Pretty bird

I don't know what sparked it,  but I developed an immense adoration for birds.  I have a growing collection of bird necklaces, and, you may have noticed in my previous post of my apartment, they are pretty much everywhere ( my younger sister counted over 40 birds in our apartment once last year. I can assure you..the number has grown since!) 

Yes, I mostly mean decorations involving birds, but I really do adore the little creatures in general..its so funny to think that they're always around us, sitting outside our window, in the trees, hanging out by restaurant one really seems to notice their delicate little bodies hopping around, bobbing their head back and forth..they're just so sweet looking! Maybe I'm crazy for loving them so..but to me they're a symbol of innocence and..well, peace.  I'm sure its just me..

Anyway, I was thinking of what I wanted to post next and i decided that i wanted to share some of my favorite bird art- mostly found on etsy

so here are a couple of favorites:

I am so sad that this sweet little necklace has been sold! but it's still lovely lo look at!

This adorable print is hanging in my dining room!

and these brass bluebird charms are next on my to-buy list!!

this may become a habit-more birds to come!!

Our Little Home

Good evening friends! it is definitely past my bedtime, but I thought that since I was up, I would share with you some pictures of our little home. It is, infact, an apartment (on the 3rd floor, no less!) but nonethless it is our HOME and we love it- love in it, and fill it with lots of happiness and quite often at night, the smell of really darn good food:)  Plus we have a fantastic view of an open field with a single barn..and the sun always sets over that barn. what more could we ask for??

so here we go!

our living room:
    (our little friends in the window-they're actually from our wedding! my amazing mom made them! I know, totally tacky to have them up there with tape. but I promise, you can't see it ! and im too lazy to figure out another way....any ideas??)

Dining room:

(pieces of)the office -AKA my "craft room"/my ongoing project/my ongoing headache(!) a sweet gift from my amazing husband!:
these things don't look too pretty, but they mean a WHOLE lot to me..:)

Photo Clean-up

I am  trying to clean up the card on my poor Olly- she's about to bust with photos!! Here are a few- im not super SUPER proud of them, but they're aight..hope you enjoy?

this last one is a  SUPER mini preview of our new home-I will have a full tour up very soon!!

Rainy Days and Mondays..

Really aren't that bad. I wish someone had told Karen Carpenter this.

(This is here for no other reason other than ..well..I adore this picture. I can't figure out why but I really do.) 

Today is a very sleepy day- not to say that I am sleeping much today, I was up just as always, walking the dog half a sleep, getting ready for my work- day ( also half a sleep at this point) yogurt and coffee..maybe that will wake me up?

Well I'm about done with my coffee ( 2 and 1/2 hours later..) and I am still seconds away from a sweet sweet rainy day nap.

Sadly I am at work :)

but it is a lovely day, the lights seem dimmer, the world outside seems much calmer...and every so often something or other in this large room makes a slight whistling noise. I am enjoying this sleepy day, even though I am not at home relaxing. I am, in fact at work- listening to lovely music and reading even lovelier blogs...drinking 2 hour old coffee.. I think I will move to green tea next.

Tonight I plan on relaxing with the pups, the boy, and some Betty ( freakin) White on SNL ( yes, we missed it...I'm not an enormous fan of SNL- but Betty White makes it worth it!!) and I cannot wait until 6:00 ..and its not even 10:30!!

Until then I will sit at work and daydream about our trip to Colorado we're taking in about a month to celebrate this

and this!

I can't believe its almost been a year!!!! I love my guy ( and all these wonderful people!!)

(side note- listening to the Sufjan Stevens Pandora station while very work..probably not the smartest idea..its so soothing!)

Edit: finally got a new blog look! what do you think?I was going for ...not busy..:)
