claire nereim

i am thinking about these lovely posters by claire nereim lately. i love the idea of getting all of my groceries at the farmer's market and thus eating only seasonal foods.

hot tape

man, i have been seeing posts everywhere about this awesome tape! i pretty much agree with everyone else that it's the coolest thing around, but how can we use it? we all need to come up with some new craft form that requires lots of hot tape. ideas? tape shirts? tape wallpaper? tape wreaths?

i love tile

my mom is visiting in a few weeks and staying with me and all i can think about is that i need to renovate my apartment. ha! i don't own it and it needs a ton of work, but someday i would love to learn how to tile and make a beautiful entry way or kitchen like these beautiful shots by martyn thompson.
