And . the . word . of . the . day . is...

Obsessed.

(This is my newest favorite word, and I fully intend on using it as a descriptive term in all circumstances. For example, "I am obsessed with how good this coffee tastes," or "I am obsessed with purple highlighters that can work as pens.")

I'm also obsessed with:



^^Birds. In particular, the new piece I made for our bedroom (I'm the least craft-y person ever, so potentially pretty bird fabric + canvas + a stapler could have = problems), and some of my other lovely bird images.



^^Apple green (the color of my new velvet comforter from IKEA and the color of the fainting sofa that I'm still lusting after, from Urban Outfitters)


^^Grown-up Goth looks for fall. This is so much more sophisticated than your typical high school all black look. Lush fabrics (velvet, velvet, velvet), draped garments, and opulent jewelry create a particularly savory style.



^^Vampires. The HBO series True Blood premieres this coming Sunday (yay!!). The show is receiving some early critical buzz, and hey, it's created by Alan Ball. The film version of Stephanie Meyer's Twilight also opens later this fall. I picked up the novel as light reading for the flight to Korea, and now I'm obsessed -- the books aren't exactly Dostoevsky, but they're pretty fun to read.
