things to love {about home}

January 4, 2011
living room rug
1. Old photos. There aren't a lot, but I love them all the same.
2. Random things from my childhood that my mom kept. (Rocking horse, Little Mermaid pillow...)
3. Our Audrey Hepburn coffee table book collection.
4. Rice cooked and ready 24/7.
5. Being with family everyday.
6. Raiding my mom's closet (she dresses better than I do).
7. Waking up to the sound of my mom and her sewing machine.
8. Despite the fact that we've lived in more than 15 houses, each one has felt like "home" as long as we were still together.

If you have a list of things you love about your city (or home!)
feel free to send it in with some photos (including one of your feet!)


  1. Home? Home is where the heart is? Currently I live in 3 different apartments and am quite confused with the idea of home :). Things will probably get better in February when I'll move to Berlin permanently. :)

    P.S: I'm giving away a 2011 Fashion Tote with MiuMiu, Chanel... etc illustration... I thought you might be interested! ;)

  2. #8 is truly amazing....and i would LOVE to have rice cooked 24/7!

  3. I love your collection of magnets. I see a Seattle one on there... ;)

  4. I grew up with a rocking horse that looks almost identical to this one!

  5. The little horsey is adorable and that carpet is really nice.

  6. i love all of these pictures... i think my favorite is either the silhouettes or the carpet.. or all of the thread! grr. can't choose. <3

  7. Could you have chosen a more glamorous old pic? lol
