My dream work space

I don't remember where I stumbled across this image but I found it a month or two back and saved it for inspiration for my desk space in my new apartment. I love love love the organized chaos. And joy of joys my new apartment is almost here! I move Friday!

Sold out makes me sad

Drat! This is what I get for spending so much time away from my computer (poo on you karma)... I am head over heels for The Glamourai's necklace here but of course by the time I'd gotten to The Glamporium it had been snatched up.

I do quite like this lion necklace which is still there. It reminds me a bit of an ancient Chinese coin I have strung up on a chain. Except, you know, more stylish.

A new home

I am loving these cards from Other Such Things, which Modish posted last week as perfect for housewarming notes. And for those keeping score at home, we found the perfect new apartment and signed the lease on Friday! We couldn't be more thrilled. Unfortunately until I'm all moved in in a few weeks posting will probably continue to be sparse, but I promise to be back swinging soon!

Its rubs the lotion on its skin

Tuneage has been posting older tunes as of late giving me the perfect excuse to cue up one of my all-time favorites: the creeptastic "Lotion" by Greenskeepers, which homage-s the famous scene in Silence of the Lamb in which Buffalo Bill tells his captive to rub on the lotion. Disturbing? Yes. But beyond catchy.

Rose petals

Seeing illustrations on book pages always makes me think fondly of The Humument. This adorable one is by My Folk Lover. (Via MVSEVM)

Maison Martin Margiela jewelry

I love how MMM takes inspiration from everyday trinkets to make fine jewelry. I was crazy about that cork necklace last winter and then when I saw that gem necklace on Yes Please Mademoiselle, I had to go hunting for new offerings. Less abundant online now that eLuxury has left us, however I did find this airplane pin on Saks, which made me smile to think of my childhood excitement over plastic wings pins from flight attendants.

Lacy jewelry from Tree & Kimball

I'm crazy about the Uniform Project. Not only because Sheena provides an endless stream of inspiration for remixing my wardrobe but also because it introduces me to so many wonderful Etsy sellers. This lacy necklace is by Tree & Kimball and I've been ooh-ing and aah-ing over their lovely creations since I clicked over to their shop.

Ridiculously talented six year old

These gorgeous watercolors are by Kieron Williamson. HE IS SIX YEARS OLD. To quote Grey's Anatomy: "Seriously?!" (via Lost At E Minor)

Apartment hunt!

Forever has an end after all. My roomie and I's lease on our teeny tiny apartment is finally up at the end of this month so we've been off running looking for a new place. Unfortunately this means that posting may be a bit sparse while we're hunting. Here's to hoping that the new place is bigger than this shoebox we live in now! (image via)
