magical vintage cruiser

photo by Jamie Beck for A Cup of Jo

I love the awesome hair tutorials featured by Joanna Goddard. Her latest one, the Chestnut Bun, showed the model riding a lovely black vintage cruiser. As I was scrolling through the comments I noticed Caroline, the model mentioned that the bike was "nothing special" that she had found on Craigslist. Naturally I checked out my local Craigslist & found:

It's a sunny 93° in this river city. I've got my hair up in a Chestnut Bun and am headed out the door to the the West End to pick her up now. And that my friends is the magic of the internet. I figure it was meant to be. :)

When this Danish credenza originally listed for $500 showed up on my local Craigslist I knew just the perfect spot for it.

It has beautiful tambour doors,

is in very good condition with only one cup stain on the top,

& was brought home for only $225.

A previous playroom turned office looks innocent enough...

but not really.

Sugar cookies shared by a sweet 6 year old with her class.
In search of the perfect sugar cookie recipe I ended up here, but even with Amanda's kind correspondence my cookies still spread more than I cared for. I finally settled on this flower shape & prettied them up with a little icing, pearls, & sprinkles.
