apartment parade

While apartment hunting this weekend (which has become an affair that is taking over my life - seriously exhausting), I ran into quite a few green sightings: wild flowers for sale, ivy-laced windows, and many more of nature's treats for the weary-eyed. Searching for potential homes in humid city weather is pretty stressful (and sweaty), but my roommate Kelly and I managed to keep sane by enjoying the fun sights along the way on our real-estate-instigated tour. That, and some Dunkin' Donuts coolatas + frequent rest stops in neighborhood gardens. Let the parade continue!

On the way, we met Eric (above), a dapper street-vendor entrepreneur who sells hand-painted light switch covers. Aren't his creations awesome?! He gave me his website address, but clumsy me, I lost the paper. Sorry Eric!

  1. apartment hunting is usually a stressful experience but I can't even imagine doing it in NYC + when the weather is hot and humid! yuck! but I'm glad you were able to make the most of it and I hope you can find the perfect place soon!

  2. i love those switch covers! very cool.

    good luck with the apartment hunting!
