This is fab-u-lous! Have you had a chance to check out crgslst? Such coolness. It’s a multi-city search tool for Craigslist, perfect for looking at furniture or for apartments in any city according to whatever your little search terms tell it to look for — and boom! In your face, all at once, multiple city style. This isn’t offered on Craigslist (why?) and it drives me pretty crazy. I found out that crgslst may end up getting shut down just as other services in past were removed because they may be violating a few terms over at Craigslist, but let’s just hope that’s not the case. I don’t know about you, but I lived on that one tool that was built allowing you to view everything visually all at once. I can’t recall the name… And it’s still out there but it’s nearly dead and gone. Why doesn’t Craigslist beef up and build all this technology into their site themselves? I really don’t get it… They are the masters online — when you think of finding an apartment at least in America and Canada, you think of Craigslist. Why aren’t they doing more? I’ve been wondering this for a few years actually. Why don’t they charge all those brokers to list their fee apartments on their site? Why don’t they have ads? I seriously need to know this stuff. :)
Do you remember when we talked about the SeaCloth store in Greenwich, Connecticut last summer on decor8? Thankfully now they have an online store where they carry lots of the things that are sold in-store. These finds below really put me in the mood for Spring so I thought I’d share…
I think I want that scrapbook, it looks perfect for transforming into a coffee table inspiration book filled with images of your favorite things to share with your guests. You know, a make your own coffee table book with clippings from magazines, vacation photos, art collages, doodles, and anything else that inspires you.

Elysa over at GenPink, a blog about being a twenty something career-minded girl of the world working to balance work/family while still having a great time with fashion, chasing boys, and all the latest gadgets, asked me to write a guest post today. The topic? I wrote about the first time I stepped foot into my own apartment and how I got started as a single woman long before marriage and my thirties kicked in. It’s rather revealing, but it felt good to write about my horrible first apartment experience and the depression I dealt with back at the age of twenty-two and how decorating and a little DIY inspired change.
Read it here. Thank you again Elysa for including me today over at GenPink!
