sour grapes

Oh my...what a week. I've been busy all around and now I'm exhausted. I'm sooo glad it's the weekend! Phewww! I'm lacking creativity and magic right now due to my busy work week. I should be back to normal by the end of the weekend. I can't wait for my magical NYC retreat in 2 weeks!

I'm not sure if I'm digging this because of the mood I'm in, but I really adore the poison black lipstick with the cotton candy blue and sugary pink. Betsey Johnson, I love you. You always get me, no matter what mood I'm in.

I hope you all have a wonderfully sweet weekend.

You sunk my battleship!

I've decided I need to try and build this here fish mobile submarine thing. Hearing about the discovery of this lost ship has gotten me excited about what it all looks like inside and out and about the lost treasures it holds. It's been held captive by the deep blue for almost a century!!! Here is a picture of what the battleship looked like before it's doom. You can also get the rest of the story here [with video footage!!!!! weee!].

The sea and all her secrets are always so fascinating to me so I'm sorry if this isn't as exciting for you as it is for me! I hope you all have a fantastic weekend, I'm gonna go and explore more of the deep blue sea, unfortunately, online. Geez, why couldn't I have been born a mermaid instead?!

New York, New York

Ok, so it's official! Chris and I will be flying to NYC next month for a little vacation! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! There are so many things I want to do, I think I might actually start writing a list just so I don't forget everything! I have actually only been to NYC once so I'm not real familiar with the "hot spots". I would like to know some good restaurants, thrift/antique stores and what not, so all you people that know the city like the back of your hand, please fill me in! I also want to know where I can find some good macaroons. Can you believe I have NEVER had one before?! I have been seeing them everywhere and I'm dieing to try one!

movin on up

Just got these pictures today from Lilly's graduation. She had on a little graduation cap and the string was pulling back all her hair on her face. It was pretty funny looking.

Here she is showing off her grad hat and Chris is doing his best Grouper fish face.

Movin on to these feather eyebrows. I have had this song stuck in my head lately. I love ittt. Todd, you are super fantastic!

Have any of you ladies/gents seen this bralet from Prada? I'm quite fond of it even though it's a bit risque for me.

Sorry I'm a bit scattered today.

babes in toyland

1. Erin Fetherston’s F/W 09 Dolls in Toyland was amazing! It was full of wonderful textures, whimsy, masks, silly hats, and colors. I love it!

2. Ms. Bardot, you and your big hair are unbelievable. Please show me how you do it. I've had dreams about having a pouf like yours. ...sigh...

Smitten would very much describe how I'm feeling right now. My hunny sent me a dozen of red roses this morning! What a nice little surprise! They instantly cheered me up and brightened my day. I'm so in looove with him and I'm so in love with Smitten by Stephanie. I've seen her work a while back and I thought today would be a perfect day to show case it! So enjoy.

P.S. 1 more day til Valentines Day! :D:D:D teehee

Hope you all have a wonderful wonderful [& romantic ooh la la] weekend!!!

I'm finished! I'm finished! Here is Stormie, the sad rain cloud. I'm sending him and Cleatus off to Cali today. They might be in the new issue of Stuffed Magizine! I'm really nervous/excited. I hope they will make the cut. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I also finished the Domo I was making for my friend!

[Sorry for the crappy pics & thank you, Chris hunny for being my lovely hand model!]

The Snow Queen

This enchanting editorial came from Vogue UK. I instantly fell in love with this one[see the rest here]. It's so so magical looking! I just want to jump in and turn my hair into a big pouf and wear all of these amazing ensembles while laying down on that bed full of swans and pillows. Tim Walker, you amaze me every time.

luv 2 luv u

I don't know about you all, but I LOVE these seasonal candies. The white and pink ones are my favorite. Yum yum. Here are some conversation heart cakes I found on Ezra Pound Cake[recipe included!].

Did any of you get to watch the Charlie Brown Valentines Day special last night? Oh how I love that boy Charlie Brown!

Violet: Charlie Brown, we've been feeling awfully guilty about not giving you a Valentine this year. Here, I erased my Valentine from this one. I'd like you to have it.
Schroeder: Hold on there! What do you think you're doing? Who do you think you are? Where were you yesterday when everyone else was giving out Valentines? Is kindness and thoughtfulness something you can make retroactive? Don't you think he has any feelings? You and your friends are the most thoughtless bunch I've ever known. You don't care anything about Charlie Brown. You just hate to feel guilty. And now you have the nerve to come around one day later and offer him a used Valentine just to ease your conscience. Well let me tell you something - Charlie Brown doesn't need your -
Charlie Brown: Don't listen to him! I'll take it!

Lucy is so silly yet brilliant.


I wonder if he is a wizard in disguise?

Here is my "Cowardly Lion". I know it may sound a little coo coo, but I personally believe he is a reincarnated male model.

times a ticking

Stormie's current condition

Domo's current condition

I'm pretty much on time with getting these bad boys done. I just need to stuff them full of fluff and sew them up! I still think the Domo idea was very cute and creative. I hope his lady friend loves it. Valentines Day is in 5 more days and I seriously can't wait [lol]. Check out the Love Story Clutch by Marc Jacobs[buy it here]. Perfect for Valentines Day, wouldn't you agree? Sooo cute!

Marc Jacobs Love Story Clutch, wood you be mine? Please?! [teehee]
