Rosanna :: Initally Yours Mug

Right now I have just one, but I'd love to have a little collection of typographic mugs that included this one! p.s. It's a way to early to be doing holiday posts, so I won't post the pic, but I'm really loving this Boho Holiday dinnerware collection, also from Rosanna. . .

Veer :: Kern Arrows Zip-up

I love {and own!} the original Kern Zip-up, but this is definitely going to end up in my wardrobe. Hopefully in the near future. Love the detail of the arrow zipper! This just made my morning. I know, I'm a type nerd.

Wedding Week at

With 7 weddings in one year, this book could have come it quite handy:

Are you dreading checking your mailbox for fear of finding another stack of save-the-date cards? Do you feel like Bridget Jones, sitting at the singles table in a world of Smug Marrieds? Erin Torneo and Valerie Cabrera Krause can relate. The authors of The Bridal Wave: A Survival Guide to the Everyone-I-Know-Is-Getting-Married-Years will be online Tuesday, September 9 at 1 p.m. ET to commiserate. . .

At least there's a blog for the next 7! Check out wedding-related goodness over at Washington Post's Wedding Week 2008.
