Friday Favorites // #6

I can’t believe how long it’s been since my last Friday Favorites installation.  Sorry ’bout that, yo…

I’m moving!  I’ll miss living in the country and being on a first-name-basis with the chicken-folk at the feed store, but I am excited about living closer to the city and having a guestroom so y’all can come crash at my place!  I’m also excited about having a new space to decorate.  Right now, I am in love with blue and indigo.  This palette is providing me with inspiration and I consider this wall near perfection.  Now, which wall to paint first?

If someone asked me my favorite color, I would show this photo.  Or this palette.  Man-oh-man, these colors make me happy.  I guess even moving 1100 miles away, you can’t take the San Diego out of the girl.  What’s your favorite color?

This collection of photos makes me want to start planning for summer, pronto.

I have a special place in my heart for Wes Anderson movies… I love the quirky charm.  Which means I was super excited to see this trailer!  Who’s with me?

If you know me, then you know I love words.  I spent some time this week going through a notebook where I’ve been saving all kinds of quotes and poems.  I’d love to make something like this as a way to display some of them in my home.

Though print magazines will always be my first love, this online zine is definitely worth taking a look through.  Especially since the featured house tour is so swoon-worthy.

And finally, one of my very favorite things in the whole wide world is when I get film back from the lab.  Here are a few images from a sweet session with two dear friends and their little girls…  xoxoxxo

Discomfort // NW Industrial Portland

A few months ago, I took a photo walk with my friend, Ben.  I challenged myself to do something completely different… to break out of that zone.

Canon EOS-3 35mm

85mm f/1.8

1 roll of B&W film (Tri-X, I believe.)

None of my favorite, go-to gear.  Gritty.  Industrial.  Urban.  So totally out of my element, that I’m still not sure how I feel about them.



I can’t wait to do it again.

Seaside, Oregon + a Very Happy 2012!

I was so happy to kick 2011 to the curb and usher in the new year at the Oregon coast….  Here’s wishing you and yours a very happy 2012!
