MIA – Grad School Take Over

Hello all! My apologies for being MIA – I have started grad school this fall… and reading has taken over my life. I’ll be taking a break from posting! But I thought I would share this great link my friend sent me about Anthropologie… (Anthro, I love you and your magical smelling candles that I can’t afford and your artful staging – but this is very funny).

“Here’s this gross fantasy they’ve created of an art student who can afford to spend thousands of dollars on a paint-splattered flea market find. It’s like all their customers are aspiring to be Charlotte in Tiny Furniture (a loft-dwelling trust fund dilettante).”

Soooo true, I know I would love to live in magical loft with velvet furniture covered with mixed upholestery and tiny dogs…

Pineapples are the New Bird

I really love those Brass Pineapples – but looking at them on Etsy, they are a little pricy, ranging from $90 – 189! But I found this cute trivet for $13

Target Strikes again…

Target has done it again. It has added more items to its stock that will make me forget I went into the store for conditioner and end up spending $100 on things that I need

Now & Then – Home Tour

It’s time for a little now and then here on the blog. When we first moved into the apartment it looked like this:

And up until last week, the office/dining room/sexy vinyl lounge looked like this…IMG_1407
But then I picked these up at Boomerangs in JP and all hell broke loose…

Tea for Two

New England is still trapped under 5 + inches of snow, so with that in mind… I thought this post would remind us how to stay cozy!
