Papering the inside of my open shelving with $2 contact paper. I love it!

Coding like a geek-asaurus rex for a surprise later this week (hopefully).

Baking my very first batch of muffins from scratch. Raspberry & yoghurt muffins! They turned out yummy. Im proud of myself.

Playing Scrabble on my iPod Touch. Oh, the hours I have wiled away. (Scrabble is my favourite game of all time.)

Pouring over scores of design magazines that had formed a bit of a backlog over the summer.

Watching Sarahs House on HGTV Canada. Its the highlight of my entire week.

Feeling a wee-bit overwhelmed and frustrated with university at the moment. Please be winter break now.

Im very happy that your eye surgery went well 🙂 Are you going to keep your glasses as a souvenir? They were Chanel if I remember correctly.

Sushi~ Ive never tasted it before since I want to try it before I visit Japan one day. But mom never lets me buy it 🙁 How does it taste like?

(reply to this comment)

Krissy » November 3rd, 2011

Good memory! They were Chanel! I still have them right now, but I dont think Ill keep them. I may try to sell them, but Ill probably just give them away. I already donated my other two pairs (sunglasses and an old pair).

Is it the uncooked fish that makes her nervous about sushi? If it is, maybe shed let you try something thats just veggie to start out? California rolls are kind of like your get your feet wet item with sushi.

KOALA OF EPIC ADORABLENESS

I interrupt our regular scheduled posting to bring you the cutest thing on the entire planet!

Im sorry, I couldnt resist. This is just WAY too cute. Seriously, how adorable is this little guy? I want to take him home and love him and cuddle him forever and ever and ever! ♥ Really, really not helping my desire to kidnap a koala to have for my own. Call me a nutter, but I actually resized all the open windows on my laptop screen this morning so that he could sit in an open window that I could see all. day. long. Those eyes! I just melt.

Never has a GIF (or any picture, really) made me smile bigger than this little guy. I love him. I wish you could carry GIFs around in your pocket. Because I would.

Jennifer » November 4th, 2011

I live in Australia, and have interacted with koalas many a time. Just so you know, like almost all native Australian animals, koalas are fairly vicious if you try to touch them, and are not nearly as cute as they look.

Also, koalas are unfortunately under attack increasingly in the past few years. Many wildlife centres in Australia have been taking in koalas that have been shot or hurt severely by humans some of them, it is believed, because they were attempting to take koalas out of their natural habitat, and did not expect the koalas to fight back.

(reply to this comment)

Krissy » November 5th, 2011

Hey Jennifer! I actually just spent 3 months abroad in Australia and got to visit quite a few conservation centers to see these lovely creatures. It breaks my heart a little bit that theyre so endangered as theyre one of my favourite animals. Ive always wanted to sponsor one so hopefully someday when I can afford it, Ill be able to so I can call a koala my own. (sort of, haha.)

MINIIO DOLLHOUSES

Barbie was my favourite toy growing up. I liked picking out her snappy outfits as much as the next person, but it was setting up elaborate houses for her from boxes and pillows and my nightstand drawers that tickled my fancy. Now that I think about it, I dont recall ever really playing with my Barbies (aside from one or two or twenty Ninja Turtle invasions from my brother), but I do remember spending hours painstakingly setting up the perfect home for Barbie, Ken, Skipper and Kelly. That was my idea of fun. I hope that makes it acceptable for me to be madly in love with these darling dollhouses designed by Miniio. Not only are these houses aesthetically pleasing, decked out in their stylin mid-century modern furnishings, but theyre also eco-friendly using locally sourced materials and sustainable resources. Now thats what I call a dream house. Barbie never had it so good!

The raw natural textures, liberal use of white, and modern architecture have me seriously envying Barbies new digs. She even has a Pantone chair! So jealous. Hey, Christmas (and my birthday) is around the corner Santa, if youre listening, my inner 8-year-old would be bouncing off the walls if I woke up to one of these in my stocking.

Way too cool for kids! Im sure very few would appreciate the architecture and design here. But maybe for those that didnt, it might help cultivate good taste? Whoooo knows. I just know I want one. I cant have my real dream house, so Im going to replace that desire with a doll house for the time being. 😉

JENNA LYONS TOWNHOUSE

JENNA LYONS TOWNHOUSE

So. Who wants to give me $3.75 million dollars? Its for a good cause! The Krissy-needs-to-own-this-townhouse cause. This townhouse (belonging to the one and only Jenna Lyons, creative director and president of J.Crew) is up for sale. And I kind of want it x a lot because Ive been on the envy train for aaaaages. Its been in my folder called Dream Houses swoon! for as long as I can remember. (No lies, I actually have a folder on my computer called that. Its the best folder known to man-kind.)

Its just such a gorgeous townhouse inside and out, its almost mind-bogglingly perfect. From that architecturally gorgeous (white, bonus!) exterior and the beautiful blossom filled backyard (with concrete paving stones which are my FAVOURITE thing in the entire world when it comes to outdoor spaces)

check out that stunning minimal industrial-feel kitchen (mmm, concrete counter tops)

the delicious black coated bedroom and enjoining master bath

the entire-room-is-a-closet room! (Do the shoes come with the purchase of the home? Pleasepretty?)

and, of course, my FAVOURITE room in the entire house, the living room! That chandelier! That couch! That rug! The moldings! The fireplace! Everything!!

Wistful sigh. Yeah, I just really love this place. Its perfect. And Im jealous of whoever gets to live in it post-Lyons.

Most of the images in this post via Fashionologie. Some are from my own archives from aaaaages ago back before I even started my blog, so unfortunately, no source. I want to say theyre from Domino though.

KARI HERER

If Ive said it once, Ive said it a bajillion times: mixed media makes me insanely happy. Which is why photographer/artist Kari Herer is a big favourite of mine and why Ive been following her work for quite some time. It was her magnolias and beetles series (see below, 2nd image from the bottom of this post) that first caught my eye. I absolutely love her take on photography + illustration, combining the two to create one complementary image composed of loose sketches and items from nature. Its absolutely inspired, and a unique signature all her own.

Her new set of photographs featuring hand drawn rabbits adorned with flower buds is riiiiight up my alley.

 

Its such a whimsical touch to the standard sketch by adding in the odd flower bud purposely placed across the page. The florals complement the drawings perfectly creating an unexpected and unorthodox point of colour, texture, and depth. I love it.

And here are some other favourites from her shop:

MIXOLOGY THIRTY DAYS HATH SEPTEMBER, APRIL, JUNE AND NOVEMBER

Allow me to preface this mix with the following: silliness ensues.

Back story: iTunes shuffle can be mighty hilarious and/or clever. First, it played July, July by The Decemberists. Next up was Fiona Apples Pale September, followed by Flowers in December by Mazzy Star. Notice a bit of a pattern there? You bet I did! So for the sake of being a dork, I was curious if I had a song titled with each month of the year in my iTunes library. I did. (And with songs to spare.) I warned you that silliness was abound! I probably should have mentioned dorkiness, too. So I picked my favourites, and made myself a little mix.

Thirty Days Hath September, April, June and November

01. Tori Amos – Black-Dove (January)
02. Architecture in Helsinki – One Heavy February
03. Anya Marina – Waters of March

04. Simon & Garfunkel – April Will Come She Will
05. Alpha – May
06. Eberg – June

(♥) 07. The Decemberists – July, July
08. Rilo Kiley – August
09. Fiona Apple – Pale September

10.  Broken Bells – October
11. Azure Ray – November
12. Mazzy Star – Flowers in December

Bonus: 13. Stars – The Calendar Girl

Listen to the mix on 8tracks

Im such a dork. But it made for a funny little mix. And I kind of like it.

If you only have a few quick minutes for a tune, make it the one marked with a heart ♥: it’s my most loved song of the bunch.
