Prettiest handmade dominos everrrrr.

A look at parenting in Japan... my favorite read of the week. 

My favorite pin of the week... ah, I just want to sit right there. 

Though fall is my favorite, I'm not quite ready to dismiss summer, and this is so cheerful... and on sale!  

This week, I actually MADE something delicious and want to share it, rather than wishing I would... banana bread! And no, this recipe doesn't take three hours... more like 20 minutes to prep and 1 hour to bake or so. Sophie and I did it together and it tasted SO GOOD. Brian has already put in a request for me to make it again.

Cutest card for saying hello using the good ol' USPS.  

If you like me and my little blog, stylesmaller is a finalist over at Red Tricycle awesome awards, and, well... I'd love your vote! :)

So this is a post for APRIL, but it's stuck with me so much that I think it's worth sharing this week: great room-styling essentials that don't (all) break the bank.  

Sophie & I made art together ages ago, then painted over it again a couple months later, and I'm feeling like it's time to refresh the canvas again. I'm loving this inspiring collaborative art color pallet. 

Last thing! If you live near SF, be sure to visit the Renegade Craft Fair!! It's at Fort Mason. I've been the last few years, and this is the first year Brian and I both came home and said we could have bought a LOT more than we did. So much good stuff!!!
