knitted landscape rug?

Once again I am convinced that toys for kids were SO much better a few decades ago.

Todd, you steal my heart.

Yes, people.  I adore Todd Selby and his work at  theselby.com. So much authenticity and inspiration. I love peeking into peoples lives through visiting their spaces like this. Such diversity and beauty.

Here are a few from one of my favorite selby shoots.

I have to say, I am still quite obsessed with the color of their living room. And since we can paint here at the new place… I just might.

Pretty excited that the husband is on board with the ruffly curtains for our living room. And the other highly anticipated internet purchase will be…

the wall paper will go into our many built in shelving to create a floating shelf effect… or at least thats my hope. I’ll share how that turns out.

Promise to do a little tour as soon as it comes together for us here. In the mean time, we did manage to pull of a pretty darn good selby inspired shoot of our own at our old home.

And so, a little tribute:

sweatshirts

March 25, 2010 § 1 Comment

I have really gone a little crazy for sweatshirts. Thats pretty much all I am searching for at thrift stores these days. And I feel like I can’t get enough. I have a few favorites, a few that are in need to be a little worked on for them to become favorites (but I am wearing them anyway) and some borrowed that that I have to say I am enjoying a little too much.

I love dressing up a plain sweatshirt.

Oh Markus Lupfer you do some amazing things with a sweatshirt.

Photobucket

There is sequence polar bear one in the shop that I really wouldn’t mind owing…

And what? You have bearded man sweatshirt just for me?

Photobucket

I would even settle for the less hairier version…

So yeah, I am a little (but only very little) fighting this warm weather. oh well.

if any of you have gotten close enough to see the state my eyebrows are in at the moment; don’t be alarmed. I know.

Hence the bangs in my eyes to hide em a little. I have tried several times to let them grow out like these two beauties here and I have to say I think I am the closest I have ever been. Resisting the tweezer is tough business.

how amazing is this shadow portrait collection?
I will not be putting it off any longer. I’ve been wanting to make some of the fam, especially the girls and make it a yearly tradition for foreva now.

Supposedly its simple to do.

Maybe it could be my very first DYI post? hhmmm. We’ll see I already have such a long list of projects to do but everything is on hold until we unpack.

naked (not for the weak hearted)

naked coffee is my favorite these days, and how convenient that they are now just a block away? a little too convenient.

Since we have been working hard setting up shop, we have also been making lots of these naked inspired drinks to keep up with these hard times.

Karoac: 4 shots of espresso, 2-3 table spoons of condensed milk, handful of ice.

Photobucket

Make 4 shots of espresso and pour into a jar, or something that you can put a spill free lid on.

Photobucket

Drop 2-3 table spoons of condensed milk into the jar.

Photobucket

Add a handful of ice and place the lid on. Give it a good shake, until you can see that the contents are well mixed.

I like to leave it in the jar to have it on the go, or pour into a glass. Whenever my husband makes these for me, he throws in coffee beans on top, it looks pretty.

(Only recommended for serious coffee drinkers.)

Where Am I?
