I’ve seen colour palettes all over the internet recently (primarily on Pugly Pixel and all over Pinterest), but I never really understood what inspired someone to put one together. That all changed when I came across this beautiful image! As soon as I saw it, I thought “I have to make a palette”. Perfect for
Happy Monday friends! This is my third last “Monday” for the indefinite future. Or, I guess every day will be a Monday, depending on my mood! Given my waking up at 5:30 everyday in the last week, including weekends, because I am SO.EXCITED.ABOUT.LIFE I tend towards the no days will feel like Mondays. At least
[Editor’s Note: I just found this draft way, way back in my archives! Woohoo! Free post! Funny timing, given that we are moving and I’m packing up all my jewelry, but hey, what can you do?] Earlier today [AS: originally written in the spring.] my friend posted her new jewelry organizer on facebook. It was
Well, today is November 5, 2011 which means I am officially 29 and one month. I’ve decided that on the fifth of every month until my 30th birthday I’m going to do an update about how I’m doing in tackling my 30-before-30 list. You can see the full list here. In these monthly updates, I’m
I love the ever changing Etsy homepage. Most days it makes me swoon (not that I check out Etsy every day or anything). It is always a carefully curated collection of complementary items. (I should win an alliteration award.) Side note: I’ve always been fond of the word “alliteration” because it is sort of like
Late last month I got a new haircut. And I have to say, it’s probably the best haircut I’ve ever had! I lucked into the senior stylist while using a Groupon because the junior stylist called in sick. Sad for him, score for me! The following pictures were taken the day of my haircut. Cute,
UPDATE: The Giveaway has closed! I got approximately TWO entries and therefore instead of generating a winner – I’m going to send each winner one print! Several months ago I shared our amazing customized “road trip” print from January Jones Prints. At that time, I also mentioned that I had bought two more prints from
This photo was taken on November 15, 2008, in Kyoto, Japan. As I’ve mentioned before, the hubs loves Japan. In addition to his love for Japan, he has a strange affinity for moss. If he loves Japan, and he Loves me, he LOVES moss (just kidding, at least I hope he loves me more than
Last week I alluded to the fact that the “best of” series is becoming less of a weekly round up of the best blog posts on the web and more of a random occurrence when I see something (or some things) that I really really like. It’s still going to focus on super blog posts,
So, this isn’t a fashion blog (and unfortunately for you fashionistas out there, it never will be a fashion blog – frankly, I’m not fashionable enough!) But, this is a blog about stuff I love and stuff I do, and I LOVE our new vintage-y belt buckles and want to shout out to the etsy
Several months ago I came across an awesome etsy seller, January Jones Prints, and their super cool print, “the roadtrip”. It got me thinking… wouldn’t a world map with all the places the hubs and I have been together be an awesome piece of art to adorn my walls? I promptly contacted Kirsten & Nic,
I did I super fun project this weekend that drew its inspiration from all over. It was partially inspired by this “Five Dolla Art” post over on YHL, partially inspired by this Double Rainbow Pancakes post on The Girl Who Ate Everything, partially inspired by this Rainbow… post on Asthetic Outburst, partially inspired by St.
I can’t stop thinking about this clock from etsy seller uncommon. It’s even on sale for $30.60 (about 10% off) in their shop right now. Unfortunately, the only place this clock would fit in right now is the bathroom and really, who needs a clock in the bathroom?
Ready for this week’s round up of stuff I love on the web? This week, a “find” of a “find”. Meghan of mustard and sage posted these sweet succulents from Etsy seller Tortoise Loves Donkey and they are amazing! All week I’ve had my eye on various succulents and these are just perfect. Wouldn’t those
It’s a testament to my attitude these days, when one of the very first posts on my new blog lists some recent sweet Etsy finds. I love Etsy. I spend much to much time “rummaging” around trying to find the gems that speak to me. Several weeks ago, I came across this print by January
