A shoot I styled recently for a magazine, simple but love it!

Back to the city, followed by the rain

Rain makes me think of Seattle.

Seattle makes me think of friends.

Friends make me think of music.

Music makes me think of dancing.

Dancing makes me think of happiness.

I miss you Seattle and am so excited to give you hugs, I know you hear me say this all the time and if you have not know that it is true!

For those of you who have not heard me brag about them, I have many friends in Seattle that are extremely talented musicians. Chris and Tomo made some beautiful videos on a recent Washington road trip. The scenery is so beautiful! Thank goodness I am going upstate in a few weeks for a flea market and that I will be in Seattle by the end of the summer!

Thank you Seattle.

Packing my bags and heading upstate with Meagan for the Easter weekend. There will be lots of relaxing, country walks, eating, reading, rummage shopping, and maybe even some tv... shh!

I have a few things that I am looking for for my place. Some unique shelving visions I have, a new reading lamp, a side table for my room, pictures and frames, and oh who knows what else!

See you when I get back!

Spring Cleaning Never Fails to Happen

I have been really into fixing up things around my apartment lately. Had an Ikea outing earlier in the week and have been reorganizing a lot. Container Store, Bed Bath and Beyond, and any other place. Trying to really settle in and make the apartment a bit more me while finding a compromise with my two roommates. It has been a fun project!

So a bit back I mentioned that H&M was going to be selling home items. Well they do but as can tend to happen, not in the US. I recently found it online and was not as excited about it as I would have like to have been. I think the styling is fun and I just checked today and they have added some great summer things. Lots of great pillows!

The one thing that caught my eye the first time around was the jean table set. Not something that I would want to buy but it did inspire me to look into making my own version. A more rustic uneven version. So I have begun to gather old jeans I like and find of very inexpensive, hoping to start that sowing project soon.

Just so you have an idea:

There were a few other things that caught my eye:

Character Project

USA Network did a character project recently that I kept seeing signs for in the subway. Yesterday I finally remember to take a look at it. I am a people watcher and love photographs of people. Reminds me of Richard Avedon and Diane Arbus whose character studies I really love. I more then often see people I want to photograph, but have to admit I am totally to afraid to ask. Here are some images that I really enjoyed.

Passing Quickly

My new goal has been becoming one with my point and shoot digital camera. I think Kylie has been having better bonding time then I have, but hey it is coming with my everywhere and it is coming out of the purse, its a start.

My hair continues to get shorter...

Kylie took this photo of me at a great new restaurant, Caracas, that just opened down the street from my place. A new place seems to open every week and I have fallen a bit behind on trying them out!

One of my most favorite things about my neighborhood are all the great brunch places. I try to rotate between them every weekend.

I have been spending a lot of time organizing upcoming shoots and looking for inspiration.

The best part about Juliette's is that they serve Stumptown coffee. They announced it to me one week as though it were some far off unknown wonder of the world! Stumptown has been spreading throughout Brooklyn and some of my favorite places serve it! That's right Manhattan, for now you have to come here to get the best coffee in the city!

My first of many cobblers this spring season! It was so good, and I ate it was some delicious vanilla soy ice cream. That's right soy, I have been very good about my allergies lately! I already bought more peaches to make another one.
