Not a Saturday morning goes by where I don’t start craving pancakes! Warm and straight off the griddle, it would take one strong will to say no to a giant stack of pancakes.

Whose apartment or home doesn’t need a little feng shui makeover every now and again? In my case, stuff was taking over my tiny living space and my life.
Knick knacks, old letters, and clothes I never wore any more. All had to go, except for the books.
I have a sentimental attachment to books, and I’m never able to part with my favorites – of which there are many. And then there’s my college text books, which I MAY need one day…for something I’m sure. Some grammar debate that can only be solved by my Introduction to English Grammar, Volume 1, or something along those lines.
With a limited number of shelving space and growing frustration, a good friend directed me to this great little post from a site called Apartment Therapy. This website is chock-full of ideas for apartment dwellers, seeking to add organization and beauty to their living space.
I love the pictures featured here, filled with clever ways to stack your books, with or without the help of a bookshelf. I love the books stacked in the fireplace (top), but I’m pretty sure if I had an awesome fireplace like that, I’d use it for making cozy fires instead.
So check out the site. It’s really amazing, with many creative ideas we could all learn from. You guys have any tips for making the most out of a small space?

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of coffee, coffee, coffee! At least once a week, I’ll treat myself to a latte from our local coffee house, The Naked Lounge. They make the most amazing drinks, and I’m always dazzled by the gorgeous art work for each cup (one of my favorites is pictured above). Curious, I searched around on youtube and found this great little video. Now I’m really inspired to try it myself, especially with the chocolate sauce, yum! Any baristas out there who know more about coffee art?
