Arbitrary Day 2010: Super kawaii fun pack!

Posted in love this by gwen on June 13, 2010

I participated in the First Annual Arbitrary Day swap and received this awesome pack of Japanese goodness from my Secret Santa:

Super kawaii fun pack!

The KitKat is Sakura Green Tea-flavored chocolate. It came in two packs, very delicious. And the snail is a tape measure — how cute is that?

I think I will frame the postcard. It is always Delicious Coffee Time here.

Home inspirations

Posted in craft, love this by gwen on May 18, 2010

I’m a renter and always have a hard time getting inspired to put a lot of work into doing decorating — even though everywhere I’ve lived, it always feels kind of fleeting because there isn’t the kind of commitment that you have with owning — we can pack up and move with just 30 days notice and then you have to start over.

Which is silly because everywhere I’ve lived, I’ve stayed for ages. And so what anyway! Half the reward is making something sweet and admiring it, who cares if it might end up being something left behind or changed. Life is too short! So I’ve been trying to keep an eye out for bits and pieces that I like to give me a little kickstart and am going to start sharing them.

Put this on while you’re admiring: Best Coast Should Be Your Sound of Summer. [And check out the whole Citizen Insane mp3 blog while you’re at it, it is full of sunny, poppy, fun summer music, which is my favorite kind. You can stream the whole playlist here.]

Succulents by f. arias

man, I love this guy’s photos. he has the most amazing succulent collection ever.

Project #2 in my painting class is a flower. Must stretch to 3 edges of the canvas, have two complementary [is that redundant?] colors and he said we should blend but i really like this one and i’m taking the class pass/fail and i don’t really care anyway. i blended plenty on my butterfly.


Huernia sp. by f. arias

also this one, though the idea of trying to paint all that fine hairy stuff gives me the willies.

Matelea cyclophylla by f. arias

I also like these though I might be a stretch to call them flowers.

Conophytum vanzylii by f. arias
