Good Nightmares

I was such a huge fan of Emily Strange back in college. What’s not to love about the little weird girl with jet black hair and a collection of matching kitty cats? But somewhere between growing up and joining the workforce, I lost touch with my favorite caricature. You can imagine my excitement as I came across this quirky glossary of nightmares while working on another project. Behold, the Good Nightmares Glossary from Emily Strange. I may have to add this one to my wish list…



The Book of Nightmares

With Halloween looming closely overhead, I thought it appropriate to share an intriguing piece of literature from Pulitzer Prize winning author Galway Kinnell. The Book of Nightmares, published in May of 1973, drips with imagery of horror, anguish, and brutality – and promises to become a sure favorite despite whether this wrenching genre may fall within your realm of preference.

Kinnell’s other works, dating as early as 1960, can be found on his website and are, of course, available for purchase on Amazon.

Events by Francesca Launch

Tony and I have been keeping quite busy working on more than a few projects, but my favorite has been Events by Francesca, the new wedding and event planning company founded by one of my best friends and favorite event professionals.

I wrote about her company a little while ago (check it out here) and I’m  happy to report that things have only gained momentum since she decided to launch the business.  Think of her as a much younger (and Cuban) Martha Stewart with the think-out-of-the-box flair of Preston Bailey. You really just have to love that.

Check out Francesca’s blog for your fix on all things glamorous, and if you’re a bride, she’s the one who can really make it work without blowing your budget. (Trust me – I was also a client.) Congrats, Frenchy!
