floral crown.

floral crowns/garlands are allllllll the rage right now.  my trendy little sister, molly ann, obviously wanted in on the action.  after perusing the four-story topshop during my last trip to nyc, i regrettably left their garland due to the crazy price (not too crazy, but astronomical to the everyday diy’er).  naturally, i began googling/pinteresting away to find the best way to recreate this boho accessory.  little did i know, there was an excellent tutorial on one of my fave blogs, bleubirdvintage.typepad.com (thank you, whit, for introducing me to the amazingness that is james’ blog).  straight to michael’s i went, and, a few hours later, i created the below. obviously, we couldn’t go without a photo shoot including the inspiration herself.
*disclaimer: the project was a bit more time consuming/trickier than i expected, but totally worth it in the end*

new home. new chapter.

i haven’t posted in quite some time, but i wanted to share a sneak peek into my new home.  after living in a dark apartment in short north (tinted windows get old), i have moved into a light-filled apartment in the suburbs of good ole’ new albany.  after walking into my new place, my first thought was that of carrie’s when she walked into “heaven on fifth” and exclaimed, “so THIS is where they keep the light!”  needless to say, i’m pretty darn happy.  after two long days, my apartment is situated and all of my old pieces look new in the bright light of sunshine (kitchen and living room to come).
