Home Tour: My House

I have a blast photographing home tour posts, and last year I had the camera turned around on my own home for my friend Mattie's blog. (Can you believe I kept it clean long enough to get through every room?) Some of my favorite shots of my place are below, and you can view the entire post at Somethings.


Dia De Los Muertos Display Calavera Skeleton Paper Mache Papeleria
  I made a Dia De Los Muertos display in our window for Halloween, and we decided to keep Skelly (a Hometapes family heirloom) in the window all year round.

Louisianna Alphabet red asian chandelier antique home decor
My roommate bought me this crawfish alphabet print while running around junk shops in New Orleans with the prop department for "Beasts of the Southern Wild." The silver stars are leftover decorations from Julian Koster's Music Tapes caroling tour a few years ago. 

Succulents crystals terrarium owl cactus cacti glass potted plants
 Clear glass votive holders make handy pots for tiny succulents, especially if you catch them 50% off at Hobby Lobby. I've had some of these plants almost four years. The long skinny crystal is selenite, a gift from a friend to protect our home.

I mixed my own custom colored chalkboard paint for the kitchen. My dad and I went to the range with these vintage targets (unintentionally vintage... he keeps things a longgg time :) and I'll be framing them soon. Something about them reminds me of an old Bond movie.

Later on I realized something was missing from these home tour photos...

Now that's more like home!
