collage

things i love sunday.

1. our new liberty of london bedding from target!! isn’t it gorgeous?! i can’t wait to put it on our bed after we get it all washed. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย *everything* is beautiful in this collection. check it out quickly, because a lot of it is already sold out!

2. heart-shaped teacup! how cute! found via hello tiger, which is a very cool blog with lots of pretty & neat stuff.

3. a beautiful room for a little girl! or for someone like me who just likes pretty pink things. hee.

4. another cool collage i love. (i can’t remember where i found it…)

5. speaks for itself. ๐Ÿ™‚

6. pretty wrapping papers from a gift wrapped life.

7. remember this movie? how dang cute were these kids?!

8. the happy lady eats blog has become oh joy eats, but it is still as beautiful & yummy as ever!

9. very, very pretty ladylike look from anthropologie.

10. i was just thinking of having a really nice bath. wouldn’t it be lovely to have something like this, where i could write or put my book or teacup?

and speaking of lovely baths, look at this one!!

that’s it for this week! hopefully i’ll be more present in the blogosphere since i’m feeling much better. ๐Ÿ™‚

ten things i love sunday.

another weekly installment of stuff i adore!

1. my new bag from target. i went to buy this thing like five times, and every time i just couldn’t justify spending $35 on a simple bag from target. if it were $35 and at the coach outlet or kenneth cole or banana republic, i wouldn’t have thought twice about it. lol! but i finally bought it today. it’s multifunctional–big enough to hold all my school stuff or be a carry-on bag, but still a good size for a large purse. and great news–my entire artbox fits inside it! that is definitely no small feat.

2. i adore luna lovegood from the harry potter series. she’s quirky, fun, and a little kooky, but she knows who she is and isn’t ashamed to be herself! a good role model, in my opinion. and i just love this picture.

3. my friend’s new book! my copy is on its way from amazon as we speak. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย you should check it out. i’ll definitely put up a little review once i’ve read it.

4. these pillowcases from urban outfitters are so cute. (they’re on my wishlist…hee…)

5. ย lovely audrey hepburn illustration! i wish i could remember where i found it…if you know, please tell me.

6. there is something about underwater fashion photography that is just so….ethereal and gorgeous.

7. i love the darjeeling limited. it’s a must-see (as are all of wes anderson’s movies). one of my favorite things about his movies are how they always star the same awesome actors, i.e. jason schwartzmann, owen/luke wilson, anjelica huston, bill murray…

8. bubble tea! ย of the avocado variety. it doesn’t sound that wonderful, i’m sure, but it tastes *amazing*. it’s creamy & not-too-sweet and all kinds of good. and i loooove tapioca pearls. yummm.

9. i can’t say enough how much i love collage. this one’s from kctrommer‘s etsy shop.

10. lastly, but certainly not leastly, we made a fun, sort of spur-of-the-moment decision this week.

WE’RE GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!!!

after out workout last monday, the sis & i were longing for a visit to disney world, and we looked at each other and said, “why on earth *couldn’t* we go? we can totally go! we’re adults and can decide when we want to go to disney world, damn it.” then we stamped our feet and pouted. just kidding. we got really excited and started comparing dates and tax returns and searching for great deals (which we found, by the way). when the hubs got home, we made our proposal, and he agreed! i’m shocked that he’s actually excited to go this time. lol so anyway, we’ll be there april 14-18. i’m sure you’ll be hearing much more about it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย  by the way, this pic is from last year’s disney trip.

ten things i love sunday.

another sunday, another chance for me to tell you what i’m obsessing over this week.

1. i love fashion & design blogs. love love love them. they make me want to make myself and my house look cuter. a new one i’m loving is idee geniale. i mean, the blog’s not new, but my love for it is!

2. art journals. i always get these grandiose ideas for art journals, but i never feel like mine look quite as cool as others do. i found the waterhalo blog, and i love the simplicity of each page. it’s so much more my speed than the super-collage kind, which i really admire, but can never achieve. so thanks to waterhalo for inspiring me to restart my art journal efforts. ๐Ÿ™‚

3. speaking of collage, i’m in LOVE with holograme’s collage style. bee-eau-tiful!! i especially love this alice-in-wonderland-inspired one.

4. knee socks (and over-the-knee socks)!! i love sleeping in them or just lounging around in them. oh, how i wish i had the cute knees/thighs of the gals in these pics so my knee socks actually looked this sexy.

5. brookish on etsy has the coolest pride & prejudice-inspired stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚ i LOVE this mug and have been wanting it for ages.

6. this. i want to go to marrakech, morocco.

7. my shiny zebra shoes from target.

8. ย i want this book.

9. and i *have* this book. keel’s simple diary. in yellow.ย i ordered it from amazon (it was cheaper there than from anthropologie or the other stores that sell it…), and it arrived on wednesday. i love it. i don’t always feel like writing in a journal, but this is so creative & original & thought-provoking.

10. my favorite lyrics from radiohead’s “creep”.

10 things i love sunday

it’s that time again! and i’m actually doing it on time and finishing it… lol

1. i really want this cd burning kit from modcloth. it comes with pretty labels, sleeves, and stickers.

2. this cartoon makes me laugh. i love literal translation.

we heart it

3. cool goal planner from the project girl. i’ve downloaded it and fully intend to use it for my 2010 goals.

4. the post secret blog. a lot of it is very inspiring. some of it is downright hilarious.

5. this is just plain awesome.

we heart it

6. the smiths. i’m listening to my new (old) record that i found at waterloo records in austin, tx. this place is *awesome*. and p.s. does anybody else think morrissey looks a lot like joaquin phoenix?

7. i love collage art. this one is from notpaper.net.

8. this is so pretty. i hope it’s faux fur, though.

etc.

9. le love

10. i simply cannot WAIT for alice in wonderland to come out in march!!! i adore anything done by tim burton.
