apartment.








Did some re-arranging last night, so thought I would share! I went on a trip to Hunt and Gather (my favorite Minneapolis thrifting spot thus far) with my coworkers yesterday and picked up some new things so that's what got the re-hang/re-organize bug in me. I love Pottery Barn's big funky botanical print they have right now, seen on the pillows! I was excited about my new picture arrangement behind the sofa too (click on the pic to see more of a close up).. the "ARH" (my initials) book pages I bought yesterday from an amazing alphabet book with this little gnome man that is in every frame, my Too Many Suitors "Lovely Minnesota" print, Anthropologie plate, my dream cottage print I bought in Savannah, fabulous pink frame from Haylie Bird featuring a postcard I bought from a market in France, and sweet pine cone bird from Emily. I also bought my globe yesterday..yipee! I have played the "where am I going to travel next game?" more times that you can count. Next to it, I have my jar of milk weed pods. Before I left for France, my mom packed some in an envelope for me and told me to let them go and make a wish while I was there. They are a sweet reminder of her, home, and traveling for me. I also have a bowl with some rocks I picked up on the beach in Japan, the incredible champagne cork Paige popped outside of our hotel window in Paris and we found the next day on the street, a button from Paris..and other small things that remind me of places I've been. My desk is next..started a penny jar at the beginning of the year..where I sit and blog, etc. The kitchen..My favorite thing is having space to display my pyrex bowls! I'll post pics of my room and sewing room once things are lookin' a little better in those spaces.
