Would you believe that it has already been 4 months since our last “A Collection Part” post? I can already hear Veronica’s voice in the back of my head saying, “I can.” Every time I speak to the girl, she’s always asking for another one. Little does she know, constructing these take forever! Good news though, I’ve already started building Part 40 so hopefully we won’t have to wait as long for the next one, but if she had it her way, it would be every week.
Making this post this time around was quite refreshing to me. Veronica once asked me how I choose the pictures that I do for this post and I don’t know if I was ever able to give a great answer. I probably just said that I chose the pictures I liked, but I’d like to elaborate on that a little bit. I used to do a bit of photography back in high school and in the early days of college, I brought my camera with me everywhere I went. I love that these photos are being taken in ways that I never thought of before. They are various shots that spark something in me, but I have no idea what it is and because I can’t explain it or put it into words of some sort, I love it. Maybe that’s not a better explanation than before, but it makes sense to me!

Veronica told me just the other day that I was overdue for A Collection post. In looking through my archives, I see that it has only been TWO months. This is actually probably a new record for us. Like many “A Collection” posts, there is no theme. I wish I had something to say about how I’m feeling or why I chose the photographs that I did, but I choose them because at the time it is what is most pleasing to me!

There is nothing better than decorating a new space for the first time. That feeling that you have a blank canvas right in front of you and that you can do whatever you want with it. This beautiful holiday garland by one of my favorite Confetti System via West Elm will be a new addition to my room.
Christmas time year ’round y’all!
But seriously, the triangles are delicately shaped and the colors are too much fun.

Lenka – Two
So here’s the thing… the album hasn’t been released yet, (it will be April 19!) but it is quite possibly one of the best CDs I’ve heard from this year. I was thinking about this idea last week and I decided that Lenka is the one singer that would best represent my personality. If I had a singing voice, I would want it to be hers. If I wrote lyrics, I would want them to look like her songs. Basically, she’s great and I am so bummed that I missed her show earlier this week in Seattle. Here’s hoping that she will return this summer!
