Beautiful photography is one thing that never fails to make my heart happy. In debating whether to decorate with photographs or paintings, photographs won hands down. I love these prints by aliciabock to offset the deep maple-colored velvet curtains I just ordered from potterybarn. Nostalgic and vintage, these photographs will be the perfect accent for ivory and ebony-finished furniture.


the perfect gift.

This is my next project {this is glamorous and rockett st george}:

wish list-ing.

I just discovered the beauty of creating wish lists. I love making lists (to-do lists, goal lists, grocery lists)... I even have a special list-making note pad... so why not a wish list? The best is that crossing things off this list has tangible results.

A preview of my fall (mini) wish list:
What could be better than stationery in my two favorite colors right now for keeping in touch with close friends?

I would wear this blouse to work or with white linen shorts on the weekend. I love the flexibility of california weather where even fall clothes have a hint of summer.

This necklace is the perfect balance between delicate and statement. I would wear it to dress up a white tee with my joe's and tan suede mocs.
A fall wish list would not be complete without a statement bag.  Made of buttery leather and with a cool, stream-lined shape, I don't think this is a bag I would ever retire.

apartment love.

Just got these adorable mugs for the apartment (thank you, anthropology).  I put them on our cookbook shelves/buffet to add a hint of color to our neutral-focused room and to show off my new initial.

the office.

{the SCOOP}

The other day--after countless hours perusing design blogs, I came across a couple prints that I decided would be just PERFECT for our little office inlet. Of course I had to buy them {etsy:queensorder & LookyLoo}. These are the guiding mottos for my dream-job search right now (interests: international development, new media, event design and design in general), but I'm sure they will also be a little dose of encouragement when grad school time rolls around.

Can't wait to put these up!!

Dear God.

I want to pray like this.

Troubles, troubles.     
 That's all you hear from me, right?    
But who else can we simple people take our troubles to?          
    You know, sometimes I wonder,
who do you take your troubles to?                
 Anyway. Motel and Tzeitel have been 
married for some time now.                
 They work very hard. And they're as
 poor as squirrels in winter.    
 But they're so happy, they don't know how
 miserable they are.             
 Motel keeps talking about a sewing machine.                   
          I know. You are very busy now.
 Wars, revolutions, floods, plagues, all those 
little things that bring people back to you.     
But... couldn't you take a second
 and get him his sewing machine?                     
Yeah, and while you are in the neighbourhood...                
    As you can see, my horse's leg...      
Am I bothering you too much?                                                                                                       
        I'm sorry. I'm sorry.                                                                                        
As the Good Book says...             
  Why should I tell you what the Good Book says?
