Sick Weekend

Theodore Jones Kight

Introducing Theodore Jones Kight, born Monday, July 18, 2011, at 1:52pm, and weighing in at 9 lbs, 10 oz. The delivery was such a cinch compared to our first that I’m still a bit shocked by it all! We got home Tuesday evening and have started our transition to being a family of four. Theo [...]

Taking a Poll …

I’d love to know your thoughts on this. I love all the modern (and especially hand-printed) tea towels, cushions, and other home textiles out there but have always waffled about featuring them here.
