Today I'm featured over at Lynne's amazing blog Tea for Joy, as part of a new project she is doing. Lynne always has the best style finds and inspiration, and now she is doing a series of posts on 2009 style resolutions. The questions are insightful and really get you thinking, so you should head over and see what it's all about.
As a bit of belated holiday cheer, Nesting blog has posted their top five finalists in their gingerbread house contest...and I'm one of them! That's right - you can go check out my gingerbread creation right here. D and I collaborated on it and it is very (very) loosely based on the floor plan of Case Study 22, one of my favorite Los Angeles houses.
And in real life, D surprised me with tickets to see Gillian Welch and David Rawlings tonight! Her voice makes me shiver and his guitar playing is insanely good. If you aren't already in love with them, I highly recommend this CD to start.
what fabulous features these are, rach! though you completely deserved to win first prize, it was so fun to see the other top contestants. congratulations and i can't wait to hear a review about tonight's concert! xoReplyDelete
Oh my goodness, look at that gingerbread house! Everything I said was so true - it's amazing! I think you should definitely win as your house is totally original - I've never seen one like that.ReplyDelete
OOOH congratulations! i love your modernist gingerbread. so much more interesting right? no audience voting? this is tragic.ReplyDelete

BTW, I totally think that your gingerbread house wins - hands down! That is the first and only modern gingerbread house I have seen, and it totally rocks the entire competition.
