Patio Living: The Gallery Wall p. 2 : I hope you’ll come over and visit me at my new blog Patio Living . I just finished my first big project - creating a gallery wall! Hooray! patioliving : To hang our gallery wall, we used the newspaper template method we read about on Young House Love . Basically you measure out the dimensions of your frames and then create templates of them cut out of newspaper. Then you tape them all onto the wall in the arrangement you have [...]
Blog: Erica likes music
Patio Living: The Gallery Wall p. 1 : patioliving : At long last! The gallery wall is complete! But before I get to that, I’ll start at the beginning. As I mentioned, we decided to pretty much replicate the Ikea Ribba Frame Gallery Wall tutorial from Heart Tree Home . Seriously, there is no way we could have managed this without that tutorial….
Patio Living : I started a new blog! I hope you’ll check it out :) It’s all about home decor and DIY projects and my attempts to have a grown up apartment
I suspect not! I really miss blogging but am at a loss with how to start / what to post again. I really don’t have the time to blog about music in any meaningful way these days. Sad face. Being a grownup is oh-so-blaaaaaaah.

“ He said ‘The sun gives life, and it takes it away But like all the greats, it’ll burn out someday’ She said ‘I don’t mind, I don’t want to get bored I don’t want to end up beached on this shore I want to be that star’ And then I can shine for you, and then I’ll burn for you.

Stars - “We Don’t Want Your Body” Stars’ new album The Five Ghosts comes out tomorrow! Loving everything I’ve heard so far, especially this song. It has the bones to have been an incredibly popular mainstream pop song (somewhere in Get Him To The Greek, Diddy is pounding his hands on desk and saying, “This could have been a game changer!”) but thankfully instead is a gorgeous Stars song. Stars’ upcoming tour dates: 9/22 - Rochester, NY — Water Street Music Hall 9/23 - [...]
