volunteering to paint a mural seemed like a sweet way to spend a beautiful fall day, until change of plans, you are actually going to clean the school basement.  but there under fifty years of student records and twenty inches of dust lay this lovely find. 

life is good.

when one moment you are looking for a coworker recommended german brasserie and instead discover a swiss-german painter of the same name.  fine line between googling and fate.

sweet daydreaming.

by far at the top of my cool things to learn is letterpress.  no denying, products are just visually more impressive and unique in comparison to inkjet.  if i could someday learn the craft, buy a press, and move to some small town creating nothing but sweet letterpress invitations and sipping really good coffee, i think i would be a very happy girl.

shout out to chictip.  they are truly like the orbitz of design websites.  you know they have shopped around, scoped things out, and you are getting the best deal of what is going on and out there in the world.  somewhere down the road they were nice enough to let me write for them from time to time.  you don’t complain when you get to stare at cool places like the salad shop.

sick obsession.

etsy.  seriously, once you start the browsing, there is no turning back.  i thought that if i ignored it, caught up in the hustle and bustle of new york, i would be free.  the things on my wishlist would suck and i could move onto more important things on life’s daily todo list.  nope.  these necklaces still rock, and now i’m sucked back in.  oh well!
