Things I Love Thursday.

Another weekly installment.

1. Photography:

I recently worked on a photography project, and it was so much fun! It made me realize how much I love taking photos, and how much I miss getting lost in the darkroom for hours. Now, I get lost in Photoshop, but nothing compares to the darkroom. I was looking back through the photos I took in my college classes, and I love them. Figured I might as well show you…

2. The 60’s Era.

I have become fascinated with all things vintage, and love the design, clothing, furniture and architecture from that era.

(The clothing from this era is my personal favorite, such beautifully crafted garments)

(I love the Shell chair. The boyfriend and I are currently on the hunt for one)

(Twiggy, what a 60’s staple she was!)

3. Eichler homes-

Rolling with the 60’s era, I love the design of the Eichler homes, they were very innovative and aesthetically pleasing. My Dad actually lived in one when he was a kid…which makes them even more awesome!

Hats off To Ya…

Yay, today was a very productive day! I had a morning workout dance party, lunch with my beau, I planted some seedlings in the backyard, worked on a photography project, and finished my DIY hat collection. Pheeeewwwy… I’m pooped from my busy day!

I’m not sure if any of you are aware, but I have a serious obsession for hats.¬†Ever since I can remember I have loved them…It’s just my thing. You know what I’m talking about, we all have that one “thing” we love. Whether it be shoes, bags, etc,etc… Well, hats are definitely my thing…and will probably always be. Case in point, I have acquired quite a collection, and I’ve been trying to find a way to show them off. I know I know, believe me I wear them… All of them. But they are just so beautiful not to showcase.

Cruising through blogs I found a very simple and fun DIY project. Listed below is what you will need…it’s an extremely long list so get your pen and paper ready.

Strong double-sided tape.

Laundry Clips. I used clips from an Ikea photo holder.

Did I trick you? I tend to do that. (Ha…I actually never do that.)

Tape the backside of the clip and place on the wall. Clip your hats and Viola…Magic that looks something like this:

(This is just a 1/4 of them, I’m currently working on the other half of my wall now.)

(Hooray for Hats!)

(The hat with the feathers was my Mom’s, which makes it all the more special)

(Niko likes to pretend he’s helping…)

So what’s your “one thing” ? And do you like to showcase it in a creative way? Hopefully I’ve inspired you to partake in a DIY project, because obviously some of them are quite simple, and can be really quite fun! Any plans for the weekend? I have a list of things I would like to do. I think a good starting point is a night of dancing with the girls! I got my dancing shoes on, let’s go!

10 things i LOVE Tuesday.

I’ve noticed a lot of my favorite blogs do something like this weekly, so why not incorporate it into my blog as well? Hope you enjoy!

1. Candles…

I’ve been buying them up like the world is going to end…but I love the way my flat looks when its all lit with candles galore. So relaxing and comforting, not to mention my house smells amazing! It’s perfect on a rainy night with a boyfriend to cuddle up with…just sayin’.

2. Creamy Neutrals, sheer, and light pink…

Lingering Still

…Or all of these combined. Mmm…loving all the nudes and neutrals. There is just something so organic about it…and of course completely sexy!

Freedom

3. Raindrops…

Sacramento has been getting insane amounts of rain lately, and I don’t know about you…but I am loving it. Not necessarily having to tromp around in it…Well not without my fabulous vintage rain boots of course. I especially love it because I have never really lived in the rain before. I am a true mountain snow girl, but not anymore.

R.A.I.N

I just love the sound of the rain hitting my umbrella, or my window when I’m trying to fall asleep, the smell of the wet pavement and trees, so refreshing and rejuvinating. I just love it!

4. Lace…

It makes me feel so romantic and feminine…How could you not feel beautiful wrapped in lace?

5. Chai Tea…

I am usually quite the coffee drinker. I couldn’t even begin my day without a cup of caffeine in my system. But all that has ended. Coffee has unfortunately been causing immense pain with my IC (Interstitial Cystitis), so I switched to Chai which I make in my espresso machine. Steamed milk goodness…YUM!

6. Vintage Owls…

Vintage owl necklaces to be exact. I have become seriously obsessed with them. I am currently searching for the perfect owl necklace… So if you find one I might like, it would be greatly appreciated if you let me know. hehe…

Happy Birthday Mommy :L

7. Eames Shell Chair…

I am in LOVE with this chair. The boyfriend and I have been dreaming about getting one for a couple years now. We have been scouring antique faire’s, thrift shops, and mid century consignment stores hoping one day we will find one. Until then, I can just dream.

8.¬† Vintage rain boots…

I just found a fabulous pair. Don’t you just love them? And boy oh boy have they come in useful the past couple weeks!

Healing Rain

9. Hat collection…

I’ve acquired quite the hat collection over the years, and it is time I show them off. I am in the midst of a project to showcase all of my wonderful hats… Here is what I am looking at doing:

10. Blogging…

Yes, It’s true…I love blogging.

Sometimes I feel that it can be more of a job then a fun pastime, and most of the time I wonder why anyone would want to read anything I have to say. I hear crickets…do you hear crickets? Anyway, I am not into blogging for anyone but myself and I’ll leave it at that.

So what are the 10 things you love right now?
