Lately I’ve been inspired by big tables and maps. These two photos say everything for me.
I might also add that I adore that little blue kitchen in the top photo (as well as the little bar cart/shelf over to the right). As far as the map goes, I recently received a modern Columbus map from These Are Things, but there’s something about topographic maps that amaze me. I’m surrounded by them while working for the Department of Natural Resources so I’m keeping my eye out for one. What inspires you when thinking about your current or future home?

Hello world. I hope your short weekend felt longer than usual. The photo above was found via Pinterest but originates here.

- I love Gwen. I just saw “The Talented Mr. Ripley” at the drive in and she’s great. I may also be biased. I’ve seen Coldplay seven times in concert so her relationship with Chris Martin may have influenced me.

I usually pump out links to share on Mondays but I’ve been behind in almost everything lately. My room is covered in dirty (and clean) clothes, I’m battling a head cold and I’m juggling three jobs! Anyways, if you’re bored at work or waiting for the weekend to roll around…enjoy these links!
