hello my lovely new url!

So, pixelsandarrows.wordpress.com you’ve been fun, but I’m moving on to just plain old pixelsandarrows.com. Please join me there… and I promise I’l be a better blogger.

1000 words

Well, hello there readers. I’m sorry to have been away. So let’s see, what’s been going on? I went to Panama (fun!) Turned 30 (less fun in general, but a pretty awesome birthday.) Other than that life is fairly the same. There has been lots of work and classes, so hopefully 2011 will lead to … Continue reading


Does anyone else find images like this oddly romantic? There’s something so sad about what appears to be a city left to decay, but I always have a glass half full feeling about it. It reminds me of the scene in sleeping beauty when the fairies put the whole castle to sleep for 100 years … Continue reading

so beautiful it’s erie.

So… Erie Basin is a guilty pleasure of mine. I like the pretty pictures. I’m a HUGE jewelry fan—even if earrings sometimes make me feel showy, which is weird I know. Cressant rings, like home page image are my favorite shape, but I love this crazy shape of the ring on top. And I LOVE … Continue reading


Sigh. Again, I’ve been sooooooo long, but I saw these and couldn’t help posting. Wouldn’t they be perfect in a kids room? (I know I’m baby crazy lately, but I’m going to be an aunt for the first time and I can’t help it!) Functional AND educational. Well, functional for those of us without NY … Continue reading

where yago, I go

So I know we’re all wondering if I’ll grow up and get over my obsession with bright shiny objects. I’d be willing to bet my love of metals will expand, my love of fluorescents… anyone’s guess. Certainly not getting over it today though (I am typing this with some seriously high-octane pink nails.) Also certainly … Continue reading

POSTER FRIDAY// tweed tom

It’s back! Poster Friday. Yay. So this week we’re loving Tweed Tom. I don’t know Tom, so we’ll let his site speak for himself: Tom resides in London where by day he works as a creative for Antidote and by night draws and fascinates over obsolete mechanical marvels. He is also one fifth of the … Continue reading

heart of glass

Head over heels for these shots by Johnny Miller. They make me want to scour flea markets and wear sweaters to the beach… They also make want to find that “double rainbow” youtube guy and tell him I’m sorry for laughing. I’m a believer—A simple bit of light and color can truly be amazing.

it’s a bookshelf, not a wall-flower.

These book covers designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith are completely swoon worthy. Last year my sister gave me a bunch of the other redesigned penguin classics that I am still working my way through… but these Fitzgerald’s would look pretty nice sitting next to them.

domestic-construction tee-pee (sweet!)

Saw this over at domestic-construction… HEAD. OVER. HEELS. I’ve talked about tee-pees before, actually more than once. I pretty much think they are adorable—I’m a sucker for cozy. This one just takes the cake though. In college one weekend we made a fort that covered the entire porch and part of the front yard. My … Continue reading
