I am completely enamored with this blog I was recently introduced to, Young House Love. These youngsters are so cute and creative. Check out their home remodel, it's simply AHmazing.
On another house note, I realized I let all of my magazine subscriptions expire. I thought it would be a good time to subscribe to new magazines. Thanks to Amazon, I bought an inexpensive subscription to House Beautiful.
For those of us attached to their Iphones, I thought the new Ben Color Capture app was cool. You snap a picture of a color and it reveals the closest Benjamin Moore paint color. Nifty!

I spent nearly three hours at the mall on Friday looking for pretty Spring dresses. With Easter coming up and also a wedding in San Diego, I was in hot pursuit. I had almost given up when I made one last stop at Anthropologie. I never, ever shop at this store. However, I was so glad I stopped in because they had a great selection of feminine and flattering dresses. I am now a fan!

These travel bottles are amazing! They are made from silicone, squeezable, and come in two sizes (both carry-on friendly). The medium size has a built-in suction cup so you can stick them to the bathroom wall. They are leak-proof and have a cool labeling system. AND the silicone is food grade and bpa free so you can use them for edible products.

For those of us stuck in grey, bland office environments all day, this desk offers some relief. By adding three rows of planters around the edge of the desk, Julio Radesca de Carvalho created a neat idea to maintain privacy and add some refreshing ambiance.

Homemade Font is seriously one of the coolest ideas I have seen in awhile. They develop unique, untraditional fonts using everyday materials. I can see their work used in a variety of different types of multi-media graphics. It's a modern age work of art!

Rolling Huts Located at Mazama in Washington State, six huts serve as accommodations for friends of architect Tom Kundig. What's interesting about this project is that the local zoning code did not allow permanent structures. So the design team gave the cabins wheels!
The following text comes from a press release about the project:
Responding to the owner’s need for a space to house visiting friends and family, the Rolling Huts aim to be several steps above camping, while remaining simple in their design. Set in a meadow and facing the mountains, each single-room hut is placed so that an inhabitant’s gaze is drawn out of the room and towards nature. Informed by the local planning department that cabins would not be approved for the site, the architect hit upon the idea of placing the structures on wheels – effectively making them RVs.
