thanks! *hope you’re all having a lovely night*

bring it, monday...via ffffound.

your typical boring filing drawer - blah.

clean out those files, kids!

ta-da!

before + after from design*sponge. a really great summer project idea. it would look great with some decorative stencil pattern on the front or a cute painted border. { i think it may need bigger plants + bright colorful flowers to balance out the intensity of all that painted metal. }

if i wore this... i would look like my closet attacked my face.

hopefully you’re familiar with the sartorialist… a real-people, street-hunting fashion blog. if you’re not, check it out. it features some amazing photography, urban locations and always great fashion. { reading it usually  makes me: #1 want to travel somewhere glamorous, #2 wear ridiculous amounts of layers, #3 put on a ton of jewelry, even though you’ll never see, it under a scarf. }

today i ran across this guide: a step-by-step guide to getting shot by the sartorialist. definitely made me lol. check it out. then reach for a scarf. he’s coming for you.

oh snap. follow this map.

so cute!how great is this idea? a dreary wood pallet has been turned into a lovely daybed! and yes. that is a door as the headboard. note the surrounding decor. love love love! read more about this project and it’s creator here, from design*sponge.

{ weekend in review }

July 6, 2009

my weekend…

consisted of dogs, cookouts, the suburbs, the boyfriend, friends, good food and good drinks! it was fabulous. we did all the random things you always say you’ll do… but either find something better or run out of time. on our friday day off, we went to the columbus zoo (and kind of aquarium.) i will have to give my official review on cbus v. san diego in an upcoming post. we developed a scoring system with no functional basis or rational reasoning. stay tuned. 

… followed by a friday night cookout and drinks on the patio. saturday was the day of the mini golf tee off and championship title. (taken by myself – pictures can be found here.) then dinner at haiku with our friends. 

today… sigh… was bittersweet. not only did the end to another weekend arrive… but andy roddick fell short in the wimbledon championships. watch this clip of andy at the last place he wants to be after such a close match with rodger — a press conference. bittersweet. 

and so another monday is here. hope you all had a lovely 4th of july weekend! xoxo

just a friendly reminderyou eat what you touch.
