our happy house

I guess I slept on this when it came out a couple years ago… The Juan Maclean were just about my fav in 2004. Should have kept up.

HOW I FEEL IN SPRING 2010:

You came to me from my history
to sweep all the dust away
No, I never thought I would see today
So I thank you for just being so damn
excellent
You are so excellent
You saved me from a rainy day
And melted all the clouds in the sky
Yes, I always wished it could be this good
So I thank you for just being so damn
excellent
You are so excellent
You still held me near when I was far away
Waiting for our sunny day
Living your life but always in mine
Thank you for just being so damn
excellent
you are so excellent
You brought me home to this happy house
You’re the reason for the width of my smile
Stay with me, don’t lose me now
So I can thank you for just being so damn
excellent
You are so excellent
excellent
You are so excellent
Launch me into space

James and I own a print (its in our living room above the stereo stuff) by the artist Andy Gilmore. I can’t remember how I first discovered his work, but I instantly loved it for the colors and simplicity. The print we own looks really nice against that mustard yellow wall in our living room. Today I was looking at some of his new work after I saw it posted on a design blog. Here are two of my favorites:
