not feeling halloween so much this year...

so i dont want to spend money on a costume and its gotten late to come up with something crazy.
so i was thinking use things i have and go 50s, either housewife or pinup girl or something?
im leaning toward being a badass pinup girl cause i love me some betty page.


missing having my own house.

making a stop in anthropologie yesterday made me miss living on my own and being able to decorate and such, but sadly with the amount of student loans ill begin paying soon, im still stuck staying at my moms trying to save up money..

im so in love with this apron.

these measuring cups, just perfect.

and i just wish this serving dish was a tad less expensive.

i could so use one of these to organize all my odds and ends.

and this. my oh my. and outdoor daybed with built in plant holders all the way around.



pamela love's home in brooklyn via the selby.

how amazing is this place?..
do you think she'd mind if i moved in?


free is good.

i won the last giveaway over at pink lemonade design. 

i got a shopbop giftcard and this is what i bought.
just came in today and i cant wait to wear these goodies.


been seeing these pop up everywhere lately.

how perfect is this? vintage flower brooch bouquets.

i for sure need one whenever or maybe more like IF i ever get married.
i just googled and found all these photos, im tellin ya, theyre everywhere.


spaghetti squashes.

went down to a pumpkin farm the other week and got 2 squashes for 2 dollars. you cant beat that. and that adorable little pumpkin.. 70 cents.
the squashes made for a lovely dinner complete with bacon peanut butter cookies for dessert.

figured i should share the recipe though i never got pics of the cookies. they were my best batch yet and i was busy eatin em instead of takin photos. haha.
1 cup sugar (1/2 cup granulated, 1/2 cup brown sugar)
1 cup peanut butter (i found the best consistency comes from 1/2 smooth pb from a jar and 1/2 natural fresh crushed peanut butter, i got that at fresh market)
1 egg
1 tsp baking soda
6 slices of cooked, diced bacon (i actually prefer more like 8 or 9 slices)

fry up bacon, set aside to cool then dice. preheat oven to 350.
grease cookie sheet with butter, combine peanut butter and sugars until well mixed, about 2 minutes, add egg and baking soda, mix about another 2 minutes, fold in bacon. 
roll into balls and press a criss cross shape on top with a fork, you can even roll the ball in sugar if youd like more sweetness and sparkle. bake about 10 minutes or until lightly browned, cool about 5 minutes or so and then ... ENJOY!


my new dress got here today.

autumn things.

tis the time of season for wandering through cornfields.
my lovely friend kate took some photos the other week of us.

found me some acorns for makin jewelry.

and heres miss kate.


how amazing are these?

insanely beautiful leather masks made by tom banwell designs.


finally made some earrings for the shop.

electro-formed some pine tree branches that the needles had fallen off of. quite an interesting form they make. and this blue is my favorite.



lovely bone.

got some wonderful colors in the patina (this photo does it no justice but you can click it to see it bigger) but now the question is what kind of chain or what have you do i pair it with?...


etsy is harder then i thought..

more new things.. but still not a single sale yet.

any suggestions?


the dog wanted to be part of the photo.

found this for less than 3 bucks. it needed to be taken in a bit but for that price it was worth the time to make it fit perfect.


made some earrings for myself.

from plastic toys i found...

...to copper earrings. finished with a dark patina.
