 Looking on Craigslist for new pad. This is dreamy clean. I wish they all looked like this.


 Best shower I've seen! Love those shiny tiles.

This is the Seattle home of Philip Newton- it is just a wish pic. Big windows, open kitchen, wood panels, lovely.

 I love terrariums- I suppose it goes back to my love of dollhouses. I used to spend my allowance on dollhouse furniture. miniature worlds. All of these terrariums can be found on etsy. Carmie Jar (above) by MossTerrariums.

Mr. Goodwill Hunting

 This is Mr. Goodwill Hunting. He has a great blog that shows thrifty fashion and decor. Above is a post from his blog. He saw the picture of the skirt and it reminded him of these pants he owns- which I loved instantly. Probably because it reminded me of my trailer cover made of vintage curtains below. Check out his blog, mrgoodwillhunting.blogspot.com. He is also going to be on the Nate Berkus Show today but that show unfortunately blows. It pains me to watch it- very choppy, makes me feel uncomfortable. I'd rather wear those plaid pants everyday for a month.

 Spring already? That was a painless winter. I just spent an hour cutting down the dead plants and raking the leaves in the garden. No planting projects this spring because I plan on moving and I am o.k. with that. Did a quick sweep of the front porch and put away the ice salt- Welcome Spring! Flower pics from Flickr.

Map Pillows

 I just worked an estate sale that had tons of maps- 2 boxes full and a box of poster size. I just didn't have the time or the will to go through them all. I know I could make something good with them but I am moving soon and don't want to add projects that need to be moved. These map pillows are available on etsy by My Bearded Pigeon.

Love it! Photo by Katie Raadt.

Notable Haircuts in Popular Music by Pop Chart Lab. I love this! The first one I picked out was John Oates.

St. Patrick's Day

My boyfriend does great impressions. He does one of his Irish mother about corned beef and cabbage. She would say "I never made corned beef and cabbage in Ireland. That's an American tradition." So now every time I see corned beef and cabbage, I think of that. Happy St. Patrick's Day Dorney family.

George Carlin Talks About "Stuff"

Random Likes

 Just trying to clear my desktop so here are a few things that caught my eye. Basket Weave Skirt by Rokit- it's screaming for a navy stripe top. Very nautical!
 Ikea Document Letter Tray $8- I think I have to have this.

Tom Waits Cameo Necklace- Fable and Fury on etsy. That's good!

Crazy for Fashion

 It has to be Spring fever - just can't get enough of fashion. Want to get rid of all the stale layers. I receive posts from Where the Lovely Things Are and they always have runway collections. Here are a few. Cacharel (above photo)

 Stella McCartney- love the black dot top on left!

Tsumori Chisato - at first I thought it was too much but it instantly grew on me. Love the chalky color palette.

Decorator Concept

 Anthropologie is opening a new store with the designer in mind. Wallpaper swatches, rugs, curtains, hardware- helps generate ideas and decision making. Love this work station- I am inspired!
