a bunch of random pretty stuff

sorry for the lack of posts....I'm entering the Finals Are Coming Up And Everybody Better Be Studying But In The Meantime We'll Give You Tons of Homework Anyway zone. And let's not forget the pleasant final-projects-due-in-a-week deadline looming. Not much time for crafting there.
Anyway, I've been knitting two things at once--one at school (everybody's seen me be all Crazy Yarn Lady constantly running around while untangling myself from the giant wad of yarn)--and one at home. A rug and a jacket. I'll post pics when I'm finished :)
Both projects don't exactly get finished in a day, sooo to distract you I will post random pretty pictures I've been gathering for future inspiration.
The inspiration for my rug....kind of

A pretty headband!!

Something I meant to do for Easter....oh well. There's always.....uh.....summer equinox?

This would be a pretty color to dye my hair. Or at least streaks of it.

I want to make this out of a hideous old dress sitting in my closet.

THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL THING. and I could make it out of t-shirts! It's surprising how many supersoft luxury clothes are made of jersey cotton--aka your well-worn sleep shirt.

I want a drawer like this. No, scratch that. I want a HOUSE like this.



Something I will make out of felt in the near future. Really. When I get a pillow form and some more felt. ;)

This is how I want my room to does everyone understand why I hunted all over Chinatown for paper lanterns?

I love love LOVE everything citrus right now. It's so happy and bright and....can these cookies be sitting on my table now please?
This is a really long post but I also feel the need to introduce everyone to a phenomenon known as googlewhacking. People may say its for losers with no life but they are wrong. It's excellent distraction therapy.
Exhibit A: I'm writing a paper and I have writers block. I googlewhack 'crapulent jesus', get 52,000 results, marvel at how much Jesus must have drank at the last supper*, and suddenly I am hit by a divine burst of inspiration!

*contrary to popular belief, 'crapulence' is actually some disease from drinking too much I think. That didn't sound so firm but it has to do with drinking, not pooping. I am sure of that.
