Have a great weekend! (& Friday links)

Processed with VSCOcam with m5 preset

Thank you so much to those of you who came out on Tuesday night to celebrate the arrival of Madewell in Sacramento! It was such a fun night, and I really enjoyed getting to say hello to some readers.

I shared a few photos on Instagram (#MadewellCA), if you’d like to see.

Now looking forward to putting on those jeans I bought and enjoying a quiet, autumn weekend before the holiday rush! How about you?

Here are some other items of note lately…

These are hilarious. (And are a little like the art history version of these favorites from a couple of weeks back.)

There’s a new list of coveted cookbooks calling out for a round-up, but this lovely interview Jenny did with Gabrielle Hamilton of Prune just put that one at the top.

What would a text message from Jane Eyre look like?

Great idea: kids’ shoe rental. (They grow out of them so fast.)

Remember my craving? We finally tried Vik’s Chaat Corner in Berkeley and it totally satisfied it. So good, if you’re local!

Parents: what do you think if a stranger calls you “Mom” or “Dad”? Is this sign of a “Mommy Problem“?

A world calendar for next year. What festivals would you most like to attend? And what’s missing?

Kate interviewed me for her Project 30 series.

Also, I still get questions about my puffball hat. JCrew just put one on their new Women’s Gift Guide—which is gorgeous, of course. (Use SHOPNOW for 25% off everything right now.)

Yep, it’s gift guide season… hard to believe. Here are some more sales for those of you trying to get ahead: Madewell (Code FALLBACK for 25% off sale), Gap (Code HAPPY for 30% off), & Macy’s (Code GIFT for 25% off).
