“We were together. I forget the rest.”

{everywhere, beauty}

having a momentous crush on this artist, hadley holliday, who i came across thanks to michelle.  i am a stripe girl. so these particular paintings of hers are just… so up my alley. and even the names are beautiful. these are two of my favorites.


just a perfect day





i want a watch. i need a watch. seeing as how my j.crew rolex still hasn’t fallen out of the sky {shocking, i know}, i think this might do nicely. the color makes it different enough to be interesting, but it’s still classic.



this home. i can’t stop looking at it. perfect mix of industrial and warm. the best. p.s. that “love” deal in the dining room? yeah. doing that in my next house. {here}





this heart poster by banquet. it would make quite the valentine, no?

BELIEVES: “A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security.” Albert Einstein “The important thing is not to think much but to love much and so do that which best stirs you to love.” St. Teresa of Avila “People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances without own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” Joseph Campbell
