You know it's going to happen. The Joss Whedon masterpiece that defined a generation will get a reboot at some point soon. I'm just going to go ahead and cast the reboot for Netflix, and they can thank me, (and pay me), later.
Maybe you don't agree with some of my choices and that's okay because we can't both be right. I'm especially proud of my choice to play Buffy's mom.
Now, tell me, would you tune in, or not?
Buffy: Chloe Grace Moretz
Willow: Maisie Williams
Xander: Tyler James Williams

Dawn: Bailee Madison
Anya: Bella Thorne
Don't get me wrong, I love Teacher's Pay Teachers and Pinterest but the ideas for learning are time-consuming and too expensive. I'm about to go broke for the price of laminating sheets and colored printing.

My many jewels have been rolling around, tangled in a bathroom drawer for my entire adult life. Tangled chains and missing earrings scattered all devil-may-care in there. As I grow older, I seem to be growing infinitely smarter, or at least more organized, and I've discovered a solution.
I've decided to organize my mess of priceless gems using this gorgeous jewelry box by Bulleatpig.
Sure, it took me the better part of a week, but now my treasures are organized neatly and on display for me to admire whenever I please.
There are few diamonds and even less gold but it's still my jewelry and I love it and think it deserves a lovely home.
Artist Anna Magruder's "Alexandria" spoke to me. I fell in love with the sweet little thing as soon as I spotted her. Now, as much as I would love to afford the real deal, at this point in our lives, we aren't exactly buying original art but we can buy prints and enjoy these great artists nonetheless.
Perhaps it's the east coast vibe, or the cheeky little ginger that draws me in, but this print is now hanging on my wall for all to admire. Take some time to browse her shop and see if anything speaks to you. I've added my favorites below.
I used to feel really guilty about not getting my baby books and scrapbooks in order. A good mother would have all these things organized, wouldn't she? Pinterest tells us how it's done and we dutifully spend a fortune at the craft store, and precious time that could have been used to binge on Netflix, to create memory books for our children. Well, not anymore! I found someone who can do the leg work for us.
GoodMorgan has it all sorted. Simply add photos and the occasional blurb and you're laughing. Well, not literally laughing, because you're too busy crying over the beautiful memory book you managed to put together with GoodMorgan's help.
Stickerhog has you covered for all things decal. I'm planning next years classroom already and my word wall is going to be amazing. I'd also like to order a few for my kids' rooms, mostly to cover up the damage I've done by using cheap decals. NEVER AGAIN! I'll use proper decals like the ones from Stickerhog from now on.
Isn't that the sweetest Owl? I also love this, this and this! Do you have a favorite?

The Wicked Stitch of the East.
Can you believe these outfits? Miss Grace turned nine this week and her favorite gifts by far were these awesome hand sewn outfits from The Wicked Stitch of the East. Someone shared her Facebook page with me recently and I was done, gone, browsing her wares for the whole evening. Grace's grandmother purchased her the Hairy Potter garb for her dolls, of course, and I'm not gonna lie, I had to have a turn too.
The best part was that this super seamstress is local to me! We began to discuss shipping when we realized she lived about fifteen minutes away. I'm afraid Grace's dolls will soon have a better wardrobe than any of us.
Like her on Facebook and tell her we sent ya.
I love this look. You know the one, with the many antique prints of Ferns or bird eggs or fish. It's just so simple and classic and perfect for hiding so many of the imperfections on your walls. Gnosis Picture Archive is your spot for all things print and with hundreds of choices you're sure to find the ones you want.
I went with the Ferns because if you watch The Goodwife, and if you don't you might want to start, she has this set, or a version of it, in her dining room and I always admire it when I watch. I always think to myself, if Alicia Florrick can survive the shit-show that has become her life and still have time to decorate with such excellent taste than so can I. So, I basically copied her, and you can too.

I'm forever looking for ways to get organized. I'm tired of the piles of coats, hats, dog leashes etc in my mudroom so I've been searching for a way to get things sorted. And did I ever find a chic, and frankly humorous solution.
I should really only be saying: You're Welcome. I've found and introduced you to the coolest wall-hooks on the internet. The lovely pineconeinabox makes these amazing animal wall-hooks and I want every single one; especially the ass-ends. I can't cope with the horse's ass. It's my favorite by far. Do you have a favorite?
Grace and Kate's mom
