    I’m pretty sure my mother would just die to have this…my dad too…and me, really! I’m dreaming of warmer days with lots of greenery surrounding me. I can’t wait for the smell of fresh greens, citrus, flower buds, and even the smell of summer rain. Let’s just skip this winter stuff, and even the spring stuff, and hope right to the HOT & SUNNY summers that make me one happy camper.

    Lucy and Stephen Marr own this beauty and I envy it with all my heart. Look at how it looks pieced together with salvaged window panes. So great.

    No matter how many times I try to step outside of my color lover box, I always circle back to this lovely color combination. It’s beyond perfect and never seems to grow old. I’m sure you can tell from my blog design that this combo is a keeper.

    I think it might be the mix of a color with a nod to earlier times (the mustard was a real winner in the 50’s) paired with the classics of black and gray. ohh and look how great baby pink looks in that lineup! Maybe I’m just making up stuff, but I love it!

  4. 8 Track Update

    3 Comments

    What do you add to your daily routine to get you through the day? For me it’s a must to put on some headphone and crank up the tunes. Some days that means listening to the same song over and over, and other days that means hoping around to different songs as my mood changes.

    So where do I find the playlists I listen to? It’s usually either my personal Grooveshark playlists or 8 tracks from some of my favorite bloggers. The 4 above have been in this week’s rotation.

    Aren’t these just beautiful? I’ve been enjoying tracking down photographers who capture the beauty of everyday things. Capturing morning breakfast, walks in the park, or lazy afternoons seems like an easy task, but as an amateur photographer myself, I find it challenging. I find myself only wanting to capture the perfect compositions, the best moments, the ones I feel are worth capturing…but in reality my photos never feel as real as these.

    Something to work one. Not all photos have to be perfect to be beautiful.

    I recently came across the blog called My Eva Foreva, a blog with great personality and unique film photo shots. I’ve fallen in love with a frequent feature on her blog called Film Weekend where she simply takes snapshots of her weekend…on a film format camera. The shots are simple and extremely beautiful.

    If you’re looking for a new blog to crush on, stop by and say hi to Eva. She’s one talented gal with some killer DIY ideas and a lovely Vintage Shop called Gold Antlers.

    I always love when I get a project that allows me to combine art with design, so I thought I’d share some work that has a wonderful marriage of both this week.  Enter Susan Stefanizen, an illustrator/designer who is a pro at hand-lettering.  Her whimsical, brush-like strokes bring such a fun effect to the typography.  I’ve seen a lot of hand drawn type floating around the design world lately, and I love it – it’s one way to guarantee your work is unique and original every time!  Enjoy!

  9. A Room For The Wee Ones

    5 Comments





    I’ve been eyeing this interior space for some time now. I’ve decided that if I have have children I’m going to go bold and paint black floors. Decided….done & done.
    This space is lived in by two little ones, ages 2 & 7. It’s minimal with all the right details; false suspended ceilings and sliding doors. All furniture pieces serve a purpose and the space was designed in a way that the space can either be open to the rest of the house or closed off for quite times.

    Ahh. I just love it…and I’m not a big fan of pink or red ;)
