i always feel like the best way to get to know someone is to see where they live – a home can tell so much about a person. we’re going to be exploring more homes of fp girls here on the blog and i thought i’d start with my own.
i’ve been living in old city, philadelphia for about a year now since moving back east from san francisco. old city is my favorite part of philly because its rather small and my closest friends live in about a two block radius – as well as my favorite coffee shop, record store and bar. i don’t spend much time at home but i view my place as a safe haven when i need to relax, listen to music and be alone with my thoughts.
this buddha is one of my most treasured possessions – i got it from my dad, who used to collect them. the beatles white album is my favorite record of all time, and i found this original copy at a thrift store in ocean beach san diego.
this is actually a lamp that is currently being used as a hat rack :)
more of my favorite things… jewelry box that holds some rings and trinkets that are very special to me. i still ask my eight ball for advice when i can’t make decisions. a lucky candle, favorite photo and drawing i did of jimi hendrix.
i needed a place to hang my necklaces so i put a few nails in the wall.
the majority of my closet is free people – not because i work here, it was always that way :)
i saw someone with this cardboard sign on haight street in san fran and i thought it was awesome.
photos of places i’ve been and my favorite grateful dead poster.
the majority of the artwork i have hanging right now is concert-related.
this little antique mirror table unfortunately does not belong to me, but i love it so much. i use it to store random little trinkets, photos and concert tickets. and i always have candles burning!
my fridge – my favorite quote of all time is in the center.
another quote i love, from a jimi hendrix song. the postcard at top right was sent to me when i got the job at free people and i thought it was the sweetest thing ever. and fun fact about me – i’m a certified bartender in san francisco :)
and last but certainly not least – this is my cat, jam <3
