Vintage Biology Poster

Vintage Biology Poster

I’m finding myself more and more drawn to biology charts and posters. I remember finding them in the Country Living magazines my mom bought when I was a little girl and of course you could find them rolled up, hanging above chalkboards in every school classroom. I didn’t think twice about them until now – they’re superbly illustrated and yet maintain a simplistic beauty.

I’ve lived with bare walls for well over 5 years due to Levi’s concept of the minimalistic look. Anytime we’ve had a new guest to our home, they ask if we’ve recently moved in – this is a clear indication that I’ve got to get something on those walls!

These posters are a great way to add some colour and style to your home on a tight budget. For those of you that are thrifty and like to rummage, you’re bound to stumble upon these posters at thrift stores, flea markets and estate sales. For the rest of you, you can find them online on the following sites.

Must Have This!

Indoor Stove

As Liz Lemon would say, “I want to go there”.

I fell in love when I came across this beauty on one of my favourite sites NotCot. For some strange reason, I keep thinking that I’m going to go home and find this in my living room…fingers crossed!

My Dream Wall

Most people talk about their dream house but I’d be happy with just this wall!

My Camera

Me and Abs

Abby and I were out for a walk the other night and it was so mild that I decided to pull the camera out. You see there is a direct relation between warm weather and photo taking for me. I’m continually snapping all summer long but when fall comes my camera seems to go into hibernation. I’ve decided that’s going to come to an end because you know what, fall is awesome too and it deserves to be included in some photos!

Polaroid Instant Camera

Fujifilm Instax Instant Camera

Good news for those of you that love the novelty and nostalgia of the instant camera. Thanks to “The Impossible Project“, who’s mission is to re-invent and re-start production of analog film for vintage instant cameras, Polaroid has announced that they’ll be relaunching their “One Step” sometime in early 2010 – they’ll even be producing limited editions!

Soon after Polaroid announced the discontinuation of their instant film in 2008, Fuji launched a line of four different instant film cameras. I have yet to test any of these out due to the aesthetic of the camera – it’s gotta look good you know!

I’m a little disappointed that these won’t be out in time for Christmas….would have been a fun family gift!
