neat laundry ideas for small spaces

I saw this drying rack on Shelterness...I keep thinking it would be perfect for our little front foyer which also has my washer and dryer (my ladies!) stacked in it. What I like about it is that the drying rack can squish back in, but yet there's still coat hooks for our coats...and a shelf to put our laundry soap on and stuff. The problem? If we stretch it out to dry, you can't get in and out of the door, so it would have to be used only in the evenings, for example, or when we know we aren't on our way out and in! Yah, kind of a big concern. But I love it so...{Ballard Designs via Shelterness}

Here's some other ideas from Shelterness that are cool:

christina perri ... cool rocker chic

I was listening to Grooveshark the other day and I heard that song the Jar of Hearts...and well...I really loved it. It's so pretty but so heartwrenchingly heartfelt (yes lots of hearts in this song). I liked the imagery of this selfish person collecting a jar of hearts too. Maybe because Bloomers have something with mason jars? I pictured them storing the hearts on a shelf of mason jars. Anyway, I think we all can relate to the lyrics on some level or another, no? But MUSIC ASIDE, I checked out the official video and I liked it even MORE! I thought her dress was very cool - I don't know WHAT has gotten into me but I think THIS would be a cool bad ass wedding dress too. And I also liked the dancing. It reminded me of So You Think You Can Dance. So, I googled the artist Christina Perri, and found out she was an unsigned artist, and her song WAS featured on So You Think You Can Dance (the dancers were in her video!), to a dance choreographed by Stacey Tookey, who had received the rough un-professionally recorded version from this girl's friend (good friend eh?)! Any way, overnight SUCCESS, her song was in the top 10 downloads on iTunes immediately. Cool story huh? I can't help it, I like this girl, she seems really funky. I like her hair, I like her tattoos, I like her grungy style, I like her imperfect teeth, I like her music. Maybe I'd like to be her too :p

I dunno, I think this would be a cool wedding dress too...I have a very angry bride thing going on...I seem to be into black on white wedding dresses...and wouldn't mind sporting some tattoos with it either!

ok maybe the heavy army boots would be too much for a wedding but definitely the funky blonde highlight...

i just really like the silhouette of this dress! Especially the top.

Here's the So You Think You Can Dance's really beautiful too. I like the colours in their outfits too...especially the guy's reddish skinny tie.

she also has awesome hair no? i like that one blonde highlight...

just some cool rocker style...

urban outfitters' wedding dresses!

Can you believe it? Another wedding post! Two in a row...what's gotten into me?! It turns out that Urban Outfitters has made a line of Wedding appear in stores next spring! They don't sound very cheap ($2000 - $3000), but apparently the bridesmaids dresses will be more affordable. I'm all for wearing bridemaids dresses as wedding dresses. Do you like what you see? I'm digging a few of them...I have a thing for wedding dresses with black on them...

quirky lil vintage wedding

It's been a while since we've posted a wedding, I must admit, but this beaut was spotted by Allie Sutton (Lynn Bloomer's other gorgeous daughter), who clearly has some good vintage taste :) I have to say, I really love this girl's dress. I'm not a huge fan of wedding dresses, but I would totally wear this! All the details are so awesomely quirky. Take a peek...{more at Sergio Mottolo blog via StumbleUpon ... thanks for pointing it out Allie!}

scarlett's bob

Ok, it hit me. The February blues. Always on Valentine's Day, I want to just chop suey my hair right off and get a whole new look. I might be thinking a bit too drastic, and falling prey to the serious grey skies that linger over Toronto, BUT SERIOUSLY, what do you think about Scarlett Johanssen's new bob? It's like a longer, more modern bob. Like, the top pictures (but I do like the second and third pics too...) Eek, is it too risky? I mean, hair always grows back right?

best dad photographer ever!

I saw these photos on a link posted on my friend Iain's facebook cute and silly are they? Their dad, Jason Lee, is a wedding photographer who CLEARLY likes to have fun with his little munchkins. I definitely will want to have silly shots like these with my own munchies one day...very glad Craigger is silly and a good photographer!
On a separate note, I really like this guy's house! So simple. Dark wood floors, white walls, and I like those blue couches. Coolness! I'm pretty sure I like Jason Lee :) You can read an interview with him and see more pics at Modern Met.

just sittin' on my pearl swing

So, what do ya think of this? A little piece of furniture jewellery?! A strand of pearls to swing or frolick in...perhaps a little extra seating? It's a beautiful piece, designed by German interior designer, Johanna Richter. But do you think you'd have the guts to put it in your home? {via Dwellinggawker via The Designer Pad}

how does jennifer aniston ALWAYS look so darn good?!

Did anyone else see Jennifer Aniston on Conan? So yah, she's a bit awkward, but how does she ALWAYS look so darn good?! Her hair! I mean, her hair! How is her hair like this?!
