clam loves garland

Our wonderful D.C. friends helped us celebrate Clam with a shower last weekend, and it was the most fun! Our awesome, creative, and lovely-in-every-way artist friend Karen crafted the sweetest decorations for the shower, including this clam garland (which I carefully untacked and brought home with me for Clam’s nursery).

Karen also painted that fab painting in the photo and gave us the gift of a commissioned painting for Clam’s room. Love it!

We have good and true friends in the District, and it’s really the only thing we miss about living there. I’m on a one-woman mission to convince every one of them to move to Philly, pronto! It might take a while.

Thank you all for a beautiful shower. We love and miss you!

a room with a view

(by Stefan Ruiz, available at 20×200)

Most of my coworkers have a gorgeous view of the Philadelphia skyline from their office windows. So gorgeous that I linger just a little too long when I walk by. I would never, never- ever!, get tired of looking out my window and seeing the tops of those buildings disappear into clouds on rainy days or a sunset reflected back at me on their glass facades … if I had a window.

I’d also be happier and more productive and no I have not had my worms today.

So I decided that I need a huge photograph of a big sky and some kind of view for my closet office. I love the one above of Cairo, Egypt (which I found at 20×200), but the small size is too small and the next biggest size is $600. It inspired me, though, to look through photos of our travels to see if I could find one that would work. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far.

near Petra in Jordan

downtown Amman, Jordan

on the Nile in Luxor, Egypt

And then I found the company LTL Prints, which sells wall decals, and they have this one of Amman that I like:

Or I can have them make a decal from one of my photos. I’m excited that I can just stick it on my wall! But now I can’t decide. What’s a girl to do? Any thoughts, Internets?
