I hate to point out the obvious, but...

...um, Samesies??

Ok, not quite...but I'm still feeling like the hotness for having a similar bike to MK.

PS-Second day bike ride was a success! I'm still completely awkward riding it, but I'm getting there!



Yes or No?

How do we feel about shoe jewelry??


I bought this 1986 beauty at the Cambridge Antique Market today. The man who runs the bike department was super-duper helpful, considering that I don't know the first think about bikes (let's put it this way: I asked how exactly to put a lock on a bike). This one is super simple and easy to ride, I think it was made by Sears in the 80s when they still manufactured bikes. Regardless, I rode it home with only one minor injury (I tried to carry it up the stairs to my apartment and there was a finger-pinching incident) and only slight embarrassment involving a bridge and some roller-bladers. It will take some getting used to, but as you can see in the picture above, it's the perfect season for outdoor experimentation!

New in the Store: BRONZE!

Stop by the STORE today!

"I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike..."

Tomorrow I'm hitting up the Cambridge Antique Market to search their vintage bike basement for the perfect bike. Although I'm sure my Boston summer won't look exactly like the images above, I'm hoping I can recreate something similar.

And now for your enjoyment:

Introductions: Love Anna James

I'm totally obsessing over this Parallel Lines piece by Love Anna James:

Upon further exploration, I stumbled upon some other beauties:

"Verona and Romeo and Juliet have been inspired by Anna's visits to Juliet's house in Verona, Italy. She is totally captivated by the graffiti covering the walls at the archway entrance, all of it being declarations of love by visiting lovers, of all ages, from all over the world. The colours, and the messages create completely unique images."


Lust: White on white

My friend, Kristi, playing harp for the All American Rejects on David Letterman last night! It appears to have caused quite the commotion...

My Worst Fear

Now that my hair is fairly short...

I want...

This chair

This North End apartment

This room (somehow mixed with the apartment above, of course)

This wallpaper (Not sure how this would work with my dream home described above...I'll figure out the details later)

And last but not least, this gig!


Weekend Recap

I had a great weekend...how about you??

Assembled my new "Jewelry Studio" (loving all the storage space my new drawers provide!)

Spring Cleaning (Pictured: The shoe/closet organization portion)

Lounging in the sun, enjoying the beautiful spring weather!

Breaking in my new "studio" space (and creating samples of all the new Bronze items!)

One Person's Trash, Another Person's Treasure

During my trip to Nashville a month ago, I went to the Fusion 2009 festival to see a friend's band play. There were tons of vendors participating in a silent auction for charity and I stumbled upon the b.photography booth. Something about her photos set you on edge while also showing the beauty in things that were once cherished items, but now stand abandoned and dilapidated.
