Sweet as can be.

Nellie McKay has a new CD--a Doris Day tribute comprised of delightfully stripped-down (no Broadway-esque arrangements here...and no "Que Sera Sera" either, for which I'm grateful) jazz numbers and a completely adorable photo spread in the liner notes. Nellie's voice is perfectly suited to songs such as these and it makes for a very enjoyable listen, although nothing can quite top her debut album: "Get Away from Me" (best title Ever.)

Paint by number dishes from Anthropologie. I saw them in the flesh today and thought, "What would I do with dishes that cost $8 each?" But then I realized: it doesn't matter. Having them would be fun enough.

Tell your story walking.

Deb Talan, inspired by the brilliant Motherless Brooklyn by Jonathan Lethem. "tell your story walking" is my next tattoo, by the way.
