Cafe Express has finally made it to Austin

Was thrilled to hear about their new location down by Seton Medical from my sister. Less thrilled to wait for a parking space on a recent lunch date with my hubby. Though I'm so happy Austin finally has a Cafe Express!  Have y'all checked it out?

Merry Christmas!

Glittered Jingle Bells

How fun would this be to DIY with beautiful fine glitters from Martha Stewart?
I found this garland for sale at Sweet Charity last week.  Oh what fun it is....

A Window Wonderland

I love Illy coffee and I'm in awe over this Barneys New York window display.

Barneys New York teamed up with the Food Network, the Cooking Channel, and Illy to deck their Madison Avenue windows in a “Have a Foodie Holiday!” theme. A papier-mâché Mario Batali head sits on a platter, while a mannequin wearing a dress made of foil coffee bags and disposable cups sports an Illy espresso machine as a headdress. Simon Doonan and his madcap team have created a campy homage to the well-known foodies of today.

Rejoice! Bay Hill Design

If you have never window shopped at this design shop/ design studio in 26 Doors, it's worth a looksy. 

Vintage Santa

These sweet vintage images make me so happy.  I'm going to use them for gift tags.
