Since Eric and I have been burning the midnight oil on various home improvement projects, I find myself over-fantasizing about building a modern master suite off the back of the house with large sliding doors that open up the outdoors and a sauna retreat.
These fantasies took a Kubrickian turn when I discovered the pod like architecture of the Saunaschiff in Berlin. With a swimming pool, bar, and lounge area, who would ever want to leave?
One can dream.

Bloc Party, 'This Modern Love' - A Take Away Show from La Blogotheque on Vimeo.
Another little gem from La Blogoteque. I find Kele Okerek's shyness very endearing. This is a sweet rendition of This Modern Love.
Happy Tuesday. Enjoy.

I cannot get enough of TV On The Radio's newest album Dear Science. Among the many great tracks, Lover's Day is my favorite. I think it's the most romantic song I have ever heard. It gives me chills.
Download it here. Then go get the album. You'll thank me later.

What a great outcome. I was so pleased to be in the majority for this election. America has done me proud.
Sadly, during the celebration at a local watering hole, my purse was stolen. It has been a difficult ordeal, but I'm trying to stay positive and remain thankful for the things I have, as opposed to focussing on what was lost.
I hope whoever took my purse enjoys my ipod, cancelled credit cards, and $7 cash. Lunch is on me.

Last Friday I took a half day off from my day job to meet the ladies of Oliver Wyman at Sydney's for my second Kspell Jewelry trunk show. While there was no trunk, there was a beautiful long table that served as the perfect backdrop for my work. These ladies were very good to me, and extremely kind.
Right afterwards, I sat down for coffee and great conversation with Amy Olson, my new jewelry buddy and fellow Etsian. I can't express how excited I am to have a friend with a similar hobby and lots of great advice.
It was a very good day!
