This looks like a fab company - darling and affordable shoes in all kinds of colors! All the girls that run the company are my age (24) so I'm thinking that I need to get it together! Also, this photo reminds me of my life right now, living out of a suitcase, with waaaaay to many shoes (even though I keep wearing the same comfy ones every day ...) Finding a summer apartment is turning out to be much more challenging than anticipated, but I guess I can use some of the rent money I'm saving to buy some of these shoes!

somewhat true and kind of funny

Spiteful gnomes, top hats and caped crusaders ... my best friend has started a blog about the funny things in life ... I made her a banner so now that she is all official, check it out!

teensy tiny

I love these tiny little gardens. DC is pretty lush but I am going to buy some altoids tomorrow so I can make one for my desk. Of course I have a stash of tins at my parents house in my art closet, so I should probably just wait to get them next time I am home, but patience has never been my strongest point.

work is ... work!

via frolic

The good news is, I really like my new job and my new city, the bad news is, a new job and a new city is a lot of work! My sweet aunt and uncle are letting me stay with them until I find an apartment, and they live on a gorgeous Northern VA horse farm, but the commute to the city is awful and I am so not a morning person! Tomorrow marks my 2 week anniversary though, and it's time I get back to fun things, like blogging! and that brings me to this image, which is definitely motivation to find a little home to decorate!

I really REALLY want some of these fun embellished tights. Dreamy.

I love swans and I think they are beautiful. When I lived in England, there was a swan family that we watched as the parents built the nest, laid the eggs, hatched them and then set of swimming and diving around the canal. (remembering this makes me miss england A LOT) I especially love this swan's necklace, and the colors, and the typography.
