love and other drugs

in theaters november 24

finally, a rom com that i'm looking forward to.
it's been a while.



red wine . white wine

let me just walk down into my wine cellar and grab it for you.

yeah, i wish.


loving you for you

this goes out to my love...
mr cameron murray.

yes, yes, indeed.
oh, how i love you so.


re-visiting the past . eames case study

i'm at the parental's house right now trying to clean out and throw out the junk i don't need to be storing here anymore...I took a break and now I'm browsing my photos on their computer...found these three from the eames case study house that i thought i'd post for my future convenience. i've done a previous posting about my visit--but these photos weren't included. enjoy.

simple & beautiful.
sometimes it's best to keep things from being complex.


dancing house . frank gehry

a co-op design between Franky Ghery & Vlado Milunić
prague . czech republic
started in 1992
completed in 1996

whimsical and mysterious.
...playing with the traditional building surrounding it...

loves it.



schwinn exerciser

schwinn exerciser from grandpa murray's place in klamath falls, or.
ummm, i love it.



home . is where the heart is

home is whenever i'm with you.


levanger mirror . ikea

got a hallway or room that needs a strong accent wall that will make a huge impact?
the levanger mirror collection from ikea would look AMAZING grouped together.
this goes especially if your shooting for a shabby chic or vintage look.
rather, if you're going for a unique contemporary look, you can mix and match these mirrors as well.

only have money for one?
that's fine, it'll still look fabulous by itself.

the mirrors range from $79-$99.

you buy the mirrors, i'll hang them for you.

it's the small things . that make me happy

ohh, my mini indigenous bouquet, how i love you so.

on our day off, cameron and i went for a bike ride around miramar lake.
i ended up gathering these up for a little decor in our kitchen.
who knew it would make me so happy every time i see it?
it's been a few days since, & the smell still reminds me of the bike ride we took.
better yet, this arrangement will last a long time since it grew without depending on constant water supply.

lesson of this blog posting is as follows...
surround yourself with things that make you happy.
take memorabilia from different experiences and incorporate them into your everyday life. it will help!
