dear birthday



I keep going back to look at these beautiful tops by Valerie of Dear Birthday. Aren't they just so pretty and unique?

I mentioned it on her blog, and it's obvious to anyone who has taken a look around here, but I just love clothing displayed simply on a hanger against an empty wall, or against wood. One of the first things I did when we moved into our current apartment two years ago was hang a little white hook on the wall. I hope that if we ever find a new place to live, we'll have a sweet spot for it.

  4. I know! that raw edged braided trim is so pretty!
    How many places have you guys looked at so far? I HATE apartment hunting! It's so stressful! Keep your chocolate intake steady, Anabela!

  6. I'm glad you ladies like them!

    April: We haven't looked at toooooo many (6?) but there have been a few rejections right from the start -- like the one who was about to set up a viewing until I said I had a cat and she claimed there are allergies "in the house," so no cats (I know it's illegal for them to kick you out for having a pet but I wanted to be honest). Also a bunch who just never responded to phone calls. I honestly thought it would be better this time around, but I'm stubbornly clinging to my standards and it's going to get me into trouble (sorry if I don't want to live in a dump). I can't think about it too much or I will be super bummed. We have one month!

  7. hi anabela! thank you so much for the sweet mention!

    it's funny you mention a white hook because i have one with a little fleur de lis on top that i thought of hanging for these, but decided to wait until we paint so that it will actually show up.

    good luck in your apartment search! we took a place we weren't *in love* with a few months ago and it's proving to be lots of work. best to be picky, i say!

  8. Nails do just fine in a pinch, I think! Oh and Valerie, I did really love the pictures of you on your bed. They were so great, so cozy.

    Thank you for your well-wishes!
