109 : 365 An outtake from the latest we we wore post. "Can I use this stick as a prop?"
110 : 365 Always a sucker for cute stationery, and even cuter puppies.
111 : 365 My monthly photobooth picture.
Organizing my 35mm prints to put in albums. I put them all in chronological order and when I got to the end of 2013 I had to take a second think about what a crazy time it was for me. It was right before I moved. I didn't know I would be upheaving the life I knew and starting on a whole new adventure soon but I was certainly hoping something would happen. I visited Lake View Cemetery for the first time, I drove all the way to Philadelphia just to see my favorite band, shot photos of the now abandoned school my grandpa attended, drove four hours to see a giant basket and some ears of corn, and generally just shot a lot of film. Those posts and photos are really fun for me to look at because I think that's when I was really starting to discover things I liked. There's even a bit of foreshadowing! The abandoned building in this post that I thought looked cool? A year later I'd end up there again.
 112 : 365 Earth Day!
113 : 365 A cozy pup (sorry, there are never enough pictures of him snuggled up in his bed!) and a handful of pouches for the next shop update! PS. Stay tuned for pouch news this week ;)
114 : 365 I am fiiiiinally getting back in the habit of shooting film again. These are the three cameras I've been lugging around this last week, Yashica Mat 124g, Canon Rebel T2, and a disposable camera thats been in my car for who knows how long.
115 : 365 These two, just breaking my heart. No big deal.

I wasn't originally sold on round frame polaroid film but in gold I am really digging it!
I don't think that this pineapple shirt and those shorts are being sold as pajamas but they'd certainly make darn cute pjs!

Heart eyes for days over this backpack!

 I wish I wasn't the messiest person ever (I've essentially banned myself from ever owning anything white) because these sandals, that shirt, and those shorts make a killer outfit!

I'm pretty sure I've included this in a Friday Favorites post in the past but I just found it again and I am still blown away by this print
This black and white sweater looks like it would be really cozy. I could see myself biking it in.

▴ Follow me on twitter? You may have already seen this but I'm sharing it again because this has to be one of my favorite videos of all time. It's a dude waiting at the bus stop dancing. The best part is that's my neighborhood. I bike through there all the time. I would squeal with excitement if I spotted him. 
▴ This is probably the cutest little kitchen set you could get someone moving into their first apartment...or whenever a fox pot holder and other things would be appropriate. (always)
▴ You know what else makes a fun gift? Custom pet portraits!
▴ Charlotte's film photos of Paris make me want travel SO BAD. Not that I don't always want to...
▴ All the silly pool floats that are on the market right now kind of make me wish I spent more time in the water. There's a pizza slice! A T. Rex! A pretzel! And of course, a donut!

Happy Friday!

Ps. Don't forget to browse my Everyday Favorites if you want to see more fun finds!

like finally getting organized!!!
I may collect a lot of things but I do have one thing going for me - I'm organized...for the most part. I like for things to be in their place, and do my best to keep things around the house neat. Honestly, I can't even stand to have messy closets. Out of sight out of mind doesn't work for me. I know there is a mess lurking behind that door and I have to deal with it. Something that has been pestering me for years and years was the fact that all my photos were just in boxes. It was ugly, I couldn't look through them, and it took up a lot of space.

These last few weeks I've been tackling that issue one photo album at a time. I've got most of my 35mm prints organized and in albums. Thanks to an estate sale I have albums for all my land camera photos. I've had instax mini albums in my amazon wishlist for a really long time but only recently pulled the trigger and purchased. You guys, I don't understand why I waited so long.
You might be like "okay, congratulations, your photos are in albums" but seriously this is a weight off my shoulders. Getting organized is the best feeling! I filled up four of the albums and still have a few slots left in the last album (which was a lucky guess! I had no idea how many photos I had or albums I needed) The best part is it makes me want to get out and shoot more knowing that my photos won't end up just tossed in a box.

Now I just need to pick up a handful of Polaroid albums and I'll be all set...

Last week I shared some photos of my living room and today I'd like to share a few more of my favorite corner. I guess this is part two of my collection of oddities. The ones in my office are more natural oddities. Basically they're all just things that used to be alive or part of something living. These ones weren't. There are dentures, dental slides, a tooth shade guide, a model of the uterus with a baby inside, dental models, and a few other odds and ends. I even have my braces, and a mold of my own teeth after getting my braces removed.
oddities, dental models, medical models
dental collection, teeth, oddities
 This cabinet is actually one of the very first things I started to decorate this apartment with. The same week I moved in my furnace died in the middle of the night. It was freezing and I had to call my new landlords right away. They're a super sweet middle aged couple. As I was waiting for them to arrive it hit me, the thermostat is right above this weird little cabinet full of teeth and its basically the only thing in my living room right now. They're going to think I am SO strange. The last thing I want to do is give them a bad impression of me, especially after I was so nervous they wouldn't want me as a tenant because of my hair and tattoos. Hilariously enough the husband was actually pretty interested in my collection. After simply asking "are you a dental student?", he complimented how it looked and revealed his brother used to make dental molds for a living. When he came back the next morning to work on the furnace yet again he said "your apartment is like an I Spy" and that my friends, is a high compliment to this lady!
Hope you're having an awesome week!
