Summer of Games June 15, 2010

It has been declared (by some) (me?) as the summer of games. I love games — love competing, love coming up with strategies & love winning! Your Mom’s friends will confirm. Anyway, I’m hoping to round up some friends for a true game night one of these days. And, since I recently learned how to play backgammon (thanks SD & MF!), I’d really like to buy this:

It’s embroidered!!

Love me some Jonathan Adler (and his adorable BF Simon Doonan), but possibly, at $295, it’s a touch impractical?

IAYM’s darling friend Jen just launched a lovely new blog, The Haystack Needle.  Covering all things home — stationery, organization, art, food, crafts etc etc — THN definitely gets a spot on our blogroll!  Congrats Jen!!

In honor of the due date of two of IAYM’s dearest friends, I thought it would be appropriate to put together a baby-themed post. So, here’s a look at some of my fave latest baby-friendly things…

A New Twist on the Wine Glass February 7, 2008

U+ Wine Glasses

Just spied these tri-pod wine glasses ($105 for 4) from Umbra’s U+ collection in the new March issue of Bon Appetit (love the re-design btw), and I just think they are so cute, and genius. Delicate, but not twee. It’s so refreshing to see a completely new spin on such a classic design. LOVE. But, sadly, I have too many wine glasses in my cabinets already. These go on the wish list.

Benjamin Franklin Bridge

YourMom is (maybe) going to Philly for the weekend soon, so I’m really excited to see that Design*Sponge posted its Philadephia Design Guide today.  The guide was put together by one of my favorite bloggers, Joy, from OhJoy!  I’m hoping we can check out a few of these spots — Hello Home sounds dreamy!  While I’ve been to Philly before, I’ve really never spent time wandering or shopping while there.
