Today’s post is the second edition of my summer series. The basic premise: each week throughout the summer, a guest blogger will showcase her favorite item in her apartment. Today, my friend Sarah (who I met studying abroad in Australia) shares her favorite items from her apartment in Boston and her brand-spanking-new apartment in San Francisco. Enjoy! – Jorie
Sarah’s Favorite Thing(s): Big Fork. Big Spoon, and a Boston Print
So this post was originally going to be written about my lovely apartment in Brookline, Massachusetts, which I’ve lived in just about two years, but then I got a job in San Francisco!
I’m currently between locations (literally, I’m flying out the night of the 19th) so my home is actually nonexistent. So I’m breaking the rules already (and I’m one of the first in the series!) and am going to include two things: the first is what I loved most in my Brookline Apartment, and the next is what I will love most in my San Francisco apartment.
In Brookline, my favorite items were none other than Big Fork and Big Spoon, the wall art put up in my kitchen. These gems are from Pier 1 and were bought to fill up the ample wall space in my kitchen, and to add a bit of fun.
There are many jokes about having a one too many drinks and either having sword fights, or maybe even drinking a margarita from the spoon. They were a great addition to the kitchen in my apartment, and are sadly in storage until I’m able to decorate with them again.
In San Francisco, I have to say I’m most excited to put up this Boston print I bought following the Boston Marathon Bombings this year, with proceeds benefitting the One Fund. I love the simplicity of a design that captures the skyline of a city I love and have left behind but will remain in my heart. Unfortunately, the print is sold out, but was designed by Aaron Bouvier from Hairpin Communications.
