give me the green thumb..

this year i really want to try a small garden. since i live in a studio apartment the key word here is "small". i am going to start planning my layout and share my progress with you all. i am hoping to grow tomatoes and carrots and maybe a few herbs and spices. i really envy people who have a green thumb. here are a few pictures that sparked my inspiration to grow a small garden.

i wish i had enough space to create this awesome hanging walk through garden! via apartment therapy

time to pinch pennies.

hello loves. i know it's been a bit quiet here on the blog. midterms have crept up on me along with the fatigue bug. however i am loving the weather. lately i have been pinching my pennies for my upcoming trip to california with some good old friends to see the wonderfully talented roger waters perform the wall. i can not express my excitement. i really should be sedated. **maybe if i'm lucky enough david gilmour will make a special appearance. i can only hope** so there will be a lot of canned soup and walking in my life so i can save up enough to have a kick ass trip.

footnote: i know that kony 2012 has been floating around everywhere on the internet..but just in case you missed it. here is the link

lyric wall art - - a project

a few days ago my friend and i were feeling crafty. we made cute lyric wall art inspired by this pretty cute blog. here is how mine turned out!

 we took a vintage paint-by-number and applied our stickers.

once the stickers are applied, pour on the paint..

 i decided to speed up the process a little bit..

once it had completely dried i carefully peeled off the stickers.

 this little project added so much personality to my kitchen. i love it!
