A bit of random

Friday, May 20, 2011




This is a random post for you - It's Friday and I'm way distracted and I want a nap - but I had to at least share these two things, k? Cheers to the w/e!

/ BOUNCY BALLS! I'd like to meet the person who doesn't appreciate a bouncy ball - they are the coolest. And I guess somewhere along the way they let thousands and thousands of them loose down a street in San Francisco for a commercial - and this is part of the photo series! (via honestlywtf)

/ This past week we finally got to (kind of) see our new flat (after signing a lease without having set foot in it, we were kind of nervous) but it is beauutiful! It is still being worked on but it's light, spacious and...has my favorite type of floor. I can't wait to move in at the end of June! I took a couple distracted pictures and this is one of them - sorry for the lameness..but it kind of gives you an idea!

Anna Walker said...

Bouncy Balls?!!? I would be SO afraid that they would break car windows, or hurt people or something like that! It's a great idea though!

Great Job on your new flat! :D It's great! Have fun moving! :)

If I ever meet the person who doesn't like bouncing balls, I just might have to bounce one of his head {I intentionally used "he" here...I know the ball hater would not be a girl...I just know it}

{epps...out of context, this comment could seem inappropriate with all the "ball" talk...sorry}

PS: YOUR FUTURE FLAT LOOKS PRETTY

Diana said...

I'd love it if you photoshopped those two together so all those bouncy balls were in your new place, and you'd be all "what? I live with all these bouncy balls."

That flooring is so YOU!

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

I love that bouncy ball video!!! I ran it a few years ago when I first saw it, I think it's one of the prettiest random acts of beauty I've ever seen :)

Your new place looks amazing! Love those herringbone floors, I've been wanting some for my home! And the light looks beautiful!

I loved your random pics! The first one is so fun, makes me smile; and your flat looks so bright and vintage. I can't wait to see more pics of your place :)

inHERshoes said...

i love a place with lots of glass/windows so light can get through. there is a window in every room in my house, yes, even the bathroom!

Eva @ Four Leaf Clover said...

Wow, weird.. I just today checked out Honestly WTF for the first time in a long time and saw this post and now here it is, ha! I remember wondering if that commercial was real or not (but mostly I loved the Jose Gonzales song that went along with it :) ).

Also.. already loving the look of your apartment! Very brave of you to have signed the lease without even seeing it! But that completely makes sense here in Switzerland!

Oh to Be a Muse said...

love the first photo.

do you remember that movie 'don't tell mom the babysitter's dead' where it has that scene where they just bounce around a store on bouncy balls. that's when i knew i wanted a bouncy ball of my own!

vojacque said...

i love the simplicity and freshness of your place! and the design of the floor! can't wait to see the final results when you move in.

Alice said...

+1 for Jose Gonzales

Bouncy balls are pretty much fantastic and I can't wait to see the finalized flat. I'm sure it will be gorgeous.

I walked by a stray bouncy ball this week on my daily walk, right after walking by an abandoned baseball - and today a tennis ball. I have no idea what all this means but I feel a new collection starting! Excellent photo! Love the light in your new place.

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

i LOVE that bouncy ball commercial. also, if there is a bouncy ball any place we go, the hubbers must pick it up and play with it, until he almost breaks something.

congrats! it looks gorgeous and i am super jealous. my german apt was the pits. :P

pop pop portraits said...

woot woot! love the floors!

Mat said...

i want to see this commerical!

LyddieGal said...

Oh man, I love that commercial! Sony done good there. And that was how I first found out about Jose Gonzalez and The Knife (who originally did the song Heartbeats from the commercial)

Kind of random and off topic, but they are both awesome and i wouldn't have found them had it not been for that commercial.
