My neighbor dropped this tear-sheet by my house today. It’s a nice bit of press for the Paper Doll Parade. I love that the writer is encouraging kids to use the stationery for writing thank-yous! xo suzy”

Election 2010 Voting Information

Today, November 2nd, is Election Day! Make sure to get out and vote. Voting is pretty simple, but if you have any questions, here’s an outline of helpful information. Please share this information widely–forward this email, and post it on Facebook and Twitter.

(Reading this on your mobile phone? You can get voting info here:

Where and when do I vote?
Find your polling place, voting times, and other important information here, using an application developed by the Voting Information Project. You can also get your polling location by texting “where” to 30644 from your mobile phone.

These resources are excellent, but not perfect, so to double-check information, you can use the Voting Information Project application to find contact information for your state or local election official.

What do I need to bring?
Voting ID laws vary from state to state, but if you have ID, bring it. To find out the details, check out your state’s info here.
You can also find more information by calling or checking out the website of your state election official. Look up their contact information here.

What if something goes wrong?
Not on the voter list? Make sure you’re at the right polling place, then ask for a provisional ballot.

My crazy tabletop styling

Here’s a tabletop I did a while back. I was inspired to layer vintage linens and really plop in lots of colors and textures. Check out the Xenia Taler tile on the right! Some orchids, Vietnamese coasters of dragons, straw mats, glass glasses, metal silverware…I think I have all 5 feng shui elements. Do I? Hope you like it!
