eccentric house

In 2009, I named my first poetry chapbook Eccentric House because it was a compilation of my most stylistically diverse writing. Coincidentally, this year, my roommates and I have combined our belongings to create one of the most eccentric homes in downtown Manhattan, in my humble opinion! Some things are from our parents, some are one-of-a-kind gizmos & gadgets from thrift stores (that framed poster of a Russian beast, those mismatched wine glasses). We're still a work-in-progress, as you saw earlier, but now we have...

A finished (albeit messy) living room!
(Leather couch + trunk coffee table + oriental rug)

A collection of cups with other people's names on them!
Creepy? Or hilarious!?

Mustache stickers! (AKA Left-over party favors...)

More to come of course. Two years ago, we painted our cabinets. Obviously we need to step it up! It's ON, eccentric house. It's on.
