On a Sunday afternoon bike ride to meet up with Kjo on the Quad I stumbled upon some junk that was screaming my name. I picked through the rubbish taking home four of the coolest dumpster finds ever!
DIY kids t-shirt, vintage globe, vintage lock box, vintage National Geographic March 1988-these people had great taste!
I'm no pansy when it comes to dirt!
Detail photo of the adorable gold cruiser that I couldn't resist becoming giddy about..
During this adventure I cycled through my favorite historic neighborhoods taking in sights & snapping some photos of my all time fav houses.
(above) Look at that trim, this family would have to be pretty cool to have picked colors so grand as those!
The stone gates a couple blocks from my house will be missed when I leave the historic area-which I love dearly.
I would love to sip coffee in the mornings around my plants on that sun porch!
scarf-vintage, shirt-diy American Apparel, shorts-diy 7 for all Mankind (they are soo comfy if I put them on they usually get worn for multiple days), bracelet-vintage, kicks-Walmart-Coachella08
check out that seating area on the porch, adorable.
(this house is up for sale, sigh)
this drawing makes me laugh every time I take a looky!
I have different ideas for these objects such as the globe which will later be turned into 2 lamps. This is so easy, you simply split the globe at the 'equator' and assemble a light kit using the holes from the stand. Trim or other decoration can be added or the simple half dome will work. I have been using the National Geographic for Valentines Day cards and other Mod Podging crafts. Speaking of crafts-tonight was spent hanging with gals crafting it up.
Hope you all don't mind the million photos of my daily adventures..
that's all for now..
