“A robin builds a nest for robins. A seagull builds a nest for seagulls. They don’t copy each other – or build themselves nests as described in The Birds’ Decorating Magazine.” ~ Dorothy Draper

I’ve had a couple of friends react with shock and pity upon entering my apartment as it used to look like a cell from the Bridgeport Asylum.  I tell people I’m a minimalist but really I’m just too cheap to invest in decor. But over the year I’ve acquired several odds and ends to make my tiny studio a little more inviting.

This being LA, even at night it’s bright enough to keep a cat awake, hence the necessary window covering.

Gifted necklace from India, and Lunar New Year pictures from a free Chinatown calendar.

Hook organizer I found on the sidewalk.

Easier to find my jewelry this way.

Magazine clippings.

My landlord was amused by this collection.

MTA New York City Subway Map.

And my ‘tea’ table.
