Knittin' Kitten Caps

Is it such a crime that shops like SarabRose on Etsy make me want a pet more then ever?  I mean, the cats in these photos don't look miserable...and doesn't a knitted cap make everything look better? Also couldn't you just imagine a fat orange cat in my arms wearing a knitted Portland Trailblazer ball cap? Heck, make that two cats in two caps! Keep up the good work SarabRose, truly!

Work It

It's been just over five months since I started my new job. The drawings above depict my experience. Drawing number one is cat with an ice cream cone on his kooky head saying "coo coo" (a familiar state of mind over the last months, sans the actual cone on my head).  So much to do so much to learn. Drawing two,  a seatbelt (not much to say there beyond the obvious)...that took place around last week.  Which leads me to drawing three, a cat, paw thumbs up held high, saying "woopity woop." Work is good.

Baby Harp

I had the pleasure of spending some time with my sister in law Jessyka, and my dear sweet baby niece Harper Joyce (not to mention some wonderful family members in the mix). It seems when a dear darling babe is in the picture, all of the attention takes a dramatic shift...and you sort of only pay attention to the sweet little baby doll (everyone else you're not forgotten, just not as cuddly and sweet in my frickin' arms).  Love this little darling shanya  punim.

The Jarmels...For Your Listening Pleasure

I randomly purchased a compilation record at a thrift store with this very song on it. I just can't get enough. Can you?

Bedazzled (Guest Bedazzler)

Thank you Alex. I love this dazzling gem eyed goat brooch, but I love the man behind it more (cue the "awwwww" or the "puh-lease" you choose).

Happy Birthday Delicate Doilies

Put your party hats on because Delicate Doilies is one year old! It feels like yesterday we were just a bag of clothing in our closets, and now one year later our vision prevails and we are...what we are (aka your favorite store in the world). Thank you to my dear doily of a friend Shola for being the best half of a store a girl could ask for (not to mention making the incredible outfits/ flier above).  A special thanks to Aljon Reyes, the man behind the camera who is responsible for the snaps above. Please enjoy 20% off the whole store on us with the code birthday till the 21st of February(shop your hearts out)!

I'm on the lookout for sweet little frames like the examples above (sans shipping and handling). Had any luck finding tiny dream frames to strewn about your humble abode with photos remnant of stories from the past? Our apartment, cozy, doting renter's white walls, can always use a spruce here or there.

Red White and Blue... Me Away

Hands down the Red White and Blue on Mcloughlin blvd is my favorite thrift store ever (EVER). Above are just some of the gems I found today, and let me tell you people it was gem upon gem (upon gem upon gem). From the photos above (in progression top to bottom) 1. a vintage Oscar De La Renta  dress (yes, believe it) for two dollars (say it with me now "Oh my lucky stars"). 2. Two vintage brooches at the fine cost of fifty cents a piece. 3. Pastel pink, mint green, and white studded moccasin flats, ninety five cents.  You should check this shop out on a Saturday because it's fifty percent off the whole bilmeny store (thank me later). Remember, it's cash only so keep your pockets filled with dollar dollar bills y'all.
