The change in seasons inspired me to do a bit of redecorating ... and the serious need to dust under what was there before! Photos of friends, a few gifts, and items collected from antique shops and on travels. I spotted the weird looking dried plants on the right blowing down the street, pulled a U-turn and snagged them!

Lady of the Mountain

Fabulous post on Miss Moss from a 1950 story on the Colby College Mountain Day hike. The ladies of the past had so much more style!

and since I mentioned weddings ...

primele via oh joy

I love love love these! If I a. actually wrote letters and b. stayed at the same address for more than a year at a time I would order one immediately. As it is, I'm thinking this would make a fantastic wedding or shower gift.

new digs

via this is glamorous

Two of my roommates are getting married in the winter so I am moving to a new apartment. The best part (besides not having to mow the grass anymore) is getting to redecorate! Time to build up the inspiration files!

totes too

via banana
The search continues for the perfect summer bag. My nylon Herve bag from college is slam worn out but it is so light and holds so much stuff that I keep using it. But this looks like it might be a good replacement ... linen and leather ... I think I love it!

letter bag from moop

I love this bag for summer, especially since I really really want a satchel style tote and can't quite afford this.

shim shimmer

from deborah lippman
I think some glittery nail polish is EXACTLY what I need to get through the rest of winter. Typing emails would be so much more fun!

a whale of a tale

Baleine from Atypyk
How adorable is this bookmark? PLUS since it fits inside the pages it won't get all mashed up!

i love dresses

via fieldguided
I am pretty much obsessed with this APC dress right now. As in, I have just been staring at it for the past 20 minutes and trying to figure out my odds for winning the lottery any time soon ...

via growing up creative
How cool is this? And its made from toilet paper rolls! Despite the fact that typing that last sentence made me feel somewhat like Martha Stewart on crack, I can't wait to try this in my room! I would love to paint the outside a dark brown and the inside gold ...

My work

I had so much fun working on this project designing a site for a car wash service, and now it's up! I love doing illustration work ... my favorite part is the bird!

Need Supply

I have been a very bad blogger lately, which is sad, because I love blogging and getting sweet messages from strangers who like the same things as me, and I love cataloging the beautiful things I see. Now that I am all moved in to my new home FOR GOOD (Seriously) I finally have space for creating and maybe a little time too. BUT I will attempt to mitigate my shame by posting lots of lovely things now.

xo & more to come!

Bows and Baubles

by A Alicia
I really really LOVE this hand sewn felt broach at A Alicia's etsy shop. I would probably wear it every day until people started referring to me as the girl with the bow broach!
