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!

{here}

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).

{here}

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

{here}

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!
