I have been really looking at some interesting, clever sites lately:
Keri Smith could be my long, lost alter-ego, but with better drawing skills.
Staci is a Quirky Bird: A webpage designer by day, a fun blogger by night. (or coffee breaks)
Hooked on Houses --a good place to ogle your dream house.
I don't know if Orangette really needs any more press, but her website is fun. (and she is in Seattle and about to open a restaurant)
