happy friday

don't let anything get in the way of having an incredible weekend, you guys!

this is living

let the madness begin. 
we take possession of our new house April 20.
making a short list of living room inspiration
for the first floor.
here are some of my faves.
common denominator?
exposed legs every time.

mobile home.

this is nice.
you will like it.

built at le container.


i have a feeling these may come in handy. although i'm pretty sure
i can't afford to hand them out to everyone that deserves one.

and you can actually buy them for the low low price of 11 for 12.

this may not be news to you but
we're in the process of buying a new house.
new to us anyway...
the current owner has accepted our offer
post-inspection and we're just wrapping up the final details.
i realize my excitement is preemptive.

we're also prepping our current house for sale in the meantime.
never a dull moment around here.

despite several efforts, i can't stop my mind from
racing through our new space.
how different the layout is and will be.
i simply can't focus on anything else.

the home design obsession is nothing new for me.
in middle school, i decided to use an iron
to steam my bedroom wallpaper off.
didn't necessarily go over well with my parents.
i was proud of my resourcefulness nonetheless.
[keep in mind this was 1987. no google. no cable tv.]
of course our 'starter' homes have been fun
but they never felt permanent.
we worked with what we had
making mostly cosmetic changes.
a process which is still very fun.
now, basically, the ultimate creative challenge
i've been waiting for my entire life is here.

hoping to share some of our plans here in the upcoming months.
bounce ideas off you. share the excitement.
that kind of thing.

whiskey goggles.

how many of my favorite things can you cram into one thing?
i guess the answer is four.

wooden sunglasses made from bushmills irish whiskey barrels.
that come with a tiny crowbar to pry them out of their little crate.

sadly, they are sold out. which means i'm jealous of all 100 owners.

the bomb.

bizarre and addicting.
pick a place, pick a bomb, survey the blast.
maybe keep one of these handy.
it's good stress relief for wednesday.

music halls.

the insides of instruments...
as beautiful as the sounds they make.
killer poster series for the berlin orchestra.
