New Moo

plague of pigeons moo stickers

Yay! I love the Yay! sticker that comes on new goodies from Moo! I just got some new business cards and stickers from them and I think they turned out pretty cute. I had some cards from them before that I made using one of their cute pre-designed templates (if you're in the market for business cards, they have the best pre-done designs in my opinion!) but I was really excited to order some that I actually designed myself. Another super cool thing that Moo does is that you can order a set of business cards and have them all look different, so you could get cards with different pictures on each one if you wanted. There is a 10% off referral deal at Moo right now if you are interested http://www.moo.com/share/qrwp55, but mostly I just wanted to share my new goodies.

Gold Wallpaper


















I've really had gold wallpaper on my mind for some reason. I would love to add some gold accents to the wall behind my bed. I've really been thinking about what I want to do to that wall since it's the wall that makes the most sense in my house to use as some kind of crazy accent wall. I think the top 2 wallpapers are my favorites, but a little pricey for my budget, and the wall I'm thinking about is already painted over wallpaper so I don't know how crazy it might be to add another layer. Especially since I have no idea what I'm doing! It's probably more realistic to put up some kind of panel(s) or use gold paint to paint a pattern directly on the wall. Then I could maybe do some kind of pattern for most of/the middle of the wall and some kind of crazy free-form thing as it spreads out? Hmm... I think I'll have to think a little more before I actually start this project.

edit- after posting yesterday I learned that you can now design your own wallpaper and wall decals at Spoonflower! How cool is that? Of course, this just adds yet another option for what to do instead of narrowing down my choices...

Pretty Penny & Calivintage

I'm behind in getting around to posting this, but last Friday I went to Pretty Penny for the Calivintage pop-up shop and art show. It was packed! I ended up with a tote bag full of goodies, including the 2 Calivintage dresses below, (and the orange shirt and blue dress in the background of the dressing room pic), had some wine, and bought the super cute bunny and wolf prints below.

Shirley Temple




So, did you guess who I'm going to be for Halloween yet? Yep, Shirley Temple! She was my hero as a kid, and was my inspiration for taking tap and dance classes. For some reason she popped into my head when I was thinking of possible Halloween costumes, and later the same day I found tap shoes in my size at a thrift store so I figured it was meant to be! When I started looking for pictures of her on the internet, it was immediately obvious that I wouldn't need to buy a dress or outfit for my costume since she apparently is still my style icon and I have plenty of dresses that would work. The hard part is going to be the hair. When I was little, I took any chance I could get to make my mom put my hair in curlers so I could have hair like Shirley's, but I don't know if I can do it on my own. I had a hard time narrowing down the pictures of her to put in this post, so here are a bunch of (though not all!) my favorites.
