I love these dotted ceramics by Matt Merkel-Hess at IKO IKO!

This past weekend Mr. Z and I took a very long bike ride to what we thought was Dead Horse Bay, but it turned out that it was the bay south of it. This bay still shored garbage and antique bottles, as well as some remains of its history as a landfill. It was still quite eerie and disgusting, but fascinating at the same time. We didn't (however) see any horse skeletons, as the real Dead Horse Bay supposedly has. Oh well, we still scavenged some antique bottles. I'm not sure what we'll do with them yet, but once the apartment is closer to complete, I'll get my (detail) creative gears rolling. For the record, I did boil the bottles to sterilize them as I'm a bit of a germ-a-phobe ;-)

That is... wall colors to be exact. Usually, I've lived in white and grey. I'm always afraid that I'll get tired of the color I choose for walls, but for some reason, our new place calls for COLOR. Yes, people always say that it's easy to paint over paint, but lemme tell you, it's not as easy as people make it sound. It's sort of a pain.. ok, a real pain. So, I just want to be able to live with the colors I choose for a bit and maybe, just maybe for a looooooong time (forever?). I saw this post on seesaw. with art work by Courtney Price "rectangular objects" that got my eye excited to go color crazy this weekend. Hopefully I'll be able to take some photos of the results.

Now that most of our boxes are unpacked, there's so much to do, so much to buy, so many decisions to make... and this is for a small space! I can't imagine what I'd do if I had a whole house to make my own. In the mist of looking for things to contain my sewing things, and possibly get me inspired to start making things again (eventually). I found this store on Etsy. I especially love the way the products are shot. The metal drawers caught my eye first.
