At long last. Mail!


After almost two weeks without a single piece of mail, not even a bill (I was really starting to question my existence) I received all my internet purchases in one glorious day. The doorbell was ringing, the mailbox was creaking, my heart was soaring. These are some of the things I've been waiting for: 

I sighed heavily and said 'I LOVE my new iPhone case' about a hundred times the first day I had it. Just ask Mark. 

Mark and I both loves whales. This is our first print of, hopefully, many more to come. 

I love this photo so much. It makes me feel like singing the hills are alive while channeling my inner Heidi, and also reminds me of BC. Perf. 

This piece is by the lovely Pips Ebersole, purchased from Society6 (as are all the above pieces). We love it so much. Mark calls it 'our future home'

Pour le kitchen. I tend towards extreme carelessness in the kitchen, these rules are great reminders. From 3LambsIllustration etsy shop.

I am officially collecting interesting tea towels. I found some tomato and carrot ones from Crate & Barrel which I love as well. Is this my first collection? From ZenThreads etsy shop.

Technically, this came at the end of December, but I wanted to share because its so cooozy and soft to wear and people automatically think you're friendly. From HelloMerch, although, I didn't pay $50.00. 

This week, in the name of an approaching V-day, I downloaded some posters from the internet and got them printed at Staples. They now adorn our bedroom walls. I feel racy.

In a perfect world, I would have slowly collected amazing frames and then maybe spray painted them, or what have you, but in my haste, I rushed off to Ikea and bought all white frames. Boring, yes. Instant gratification? Also yes. 

I painted one kitchen wall yesterday. Covering up blue with white took around eighty coats. I accidentally started painting with an oil based paint. I had a sneaking suspicion when I felt really light headed and the paint stayed wet for a long time, and my suspicions were confirmed while trying to wash my hands. I basically just spread the paint up to my elbows. Luckily Daniel was out so I requested he bring home some paint thinner. Disaster averted. 

Also, we bought a clothes drying rack. Genius.
