Road trip

Craving the PCH and a convertable today. Stuck in frigid Massachusetts so I'll visit California in my dreams tonight. 

I hope Gladstones in Malibu is in it, along with las brisas and the stand in Laguna beach, a taco an any dive looking taco stand, the Lowes in Santa Monica, hotel del on coronado and pretty much every where from San Diego to San Francisco.



All the maps and charts we design our products with are beautiful in their own right. This one of Magic Island in Hawaii is particularly intriguing as I wonder the why's of how this place gained this name. 

Hawaii is certainly a magical this island especially magical?  

Guess I'll have to go there to find out!!!  


Flowers in your hair

If you're going to San Francisco... Make sure to wear flowers in your hair. One of the many places I need to visit again. 

I've walked the hilly streets many times and chilled in union square, next time I'd like to check out Alcatraz and take a boat tour of San Fran bay. 



New Year's rezzy???

We aren't thinking the usual resolutions....exercise, eat healthy, quit smoking... We want to go somewhere.

Where do we want to go? The Bahamas...the Exumas to be exact. One of my most life inspiring friends speaks volumes of this area of the world and I NEED to go.

I'll snuggle this pillow until I'm basking in the hot Bahamian sun.

Seaward ho! Hang the treasure! It's the glory of the sea that has turned my head.

Treasure island... There must be a lot of them! This one near Florida's St. Petersburg beach looks like coral in the map design featured here. 

It looks warm and fun too!

Muscle beach

New Years resolutions are creeping up... We made this pillow adorned with a map of Venice Beach, CA and all I could picture was the outdoor gym, men lifting weights, and lots of sideshows. 

But...did remind me of working out...and resolutions... And that they would be SO much easier to make and hold if I lived in Southern California instead of frigid Massachusetts.  


Sleep like a baby

While my son sleeps on my lap... Rocking on my glider chair...I'm looking at 2 of our NFN pillows. Both decorated with tropical areas...and I know that if I could rest my head and dream of the islands, the warmth, feeling of hot sand between my toes, the sun beating on my skin... I know that I would be sleeping like a bigger baby than the one on my lap!
