San Francisco Snapshots

It's funny how things strike you differently when you've been away from some time. While I was home, my best friend, Kirsten took me to the city for a day of fun and shopping. It was such a treat to walk around San Francisco and become inspired all over again. 

one ~ Good old BART! I grew up riding this, and it hasn't changed a bit. // two ~ view of San Francisco from BART, I forgot how crowded it is! // three & four ~ a quick stop at the flower mart with Kirsten, she's a florist rock star! // five ~ ceiling of Forever 21! they seriously don't make buildings like they use to! // six ~ I new heart in sf! This is on the corner of Union Square, a new favorite. // Seven ~ Kirsten and I's jewelry haul! // Eight ~ and finally we use so many fashionistas. However, this is a case of vintage gone bad. 

This window installation has seriously still been on my mind. I love the simplicity of the materials and the stunning effects. I'm going to try something like this but make it into a bag. Wouldn't that be stunning?

More inspiration...Upon arrival back home to Portland, I've been on the search for the perfect chain to recreate this necklace! My shopping habits have now officially changed. Instead of shopping to buy, I shop to be inspired to create. :)

DIY Inspiration // Guest Post

Colleen from Inspired to Share is here today to share some DIY inspiration with us! I first met Colleen via twitter, and then at Alt, she is as sweet as can be! I really enjoyed getting to know her and her inspirations. She blogs daily about design, food, and living well! I love her Dream Job series and I'm currently inspired by her new healthy way of living. Thanks for popping in, Colleen! 


While I haven't made much time for DIY projects lately, here are a few that I would love to try soon. Sometimes I just wish I could work on DIY projects all day. I would have a toold shed and an adundance of supplies and it would be a pretty amazing life. 

Hope you're inspired to give one of these a try! xo
