Dear Jason,

I just looked at your tour schedule and was disappointed to learn that you won’t be coming to Omaha this Fall.  However, you’ll be going to BOISE, ID???  Seriously?  Not that I have anything against Boise or Idaho, but BOISE, ID?

Omaha is very upset by this news.

These gorgeous LIT lampshades are custom-made using wallpaper, textiles and letterpress paper. I wish they had some ready-made ones available on their website for those of us without the money for custom shades. (via Design*Sponge)

If I were to write an entire post on 2009 calendars that I love, it would definitely include this desktop one by Michelle Brusegaard.

I think the tripod legs on these ceramic bowls are adorable. I have a thing for simplistic white ceramics–so versatile! (via More Ways to Waste Time)

Like Jane, I’m not a stamper (though I have friends who are), but if I were, I’d definitely buy some from good-ness. I’d probably start with a box of large alphabet stamps. (via The Speckled Egg)

Mad Men is on my list of shows to start watching. I’ve been recording every episode of Season 2, but first I need to catch up on Season 1. For those of you who are already big fans of the show, I’m sure you’ll love these illustrations by Nobody’s Sweetheart. (via Miss Jane)

The first of three presidential debates is tonight. Watch it, and if you haven’t already done so, click here to register to vote.

We had our mail held at the Post Office while we were on our honeymoon, and I picked up this enormous pile from them on Monday. There were a couple of magazines (really, did Lucky HAVE to put Jessica Simpson on the cover?), some large envelopes containing information about our new house, bills (of course) and, to my delight, this!

Thank you Andy, Micah and Nick for my free t-shirt!  I promise to wear it all over town. I love that my idea for an Omaha city shirt actually came to fruition and hope that you get lots of orders from my fellow Omahans.
