First off, let me just tell you that Pottery Barn is one of my loves. Walking into the actual store is like walking into a world of bliss. Rich wood furniture. Gorgeous bedding. Stunning table top arrangements. Clever desk organizers. I've always been a big fan of home decor, and can't wait to design the interior of my own home one day. Being seventeen though, I've got a while to dream and be inspired.
Anyways, back on track. The newest copy of PB Teen came in the mail today. I saw this and just about jumped out of my skin. Tree branches around my wall decal. Why didn't I think of this? I'm really considering this idea for my desk area. The only thing holding me back is, how in the world did they get the branches on the wall?! I am however a little anxious about the idea of bolting trees into the sheet-rock. Does anyone have any other ideas?

I was reading through Carlotta's blog earlier and found something remarkable. Polyvore. Honestly, I've never heard of it before. So I've been playing around with it for the past few hours. I will go ahead and just admit that this could will most definitely easily become an addiction for me. You'll be seeing some of my trend set designs here in the future.

People. It's 71 degrees right now. Seventy one. I almost feel guilty sitting inside blogging when the weather is begging me to come out. This is not typical winter weather, but it is being thoroughly enjoyed.

I finished Marley and Me. I completely teared up at the end. The feeling of loosing a pet is one I know, and its awful. This book is one of my all time favorites. I've dug into another one already. Eat Pray Love. My mom watched the movie- I haven't seen it yet. Sadly, I don't think I've ever read a book before watching the film. This is apparently the best way to go about it- so I will. This is a good novel. A little too new age for my taste, but a sweet story really. The author describes food like no other. I swear my mouth was watering as I read the chapter about the Pizzeria in Italy.

We have a new mouse. Not the fluffy white sort, the slick black-smells-like-a-new-car kind. I'm here laughing at myself, it feels so out of the ordinary using a new model. I guess I'll get use to it.


  1. i discovered polyvore last week and agree that it is awesome! it is embarrassing how many hours i spend on it a week. :)

    i hope you enjoy eatpraylove! let us know how you like it.

  2. I love the branches on the wall. Creative! I have no idea how you would do that though. You are brilliant though, M! I just know you can figure it out. I started Eat, Pray and Love and thought the same thing. New agey. Not me!

  3. First off, you are one mature and lovely 17 year old with great taste!! :) Love the tree branch idea! Maybe you could wrap the corners with some heavy string to form a frame, then hang it just like a frame That way you just put one hole on the wall. just an idea.

    And I loved the movie Marley and Me and I want to read the book! Glad you enjoyed it :)
