stopping to smell the flowers...


ok so technically most orchids don't have a scent (but some do!) but i really love this photo that i took with my handy camera phone at my local sunday  farmers market and thought it was fitting for today's post...  orchids and peonies are my favorite flowers and today i am having such a wonderful day and really stopping and taking a moment to take it all in!

well, i have to say this is probably the best wednesday on record for me! hump day?? i think not! i thought my week was already off to a pretty amazing start when i learned that centsational girl shared my brass pendant diy on her site.... and then today apartment therapy posted my wall painting diy on theirs! i mean... AMAZING! i have been following that site for ages and dreaming of living in some of the spaces they have featured and to be included in it is really really cool! and THEN to top it all off lindsey at better after posted both my wall painting diy AND my brass pendant diy on hers! well, needless to say i am floating on a cloud! and all of the really nice comments from the readers have been great to see!

lots of folks have posted questions on paint colors, etc from the apartment therapy story and i  want to let you know that you can go here to get the paint color and stencil info from my hicks hexagon painting project.... also, lots of people have asked where my bed and bedding are from... well, the bed i bought on clearance from a store in venice ca that has closed but serena and lily offers some amazing upholstered headboards as well (pricey but beautiful!)... and i have seen some pretty awesome online tutorials on making your own if you're feeling crafty.... the bedding is from west elm which i have to say is one of my very favorite stores around these days!

interning yesterday was cool because i spent a lot of time working on revising plans in cad just in time for class last night... auto cad class was ok... well, except for the fact my head was spinning when i left it at 10... class ends in a week so there's a reason to celebrate!

i am in the midst of helping lots of friends reorganize their lives these days and one of my projects involves helping an unemployed friend downsize from a one bedroom apartment to just one bedroom... it's a big project involving ebay, craigslist and a big upcoming yard sale in two weeks... but hopefully she will have a weight lifted from her shoulders and lots of cash weighing down her wallet....

so, for those of you just tuning in and wanting to know more about me you can by going here... oh and if you didn't already know... i created a facebook page... check it out and "like" it! and follow me on twitter

until next time!

the almost 40 year old intern
