one of those dark, wet days

hello fall.

This morning was officially the first morning I walked my dogs with my coffee in the dark. with an umbrella. I am not ready for this kind of weather to start quite yet.

RIP uncle Bill

for those frosty mornings...

love love love this local line of scarves and knitted wonders. far from that scratchy stuff we remember when we were little ones this bc homegrown line uses alpaca wool that's super soft. Terri Potratz is a genius. I want one of these this winter!

oh bettie paige

recently I discovered the movie The Notorious Bettie Paige. loved it. my eyes are now open to the world of the pin ups. wide, wide open.

I know some ladies that once posed for a pin up style shoot and I think I may try to get permission to post the photos... but until then these hollywood ladies will have to do.

Some love stories aren't epic novels, some are short stories

but this series was. the script, the characters, the clothes, the shoes. the way it talked about things that were rarely spoken. all of it. just epic. It made women laugh. cry. understand that although shoes may not make or break the deal, they certainly helped.

the newstands are being flooded with sneaks and peeks of the new movie right now so I thought I would look back at the first feature film.

love the gloves. love the clutch. love the hair. love the phone booth... there's a nostalgia to using those dirty old things. I wonder if someday they'll be gone from this part of town.


I want I want I want

handmade. red. gold studded. leather. strappy. fantastic.

beautiful spaces

Filled with natural light, the white really opens up the space. I absolutely love the white with the black and green.

nothing like the heavy use of white to make the green plants really pop. I try to incorporate plants into my living space. bringing my garden into my home really appeals to me. and my soul.

I heard green is a healing colour.
