splashes of colour

A few things around my apartment.


I finally hung my paint-by-numbers in the hallway, with room to allow for more (I've noticed fake paint-by-numbers in stores -- is that going to make me feel embarrassed of this mini collection?)


Pretty vintage pillow -- I think it looks like something you can get at Anthropologie, except that this one was only $12


 My hankie collection is starting to grow! The top one came from Effie and I think it is just perfect

    Hi - I've been lurking for the past few weeks and thought that I'd 'delurk' to let you know (in case you didn't), that you got a blog shout-out today:

  9. Thanks, everyone! I'm glad you found something you liked in these pictures.

    Michelle: Wow, thanks for that! How sweet.

    Caitlin: I know! We're lucky to get so much light. Yeah, totally fake ones! Urban Outfitters has them right now. They're not on the website, though.

    Nancy: Yeah, that's right! I have lots of double sided tape around and it comes in handy (also I'm not worried about the paint in this apartment since it's not in the best shape to begin with!).
