my dream studio...
isn't this something? it's a prefab *fab* little structure called kithaus: 9'x13' that can "tuck into any area, just about anywhere you need a fully insulated, prewired comfortable space". all the pieces are cut and shipped to you and can supposedly be installed in a few days. wow. i'll take one.

who knew kitchen accessories could be so cool? even the oven mitts are attractive. maybe it would make me want to cook more... dwellstudio for target. a match made in heaven. check out the bed linens too.

hatch show print is one of the coolest printing presses around. since the late 1800s, they have designed and printed posters for the biggest names in music, and they still use the old- school method and original wood blocks. located in nashville. these are some of my favorites.
lucky for us, matt's sister worked there for a summer and made us this rad poster as a wedding gift. i finally just framed it and put it up. (yikes, 4 years later!)
so yesterday jacob, heather, and i went to the factory to see matt. and guess what i got to do?? design my own chandelier! so many options to choose from. it took a really long time for me. (surprise, surprise). it looks better in person without all the clutter, and this weekend i will post a picture of it hanging in our bedroom. and we still made it back in time to have a romantic sushi dinner at home.
il bacio (the kiss)
this is a small watercolor i made for matt as a christmas gift the semester i was studying in italy when we were dating. from "the kiss" by gustav klimpt. it was your classic girlfriend boyfriend gift. matt and i still laugh when we think about what he gave me in exchange. a dvd of meet the parents. in his defense, he says he didn't want to get me anything "too serious" and scare me off. needless to say he has really improved in the gift giving department.

pretty pillow. "lotus" on sale.
love this table.
i'm not really a pretty tea cup kind of girl, i'd rather drink my coffee in a ceramic mug that has a lot of irregularities. but this dainty little cup from anthropologie is so cute i couldn't help but notice. i like both the yellow and green version, equally.

these garlands make me happy. they are made by a french artist and you should really go check out her slideshow of all the cool places these garlands are photographed. i think they are so cute and fun, and another good way to use up my tiny paper scraps that i can't seem to ever throw out. this must be the reason why i've been holding on to them.
seen first on ohhappyday, my favorite blog
