Thanks to swiss miss, when I am wondering if Mercury is in Retrograde I can go straight to www.ismercuryinretrograde.com. This week has been nuts. It makes perfect sense.

I never in a million years thought I would be excited to have a fireplace in California. My dad burns wood to heat the entire house back home. But I have to say the fireplace is probably one of my favorite things about my new place. It takes cozy to a whole new level.

I have been on a DIY kick since I moved into my new apartment. I take such pride in creating something special instead of running out to the store. Pinterest has been the best source of inspiration. I always begin there and then follow the links until I am too tired to stay awake any longer. Here are some of my favorites leading right into the holiday season.
Are you making holiday cookies? Mix it up with these Lace Doily Cookies.
Glass Jar Typography. Tape the paper inside and then trace with glass paint pen.
A hand painted mug would make a great gift!
Urchin Starburst Sculptures for Under $5.00! Decor you can leave up past the holidays.

I don't like numbers. However, I like patterns in numbers. Like for instance, today is 11.11.11. And I happened to move into my apartment on 1.1.11. Even more fun, my parking spot is 111. I am loving it. I'll be sure to make a wish at 11:11 as well. Here are a couple snapshots from my new apartment. I found this lamp on ebay. I'm so in love with it. Kind of reminds me of this shade, no? And snapshot 21 is a rug I am working on. It's all coming along so well I can't wait to have everyone over!

Happy Monday! I'm getting settled into my new place and absolutely in love with all the space I have now. Walk-in closets. Entry-way closets. Linen closets. Big love.
I've been listening to a lot of Raphael Saadiq while unpacking. Check out his video for Movin Down the Line.
I am also loving this image. Gram is a big advocate of the 'red dress'. She heard on Tyra that wearing red will get a lot of attention from the opposite sex. I'm not so sure I need that but I sure would love to twirl in this one.

I just moved into a new place! I am so in love with it. Lots of painting, hunting for furniture and downright organizing my stuff into my (much larger) new spot. While I was between places I was taken in by my friends and I got to spend an entire week with this pup. He is one of the coolest dogs I know and who could complain about this view over Venice Beach.
