About Me

I am a lover of books, films, good food, wine, music, design, politics, and a somewhat paramour of bad TV.  Lately, my passion for design has been the main focus of this little site.  You should find lots of cool stationery, gift wrap, lamps, fabric, and other design products to explore.  I was born in Fayette, MO, grew up in Wheatland, WY and have lived in Chicago, IL for the past 8 years. I live happily in Ravenswood with my wonderful husband Casey and our cat, Pooh.

    Gwen! Your blog looks great. I was checking out your Flickr photos…you went to Costa Rica?! That’s awesome, because I only got to go to Washington, DC, this year. How exciting. I’m looking forward to catching up with you via this blog. Take care! :)Angie

    Liked the blog. Will give a grammatical review at a later date. Big void in your life until you listen to Pierre Bensusan’s “Altiplanos” and “Intuite”. Bela and the boys “The Hidden Land” is good, too.

    Thanks so much for helping get the word out about my work this past year!

    Hi Gwen, what a gorgeous blog!! Found you off a comment you left with Jhoanna on One Red Robin. Something drew me to your blog to comment. I went to a school called Ravenswood in Sydney, very lovely exclusive girls school. Also love your taste in recycled wood furniture & glass!! So greetings from Darwin, Northern Territory RIGHT up the TOP of Australia in the tropics. It’s a very flat state, except for the massive rock in the middle of the country, Uluru & the deep gorges at Kakadu & into Western Australia. I would love a mountain home too, forget the city apartment, our home would be also by the beach, of course!! Green grass & a gate to the beach so our 4 children could run free. Love Posie

    Good blog, girl. Loved the stuff on Dude. Teaching Hamlet to 2 different classes, Julius Caesar to sophs, just finished Henry V, good days in the classroom. Hope the benefit goes well. Regards to Casey. Oh, nice pictures of the ex – she was a fox, wasn’t she?

    Hey Stacy,

    I found a really cute picture of you
    holding your own pink hollywood star.
    Xmas gift, correct? 😉
    Can you guess where I found it?
    Do you want it back?

    Sincerely,
