Expecting A Call?

Recently I have fallen in love with all things vintage, and unfortunately for my bank account, a new little antique store has opened up right across the street. With new items coming in every week, exploring has become one of my favorite pass times. Just a few days ago I walked in to find this piece and it was love at first sight.

Who wouldn't fall for this cute little phone bench? I wonder who has used it and what sort of important calls were made from that incredible orange seat!

Currently I'm doing some research on restoring antiques because, as flashy as the orange-and-nautical motif is, I think it needs a little updating... will post photos of the finished product, but I just couldn't wait till then to share my find!

Stuff I Like: An Optimist's Soundtrack

Silence is golden, but music is something so priceless. Whenever people ask me what type of music I like, I never know how to answer. I'm not the type to seek out new artists or browse iTunes looking for the latest hits... no, I like music that touches my emotions. Ask my college roommate - once a song struck a cord with me it was set on repeat for a month!

That being said, when my friend Kettie told me about SterioMood, I was ecstatic! This free sight allows members to create playlists based on the mood you're in!

.... And wouldn't you know it, there is a playlist titled

Check it out the next time you are in a sour mood, or if your silence is a little less than golden :)

Heads-Up on the Header

For those of you who've been faithfully following my blog, you have probably noticed that I have been promising a new layout for quite some time now. Well, a change is one its way! Now that I'm a college graduate I have some spare time to devote to fun thing like this.
