*see more of katrina on her blog | tumblr.

1. favorite designer? i am consistently excited by emma fletcher at lyell. forever ladylike & interesting.
2. favorite restaurant? currently i eat way too many meals at a local cafe called the bakehouse, here in indiana. they also have really good cookies!
3. favorite place to have a drink? it is not often that i drink, normally if i do i'm making cocktails, or something fancy here at home. all of my drink ideas come from tastespotting.
4. what can’t you travel without? an ipod, a good book & a camera
5. last book you read? not counting books i have to read for school (i'm an english major! this takes up all my reading time.) i recently finished her fearful symmetry by audrey niffenegger. i thoroughly enjoyed it.
6. any pets? i have one cat, she lives with my family, her name is lillian. she is pretty great!
7. what’s for breakfast? usually toast with peanut butter, honey, and granola on top of it & wildberry plum green tea. that sounds about right.
8. at age seven, you wanted to be... a teacher, or the owner of a bakeshop. both of these hold true today!
9. biggest self-indulgence? sweets & warm coffee beverages. these two usually come together.
10. favorite place to shop? it really depends on what i am buying, i am a pretty big online shopper, and since i have been trying to change my buying habits to include more handmade & vintage items, i have been on etsy 24/7.
11. whose diary would you most like to read? probably meryl streep's, because she is fantastic, interesting, and mysterious. but if i read her diary, there would be no mystery left! so maybe not.
12. favorite furniture designers? i don't follow furniture design too much, but like everyone else i quite like ray & charles eames.
13. car? i am maybe too in love with the idea of an old, maroon, volvo station wagon.
14. always in your closet? cardigans. i think that is about 80% of it, in a rainbow of colors.
15. hobbies? i just took up knitting, and it seems to be going well! i also read on a pretty regular basis & write.
16. hero? my grandmother, who was one heck of a woman. i barely got the chance to know her, but i find out i am more like her every day! she was a lady of letters though, and those live on, and i learn more about her all the time.
17. what piece of art would you most like to own? i would love to own a joseph cornell shadow box, alas this is likely impossible. but a girl can dream!
18. favorite vacation spot? i am not a big jet-setter, i stay mostly within the midwest, but i really enjoy visiting chicago. i do nerdy things like visit the natural history museum.
19. favorite musicians? reverting back to a band that has been inspiring me since high school, all the members of death cab for cutie are equally inspiring to me. they make me truly want to know more about music, and the creative process behind it. others include: jason molina, denison witmer, justin vernon, emily haines, and david bazan, just to name a few!

    I used to have that Volvo sedan. My chimney fell on top of it in the Santa Cruz earthquake of 1989.

    I am enjoying your blog :)
