plant sightings

recent plants for my wish list. that cute little number with the pink and yellow in particular. almost like a ikat print on it's leaves. I'll need the perfect pot for it... and some luck in keeping it alive.

someone please...

get this reference. 

polka dot past


my current favorite, a found portrait.
 love her expression and her pink lips with the deep red background. 
...and peonies make anything look good, right?

love Sally England's macramé work. someday I will try my hand at it. 
wouldn't it be awesome to have a wall hanging like this? I think it'd be cool to dye the rope somehow...

summer look

from closetvisit (awesome, btw)

adding to my mental wish list of summer wear...
which, let's be honest, is never ending.

summer tulips

I went to Madison, WI a few weeks ago. these were pretties at the farmer's market. been looking around for peonies, but have I missed the boat already?

one for the books

calm and earthy, but still stylish.
lots of wood, neutral tones. nice art. like this a lot.

what do you think? too boring and beige?

 {pretty book about the sewing basics from this series}

just a little treasure I found recently, bought mostly for the cover...but I do want to learn to sew someday. so, overall a productive purchase. (do you like how I try to justify it?)

gonna celebrate a little for my birthday today and go learn some stuff at Blogshop this weekend. excited for that. also a free Diego Garcia show in Pasadena on Sat night (info here).

happy weekend!

I've been giving the blog a cold shoulder... this bathroom, on the other hand, is warm and inviting, don't you think? loving the mix of patterns and the moroccan feel. is that a beer beside the tub? yes. I definitely like it.
