five things monday

by kmcopeland

Mondays are hard when you’re a commuter. When the alarm clock rings at that ungodly hour, I’m always convinced that I’ve somehow made a mistake in setting it. I think it’s because the weekends lull you into this relaxed state where you’re no longer bound to a train’s time table – you’re an independent person with actual free will! It’s lovely. But then comes Monday and reality hits. But today I am choosing to fight my case of the Mondays with five things that make me think maybe this day isn’t so bad.

no.1 blueberry preserves & blueberry cupcakes

We bought a sailboat this weekend! I am so excited to get it out in the water and can’t wait for all the fun to be had…

take five [art wall]

by kmcopeland

I am trying to decide how to put up our art on the large wall in our living room, and it turns out that this is an agonizing decision for me.  Every time I think I have committed to something, I see another picture that makes me doubt my original decision.

I love, love, love the floor to ceiling look, but I did that it in our last house so I am feeling a little “been there, done that” about it. But, I see all of pretty pictures like these and I think it’s not so bad to stick with something if you love it.

The cluster I could get behind because it’s really just a toned down, reined in version of the above option. It still has the whimsy, especially when the art seems to trail off, almost like there’s much more to the story!  Another positive – it doesn’t require such an extensive art collection.

The type-A in me likes the order and neatness of the straight rows.

Argh, thought this would help. Not so much. My goal is to have the outlines up this week, so I’ll keep you posted on how it turns out…

take five [paul raeside]

by kmcopeland

I can’t remember now where I first saw Paul Raeside’s interior photography, but I find myself going through his portfolio quite often. Something about the way he captures the light really appeals to me – somehow very serious and introspective, and maybe even a little bit sad. This Monday, take five minutes to enjoy the photography of Paul Raeside.
