my dream desk:
My talented jewelry, clothes, everything maker, Nova Colette, just released her first beautiful line of jewelry. Her metal + enamel work have been shown in many art exhibits around New York as “Domestic Armor” and she’s now selling this ‘domestic armour’ on her Etsy page. I highly recommend you take a peek.
A few favorites include: carved carnelion disk necklace
and the oxidized sterling fleur de lis
…In the mood for a prance around the park and the farmers market. It’s time to buy that bunch of peonies before they disappear! And finally… would love to sport this outfit to match my mood – love this flattering Duskin dress, but would have to pair it with the awesome, distressed boat shoes and the APC toggle (I ❤ toggles) closed bag to balance out the girliness.
When I was 6 my family moved from England to Florida. My parents shipped our piano, their record collection, their book collection, shelving units and numerous gigantic world maps, which ended up lining our upstairs hallway. Although I despised History class and anything else worldly related at school, I remember standing in our upstairs hallway many times staring at these huge maps and never, ever getting sick of them.
Moseyman and I purchased a few great vintage looking maps on our recent US road trip and I’ve been eager to hang them in our new place. Problem is, one of them is 50″ X 32″ and it seems next to impossible to find an affordable wood frame that large.
Today I saw these photos and liked the idea of simply hanging it with 2 rods and a string. Are there any other hanging solutions?
We finally started to unpack and find places for our things this weekend. It’s gonna take a while to build it up, find furniture and decorate, but here’s a small peek at our apartment’s starting point. It’s a little Ikea-ed in our bandroom/office at the moment, but next weekend calls for a visit to the Brooklyn Flea…
We flew across the Atlantic, drove around the country and now, finally, Moseyman, dog and I have found a place to settle! 1 block from the park and loads of old character, this apartment is going to suit us well. Today we’re trekking out to Ikea for the 3rd time in 1 week (embarrassing to admit) where we’ll hopefully pick up a boring lot of storage shelves. Anyone know where we can find an amazing but affordable Danish modern, dark wood bed frame (with matching side tables and dresser)? Man we are so unprepared…
Next post I promise to have pics or some sort of visual…
