Looking for a better way to store things without the use of boring plastic containers? Try storing your seasonal clothing, cords/electronics, craft supplies, photo's and random junk in old luggage. They can be stacked against a wall, used as a nightstand or a coffee table, or can be stored under a bed or larger piece of furniture. Any way you store it or use it, it will add a decorative touch to any space in the home. I plan on shopping around at my local second-hand stores in the near future for as many as I can find. I have plans to paint and reupholster these to sell and use in my own apartment.

I've been looking into getting a visor for my helmet for a while now. Currently, I have an open face helmet, which I prefer because a full face helmet makes me feel claustrophobic. Really. However, when you ride, you're usually hit it the face with wind, bugs, water, and what ever else happens to be on the pavement or in the air. That, and wearing glasses can hurt my head after only 20 minute of ride or so and there's always the re-adjusting that goes along with it. A bit ago, Aaron showed me this bubble visor. It looks a little crazy, but I can't get enough of it's retro styling.
I'm looking at getting a Biltwell helmet and Aaron will paint it the same color as my tank (most likely a teal color). We both love a teal and gold combination so it will probably end up looking like the last picture. Also, in my search for a new helmet/visor, I came upon this video on the Bell website. Nevermind the fact that the art show takes place in Portland (Portlandia, anyone?) but I love a custom painted helmet and I know a few people who will appreciate this video as well.

I've been gathering a bit of inspiration for a small denim line that I want to produce. Here is the whole lot of them, not narrowed down or focused yet. This collection of images is going to grow week to week. At some point, I'll post my inspiration board once I have it put together.
