rick rack

I’ve just spent way too much time browsing through the vintage trimmings on etsy. I found these cute sets of trim and ribbon, but I can’t think of any logical reason why I would need them right now so I have resisted. oh but I love rick rack and floral patterns…. resisting is hard when things are oh so cute. {dlb would be proud}

heart shaped box

Denise from d. Sharp Journal is having a giveaway on her blog for this cute glittery heart shaped box. if you know me, you know that I was immediately attracted to this when I saw that lovely skeleton key. rather than divulge who holds the key to your heart, she’s putting a little twist on the age old saying by asking us a question from the other point of view – what is the key to holding your heart? leave a comment on her post anytime between now and Monday 9am {PST} to enter to win this sweet glitter heart box.

I simply adore these earrings from sulu design. fellow Portlander and jewelry designer, Susan, of sulu design, creates gorgeous handmade, unique jewelry that’s fun and affordable. how cute would these earrings be with a bright white or yellow shirt, a pair of dark denim jeans, and a fun pair of shoes. simply perfect for spring and summer. check out her shop here and her lovely blog here.

a planter for a dream home

Robin’s post yesterday about her apartment got my thinking about my own. actually, it got me thinking about how much I can’t stand my own apartment with those ugly yellow/white walls, that yucky tan carpet, and the awful layout. when dlb and I first moved here, we thought finding a place would be really easy. we were quite wrong. well, at least in the price range we were looking, location, and the fact that we were driving around not knowing anything about the city. we had been staying in a hotel for 5 nights, and finally got desperate for a place and ended up taking the first one that we semi liked and could afford. and we’re counting down the days until our lease is up. the only thing that keeps my happy about it is we are in a great location. and I have covered parking.
lately, we’ve been dreaming about having our own house. hardwood floors, a porch with real grass and plants, a garden, a big roomy kitchen with lots of cabinet space, two bedrooms, enormous windows that let lots of light in, and lots of space to decorate. I think I’d like this hanging ceramic planter for my porch. maybe two.

I need socks

I used to hate socks. I still don’t really like that seam down by my toes. it always seems to get in the way. so I don’t have many socks. but my feet have been really really wanting some warm, fuzzy socks to cover them lately.
I like these. they remind me of that sprinkle cake my mom once baked for me that came in a package with sprinkles of all colors that you baked into the cake. mmm… it was so good and packed with sugar.
I also like these and these too.
