Loving what I'm seeing at the small Philadelphia-based furniture company BDDW. They are known for their wood pieces, but its the sofas that caught my eye.

For the t-shirt and jeans kind of girl (or not)

I am decidedly not a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl (to Hunter's dismay). I love t-shirts and I love jeans. But I'm much more likely to be caught in some pants/leggings hybrid and a loose-fitting girly blouse. Or a skirt. Or a dress. And theeen maybe I'll be in a t-shirt and jeans (but probably with a blazer over it). Enter Poppy and Moe. I am head over heels for this t-shirt line, especially that warrior tee. A girl can convert, right?

Photographers and their Photos

Steve McCurry holds his 1984 photo of a young woman from Peshawar, Pakistan. "I looked for this girl for 17 years and finally found her in 2002. Her name is Sharbat Gula."

Neil Leifer holds his photo, Ali vs. Liston, which he took on May 25, 1965 in Lewiston, Maine.

Mary Ellen Mark: "I am holding my photograph of Ram Prakash Singh and his beloved elephant Shyama — taken in 1990. Ram Prakash Singh was the ringmaster of "The Great Golden Circus." The photograph was done in Ahmedabad India. This was part of my Indian Circus Project.

I love India and I love the circus so photographing eighteen circuses all around India was an incredible experience. Unfortunately, Shyama died a few months after this photograph was taken. Supposedly he succumbed to a poisoned chapatti. Ram Prakash Singh was heartbroken. Me also."

Harry Benson: "Brian Epstein — Beatles' manager — had just told them they were number one in America, and I was coming with them to New York, 1964."

Elliot Erwitt: "The picture I am holding was snapped in 1974 just across the street from my apartment in New York's Central Park. It has been 38 years since that event and sadly I have lost track of the participants." 

Just some photographers and their most iconic images, as part of a book/project called Behind the Photographs to honor those who devote their entire lives to photography. Its eye-opening to see the face behind the photos that many of us know so well.

This and That

So I haven't seen any one thing in particular I'd like to post about lately... mostly just this and that. So... I decided to do a post based on the this and that I've been eyeing lately. Here it goes: 

Emerson Media Stand from PBteen (do you know how hard its been to find a cool tv stand/entertainment center??! I've been on Craigslist for months).

Everything at the Three Potato Four shop lately

And last, but not least...

Yay, lazy blogging! Hope you all have an awesome weekend and that crappy winter weather doesn't bring you down (it may or may not be getting to me this week - is it summer yet?).

Downton Abbey, Season 2

So I only watched the Golden Globes for about a second last night (did it feel tamer than last year or did I duck out too early?), but I did get to see Downton Abbey win best mini-series. Which reminded me that I really needed to see Season 2! Which is actually the reason why I stopped watching the Golden Globes :). I am now on episode 2 and am so excited to unfold all the Edwardian drama! Any fans out there??

Just a Girl and Her Chicken

This lookbook for Pesqueira's summer collection looks like it was so fun to create. Getting to say you hung out with a pig, two dogs, a goose, parrot and chicken for work? Sign me up. It's also pretty cool, since in seasons past animals have been incorporated into many of the prints and patterns.

Feeling pretty inspired by these new Pinterest finds...
