So, I've been really busy lately getting ready for visitors this weekend. I'm having some friends from Raleigh and Birmingham stay over for a few days. I've been looking forward to this weekend for some time now. It's good to have guests over because it forces me to really clean up the house and organize the things I've been putting off. Plus I miss my friends. Now that I'm done cleaning I'm going to make some homemade chocolate chip cookies then relax and wait for them to show up.

Thinking about painting my bedroom. I'm really inspired by this polaroid. Such a wonderful shade of pink. Still trying to decide how I feel about a two tone wall. We'll see. I'm going to play with some samples this week. This polaroid is from Grant Hamilton's portfolio. Check it out, it's awesome.

By choosing culturally familiar objects, her aim is to show the shapes and structures of everyday things the way they are. Meanwhile, the intentional use of paper material invites users to see a more artistic rather than literal representation of the object. " - more here

I'm not really a big Urban Outfitters fan. I mean, I own a few things from Urban but I find most their clothes to be over priced and their stores really obnoxious. There is something about their Early Spring 2010 catalog that I do like though. The photographs taken in Japan by Marlene Marino are just stunning. They have this very gritty and nostalgic feel to them that appeals to me. Plus they're taken in Japan. I want to go back there so bad...
