Monday Morning Randomness

I imagine most of you are still getting over the long weekend and holiday festivities - while gearing up for the big countdown this Friday, so I'll keep things light and easy to digest.

First, I seriously want this Coach tote:

As seen on Karla's Closet

It's the Kristin Zip Top Tote and it comes in a variety of colours. It would be perfect for work & play. Definitely on my "to buy" list.

Next up - poached eggs. Thanks to Smitten Kitchen I can now make a perfectly poached egg. This makes me all kinds of happy and I frequently tweet pics of my little perfect poached eggs. I imagine if you follow me on twitter you're sick of hearing about them but here's one more:


Anna of Door Sixteen, a blog I adore, has a new project! She and her husband are renting a 400 square foot pied-a-terre in Manhattan that she will be decorating and fixing up. She has impeccable taste and takes DIY renovation to another level so I'm very excited to see what she does with this small rental space. As a fellow renter living in a small space - I can't wait to read along! I'm sure I'll be borrowing some ideas...

Anna's new rental apartment - such great bones!

Lastly, I know I've previously questioned whether I should open an Etsy shop or not - selling some of the vintage items I find while thrifting. Well, a few weeks ago I had a dream I opened a successful Etsy shop with a quirky name...so it's decided. Early 2010 I'm opening an Etsy shop!

I'll be stocking quality vintage accessories for the home. Very excited. Too bad the name is already taken [in my dream it was Three Ring Circus] so I'll have to come up with something else. I'll be sure to keep you all updated as things come along.

Actually, one more thing. My little blog has been nominated for a homie award over on Apartment Therapy in the Home Design Category. If you're up for it - please pop over and leave a vote for me. Only if you want to :) At the very least just check it out to discover some awesome blogs. I've found some great new ones.

To vote click here. Then click the little house icon beside Apartment 412.

So that's it for today. Easy peasy reading :) Happy Monday!

Congrats on your etsy shop opening - I can't wait to see what you have in there.

Off to vote for your blog on the homies.

PS: Guess who got a monkey vase for Christmas??? It so much bigger than I thought it was going to be - no clue where to put it. Where does yours live?

I can't wait to see your etsy shop. I have one but I sell my paintings and photographs. It's really a great place!:)-Jennifer

Your etsy shop will be all sorts of fabulous and I cannot wait to add it to my favorites. The coach tote looks a lot of fun as well. I've never made poached eggs. Perhaps one of these days I will try it.

Yay! Can't wait to stalk your Etsy shop. You do find the best stuff.

Oh my gosh I love that Coach bag. So unlike traditional stuff they have right now. Color is divine. Poached eggs are my fave, especially on eggs benedict.

wow, that coach bag? *drool* My mom's a COACH brand rep and I had no idea about that gorgeousness. I will immediately be hounding her about that.

I saw that bag on Karla's Closet blog. I love it.
