Start Spreading the News, I'm leaving today...

Friends - today marks the beginning of my big adventure.  I'm finally leaving Chicago and moving back to New York.  I've decided to change the focus of this little space to document the journey.

The first year I lived in NY wasn't so great.  I worked crazy hours and didn't enjoy it as much as I should have.  I promise to do better this time around.

Plus I need to focus on something or I fear I'll just miss my dear ole Chicago.

Velo Towel

I would buy this adorable towel from Velo at Branch, but would feel terrible using it to wipe up spills. 


I'm loving this gray dress from LAMade: 

 If only I weren't saving all my pennies for the move...

Wall Decorations

Did anyone else see this picture on Design Sponge and fall in love with the animal bust made of what looks like book pages?  Love. Love. Love.

DIY Dye Job on my Ikea Couch

I've had white Ikea Ektorp couches for the last two years, and the white has certainly seen better days.  After I move, I think I'm taking the plunge and dying the white slipcovers a navy or gunmetal gray color.  

No more anxiety while the boyfriend drinks red wine on the couch, thank you very much.

Jonathan Adler Wallpaper

I'm preparing for a big move to a new apartment!  A side effect of this whole process is that I now obsessively peruse design blogs and stores.  

I just found this great Jonathan Adler design PDA wallpaper, that's free!  I can't afford his actual wallpaper (a girl can dream!) but at least my blackberry is going to be chic.

This makes me happy:

Sailor Knots

I know I'm late to the game, but I love-love-love sailor knot jewelry lately.  I found a bracelet for 2 bucks (!) at a general store in Brooklyn and now I'm hooked.

Two things that fuel this obsession:
First, this beautiful necklace from Brooklyn Rehab on Etsy.  

And second, this great tutorial on how to DIY to your hearts content:

I'm back!

Apologies for the extended absence - friends.  I'm not sure what exactly caused my lengthy vacation.  Lets blame summer generally, and various big life happenings I'll clue you in to later. 

For the time being, I'm happy to be back posting and I'll leave you with my favorite summer print by Thomas Prior, available on 20x200.
