What Are You Doing for New Years?

I'm guessing some of you may have already heard this duet from the adorable Zooey Deschanel and Joe Gordon-Levitt. It poses an excellent question - what are you doing for New Years? Hunter and I are doing fireworks and food with some friends on New Years Eve, but afterward? This year we are super motivated. And we have the gym passes to prove it ("thank you" - my pants). But, seriously, I'm pumped to take on my New Years resolutions with full force, even if I only end up doing them for a month. At least I'll have a really good month, rightt??? To celebrate this new found spirit, I'd like to reflect on the top posts Amarillo y Crema had to offer this year:

5. Paris in the 1920s: More than one of us was a fan of the fashions sparked by this summer's "Midnight in Paris". I'm seeing tons of dropped-waist dresses in the stores.

4. 4th of July and Two Years and Counting...: I received some sweet comments/tweets while documenting DC's favorite holiday and Hunter and my two year anniversary. Makes me excited for next year's highlights and milestones.

3. Loving Orla Kiely: Lets face it - we are all loving Orla Kiely!

2. The Marriage Telegram: Looks like I'm not the only one in for a "swinging time".

1. Rita Konig Style: Now this post took a long time to put together. But was it worth it? Yes, it was - according to my lovely readers, such as yourself. Who doesn't love a girl who makes her own illustrated fireplace (pssstt... check out this new to me photo).

Here's to another year of great posts! Have a Happy New Year everybody!

Happy Holidays!

I love this letter to Santa, found here. The consideration for Santa's difficult job is so sweet. Right now we're in California celebrating Christmas with some family and friends. I know I've been such an inconsistent blogger lately, and I apologize! I'll be much better next year. May you all have a happy Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, etc.!

This is my winter song to you

So I guess today is the first day of winter. Currently listening to "Winter Song" by Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Micaelson and loving the A/W 2011 lookbook from Sally Scott. Makes me want to go ice skating. Keep warm!

I'm a sucker for a brown leather couch

Love all the brown leather and vintage/modern style in model Anouck Lepére's apartment in Antwerp.

Dream Closet

I love this amazing walk-in closet over at House of Fifty! Interior designer Saudah Saleem convinced her husband to change their master bedroom to the smaller guest room so she could use the master bedroom as her closet, promising he would finally be able to see the floor in the new bedroom. Mustard yellow settee, chevron rug, plus shoes on display? Yes, please! Also, can you believe the wardrobe/shelving is all from Ikea?

Happy Thankgiving, y'all!

Saw this sign at a BBQ place we went to today. Having a much-needed Thanksgiving break in Texas. See y'all on Monday!

Adams Family meets Alice in Wonderland

I came across this "Adams family meets Alice in Wonderland" victorian home in Sydney, and fell in love with its dark and mysterious atmosphere. The home had been abandoned for 40 years, before Australian designer Debra Conin took on the challenge. She transformed it to her current home and office in only four months. Pretty amazing.

Missed Connections

Do you ever read the Missed Connections section of Craigslist? New York (but Australian born) Artist Sophie Blackall does illustrations of some of the listings. I know she's been popular for some time now, but I saw her on my Etsy favorites the other day and I fell in love all over again. Here are some of my favorites:

DIY Photobooth?

I just discovered this website, photoboother, that converts your photos into photobooth strips. I'm gonna have a lot of fun with this one...
