Warby Parker! Decisions, decisions!

Dear readers,
Your opinions are greatly needed!  I received my Warby Parker home try on selections earlier this week and I am completely stumped as to which frame to choose or if perhaps they just aren't right for me?  I really love the Sinclair and the Marshall frames, but I worry they don't suit my face.  I'd greatly love to hear your opinions.  

I might just select another few for another round of home try-ons or perhaps I'll pop into their showroom in Philly to confuse myself even more! :)

Do any of you wear Warby Parker?  If so, which frame(s)? 

Thanks so much and have a wonderful, wonderful weekend!!

Oh Happy Day!  Warby Parker Home Try On Selection!

And here I am, posing in all of the frames (in black and white to cut down on the lens glare):

UPDATE! 11.15.12: Thank you to everyone who offered their opinions either on my blog, on twitter or in person.  It seems that Sinclair and Marshall are the obvious winners! (They also happened to be my top choices, as well.) :)  I'll be purchasing the Marshall frame in the near future since they seem to be a great everyday frame.  My old pair (~5 Years old. yikes!)- which are purple and lime green Anne et Valentin frames- are a bit on the funky side and I am in the market for a more neutral frame.  Marshall fits the bill!  I plan to purchase the Sinclair down the road, since I love them so much, also!  Thanks again!  Also- the Warby Parker Home Try On was such a great experience.  I highly recommend it if you are in the makert for some new frames or sunglasses.

The first of November.

Hello all.  I realize that this space has been quiet for quite sometime now.  I apologize for this.  Life just got a little too crazy, I suppose.  Expect more posts on here from me in the coming weeks because I've got lots to share (including all of the recipes I made with our home garden produce).  I've also got a big, big announcement to share!  But first, I wanted to let you know that my time on the interwebs has not been completely stagnant these past few months.

Doe Run Farm makes some outstanding artisan cheese.
I'm a new contributor for Handmade in PA- a blog from the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen!  It's an exciting new venture for me since I love sharing handmade adventures and stories with anyone who will listen.  

Autumn Splendor at Terrain at Styers.
Today's post is about an autumn visit to Terrain in Glen Mills, PA.  We visited a few weeks back for Terrain's annual Autumn Bounty Festival.  We got to taste some really delicious cheese and take in all of the delights of the season.  And since today is the first of November, I thought it might be a nice post to share with you all.  Click here if you'd care to read it.
