I have been busy busy busy, and not had a lot of free time that I want to spend on the computer. So this is just a short and sweet post to point you toward one of my favorite blogs Design*Sponge and one of my favorite segments that they do "Living In" where Amy pulls together design inspiration from some well known and not so well known movies. This week she has taken her inspiration from Wes Anderson's "Darjeeling Limited" (do movie title go in quotes or are they underlined, I can never remember). When I saw this movie in theaters a few summers ago I had a total design crush on it, don't get me wrong I loved the story, but the sets the rich colors and quirky luggage just called to me, so I am happy to see it high lighted here.
P.S. will someone tell the weather that it is May not August and I do not like these sticky hot days, thanks!

Teardrop Dreams

Still no charger so we continue in our detour from house stuff to talk about a long time dream of mine. This post is inspired by Lucy I could not glance through the lovely images that she had of caravans over at her blog with out thinking about my own trailer dreams. I have been wishing for one of these little Teardrop trailers for so long I can't remember when I first saw one.
I love how cozy they seem with a little bed and a few shelves in the main compartment and a little kitchen off the back, they are just the slightest bit above tent camping on the terms of comfort and convenience. I grew up camping in a pop-up camper so these seem like the small scale little sister of those campers to me. I imagine my to have yellow gingham sheets and a fluffy floral comforter. And a kitchen stocked with mismatched cups and silverware. Now that spring is here, I have a bit of the camping bug and day dreams of sunny days and campfires!

Random Goodness

Dear blog readership (ummm Hi Lydia!),
Long time no post!
This has nothing to do with house stuff. I have no new pictures as my camera charges has not been unearthed. In the mess of boxes that are living in my basement. There have been many thrilling things happening around the little house though, I will not gross you out with the details, but lets just say that I have added a sewer and drain guy to my ever growing list service people. If you are ever in need of Sewer work I highly recommend Reed's Sewer and Drain in Ypsilanti!
Other than still finding homes for all my belongings and spray painting picture frames and not mowing my lawn to my shame. I have been doing a lot of crocheting and watching netflix. Crocheting is my true crafting love, I have been mostly working on baby sweaters these days (sorry no pictures see camera problem stated above), but I thought I'd show off some blanket from days gone by. I made both of these for babies born last fall, the top image is of a pattern I made up (and didn't right down so I now have know idea what I did) and was for my cousin Maggie's son Topher. The second is a slightly modified version of a pattern from Vintage Crochet a wonderfully inspiring book for anyone who enjoys yarn craft, it was a gift for my darling niece Evie. So just a little note to say hello and I am looking forward to more posts soon.
