People Who Inspire Me.....

Hiya All! Busy, busy,busy here and one more week of grad class to go! Woohoo! I still haven't gotten close to finishing my kitchen back splash...Boo...who knew finding a way to cut glass tile was going to be so difficult? Lets just say I'm having a learning experience. Eventually it will get done and I will give ya'll a look see! But until then, I wanted to take a moment and do some random posts about people who inspire me in my life. I hope they inspire you too!

My Flickr friend: Mr and Mrs Atomic

Not only are they the cutest couple but they also happen to have some mad cool style! I met Mrs Atomic over on Flickr quite a few years ago. I lusted over her things and she lusted over was just meant to be that we should run across each other online. She's my west coast sister from another mother! I mean look what she has tattooed on her wrist...yes, that's right, that's my lamp Mr Sparkles...and yes, I name my lamps, so what! Mrs. Atomic loved my lamp so much she went out and found her very own, but in black. I promise Mrs. Atomic I will leave you Mr Sparkles in my will...that is if you can pry him outta my cold dead hands!

I love lamp!

Wait, I haven't told you all one of the best things about Mr. and Mrs Atomic...they live in an Eichler...with a pool!! Here's a little story about how they came about getting their hands on their mid-century dream.... To Alluring to Fail. Dreams are possible!! Below are a few pics of their mid-century Eichler....I wonder if they have a guest room??

And.....If their house and all their cool mid-century pieces wasn't enough, something else I love about Mr. and Mrs. Atomic.... they go on the best kitschy roadside trips and take lots of drool worthy pictures! Texas, Palm Springs, Yellow Stone, Arizona....ya just never know where these two might pop up.. so keep your eyes peeled!
