1. This modern chicken coop. Plus, this lady is hilarious.
2. The perfect high chair for all those modern-loving moms out there.

I actually couldn’t find a music video today that was awesome enough for a music monday post. Can you believe that? I tried, I really did. So instead here’s a little collection of things I’ve been liking recently. I love the eclectic kitchen (haven’t found out where it’s from.) When I was single my living spaces were always filled with a hoarded bunch of eccentricities and random beautiful or ugly items passed down to me or found in thrift stores. Now that I’m married and have a house, I feel like I’ve kind of grown up … which makes me sad. I have made a point to make sure that everything goes well together. Not matchy-matchy, mind you. Oh, never that. But my living room … it just … to me it looks too nice. I hope to bring back some of the oddball stuff in the coming months. I’m done being ordinary.
