“The only people for me are the MAD ones, the ones

who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of 

everything at the same time,       
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing


but burnburnburn,

like fabulous yellow roman candles 

exploding like spiders across the stars.”

changing things up.

Lately I’ve been feeling restless and claustrophobic in our small Chicago apartment…I think we have officially outgrown the 900 sq ft space. We’ve been looking at houses to rent and that has only made me more antsy and unhappy with our place.

Maybe it’s the changing seasons or the feeling that I have no control over several areas in my life right now…whatever the psychoanalysis might be…I’ve changed a few tiny things up in our apartment and it has seemed to make a huge difference.

It all started with these two vintage looking shabby chic gardening trays (at least thats what I think they are supposed to be) I found at Marshall’s.

And then took off with some left over antique blue Ball jars from our wedding, antique dishes, moss stones, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, a peacock feather, seashells, and bird ornaments.

I think I basically took all of my favorite things and put them in these boxes. And now being able to look at them all the time makes me happy!
