around the apartment

Sometimes I get so use to my surroundings I forget to notice all the lovely things that dwell in my dwelling. These are some of my favorites...

My Winnie the Pooh Umbrella. When I was little it was my favorite. My mom bought this for me when I was in 3rd grade. I've used it ever since.

Dried flowers from the farmers market : )

My roommate Mallory made this frame for me last year. It was one of the most thoughtful gifts I've ever received. She decorated the frame with some of my favorites like... The British Office, Bora Bora, James hotttttie Franco, Steve Miller Band, etc. I put in an old photo and a recent photo of my dad in it. I don't know if you can see it, but it's from my dad's high school days, and he is rockin the paisley shirt and eating an ice cream bar. awwww!

This isn't actually mine. It's Mal's. But I like it and sometimes drink my coffee out of it. Handmade! The colors are so perty. My roommate Lauren bought it for Mal when she was in Perugia, Italy this summer. So cute!

First of all, I love our green wall. I hated it when we first moved in. But it has grown on me. And love love love the chair. My mom bought it at a yard sale for just a few bucks. You go mom!

This is Ophelia. And this picture doesn't do her justice. This too belongs to Mal. I named her after the character from Hamlet. I think I found it fitting for some reason. I'm not really sure what that reason was. But anyway, at every hour she plays a new instrumental song and the middle part opens up and spins and and and it's just awesome! My favorite song she plays is My Heart Will Go On. oh celine.

This is our montage of posters/record albums in the family room. The framed albums were gifts from Mal's older sister Michaela. Sweet gift, right? We got a lil France, Journey, Elton, Billy Joel, John Mellencamp, and the Memorial Union Terrace. I like the blue theme we got going on on this wall.

A mug with my grandma Q's picture on it. This photo was in the newspaper back in the 40s for her engagement announcement! Isn't she darling?

Starry Starry Night, You never get old. And again, the green wall.


  1. What a great collection! Really stylish. Surprised your little umbrella has lasted so long! Wow!

  2. You have such great stuff! I love the umbrella. Winnie the Pooh's adorable and that umbrella's just as cute!
