It's officially the weekend, thank goodness. These next couple of days I plan to: peruse estate sales, sit in coffee shops, take photobooth pictures, use up a roll of film, drink beer, and warm myself in a cheap movie theater. What are your plans?

I love the look of contrasting shades- bright whites/lights with dark elements, especially in homes. It seems to make every accent more eye-catching (plus, who could argue with the classic combo of black & white?)

I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend. Tonight I am listening to Bing Crosby & The Andrews Sisters, which led me to search for pretty 1940's finds. Aren't they all just lovely?

Currently dreaming of: a short escape. Packing up the car or hopping on a train to the coast or countryside. Bringing nothing but a few loose dresses, a stack of books, and a couple of film cameras. Spending time in a bed and lying on grass or sand. I'm ready for a little break and a couple days of discovery.

I know, I know- such a girly post, but I now have my own room and have gone with very (vintage) feminine style for it. One of my favorite parts is a wall of old floral art hangings that I have been collecting- it just makes me happy looking up at it when I wake up in the morning.

Whether it's friendly love or romantic love, I love how photobooths are perfect in capturing a fun moment in time with someone you adore, as well as an instrument for expressing your love. Once again, Happy Valentine's Day folks- je vous adore tout.
