Fun for Friday

What an adorable idea! Of course, from Skona Hem.

Just like these slippers. I've added them to my wishlist for next winter.

Working on a dream...

...that I will be able to rock out, wear tight jeans, and exude overall coolness into my 60's like this guy right here

Pitchfork so kindly posted the videos from last night's halftime show, in case you missed it. A love of the Boss runs in my blood (a couple of my Aunts are Springsteen Super Fans), so I may be biased. But seriously, he was good last night, right?

Pop, pop, pop goes the color...

It's hard to imagine having a care in the world when everything feels so airy. The colorful accessories whisper little songs of joy, comparable to those of wildflowers in the breeze.And the light fixture - well, it contributes elegance and whimsy, simultaneously. Who doesn't love a multitasker?
Even the broom holds its own as a fashionable addition to the decor. Love, love, love Car Mobel!

Speaking of pink kitchens...

I spotted this one on Little Glowing Lights and fell in love! It looks so earthy and sophisticated at the same time. The rich pink feels so warm, which is perfect for New England's winter. Though I'm hardly a fan of cooking, I might be more inclined to spend time in the kitchen if it looked and felt this great.
I think I'd fill that sunny window with houseplants. Every pink needs a little green for balance. Aren't the mismatched chairs charming? Slightly unexpected, but perfectly inviting for tea and conversation.

Back to blogging

Where did January go? Between a visit to Pennsylvania, a few days of feverish sickness, and new jobs, I've let my blog go to dust. Though I haven't posted, I have spent time contemplating a rustic, bubble gum kitchen...
...listening to Andrew Bird's new Noble Beast

...and most of all, enjoying this late winter sunshine that alludes to the quickly approaching spring.

Happy Week Before February, all.

White Wednesday

I've been looking at this room all day...Perhaps I'm so drawn to it because it is very similar to my own room. Though, my room still needs some work. Luckily, I have already taken some pointers from this one and now I just need more pillows to get the full comfy effect!

Pre-Light Living

My boyfriend started a new job that gets us out of bed long before dawn. After we finish our breakfast and he leaves for work, there's still no sign of the sun. I've always had a fondness for early, early mornings with their uncomplicated quiet beauty. Gareth McConnell's Night Flowers remind me of these mornings when the day has not yet been defined and mystery lurks in the atmosphere.
