too cheesy to call this a poster post..?

i am obsessed (yes, another obsession) with posters and papers and fabrics - anything i can frame and hang or lay or lean somewhere. my home is starting to get a little overflowed (is that a word?) with pictures and frames and round cardboard tubes filled with things yet to be framed.

knowing this is the first step.
...but i still have yet to conquer my obsession.

i want these:

oh, ms. chase, how i heart thee.

i have recently re-purchased the my so-called life series on dvd (because i had it on vhs and thought it time to move on...). needless, to say, i have been watching it time and time again. (those of you who dont love that show - i do not understand you.) reliving all of my favorite outfits of angela's (and rayanne's) that i copied back in the day and im realizing how much i still love them...and plan on copying once more...maybe a select few with some slightly modern alterations.
...also, being from seattle - her slouchy/grungy style is really close to my heart. *toothy grin

a different time

so, im eternally told that im a hippie. i dont wear headbands (those kind) or bellbottoms (anymore) and i dont give a peace sign to everyone (unless im making fun of my asian friend...please dont take offense.) i guess its because i eat granola and quinoa and recycle like theres no tomorrow...because of said fact...that there may not be. heh. and i guess i was a vegetarian/border-line vegan for a while. (thats pretty much over...for the most part)...(well, i guess theres not really a "for the most part" in that type of situation, eh.) maybe its because i have several pictures where im hugging trees. maybe its because i want to live in a van and just drive wherever the.....i just love travel. altho, i guess it must be said that last halloween, my boy and i decided last minute to go to a costume party and i decided to be a hippie...because i actually didnt have to buy anything.
i guess i see it when i come across photos of me like this: post for the hippies.....

almost too much.

alicia bock is a fabulously fabulous photographer (not to mention a fabulous blogger).
i dont even know where to start...i am obsessed with her views of paris and they make me want to return and go to each place she photographed. i love her flora [period] and i adore a gal who adores polaroids. !
...and her textures are amazing!

i dont know which one (or five) to buy first. !!!

oh, happy day.

do you know how excited i am? so!

problem one ~ i have been planning to make a hanging lamp for about 2 months now. my only dilema: which of my two ideas to choose from.

problem two ~ i have loads of sweaters that are too small to wear (or too worn out) but too cute to get rid of...and i dont want to do the tired ol' idea of turning them into pillows. ok - its not such a tired idea, and actually, i might, in fact, make a few pillows...but still, it didnt satisfy me.

problem solver ~ my new country living magazine came in today with a gem of an idea! a sweater-covered lamp shade. ! and quite a few other insanely fantastic ideas.
