Unfortunately he seems to have lost it while eating peanut butter on a rice cake and I think it is now in his belly. B seems unfazed by that, but was a little upset he wouldn't have a tooth for the tooth fairy. I told him the tooth fairy would accept notes of explanation. We have to write one ;-)

(Of course B hates it. Oh well, you can't make everyone happy)

B was sick all day. I don't think he got out of his bed except to go to the bathroom, poor guy. He seems to be feeling better, but I just read him books and tucked him in. I had intended to do laundry, go to the grocery, clean house, but instead I sat around in bed with B and played on Pinterest. I did make these cookies. Delicious, not too sweet. They were inspired both by my sweet tooth and lack of butter (or just about any other groceries in the house). This is one of the reasons I love the internet, anything you want, any question, any recipe, any ingredient, any product.....a well-worded google search and you have your answer! This method of research suits my lazy, home-body ass perfectly. Also, due to our lack of groceries, I made a very bland veggie soup with everything that was about to go bad, including some bib lettuce (probably part of why it was bland). I'm going to freeze the rest to use for stock, but I served it over some quinoa, with a little bit of grated Romano and the last of some parsley pesto I made last week and it wasn't half bad. On the other hand I am truly out of food, if we were for some reason trapped in our house for any long period of time, we would starve after the vegetable stock runs out.
I hope my wee son is all better tomorrow, but it was a rather nice day of cuddling with him in bed :-)

Pinterest has renewed my love of surfing the net, it is a way to organize stuff that I GET, which seems to have also renewed my desire to blog. Just another quick note about est, the real or replica is a regular feature. I'm on the second issue, and I am not certain that I absolutely love the magazine (the interiors are a little stiff for my taste) but if it has features like this every month I will eagerly await each issue!
I used to be a design mag addict (Domino anyone?) and I still am, but I don't have to spend an arm and a leg on all of the European Mags I used to get (and the only ones worth looking at anymore!) I can spend that money on local, organic fare for my wee son (gees that stuff is expensive some days) and get my fix for free online. A new discovery for me is Est Magazine. I liked this feature on the Eames classic shell (the DAW chair, who knew?). I spotted the real one right away, but you know I wasn't quite aware exactly why it was real. This was brief, but super informative; also, loved their styling of the Eames chair. Check it all out here.
I am always on the look out for clever ways to deal with odd doors and windows since almost all of my work is in New York City, and every space is small and quirky. Enter this room from Susanna Salk’s summer cottage (via Rue). While not exactly my style, the beautiful mustard curtains behind the sofa and low slipper chair dividing the entry from the living area and then echoed on the other side of the room, give this room a cozy symmetry and sense of depth, despite the architectural detail.
