ice ice baby

philly’s own outdoor olympic-sized skating rink, the blue cross riverrink, reopens today for three months of ice skating enjoyment! located at penn’s landing (where market st. meets columbus blvd.) the ice rink is right on the delaware river and has beautiful views of the ben franklin bridge and philly skyline. plus, if you go on friday or saturday nights between 8:30pm and 1:00am, there’s a live dj and/or karaoke.
even if you’re not great at ice skating, it’s a ton of fun to try and a great workout as well :)

no, it isn’t thursday. but did you really think we’d miss the weekly poll?
last week i asked which holiday outfit you loved the most and the winner was pretty clear…the vast majority of the votes went to the cabin fever look (which was also my favorite – i just ordered the faux fur earflap hat…i can’t wait to get it)!
this week i was looking at all of the cute, colorful coin purses and pouches we have…they’d be such a great gift for friends and family! which one do you like best?
the lace applique coin purse:

sooooo…i’m well aware of the holiday rush. it’s pretty hard to ignore. i’ve already started scanning the web in hopes of sparking a creative idea for gifts to family and friends… which is why i wanted to make myself and the free people home office at your disposal this year for all sorts of tips, suggestions, and advice during the holidays. i’ll be using twitter to post cool holiday gift ideas, recipes, fashion advice, and general inspiration to make this holiday unique.

Post image for happy thanksgiving!

this is from a few years ago but it’s pretty funny/interesting…
apparently, the person responsible for photocopying for a penn psychology 101 class took the liberty of adding the instructions “draw a turkey” to the last page, and the results were scanned and posted on flickr.
here are some of my favorites:

and here are some numbers from the results:
9 hungry folks drew a cooked butterball turkey
5 had their turkey saying “eat me!” … but 6 had the turkey protest “don’t eat me!”
17 turkeys were gobble, gobble-ing
21 wished a happy thanksgiving
8 wore a hat
6 found themselves with a few more legs than you might expect
108 were “left handed” … 72 were “right handed” … although I counted freehand-drawn hands too, and wasn’t very exact about how I chose some of the blobbier ones.
click here to see them all.
hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday :)

some of the things we’re thankful for here at the home office :)

recycled scarves

our direct operations coordinator makes these amazing one-of-a-kind scarves out of loops of recycled fabric that she gets from old clothing. i love the color combinations that she comes up with! i also love that the scarves can be worn in a couple of different ways, as seen in the photos below. these would be such a cool handmade gift for friends and family as winter approaches!

i apologize for the blurriness of the above pic, but that’s the birthday girl in the black…and you can see that her face turned bright red when she walked in :)
