactly staying in a castle but there will be snow if that counts. Plus the photo? just damn pretty. >via this lady

second 2 LAST...

this my pets is tattooed paper. I think it's just brilliant btw.

There are no grumpies at Christmas {Chris says so} so go out and get you some CHEER would ya?

Twenty Questions

One of the projects that I've been working frantically on in the past month was a super fun project for Ms. Jamie Flannigan over on Souled a Realtor with Heart. She gives good text don't you know? {she does} So we got together to do this fun set of 20 questions. Her words–my color and type treatments. Did I mention they're naughty? well some of them are anyway. I might have blushed once or twice thinking about my own answers while making them.

think of it as sex and the city reality style. You could go Jersey Shore {how would snookie answer it I am curious to know} with it or New York Upper East's all up to you.

I'm thinking New Years Eve and Champers will make a *brilliant* combination if you ask me. It will definitely turn your party into something to talk about for weeks to come.

Available on Jamie's Etsy store - total deal by the way $15

life is hard ... move on

The elves are busy here at Camp Richie so sorry I'm using videos as filler lately but there are just so many good ones.

Alec has it sorted out, by the way, about girls. He's getting his "playa" on at 9.

happy friday all

I Am

this looks lovely.

Wednesday, December 15, 2010


have I ever told you I keep a notebook by my desk 24-7? I have for years now. When I left my job of 14 years I had notebooks going back almost 10 of those. I write down my daily lists, contacts sometimes a taped photo or an inspiration. I can remember from those books what side of the page I wrote down a hotel's name and number from visual reference [and I've had to do it on a few occasions years after the fact]

I have only one rule for my notebooks. They need to be cute {duh} but they also need to have a spiral bound so they stay open at all times.

dog-gonnit this one is so cute it makes me want to skip the spiral bound rule. {one in each color please!}

Lauren Hutton

lauren hutton is a new face for JCrew right now. She's the bomb don't you think? I also love the fact that they didn't retouch a single freckle or wrinkle out of her - it's what women look like [even though I would retouch the hell out of myself given the chance]

it's so lovely to see her, I forgot about the clothes. Probably not what JCrew had in mind but it says a lot about the woman. The clothes don't wear her, she wears the clothes.

I have nothing better to say than this

I have watched this 4 times now. I can't believe the Grace that is present here. There is nothing better to say today than this.

what to get your favorite cold girl

I am ALWAYS cold. I wear a scarf 10.5 months out of the year even in So Cal. I realized a few years ago if I kept my neck and chest warm that it was at least half the battle. Lately I've been looking like a homeless woman with 10 layers of clothing on in my home office.

I was thinking that this little gem would be IT though. It's down right half of a sweater - which I love
find it on Branda's shop Etsy $150

by the way...she's in Argentina it makes it double chic

shhhh don't tell them but...

Some of my favorite clients are getting a paper treat this year from the elves here at Richie Headquarters. It's seriously so cute I don't want to give them away.

2 color letterpress on pearl white paper.
linoleum block printing and vintage type were hand inked and printed to create the master images I used - then turned into vector art for the master plate. a true merging of new and old technology!

Become Your Dream

I learned about James De La Vega today. He's a NYC artist, some call a graffiti artist. Spreading the word and hope of becoming your dream. Sweet sentiment I found a little video about him on youtube [below]

reminds me very much of one of my favs Jean-Michel Basquiat 80's graffiti artist turned art world darling.

great commercials

I've seen some fun commercials lately. Tommy's is one of my favorites. Also? the man at the answer his question, Yes, I do when they look like you.

{PS have you noticed that Honda Autos is using the same song in their commercials? I would be so bummed if I were them. The Tommy ad came out first. Someone dealing with that tune should have known it was already being used. #ADfail}

furry snuggles

I just put the jersey sheets back on our bed. Warm, furry, yummy sheets they make such a difference. This morning I woke up clutching a pillow like a bear and realized I'm still 6 while I sleep. Then this morning I saw this:

and realized maybe I'm just six all day long in a bigger body. snuggle up baby bunnies!
