Since Jason and I have moved into our new apartment we haven't really had the chance to make it into a well lived in home.  That's something that I'm trying to change.

Today I put up some thrifted curtains that I bought last winter and some fabric bunting.  Yes please.

Video Timeline

As a history teacher, I'm a pretty big fan of timelines.  I'm an even bigger fan of video timelines.
Another example of how visuals can never be bad.

Here is a video timeline of modern London fashion.

Green Eye Candy.

Jadeite anything is always homey, classic, and always the perfect pop of color.  Love it.

Fabric Bookshelf

I cannot wait to try this tutorial.
Jason's vinyl shelf has been a little sore on the eyes lately, so this should really spice it up!

Cat Paw-T.

 Did I ever mention that I threw myself a cat birthday party for my 25th birthday? 
Well, I did. 
And it was glorious.

Tunes for Tykes. September/2011

Why?  Because I like you.

Everyone has a similar story.

There is a certain comradery that I have noticed does not exist in the mid-west like people in the northeast have, and particularly in New York.  I don't really talk about being raised in Queens that often, because where I'm from, it's really no big deal.  Everyone has a similar story.
My family was lucky enough to not to loose anyone on September 11, 2001.  I don't know how we didn't, with everyone we loved in New York working in Manhattan.
There was always a silent understanding between everyone I knew on the east coast that you just don't bad mouth that day.  You just don't.  It's rude, uncalled for, and completely unnecessary.  I don't know if I just don't hang out with the right people or what, but the midwest lacks that, and it hurts my heart.
