I haven't been in the blog posting mood lately. Too busy with packing. I am a moving master if I say so myself. Nothing is coming with me that I don't need. I move on Tuesday and have a donation pick up on Wednesday.

 4,000 soda pop tabs, 400 yards of ribbon, and 100 hours of tedious weaving. Very pretty in pink.

Paradise Found!

The hunt for apartments on Craigslist is over! I found a place that is perfect. Unfortunately, I found it a month early and need to pack and move this weekend. I didn't sleep at all last night- too much thinking. So tired.

Red Start Murals

 Love it! I can't see myself doing this because I would be constantly seeing flaws in my work and it would drive me crazy.

So good!

Art Studio

 This is Anne Rices' art studio- nice high ceilings

 Good light


Esplande 900 Washington
 The main thing I am looking for in the apartment hunt are windows. I can't live in a dark box.

 Kitchen is so dry- plaster-like.

 There's a kitchen window! Very rare

The Anglesey 815 Sherman

 Love the kitchen!

 Perfect closet- all the room I would need for my stuff

Lee Manor 1065 Pennsylvania

 Love the light off the awning in the window- warm, cozy

 mmm... nice bathroom too
 Another bland kitchen

 Good floors

Nice updated closet

475 sq ft carriage house

 This carriage house is heaven! It is designed by David Tryba and is only 475 square feet! It does have a nice sized deck and a small garage but it is $200 more than I want to spend. I guess I could pick up more clients- ugh!

 Bright kitchen!

350 square feet

 I am trying to prepare myself for living in a smaller place. Right now I am in a 3 bedroom townhouse that is 1200 sq ft. I plan on cutting that in half. I want a smaller place- there is so much unused room here. Above is a picture of 350 sq ft apartment in New York that I saw on Apartment Therapy. Everything in the apartment needs to serve the space well.

 High ceilings and large windows help in small spaces- a corner unit is a good idea.

I love that there are separate sections in one room- kitchen, living rm, office, and bedroom. I need a one bedroom place though- I don't want my bed in the main room no matter how cute I can make it.

Gone Fishing

Love it! I used to just work all the time (uh, still do) and my ex-boss used to ask me, "When are you going to take a vacation?" and I used to say, "Everyday is a vacation!"(that's the poor mans' holiday.) Love the bedroom getaway! That apartment with the outdoor pool is taunting me.


 I found a place available on Craigslist that has an outdoor pool. Could make for a great summer.
