Home sweet home

After spending some time this weekend with beautiful friends in their beautiful apartments, I was overcome with a serious bout of home envy.  As a remedy, I hit the web in search of some new wares for my new (and sparsely decorated) place.  While I didn't make any purchases (yet!)  I thoroughly enjoyed "window" shopping, and I can't wait to plan some projects to spruce up my apartment.  Here are just a few favorite finds...what do you think?

I must just be in the mood to buy kitchen accessories, because that's all I wanted to look at this morning.  (But there's nothing wrong with that, right?)  There's just something cheerful about colorful kitchen accessories, and they make cooking and baking all the more enjoyable.  I've also got a few ideas for home sewing projects forming in my little head, so I hope I will have time to get to them soon.    

After a wonderful weekend, it's well past my school-night bedtime.  I hope you had a wonderful weekend, as well!  Thanks for stopping by!

Back in the saddle

After a much needed (and event-filled) hiatus, I'm back at the (computer) keys from a new vantage point (Cleveland) with my same old buddy (see below.)

Although we've made quite a move, and lots of things have changed, many things haven't (including my inclination to parenthetical I'm sure you've noticed.)  But to recap the last month or so: Sean, Ollie, and I loaded up my little car and drove it all the way from Florida to Pennsylvania.  After a blissful week in Pennsylvania with our families, Sean hopped on a plane back to Florida, and my mom and I packed up my little car (yet again) and drove to my new home in Cleveland, Ohio.  So for now, I'm re-adjusting to the student life, and trying to shake this "Old Lady Complex" that I have going on (which developed as a result of the few years that I squeezed between the completion of my Bachelor's and the beginning of my Master's.)  But I'm having a blast exploring my new city, making new friends, and finding my place in my new school.

In other news, among the other amazing gifts I received for my birthday, I was given a gorgeous new dress form, and a new point-and-shoot camera.  I'll be back to post more details later, but here are just a few sneak peek shots of my gift (with my gift), of my swanky new Little Italy apartment, and of a project that I'll be back to share soon!  Enjoy!

I'll be back with more news shortly, (and I've been stockpiling a few projects that I will share with you soon) but for now: it's a school night, and officially past my bedtime.  Happy Sunday!
