My father-in-law bought a book called “Leaves of Gold” at a local thrift store
And it has a wellspring of knowledge within.
I want to doodle out some of the shorter quotes that I like.
Here is the first!
I’ve never heard this marriage/shears analogy before.
Too funny! But true.
I finally got around to listing some great vintage pieces on my Etsy that I’ve been hanging on to for a long time.
And after getting sidetracked like ten million times,
And looking at all the amazing 1950’s style party frocks,
(And wishing I could find a place online to watch the most recent season of Mad Men before I start my TVFREE2013)
I’ve decided that if MY husband was the President of the US of A,
I would completely deck myself out in Etsy finds and wear only vintage party dresses.
I hope that my husband never becomes the President though,
And I’m really sure that will never happen so I won’t worry about that.
Taking the pictures for the listing is half the fun!
So what do you think – are these dresses Joan, Betty, or Peggy?
I don’t usually stop at yard sales.
I’m one of those annoying people who typically creeps by slowly,
Glances pretentiously around the yard,
And upon seeing nothing worthy, drives off.
Ok I’m not actually a snobby jerk, but you know what I’m saying.
The yard full of primary coloured plastic toys and worn out sporting equipment just doesn’t appeal to me.
Today I hit the jackpot.
A big box of cloth diapers AND
a couple pairs of babyGap skinny jeans!
I could have blown all the cash I had there on cute baby girl clothes for my pretend niece,
But I held myself back. Since my bestbest is expecting a baby boy now too,
This multitude of diapers is hopefully really going to be useful.
(HEY MREEMOW! BOX O FUN, COMING YOUR WAY!)
Also in other news,
This delicious-looking salad was created from stuff in my yard.
Remember that little garden I talked about planting?
Some of the veggies are finally mature enough to eat!
I have an official ad for my music on a blog!
I feel so super incredibly special,
Especially since her art is really sweet.
She even made me look cool. HA! Check it!
In other news,
My brother’s band is playing their first show tomorrow night
They’ll be performing a few songs that I wrote
SO that will be fun to observe!
I tried my hand at screen-printing T-shirts today
And there were things I liked about it
And things I didn’t like
But all in all,
They turned out pretty okay.
See for yourself.
There are many colours and styles,
Because the shirts are all upcycled!
In yet OTHER news
I finally have Spotify.
Who knows how to use it
But eventually I’ll get the hang of it.
I usually do when it comes to these things.
I like “EET” a lot by Regina Spektor.
It has such a nice melody to it.
I made lots of links in this post. I wonder if they will work?
So that is that
And this is this
I found a way to wear my hair while I grow it out that I don’t hate.
I just pin up the mullety business going on in the back
And shwoop the top around until satisfactory
Give it a few squirts of hair-spray
Or some kind of ploppy products and
Hair that I hopefully will stop cutting for a while!
