i know it's been a while, but i had problems with my computer for a little bit... got a new printer and then ran into some other issues with dell! sorry... (marta, i know you're frustrated). but i'm back!


Finds from Laverty's

just about everything in this entry is from Laverty's from waco, tx. it's a wonderful place that offers excellent "junk" at excellent prices. i am always guaranteed a good find every time i go!

lace, ribbon, tulle, music sheets, jewelry, flowers, vintage tools, vases, books, old medical contraptions... you name it, they'll have it!

i photographed my ribbon collection and posted it so that two months from now i wouldn't forget where i stored it !!!

the happy end!!!!!!!!!



i whisper into the night--
swallow me whole;
let me not see the sun
before you strap me down
and give me what is mine.
but alas, you are not the form
that charges over me.
still, i am enveloped in your world.
your spells transform amorphic dreams
into words known only by my pen
and only by my paper.


Quick somethings...

i just wanted to add a little, quick something. i have lots of new stuff that i need to sort out, display and photograph. i am running very behind on things.
vintage lace from a little shop around the corner... i go gaga for aged lace. fragile, soft, and perfect.
office desk clutter. ZZZZ- is for Zacky, who stole my heart.
recorded on this scrap of paper, is something that alex says constantly..."i need your help, mommy!"
delicate antique millinery feathers is subtle hues of pink and blue.
with ribbon from etsy and scrapbooking leftovers.
the sweet end...for now.


Junk Addiction

there is so much i collect, it seems at times that there is not enough space for it all. where do people put stuff? on top of other stuff?-- i mean people like me...who collect and collect and collect...if you're reading this , that might mean you too!
seriously...what happens when beautiful junk (ans i know you know what i mean) looks junky?! there has to be an art to layering and grouping things, i know. but i've got stuff pouring out the wazoo right now.
i fallen for this color scheme right now: gold, cream, and black...you know, tattered lace, rusty tools, antique ivory dice.
just can't stop shopping, though. you never know what amazing treasure you'll find!...you just never know.
love these shoes i found at marta's room in belton.
pink seems to be the obsession of the moment, though it's going on 5 years now...so maybe it's more than a fleeting affair. i think recently i gave myself "permission" to love it and enjoy using it wherever i wished. it's just pink is so cliche' and i always made myself walk away, though inside i was dying to paint everything in sight pink!
i guess the older you get, the less you care about what others think.
my office desk...i love this place and spend most of my free time here scouring the internet, shopping, posting, editing photos, and playing vampire wars on face book. (it's so silly that i am so addicted!)
