Just some random home goodness for your very early Saturday morning. Hopefully these will help inspire me to finally get my home redecoration started within the week. Cross your fingers!

Oh my. I never thought I could like tools and household supplies so much, but it looks like alice supply co. sure knows how to make them look mighty good.

call me smitten.

Yes, I am in love with this brand new home tour of photographer Jamie Isaia and clothing designer Anthony Malat. I think it might just be my favorite Selby tour yet, which is saying a lot. Oh, those vintage collections... envy, envy.

hello, weekend.

This photograph by Anni Leppälä speaks to me this evening. Somehow it expresses a little bit how I have been feeling lately.

Anyway, I hope you all have a very lovely weekend! I am quite ready for it.

flickr friday : sun cravings.

Here in Portland, we have been going through some terrible late-May weather, switching constantly from little bits of sunshine to the darkest storm clouds I have ever seen, pouring down huge hunks of hail and crazy amounts of rain. Needless to say, I am not enjoying it and cannot wait until we see the sunshine for long periods of time.
