Mega-congrats to my friend Dean over at My Little Apartment (also of South Social & Home) for getting her beautiful apartment posted on Apartment Therapy! If there were ever a Craigslist queen, it would be Dean.  Check out the post here!

Flea Market Find: Malachite Ring

Pardon my embarrassingly dry hands.  I really hate posting any photo of my hands because they’re hard to photograph in a flattering way.

So I chose this oddly hip-hop looking pose. BIG PIMPIN’.

Anyway, I found this malachite ring and am super stoked about it.

The Plant Journal: Vol. 1

So I finally ordered The Plant Journal: Vol. 1, and got it in the mail a week or so ago from the great folks at Lucky’s in Vancouver.  I waited another week to open it so that I could document it when I did.  I’ve got to savor print like this, you know? It’s taken me several weeks more to post it up here on The Look See.  I know it’s probably the most overly documented plant periodical in the past decade, but can you blame me? I mean, it combines three of my greatest joys in life: plants, design, and literature.

Now I need Vol. 2 which is out now.

Sidenote: I’m convinced that I have a Staghorn-shaped void in my life.  Time to expand my horticultural horizons.

Another sidenote: this is also where I found Mr. Eichhorn’s beautiful collage work.
