Relaxing by the hearth

(1; 2; 3; 4)

I've been throwing myself into all sorts of projects these last few weeks. Once I make my list and get started, it's hard for me to stop until I've reached completion. Messes and things out of order get me twitchy. It's silly - I know it is - to get bent out of shape for not sanding the legs of a chair or completing a sewing project fast enough. These things don't matter in the grand scheme (or even in the not so grand scheme!), so why do I let myself obsess? 

I don't have any fantastic insights to share (except to tell myself over and over, "Relax, cuckoo head!"). I guess this is just a little reminder to myself that it's okay to sit down by the fire with a book and some cheese, and my new, ridiculously awesome Lilly Pulitzer fireplace matches.

P.S. If you don't have a fireplace, I heartily recommend this DVD! It even includes life-like crackling sounds.


  1. Ooooh, you're reading Galore? How do you like it?

  2. Damn, why are those Anthropologie sweat pants so expensive?! I really want those.

  3. Now the anthropologie lounge section has brought me to this http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=23130875&catId=LOUNGEBEAUTY-BOTTOMS&pushId=LOUNGEBEAUTY-BOTTOMS&popId=LOUNGEBEAUTY&navCount=30&color=005&isProduct=true&fromCategoryPage=true&templateType=D

    Necessary for a work-at-home lifestyle??

  4. Kate, I picked it up after you suggested it! I'm just starting, but I love it so far. Thank you for the rec!

    Beth, I know. Those are the lounge pants I wear in my fantasy relaxed life :) I think you most definitely need a two in onsie for your new work at home life. They're practically mandatory!

  5. I'm terribly jealous you have a fireplace! Perhaps I'll be purchasing that DVD to compensate!

  6. Love, love, love the Lilly matches! Fire in style.

  7. Ashley, you won't regret it! It's so strangely relaxing.

    Sarah, I knew you'd be jealous of those :)
