Under My Umbrella

This past weekend, after spending a nice afternoon basking in the sun at Dolores Park, I added a few things around the apartment. First, I dug out one of my vintage Japanese umbrellas that was previously owned by my Grandmother. It has been sitting in a box since I acquired it, waiting for the perfect spot to shine. And now it illuminates our entrance hall.

I simply rigged it up there with some plastic zip ties! Quick fix that made the lighting feel much less harsh and more welcoming.

My third roommate finished moving in and with her, came this bookcase that we placed in the kitchen for cookbooks. My donkey's tail cactus (yes, that's really the name) looks great on it, along with the large green vase I found for $5.99.
