I apologize..

..for being in a clothes-posting mood lately. With the change of season, I can't help it! Especially when I casually roll over to Anthro and see this image pop up in my face.

Office Re-Do

[Image: Apartment Therapy]
When I saw this home on apartment therapy from Jessica of How About Orange last week, I knew instantly what I needed to do to make my office space flow better. I'm the type of person that until my surroundings are cohesive, I remain in a state of frustration. So I commissioned my fiance to create a computer stand for our iMac as well as install a shelf above the desk...and the results: fabulous!

Spring [cleaning] Decorating

Victoria over at sfgirlbybay mentioned it a few days ago and I would have to agree....it's time to spring decorate (not clean, decorate). I need a breath of fresh air in our little apartment so I have been searching the internet to gain inspiration. I've decided to spruce up my dining/living room and found a few resourceful photos via cottage living magazine. Oh how I would love to one day live in a little (maybe big) cottage...
So yes, a few of these photos are just me dreaming again, however, I could always draw on the color palettes :-)

Wedding Wednesday

One of my most memorable experiences this summer working for martha stewart was having the opportunity to assist with a Weddings photo shoot. Anything that has to do with invitations, jewelry, and gowns .. doesn't disappointment me :-) Along with my fellow intern, Jenny, our primary task was to create and produce the balloon banners you see hanging in this season's story, "A Return to Glamour." Though you only see one or two in the magazine, we created several of these ceiling-to-floor length banners that seemed larger than life...especially when Jenny and I had to haul them from 36th to 42nd street! So heavy and hilarious :-)

Flickr Group: Vintage Mugs

I've mentioned before I can't help but thrift store shop for dishes..plates..mugs..tea pots..bowls..I don't discriminate. So when I was trying to decide what flickr group to profile this week I was instantly drawn to the one entitled "Vintage Mugs."
