Despite the snow earlier this week, Spring is starting to roll into Chicago! And with all the birdies singing & the flowers popping, I’ve got candy-colored pastels on the brain. This color scheme has got me thinking about the dance scene in Grease; you know, when Frenchie looks like a banana? All those creamy, dreamy, frothy confections of dresses are dancing around in my head!
Visions of 1950’s kitchens with turquoise & pink appliances drifted through my brain this week. Added in brighter shades of the turquoise & added a splash of red to modernize the whole kitchy thing. I am in total lust vintage refrigerators. A girl can dream, I suppose.
Things i Love Thursday
• Spring being sprung!
• nude fishnets/textured openwork tights
• tidying up my loose ends of wedding planning
• lots of brainstorming!
• magenta! yes.
• no more puffy coats
• knocking out, item by item, my massive to do list
• pink bathrooms
• getting itchy sketchy fingers
Honorable mentions: brewing coffee in the morning; working with my ladyfriend (it’s almost not work! we giggle too much!); prepping for a move into a new apartment & trying to sort out where everything is going to go; ballpoint pen doodling in lined notebooks; happy stray cats named Tiger.
What’s making you grin this week?
Feeling bright pops of magenta complemented with cool greys. There really is a tiny bit of madness in the magenta, methinks.
Sorry, I’ve been sporadic. My brain’s a jumble of planning both for the wedding and for the big move that will happen right after the wedding. And I’m going to try to cram a yard sale in there too! I promise to be a better blogger from here on out.
