Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah

My, oh my, it’s a wonderful day today in my part of the world – sun shining, birds chirping, crispness in the air, the kind of day that begs to be lived outside!  It’s the kind of day that gets me thinking about Kinfolk, small gatherings with people I love, simple gestures, the balance of work, play, quiet.  As I set out to watch one of Kinfolk’s much loved videos, I tripped upon the fun news of Kinfolk launching an apparel company.  Fancy that!  No more wondering what to wear to your Kinfolk inspired Small Gatherings.  Then my eyes slipped to the bottom of the page for more fall inspired fashion and I saw this from Portland Monthly online magazine:

Ummm, is that girl wearing a sleeping bag?!?!?

Ummm, is that girl wearing a sleeping bag?!?!?

 

Move over Snuggie, zip on up in The Napsack by Poler Stuff.  This thing looks brilliant to me, but I also spend a lot of time figuring out how to wrap blankets around myself and go about my day, something like The Napsack would make perfect sense around a campsite.  Can’t you almost feel that fire warming your fingers and toes?

I tumblr for ya

In the world of bloggers, I fall into the luddite category.  I’m not on Facebook, I don’t twitter or tweet, there’s no instagram, I don’t even pinterest.  But somehow Tumblr has found it’s way into my world of arrows.  According to wiki, Tumblr is a “microblogging” platform and social networking site.  I’m not really sure what “microblogging” is so according to 800 arrows Tumblr is similar to a lookbook or a vision board that uses imagery to convey a feeling, tell a story. One that has found it’s way into my daily internet viewing is: Darling, be daring.

Darling, be daring seems to be curated by a 30-something male and provides images and quotes that I wish I could dive into and stay awhile.  Here are some of my favorites for a Sunday morning
