I'm a little abrasive and am sometimes known as '80 Grit.' So I love sparkles and fluffy things that make me cry (seriously), and all that girly stuff, especially vintage, but I also like loud music, not showering regularly, and tattoos. After all, I am pretty bad ass. I live with CTA, an old cat, and the infamous Naughty Naughty Bacon in the photographer's old house on Commonwealth. I love to make pretty things and reading beat-nik books. I like wedding planning even though that probably jinxes my shot at one. If I wasn't so lazy, I'd get a lot more accomplished, but right now, I'm ok with that.
OK, I'm in love....with an appliance. Big Chill and Northstar put out a line of stoves, refrigerators, and now, dishwashers that are killer reproductions from the 50's. They come in an amazing array of colors. I've decided that I need a few houses so that I can indulge in a few different color themes. At the moment, orange-its so rich, is my favorite!
So we almost had a tornado yesterday in little old Connecticut! I sat outside watching the sky darken until it started down-pouring. Where I live, we missed the worst of it, but neighboring towns were ravaged by wind, rain, hail, and lightning.
So I just got the new Incubus and even though its a greatest hits and new song combo- its a double disc and the new songs are AMAZING! Some are a little more 'poppy' than I'd expect, but they grow on you. I'm addicted to 'Martini.'
I also can't stop listening to Cake since I saw them last month. It was magical! They gave away a flippin' apple tree. Not a little one either- it was 8 feet tall! I'm saving up to have them play at a huge party...or my wedding!
OK, so I saw Dolan Geiman featured on etsy a while back and I've become obsessed. I love the work and the creators, Dolan and Ali just capture the old south perfectly, or at least perfectly to a dam yankee.
Today is the beginning of a new day, of a new age. So blogging is selfish, but whatev. For me, its a chance to remember all the stuff I find and be able to remember it at a later date for my own uses. Maybe you'll like something and insert it into a functioning memory bank. Maybe not. Either way, here goes.
