camera one, camera two, camera one, camera two

This is the story of a blog that has gone through 49 published posts (this marks 50, yippee!) over the course of one year and four months all supported by myself, my dog’s willingness to be photographed, and my little iPhone 5. Well, iPhone…you can breathe easy now. No longer will you carry the blog photography on your tiny back. Because last week, I became the proud owner of an actual DSLR camera. …she said, and then posted a picture of her camera taken with her iPhone. I’m so excited! I’ve been having a tough time pressing publish on posts…


bedding update: seersucker doesn’t suck

So, when Matt moved into the tiny apartment we decided that his king-sized bed should come with him. I made the necessary arrangements for re-homing my old queen-sized sleigh bed (via Craigslist, of course). Once she was packed up and riding off into the sunset, we made room for the bigger bed, which actually fits the space way better than either of us expected. All of this is to say that we were in need of new bedding. My queen-sized stuff was too small, Matt’s king-sized stuff was too brown, and navy and grey felt just right. TBH I’ve been pinning…


ABA on The Everygirl

I’m so excited to share my apartment tour with you guys- in full! With photos taken on a real camera, by an actual photographer! I’ll be back with more comments on this, but for now I just want to thank the wonderful people at The Everygirl for being so great, for inspiring girls everywhere, and for capturing my tiny apartment in such a great light. (Photography puns!!) This feature + iced coffee = I may have a heart attack today. Here’s some sneak peeks…click the link at the bottom of the post for the full tour on The Everygirl! See the…


a whole new living room: shining, shimmering, splendid

I’m getting a little carried away with the Aladdin references, it’s true. Sorry. It’s just like…what are you supposed to do when you have a beautiful Persian rug/magic carpet that you’ve dreamed of resting happily on your living room floor? The correct answer is: watch several Aladdin videos on YouTube and then write a blog post. The living room got two major updates. One was planned, and one was serendipitous. The Persian rug resting on a braided jute rug: planned. The coffee table update: a sweet find on my way home from picking up the rug. So, let’s start at…


the tiny apartment house tour: dining room

Now that I’ve picked my jaw up off the floor after the excitement of the Apartment Therapy feature last week,  it’s time to press on with the remaining handful of square feet of this tiny apartment house tour. So hold on to your butts, cause it’s time to check out the dining room! This room has gone through several configurations since moving in. First, it was empty. But my heart was full…of panic that my stuff would not fit in this tiny room. Guess what- it didn’t fit! My chairs were too large and too many. Technically everything could squeeze…
