What to buy at Terrain?

I've got a 20% off discount for Terrain burning a hole in my pocket. It's good through the end of the month, so I still have time to choose what to spend it on. The problem is, there are so many tempting things to use it for...

Sun Shower Necklace, $48

Tagua Bib Necklace, $72

Marble Sunflower Dish, $88

And the big ticket item, which I've loved since its introduction but don't actually have a place in our house picked out yet:

Filigree Sphere, $238

Or I could be smart and use the 20% discount toward Christmas gifts. But I really like that light. What would you pick up?

Hello, again.

It's been four months since our wedding. It feels more like a year. You would think post-wedding, I'd have all this free time. Especially since I am not blogging as heavily as before (read: once a month if you're still following). Yet, I find myself busy. Yes, work and the usual obligations are there. But this busy is more of a in-my-head-busy, planning-busy. I love planning and thinking up projects for the hazy future.

Last month, I stumbled across a "planning enabler": Pinterest. If you're one of the few uninitiated, you owe it to yourself to take a look. This inspiration pinboard community was made for the visually-oriented planner. The best feature is seeing what my friends and fellow bees pin in real time. I could easily spend my evenings in a pinning and planning daydream. If you're curious, visit me and see what I've been up to.

In the name of productivity, I created a board just for my 101 Things list. Incentive to accomplish... and plan. Ooops. So far, I've knocked out two classic books (Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre), ventured away on two weekend trips, dined at new restaurants (Chifa & Meritage in Philly; Rivers at the Watergate in DC), sipped seasonal pumpkin brews (reviews soon on my wine blog), and have every intention of starting some DIY projects this weekend. Maybe a little mercury glass or an early start on the holiday cards.

Whatever it is, I need to close my laptop and be productive before the weekend slips away from me. Are you up to anything particularly interesting this weekend?
