Pure Magic

This made an otherwise bummer night quite amazing....two of my favorite bands right now, with the one and only Bob Dylan...unbelievable! I wish I could've been there.

Too bad, so sad :(

I'm going through some difficult stuff right now, 
and as a result of my recent breakup, 
I will not be able to stay in my pretty apartment anymore :(

I wish I could, I spent so much time and care on putting everything together
and making it feel like home. Now I can hardly be there, let alone afford it by myself.

So, R.I.P my first pretty little perfect apartment...
I have a good time these past two (yes, only 2) months I lived in you.

My very own kitchen to cook up all my meals and baked goods! Loved it!
Comfy bedroom
Craft Corner!

Pretty walk-in closet! Gahddd, I'm going to miss this part DEARLY.
Living room, in my favorite shades of green and all retro furniture.
Favorite chair.


soooo sad. ugh!

Never posted, but should've...

We had these taken for gifts for our family for the holidays , I loved how they turned out.
Our friend Amanda Flinn-Simmons took them...she's a talented lady. Check her out on Flickr !

Long time, no blog :(

Between work, moving, and the holidays I haven't had very much time to sit and collect my thoughts let alone blog. However, its a new year, and one of my goals is to take more time to blog! Also, we're instating craft nights! So many exciting new things!
The biggest of which has been...
Andrew and I got our own apartment!!!....and I might even go so far as to say that its getting pretty darn cute.
Its a work in progress, but its definitely feeling like home <3

Best vintage chair find ever,  handmade owl&hedgehog pillows, and our budding record collection!
Owlsowlsowlssss. And an interesting lil gnome ;)
I will be doing all my cooking/baking in this new pretty kitchen :) Fulllll of my Merry Mushroom collection!
Prettiest waffle-maker around!
 (LOVE this new Crosley we got!)

 Just a few sneak peeks for those of you who haven't seen it in person! More to come when we get more of our decorations put up....
