Hand-me-downs are not only amazing in clothing form.  Since moving into my own place I've learnt that the furniture form is just as amazing.  My grandma lives in toronto and basically cleared out her storage space for me.  This large hunk of wook desk top wasn't in very good condition, so why not spice them up a little with a glossy plaid print.

I work at a jazz lounge and as a result I find I sell quite a few manhattan's.   Yesterday was a fairly slow night, so I had time to think about how when i placed the maraschino cherry on top of the cocktail the colors are stunning together.  The color of the glossy yellow brown of the rye and the vibrant red of the cherry are so wrong that it's so right.  Considering I just moved into a new place I've decided I'm going to decorate my room in such a palette.

I am kitchenless at the moment and yearn for somewhere to cook a nice meal for myself and my roomies.  Who knows perhaps a dinner party is in the itinerary.  I just need to wait for some special guests to arrive...
