map art

beautiful map art by elisabeth lecourt
found via swissmiss


when i was in catholic school, part of the uniform for the kids under sixth grade was wearing a little plaid tie. i came across these and was so excited, just had to share. a little more grown up and fashionable, but wonderfully reminiscent of the old school days.

black and silver

Strange Finds

This weekend my girlfriend and I found one of the strangest cologne bottles I've ever seen. We were at a local antique mall, and while I was purchasing a vintage necklace at the register, she found an odd bottle of cologne with Abraham Lincoln on the front.

It looked very distinguished, and since fate brought her to this amazing piece, she knew she had to purchase it. On the ride to the next place, we started naming which presidents we thought were the most sexy and drafting ideas for starting a presidential line of cologne.

I did some interneting (my new favorite made up word) and found some bottles on ebay and etsy... and there's even one of George Washington! Apparently Avon made these in 1970. I can't say it smelled very good. I think President Lincoln deserved a much sexier scent.... just look at that bone structure!


Tomorrow is Mister Rogers birthday, he would have been 80 years old. I think most people my age watched Mister Rogers growing up, and for most, hearing his voice is still very moving. PBS Kids has his songs listed here... I've spent a good portion of my evening going through them and listening to them all.

I feel very lucky to share the same birthday as Mister Rogers and I feel very lucky to have his show as a part of my childhood.

You'll find many ways to say I love you.
You'll find many ways to understand what love is.
Many ways, many ways,
Many ways to say I love you.

today i went to a new place.. sprinkles cupcakes! i bought some extra to share, but i'm not sure if they're going to last long enough - so delicious!

it was really warm today and i can tell spring is coming because there are lots of bugs crawling around the house and my cats are quite entertained.

here are some fun little clocks i found by IMOTIME.. there's even a bedpan clock!

have you seen pashupatina's jewelry before? these amazing, sculptural necklaces seem to sell out minutes after she posts them. i'm still heartbroken that i missed my chance on the white necklace above. can't wait until she updates her site again!

quirky day

it's snowing in texas! unfortunatley, the snow isn't sticking to the ground, so we'll probably wake up to a sheet of ice on the streets and no snow day. but that's ok... it's been so long since i've seen snow, it's quite exciting. it's been a day full of silly things like bollywood workout videos, so i thought i would leave you with these kitty wigs...
