More Catching Up!

Don't you just love getting mail?! (I mean the good kind, not bills or junk!)

Well lucky me, my mom decided to start sending me handmade postcards! Here's the first one! She's the best!

As a member of the Benevolent Postcard Society (tehe! it sounds so official!), lookie what I got from a lovely Nova Scotian!

Belated shout-out to Dad on his big 60 day...and the 'cake' to prove it!

Good thing my brother's girlfriend is tiny, otherwise this wouldn't work!

Check out my new roomies...doesn't Diesel look majestic in the Fall, more so if he didn't cry all the time!


I now know that highlighter does stain...finger nails and porcelain counter tops....but makes a creepy Mad Scientist's laboratory!

Sunday was the first official trip to look at bridesmaids dresses. Why are there so many ugly ones?! I know you aren't supposed to upstage the bride, but come on! When the bride is wearing this (Barbados)....I don't think she has anything to worry about! Check out this contender and tell me what you think anyway!

Congrats to the future Mr. & Mrs. on booking these bad boys for your big day! Because, after all, why go traditional when you can go GLAM ROCK?!

Today and tomorrow are your last chances to dig into some Halloween classics: The Nightmare Before Christmas and my personal favorite, Hocus Pocus!

OK, so there's lots of catching up to do!

#1 Can we talk about THIS?! Tim Burton's fashion show. Incredible. I found it over at the very talented Lori Langille's automatism blog. I want to know where I can pick up an enormous skeleton....although it would take a LOT of Martha glitter. And...what about the fact that Mr. Burton himself is do a re-make of Alice in Wonderland! Is there anything more wonderful....oh. Wait. There is. Johnny Depp is in it! ::Sigh::

#2 I'm glad to know that even FU, Penguin could get into the holiday spirit with this one.

#3 What the crap?! What happened to the wonderful, crisp, apple-picking weather? Oh ya, I was in Georgia, where it was 80 degrees. Now it gets awkwardly warm and rains all the time. Gotta love New England.

#4 Leave up to real artists to actually get their work out a season ahead so that customers can buy it before for the season intended. Check out Cart Before The Horse and their amazing Christmas work. And ya ya ya, its on the short list of things to do.

#5 Thanks to a lovely lady, AKA Mom, I have a fully decorate Halloween tree. Black feather branches are adorned with purchased and more importantly, handmade, ornaments. Check out what she can do! What a lucky girl I am!

#6 I had found this print months and months ago and I fell in love with it. A week ago, I had a dream about it and knew it had to be mine!

#7 I started this a few years ago and I've finally dragged out my paints and after replacing a few destroyed brushes, I'm starting in on it again!

#8 My new favorite combo for Halloween are sickly shades of green and black. With a whole lot of glitter and a black wreath, TADA!

Anyway, I have plenty more to share so stay posted!

Just a lil sumthin sumthin....

OK, so I apparently suck at this "I'm back!" thing. So part of it comes from the fact that I'm still really upset, another from the fact that I'm still sort of sick, another from my busy-ness at work, and the final piece of the puzzle is that I don't have my own computer anymore. I don't have a place to dump all my crazy and random photos or a comfy seat to sit in and type away. I will though...or I'll just steal one. Here's some etsy candy to hold you over....

P.S. Let's keep these halloween-y items in perspective...they were ALL in my favorites, i.e. I didn't search for any of them. I have a problem....

I'm back....

So right now, I'm sitting in Eastman, Georgia, about an hour southeast of Macon, on my best friend's laptop. The house just shook. Twice. Apparently, two airplanes broke the sound barrier. Or one broke it twice. In the other room, sit my best friend and two other Air Traffic Control students, who are taking an on-line quiz. They didn't flinch. I'm here to visit one of my oldest friends. He is on his way to be an Air Traffic Controller. He is also a Turf Master. He lives in an amazing adorable and vintage little house in an incredibly small town containing two Mexican restaurants, a plethora of tiny churches, and a Piggly Wiggly. It is hot out. Very hot and humid. I am in Fall mode. This could be fatal.
So I took a break. I was all over blogging about things I loved, and didn't love, things that were sparkly, or tasty, and often just beautiful. I hit a wall. Many things in my life crumbled. Not in the way that they are unable to get over, but very difficult, and draining, and none the less life altering. Things that change profiles...which reminds me that I should do that. I now live with my brother, his fiance, even though he doesn't like the word, and her brother, who is hilariously tall in such an old, small door-ed house. There are a total of four cats and one dog, Bender. We are doing a bizarre, non-singing Brady Bunch thing. Coffee is made daily by the teacher, it is then drank by the siblings who put away the dishes and reload the dishwasher every morning. The evenings include surprisingly comfortable couch sessions while watching Glee or House, commercial free, thanks to DVD-R. My room is painted and full of a crazy I can't hide, I am readjusting and getting to know a part of my new family. I silently chant my mantra from my time in the hospital "this will not kill me." Still sometimes its hard to see a light. Ironically, the hospital visit was a hell of a lot closer to killing me than this will. This is just bruised and broken, but more than anything, scared. I know will be OK, its never been a question of that. I am capable of putting of a bright face. Its just the journey of getting to OK that I need to deal with. So here's to a new start, the beginning of a long goes nothing.
