Good News Bad News

Good news!! I got my sequin pants...




Bad news...they fit and I LOVE them. They feel like sweatpants. And it's not really bad news for me but for all those who e-mailed me to say how much they hated them (I am not going to mention any names-Heather). If you see me wearing them with a big grin on my face just look away, let me enjoy my bubble of happiness while it last.

Vintage Palette





While looking around the web I saw this wonderful piece of art by Nicole Cohen of Sketch 42



Close up in all its glory.
Other great art here.
It got me thinking about this...


Vintage artist palette. Isn't it great?
I don't think I ever told you I was collecting these. And by collecting I mean I found two, Ebay and Etsy. Sadly I sold one, the better one, in that damn booth of mine. And I probably didn't tell you I no longer have my booth. Another casualty of my creative stroke. Plus, I seem to miss the things I sold too much!! I love the texture and mix of colors on these plus it's a little unexpected, don't you think?

Gobble, Gobble, Bracelet, Joy

Happy Thanksgiving!!
 I wasn't going to post today, but then I saw this over at Birds of a Feather. 
Warning...you might cry. But in a good way and it will make you less likely to yell at your kids today. 



And best of all this fabulous bracelet can be yours!!
I have already ordered mine!!
So read the post here
You will laugh, you will cry, you will hug your family, you will buy a bracelet and be filled with joy and isn't that what Thanksgiving is all about???

PS I am very thankful for all of you!! Especially since I was a slacker for 8 months and didn't post at all.

Gobber Gobber


 If you are new to my blog you probably think I misspelled gobble gobble. 
  

 If you are an old friend you know I am talking about Butterball's gobbers: his lobster bathing suit he wore everyday for 8 months straight then off and on for almost 2 years (and yes, I let him). As you can see from the above picture he treated them like a neutral and really got into pattern mixing. I have had several people ask if he is still wearing them and the answer is...




Yes, yes he is. Not every day and not the exact pair that saw so much action. Sadly he finally outgrew the original gobber seaboot (lobster bathing suit). 



Just when I thought they were gone for good Old Navy rolled out a new and improved pair. Am I a lucky girl or what??!! This time I bought two pairs so I could at least wash one while he was sleeping. 
Good times.

Have a great weekend and many thanks for all your comments and e-mails. It feels good to be back after my creative stroke. I am taking things easy, don't want to over do it since I am still a little shaky.

Would you still love me if....




I wore sequin harem pants?

I'm thinking white shirt, gray sweatshirt and 



These boots.
What? What are you thinking? Cute or crazy?






Here they are on my new style hero from 

Now I should mention that they only come in girl's sizes (meaning children's) so don't get too excited. The chance of them actually fitting is pretty slim, still it's worth a try right?

Check back and I'll let you know how it goes.

MIA


Hey!! I've missed you!!! Many thanks to all who e-mailed and left comments checking on me in my absence. I don't have a good excuse; I just lost all my creativity...it was scary. I think it is slowly coming back. Or at least I hope so. Anyway I wanted to pop in and show you a few things that have been going on around here....


Kitchen before we moved in. 
We did change it a little but not much.


Kitchen Remodel!!!
Can you believe it? Finally!!! 
I am sure I have a better before picture around here somewhere, but this gives you a rough idea of where we started.


During...scary


Almost finished and what is that I see? Mirrored cabinet doors? Yes ma'am!!
Does it give you chills? I know! Me too!!!

There's lots more fun to share...stay tuned!!
Do you like it so far?
