if i was not going out camping in a dusty cold desert for thanksgiving, i could be thankful at home licking my paws with this exact look on my face.
all that said, i am very thankful, but will be questioning it for a few days.

watch this

i am sure these guys hate to be referred to as cute, but how cute are they? they are all photographers that pack up and travel around together, taking random pictures and goofing around. do you think that they would need a personal chef on their rv?

i seriously need a haircut.
i have had the same long shaggy layered cut for ages. i cant have anything that requires tools, including a brush, that pretty much means a cut without a style. but this may work, and i do love jenny lewis and her hair.

emily wong drew this and she seems rad.

this whole blog thing was created to challenge myself. i tend to be a bit shy and reclusive. the sweet blogger betsy has called me out and "tagged" me with a questionaire, i contemplated even acknowledging this, but how rude could that be, so betsy- this is for you, like it or not.

7 things about myself
1. i love pickles- ralphs had the best mini jalapeno pickles that while i stare at in my refrigerator they make my mouth water, no matter what time of day. and there is nothing like a salty spicy okra pickle in a bloody mary, mmm. pickled onions on with carnitas, i cant get enough. i could go on, i love them all.
2. i can tell when it is going to rain because the plates in my ankle starts to ache.
3. my favorite place in the whole world is my bed.
4. my least favorite meat is chicken- i will eat nearly anything but grisel or fat and chicken contains them both most of the time. and if i come across either one, it immediately brings an end to the meal.

5. i arrange weddings but i have reservations about getting married myself.
6. we collect religious icons but do not go to church.
7. i dont own a hairbrush.

so now i need to pass this on to 7 people and post a comment on their blog to let them know (can you tell i feel defeated right now?)

passed to; ok bye blog, mrs. donaghy, caroline the greedy girl, russ, kara, and....

sorry and thanks.

thanks suri

my sentiments exactly.

when it rain it pours, regarding magazines,i have an influx of mags right now and earnark all of them. i remember this in , i think, vanity fair lately.
i have been on the hunt for the perfect new bag. something brightly colored, definately no synthetic leathers, must go over shoulder, on the bigger side, without any bells and whistles, literally. its been a long hard search to no avail.
i would be down for these kate spade bags if it was earlier in the year and white doesn't really work with my messiness, but i do love the kitschiness of them.

I found this website this morning and have been thinking about it ever since. It falls in my fancy fantasy lines and its out in the british vogue.
Sometimes tim burton trips me out, but he never seems to fail in the brilliance, and for him to find someone as fanciful as helen bonham. I would love to see their house. it must be like falling into alice's hole.
this layout revolves around roald dahl's characters. which is sinister and beautiful. make no mind of dahl and his nasty views on the world. he has a wild imagination and wonderful characters.
these are a few of my favorites, ironically enough they are all redheads, teehee

*deep breath*

now that the holiday and humongous election is over and it feels refreshing, i can get back to focusing on the things that i have put aside. namely forgotten pictures, projects and work/food related research. i have stacks of magazines, clipped pictures, taken pictures, trinkets and books that have been begging for a little attention. the dust need to be blown of and i have be reminded that there was a reason they have been lying around.
there has been a lot of teasing around the house because i leave unfinished projects in corners. i will post them slowly as i finish them. soon there will be beautiful light fixtures, painted portraits, doggie sweaters, embroidery and jewelry to show.
i am going to filter out the pictures that i randomly collect from magazines. I have never actually figured out why i do this, but i do. so i need to create a scrapbook with them. not your heart cut out shaped, glue gunned button type, just you average composition book with sketches and pasted pictures.
the pictures in my camera date back to the beginning of this past summer. i have promised people pictures that they forsurely have forgotten and blog posts that are undoubtedly passe now. a few (many) hours in front of the computer is all i need and couldn't seem to find. a rainy sunday afternoon and nice bottle of shiraz would help.

no more excuses.
