Your walls look beautiful.

I can't believe nobody has mentioned this yet, but I was drinking an Arizona Green Tea the other day, and your walls look just like their containers (the juice-box ones, i'm not sure about their glass bottles)...the teal with the cherry blossoms. 

Wanna know the hilarious part?  That's totally what inspired me.  I was drinking some this summer and said "I should paint my walls like this bottle".  TOTALLY.  I couldn't find the exact green of the bottle in the "oops" paint section, so I settled for a lovely aqua.
You totally called it!

I second the cherry blossom love...
But even better, where did you get that lamp?!

Flea market holy grail -they sell online at deadlynightshades.com for like $80, but I found this one at a flea market last summer for $15.  Brand new.  The people selling it laughed at me, and I laughed right back.  OWNED!

Thanks!  Yeah, my partner and I are both completely swamped with school right now, but as of tomorrow my senior collection is DONE, so I will be posting a ton of pictures with my garments and loverly models.  Then hopefully clothing will be hitting the store!

Ahhh, amazing job! I've done several murals, and I can't believe you finished it all in a couple days! Very well done.

question- HOW did you get that umbrella to stay in the corner like that? I've tried to do the exact same thing and I can't ever get mine to stay...

Sweet, I'm pumped to see it!  Spreading the sunshiney love Smiley

Skaramouche - I got a screw-in hook and placed it about 3 inches down from the ceiling as near to the corner as possible; my parasol has a ring through the bottom of the handle, so i just put that over the hook.  This distance (the distance between hook and ceiling) can vary according to your parasol size and where you want it.  Just experiment by holding the parasol up in the corner, where it touches both walls, and note where the handle hits the corner.  Then stick your hook there!  Easy peasy Smiley
