Marching On

How is it already April 1st tomorrow? How?

I don't know where March went, but here's a desktop background I made that you can download if you also need a reminder that it's April already.

Any plans or suggestions for some April fooling tomorrow?

Pick Pink

Today was mostly overcast and a bit dreary in the city, so here's some hot pink to liven things up a bit:





I would love a hot pink sink! It makes doing the dishes much more cheerful. What do you think?

Sidewalk Saturday 3/27

This Saturday was full of fun finds!

I went to the San Francisco Antique Mall for the first time, and found this really cool reverse painting on glass I wish I could have bought:

And these antique valve handles were pretty awesome too:

After the antique mall, my friend Alicia and I headed to the Alemany Farmer's Market which was nearby:

I bought some fresh strawberries, but didn't get any flowers this time.

Here's some pictures of an amazing graffiti wall near the farmer's market:

I love the color combos in these, especially the last one!

And last but not least, I found this stencil near Folsom St while walking to the car after stopping at a garage sale:

How's your weekend going so far?

Things I'm Thankful for Thursday 3/25

This is a quick one, I'm worn out from a couple of really busy days in a row. Here's what I'm thankful for this Thursday:

1. I finally broke down and bought a french press, no more instant coffee!


2. Remembering how fun it is to drive a car (I've only driven a hand full of times since moving to SF two years ago).


3. Starting a new book in my book club (The Devil in the White City).


4. Nail art pens. Too much fun!


How is your week going? Reading any good books?

If My Day Was A Wallpaper

It would be this one:

Spring-like, cheerful, and full of many different things.

How was your Monday?

Sidewalk Saturday 3/20

I ran across several new sidewalk stencils this week while walking around parts of the city I hadn't been to before. There were even a couple I didn't get good pictures of that I'll probably go back for.

"déjà pu"

"Mrs Bi-Polar Bear"

"Manimals smell like bad decisions"

I also took a picture of the new CB2 window because I liked the stenciled signs, and the message (I also love reflection photos).

And here's a robot graffitied onto some kind of tank, similar to the mailbox one I posted before.

My favorite is the robot, but I also can't help but love the phrase "manimals smell like bad decisions," it's kind of brilliant. What do you think?

Things I'm Thankful For Friday Edition

I was super busy yesterday and didn't get a chance to do my usual Things I'm Thankful For Thursday post, so here they are today:

1. A full social calendar.


2. Dining out with friends.


3. A new House Beautiful magazine with inspirational pictures in it.


4. I finally finished the roll of film that was in my holga camera!


5. The weather has been amazing in the city and people are out enjoying it.


Happy Friday! I hope your weekend is full of things to be thankful for!

Pot Of Gold

I was going to post pictures of green interiors for St. Patrick's Day, but this seemed like a lot more fun:









When I was little I always thought I could really find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. It's a lovely idea isn't it?

I also did a little watercolor to celebrate St. Patty's. I'm falling a little behind on my new years resolution to do a sketch/painting once a week.


Happy St Patrick's Day!
