a little like freedom

These are the things that I find on the internet and think, “well gd, I wish I woulda thought of that.” Corbin LaMont created this project, A Little Like Freedom, in which she printed 20 copies of 25 different posters and hung them on the streets of Portland. Each poster is a dedication to one person she has encountered in her life. As she describes it:

“This is about your ex-lovers, your ex-darlings and your unrequited love…These are the thoughts, memories and unsaid words left behind. The afterthoughts. One sentence for one person who has been in your life.”

She did the first 25 and then started accepting admissions, so the last 25 are reader-submitted. And they’re all so good. Pretty effing brilliant. It’s definitely worth taking a looksie.

some pretty for your monday

Food photographer and blogger Katie Quinn Davies recently made a trip to The White House, a bed and breakfast in Daylesford, Victoria, Australia. She snapped some photos while there and I stumbled across them today. This place looks amazing. It’s definitely added to my “hopefully one day…” list. These are just a few of my favorites, but you can see all of them here.

Have you seen the IKEA Family LIVE website? I just discovered it and it’s a collection of all the homes that have been featured in the IKEA LIVE magazine. It’s all about real homes done by real people, so I think it’s a great source for practical and attainable ideas. Here are a few of my favorite pics from the site.

well, that’s pretty

by kmcopeland

I might be incredibly late in sharing this gem, but I just discovered the online shop Pigeon Toe and pretty much love everything in it.  All items are hand crafted and, as they describe them, “naturally imperfect, casually irreverent and playfully charming.” Their mission is to provide modern pieces that evoke the feeling of an heirloom from the past. I’d have to say they nailed it, wouldn’t you?

The selection of perfectly minimalist kitchenware at Anaise is quite pretty, don’t you think?

Birds on Wood Panel 3

I stumbled across greasychickenface (an artist, not an actual one) on one of my new favorite blogs,Covet Garden, and couldn’t get her cheerful bird prints out of my head. My favorite is actually a print on a wood panel, and it’s so fun I just had to share. It can be yours for $32.00.
