friday morning fun

Happy Friday! It's raining in Chi-town today, but this morning, I'll have a steaming mug of chocolate-y goodness to keep me company, and lunch with a dear friend this afternoon to look forward to. Tomorrow, while Mr. G works hard on our house, I'll be folding laundry {ugh}, catching up on small-group homework, calling a few friends I haven't talked to in awhile {yay!}, and *hopefully* buying a new computer monitor {we'll see if el husband-o and el credit card-o are both feeling agreeable...}.

Besides accumulating white pieces of furniture and taking pictures of sheet metal, I've recently delved into the wonderful world of Etsy, and I want to share some of my finds with you in the coming weeks. {Note: I used to be overwhelmed by the sheer hugeness of the website. For example, when I searched for "vintage notecard," I got 11,000 hits. Sheesh. But then, I started to enjoy perusing through the different shop pages... sort of like rummaging through shelves at a resale store, you know? Now, it's exciting to poke around and see what sort of things people are making and selling. Totally inspirational, instead of mentally draining.}

Earlier this week, I stumbled across the lovely work of Diana at City Light Photography. From what I can gather, she likes both photography and books just as much as I do {!!}, her prints are nostalgically awesome, and she offers free shipping in the US {YES!!!}. Here's a sampling of her work, all available as fine art prints, notecards, etc. You can click on each picture to go directly to the item on her site. {I'm thinking about getting the first image and framing it for Christmastime}:

So pretty and lovely, yes? Go check out her shop, and enjoy your weekend!
