hello, saturday.



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?

thought of the day : today.



"Today I Choose Love," a polaroid by the ever-lovely Cori Kindred. (See also: photostream and vintage shop)

interior inspiration : light and dark.













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?)

happy three-day weekend.



Ah, I do love Fridays. I shall leave you with the above video from Kate Spade. It's just so sweet and dreamy, I can't stop watching it. See you on Monday Tuesday!

thought of the day : start.



"What Are You Waiting For?" a silkscreened/acrylic painting by the great Trey Speegle.

ten images of inspiration : an escape.












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.

"Never too late," another typographic beauty from the folks of Friends of Type.

interior inspiration : floral art.











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.

positively in love with...

a silhouette cake...



...as featured last month on Poppytalk. I think I might just have to duplicate this idea for my next party.

love in the photobooth.







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.
