a few of my favorite things…

I’ve had a habit for a really long while now.

I peruse the internet, see something I like, quick, take a screen shot of that liked something, and then leave it to clutter my desktop for weeks to come. Then eventually I’ll begin to organize these aesthetically pleasing somethings into ambiguously named folders, i.e. “i like” or “april inspiration.”

I have a lot of these somethings floating around at the moment. So I thought I’d share some with you. Their whereabouts come from the multitude of design/cooking blogs I scour on a daily basis.

that sofa and painting sing sweet nothings to me

have I mentioned how much I adore owls and bud vases? no?

it’s that time of year again where images of succulent gardens start popping up everywhere. I unfortunately don’t have anymore indoor space for anymore succulents. We’re busting at the seams I tell ya!

love the colors and handmade whimsy in this living area

crazy about the yellow and taupe linens as well as the fresh flowers and mid century bedside table. This is from the bedroom of one of my favorite bloggers, besides being hilarious she’s got great taste!

NOM, definitely saved the best for last. If I don’t make these soon my mind may explode.

26 and Bow

Yesterday (April 6) I turned 26. I really like the even numbered years. Call me crazy.

I celebrated by taking the day off work, eating Indian food, and watching foreign films. Alex got me this sweet bow necklace from bluhour’s etsy shop. I love it a little too much!

Accessory Fun

I’ve acquired some new pieces of flair that help add some quirk to my current wardrobe.

Before studying abroad in Italy in ’04 I bought a cute, trendy pair of frames from Target. They’ve been oh so good to me these frames. Six years and counting and they’re still going strong. I even think they still look really good on, not at all outdated. But I figured it was time to get a new pair, I just needed some change in the eye department. And since I recently signed up for eye insurance at work AND made the switch from hard to soft contact lenses it only seemed fitting to update this area of eye care as well.

Voila, meet my new pair of hot frames. They’re by Nicole Miller and I had a lot of help from Mike (a flamboyant man I’d heard tales about) picking them out! On the outside they’re dark brown with hibiscus flower patterns and on the inside they have lime green horizontal stripes. So fun, LOVE THEM!

And now meet my new headband, I made it myself which makes me love it even more. I was inspired by these and have high hopes and even the necessary supplies to create one of the bow variety. This one was inspired simply by walking through the bead aisle in JoAnn Fabrics and coming across some luscious turquoise and silver beads. So I bought them, some thick black felt, and a plain headband. Once home I cut out a circle of felt, applied the beads via hot glue, then glued the beaded felt circle to the side of the band, and DONE. I’m really happy with it and I think we’ll have a long and happy life together.

next on the craft list: finish my study abroad photo album from ’04, I KNOW!

la la la Liberty of London

The blogosphere and interwebs have been aflutter with mentionings of Target’s new Liberty of London line. I’ve been patiently awaiting the line to drop for over a month now and was so excited to go to work on Monday just so I could peruse the collection on my lunch break.

My parents love an excuse to skip around the aisles of Target so they accompanied me and were kind enough to buy me a skirt from the line as an early birthday present :-) I bought myself a skirt as well and a cute little bowl that I’ve been eating stew, granola, and strawberry frozen yogurt out of for the past four days.

The scalloped edges on the bowl and the purple interior make my heart go pitter patter. And don’t even get me started about how much I love my new flouncy skirts! They’re so fresh and youthful and when I was a little girl I had a red/pink rose skirt that is oh so reminiscent of the one seen pictured.

Full circle…I’ve gone full circle!
