Love watching Maria Sharapova play. She is fearless and when she is in the zone can really kick some ass. Off the court she is in cahoots with Cole Haan. Some of their stuff is kinda cute, but I am really loving their "Inspired Live" Campaign, shot by Todd Selby of the Selby. I can't say enough about him, he is über cool. Also, Maria isn't the only cool person, go check out the rest. It's real people with a little bit of quirk thrown in. Dig it.

Found this super cool flag the other day and thought it would look nice next to my Betsy at Betsy Ross's house pict. When I was younger I was always teased that my name was Betsy Ross, well, and Betsy wetsy. But is it a kawinky dink that Miss Ross and I both have the name Betsy and are designers? Weird!

Tried out my crafting skills the other day to make a thank you card. When I was in Marfa a few months ago I got to stay at the Thunderbird Motel. There they give you fun stationary and hand stamped postcards. So I took the bottom layer, which is the Marfa postcard, and cut it to the size of the envelope. Then I found some other green textured paper and cut out the Thank You letters. Hadn't done that in a while so my hand was real shaky :) Then I double stick taped them together. I kept the letters because i cut them out as whole letters and then sent them along loose in the envelope. Not sure how I lost the letter "A," but I did.

Just saw that Nora Kirkpatrick played at Coachella this weekend. Shows how much I know because I didn't know she was even in a band. But I do know that she is on one of my guilty pleasures "Greek" on ABC Family, where she plays a straight laced, rule follower, sorority gal, that wears Lacoste and her mothers pearls. This seems to be a 180º from her taste in music. I am 32, but my taste may be on the early 20s scale :) Anyway check out Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros. They are my new fav.

This is just a big ball of fun and has TENNIS!!! LOVE IT! I have seriously watched this a few times now, because it is so awesome.
This might be my favorite cover. I love the dude backup vocals. :)
My hubz and I saw these fun book graphic tees and now he is hooked and wants them all. Talk about a whole new wardrobe. That is a lot of tees, but hopefully the quality is worth it. Oh and check out the yellow tee "Wisdom of the Heart," I spy graphic god Alvin Lustig.
