motel mondays: part four

welcome to another edition of motel mondays! i hope you all are enjoying these vintage motel signs as much as me... and if not, i guess you could always ignore my monday posts... so, this fab motel, the saharan motor hotel, is located on sunset boulevard, on the edge of hollywood.  i love this sign and can't decide if i like the view from the east side better than the west.... oh, and when  you look closely you can see that they incorporated 6 stars into the sign... does that technically mean this is a six star hotel???  genius!  and yeah i thought 5 stars was as high as it goes but a six star hotel is SUPER fancy, right?

well, interning has been pretty great these last few weeks... there is a lot of excitement in the office (and you can't help but get caught up in it all!) because THE designer's new venture (which is amazing by the way!) is launching this week.  seeing the whole project evolve from just drawings on paper (when i started interning) to now is pretty cool! and even better to know that i have contributed to it through various interning related projects and tasks...  i am really looking forward to seeing what my day at the office tomorrow brings!

a good friend of mine who is pregnant was just admitted to the hospital for bedrest for the next ten weeks. YIKES! anyhow, i hung out in her room over the weekend and we played some scrabble and discussed ideas for making her hospital room cuter since she's going to be there for a while.  i don't know what it is with the folks designing hospital rooms these days... they are so not cute and i feel badly for anyone that has to spend days or weeks in one of them. a bad floral wallpaper from the early 90's and a boring dry erase board does not make a pretty room!  anyhow, if any of you all have some ideas please send them my way. we are trying to come up with stuff that won't damage the walls, etc and possibly make that hospital bill any higher...

i took the above photo last week while out with a friend.  it was such an "only in l.a." moment when i witnessed the guy in a suit at the table next to us chatting on this shiny gold retro phone handset.  it just made me giggle... i feel like it was only last year when it was all the rage to have a super teeny tiny phone.  now we need a big handle to lug around with it?? love it!

another groovy diy coming later this week so stay tuned!  last week i was pretty excited when the 99 cent only store posted my starburst urchin sculpture diy on their facebook page. awesome, right?

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

until next time...
